NIR Skin Tightening
Sagging jowls, a turkey neck, droopy eyelids and brow … who just loves these tell-tale signs of getting older?
Most people DON’T cherish their laugh-lines. Nor do they value the facial sagginess that accompanies getting older, NIR Skin Tightening is a ideal solution to this common concern.
This procedure gives tightening of the skin utilising safe, NIR light that triggers a biological response. This response leads to collagen remodelling in the deeper dermal layers and can help smooth out fine wrinkles and sagging skin.
NIR light heats the tissue deep below the skins surface causing collagen fibres to contract, tighten and stimulate new growth, creating long term results. The bodies own natural healing process also starts to produce new collagen, to continue improvement over subsequent months.
NIR is useful in any facial or body area, where there is loose or lax skin. Positive and long term results can be found in areas such as the neck, jowls and jawline, areas that have traditionally been difficult to treat in any other way than surgery. It is also useful for improving thin, crepey skin or any areas where there is distinct collagen loss.
A series of treatments produces a tighter, fresher appearance -without pain or invasive procedures. . The Skin Tightening NIR treatment is also part of Renew LaseriQ a treatment internationally recognized by aesthetic laser consumers.
How does NIR Skin Tightening work?
NIR Skin Tightening is a non-surgical procedure that uses a safe, infra-red light to heat the lower layer of your skin (dermis). The light gently heats up the water content in your tissue to a level at which natural collagen contracts and shrinks to produce a tightening effect. The heat also stimulates fibroblasts which repairs cells in your skin to produce new collagen.
NIR Skin Tightening causes the deep structures of your skin to gradually tighten; therefore, results may not be immediately visible. Over time, your skin will slowly produce new, healthier cells, while rebuilding fresh collagen. Because your body’s natural process of producing new collagen takes time, full results from your Skin Tightening treatment series may not be achieved until up to 6 months after your last Skin Tightening treatment.
Is it safe?
There are few risks associated with NIR Skin Tightening. Because it does not involve any surgical incisions,NIR Skin Tightening is a considerably safer method for achieving younger-looking skin than face lift procedures, and it is less costly as well. During your treatment you may experience a temporary warming sensation. Although extremely rare, other temporary side effects may include sensitive skin, a change in skin colour, and localized bruising.
How long do the results last for?
The process of new collagen formation takes about 6 months, so the final results of the procedure will be realized approximately 6 months after the completion of your treatment series. Results typically last between 1-2 years; however, we recommend an annual or bi-annual NIR Skin Tightening treatment to maintain the stimulation of your collagen reproduction.
Requires multiple treatments.
