Iowa Plastic Surgery is thrilled to be offering Allumera, as the first in a new class of photodynamic cosmetics.

What is Allumera?
Allumera is a 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 with minimal downtime. “We are pleased to offer Allumera as a way to help our patients improve their skin faster and better than before,” said Dr. Van Raalte. 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
