Allumera is a new photodynamic therapy used to decrease hyperpigmentation, pore size, and fine lines and wrinkles – all in a few treatment sessions. Dr. Downie was involved in the clinical trials for Photocure. She and her patients have seen very good to excellent results. This topical cream, suitable for all skin types, for men and women, is distinctively formulated to improve every aspect of the skin's appearance as it reduces signs of aging. Allumera is a gentle treatment; therefore it involves minimal downtime, but provides lasting results.
During an appointment for an Allumera treatment, Dr. Downie will apply this luxurious cream to your face, which must stay on one hour while you relax. The formula is well-tolerated, but some patients feel a mild stinging sensation as it works. Then the cream is wiped off your face, and facial skin is exposed to a red light source called the OmniLux for about ten minutes. These sessions should be completed about once a month for three to four months in order to see full results. Maintenance includes an every six month visit for a follow-up.
Allumera is an effective and affordable alternative to Fraxel re:store and chemical peels. It can do so much for your skin – improve the texture, tone, hydration, pore size, and reduce lines and wrinkles without an invasive, surgical procedure.
The effectiveness of Allumera is well-documented. In a five month clinical study, patients experienced a 44 percent reduction in the appearance of pores after just three treatments! The majority (86 to 93 percent) of patients treated with Allumera reported that their skin felt softer, smoother, more moisturized, and healthier. They said they would recommend this treatment to friends and family.
Dr. Downie continues to be on the cutting edge of technology, continually offering new procedures and treatments. Her goal is to make patients look and feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside.
