Predictable and virtually pain-free, the Aluma skin renewal system with FACES (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation) technology is a revolutionary approach to the treatment of wrinkles and ageing skin..
Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation
Lumenis uses a revolutionary technology called FACES (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation) to conform the skin to allow radio frequency energy to pass through the epidermis and gently heat the deeper dermal tissue. Treatement is virtually painless. In the months following treatment, the body's natural processes lay down new collagen which is thicker, more organized and has a structure similar to that found in younger and less damaged skin. The result is a smoother, firmer and more youthful look.
Exclusive FACES Technology
The Aluma handpiece uses vacuum to fold the skin, ensuring contact and positioning the dermis in direct alignment with the path of radio frequency. The combination of this vacuum positioning and the use of topical conductive coupling medium concentrate heat deep in the dermis, leading to collagen contraction and regeneration. The result is predictable, effective treatment that is virtually painless.
A coupling medium reduces the impedence of the epidermis allowing the RF energy to pass through it without creating heat. As the RF meets the impedance in the dermis, heat is generated. The result: safe and effective deep dermal heating with little or no discomfort.
About Radio Frequency
Radio frequency energy always takes the shortest path from source to ground. As it meets impedance in the tissue, heat is generated. For effective treatment of wrinkles and fine lines, heat must be created deep in the dermis without injuring the epidermis. RF systems come in three basic configurations: monopolar, flush bipolar, and Aluma's parallel bipolar design.
Skin Renewal for Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Radio Frequency(RF) Technology: Proven in clinical studies to improve skin texture
Bipolar RF Delivery: Precisely controls the volume of tissue heated
Gentle: Low risk, virtually pain-free wrinkle removal that is easily tolerated without anesthesia
No Downtime: Innovative FACES technology bypasses the epidermis so patients can immediately return to normal activities
Rapid Treatment: A typical treatment takes 30 minutes
Easy: Intuitive touchscreen interface with computerized treatment presets ensure ideal personalised settings for all patients
Safe: Vacuum assisted bipolar handpiece focuses RF energy precisely where it can have the maximum effect. Heat conduction to the epidermis and non-target tissue is minimized
Unique Ergonomic Handpiece
Aluma's ergonomic handpiece features a specially designed smart tip with an electronic safety mechanism and filter that prevents coupling medium from entering the handpiece. Each handpiece tip is unique to each patient preventing cross contamination.
