The practice of aesthetic medicine has been around for years. In the recent past, there has been a significant increase in the use of cosmetic injectable treatments. A more comprehensive understanding of facial aging and advanced treatment techniques is unfolding, lending to beautifully natural results. Aluma was established in 2018 to serve patients with expertise and precision. Locally owned and operated, we are humbled to be a part of Portland’s creative, small business community.
