Botox has been the popular way to get rid of wrinkles and frown lines in the face for a while. A simple injection is able to relax the clenched facial muscle to create smoother skin. Chemical peels have commonly been used to smooth out facial skin and there are even more invasive procedures which include face lifts. But now there is a new procedure that can create these results easier and more effectively.
London medical has begun providing Aluma treatments. Aluma is made by Lumines Aesthetic and it employs the revolutionary radio frequency technology. This treatment conveys energy into the underlying layers of skin and stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen helps the skin to stay elastic and smooth. This treatment requires no cutting and is painless, without the use of anesthetic. This treatment is designed to be used on anyone with mild to moderate wrinkles and is not restricted to any skin types. It is typically used on the neck, and studies have shown that it may be efficient when used on the abdomen, knees, and arms.
The treatment at London Medical can be used on the face and neck areas and is performed by trained nurses. It is offered under the guidance of recognized consultant dermatologists and is very safe and efficient. The treatment normally last around 15 minutes and requires no recovery time or special care. Patients can get rid of wrinkles on their lunch break and then return to work. The effect of this procedure is considered to be long-lasting. Eventually age will catch back up with a person and wrinkles will start to reform but it is not considered to be temporary like Botox.
Another treatment offered at London Medical, that uses radiofrequency assisted technology, is the Bodytite liposuction procedure. This procedure uses a much higher amount of energy to create a heat that liquefies the fat cells which are then sucked out of the body. The heating also allows for collagen contraction which tightens the surrounding skin.
Getting rid of wrinkles when they begin is a dream come true for some people. Most people want to fight of the signs of aging any way that they can. Now, with Aluma treatments, wrinkles can be smoothed out and skin made to look tighter and smoother. These treatments are quick and painless and the results are amazing. Aluma could be the future of skin tightening procedures.
