Are you disturbed by the presence of lines and wrinkles when you view yourself in the mirror? You may even notice some sagging of the skin. This may cause you to start searching for ways to enjoy tight skin once again. If you are in a situation like this, you might want to take a closer look at Aluma for non-invasive skin tightening. This method may be even more attractive to you if you prefer to stay away from surgical procedures like facelifts and the associated discomfort and downtime.
Aluma treatment works by stimulating the skin to tighten itself by growing additional collagen. Collagen is a protein that is found in the deeper layers of the skin. It is naturally produced by the body and serves the purpose of helping tissue to stick together. It also provides fullness to the skin. As you grow older, your body will slow its rate of collagen production. This causes the skin to loosen. The natural consequence of loose skin is the development of those unwanted signs of aging. The skin can begin to sag. It will also start to develop lines and wrinkles in certain places.
Aluma is an innovative treatment method that affects the layer of skin beneath the surface. It is here that the collagen growth takes place. As carefully controlled energy is transmitted, it will warm the skin tissue. This will cause the process of growing additional collagen to begin. As the collagen levels increase, the skin will become tighter accordingly. The growth of collagen is a gradual process that takes place in the months following treatment.
Aluma non-invasive skin tightening treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. With the energy directed toward the dermis, the epidermis, or outer layer of skin, is left undisturbed. There is no need for a period of downtime after the treatment.
The number of treatment sessions that are necessary to get the desired results will vary from patient to patient. As a rule of thumb, however, you can plan on a series of treatment sessions.
