The West Institute is thrilled to be offering Allumera as the first in a new class of photodynamic cosmetics.

What is Allumera?
Allumera is a new, topical cream specifically formulated to improve the overall appearance of skin, reduce the outward signs of aging and minimize the appearance of pores with minimal downtime and results that last!

What are the Results?
In a five-month controlled study, people experienced a 44% reduction in the appearance of their pores three months after their last treatment.*

In a survey conducted three months after their last Allumera treatment*:

  •     93% of people said their skin felt softer.
  • 91% of people said their skin felt more hydrated, moisturized and smoother.
  • 89% of people said their skin texture was improved.
  • 86% of people said their skin looked and felt healthier.
  • The majority of people said they would recommend Allumera to a friend.

How is Allumera applied?
Allumera is applied to the face and then bathes the skin for 60 minutes. The cream is then washed off and activated by exposing the skin to a source of light left to the discretion of the healthcare professional. Each Allumera treatment takes approximately one hour and for optimal results, three Allumera treatments are recommended spaced four weeks apart.

How is it different?
Allumera is a non-invasive treatment option that will reduce the appearance of pores, and greatly improve skin tone and texture. “I’m excited to be the first physician in the Washington, D.C. area to offer Allumera. I look for new and innovative treatments that my patients can receive the most benefit from, and I feel Allumera will address so many needs. With the treatment’s ability to offer skin revitalization, pore reduction and surface improvement with minimal downtime, Allumera is a perfect fit for my practice and our motto, ‘Think maintenance instead of surgery,’” said Dr. Tina West of The West Institute. Allumera is well-tolerated and fills the gap for those looking for more than a chemical peel, but wish to avoid more invasive procedures. For more information about Allumera, visit
