Skin Tightening

Smooth, Taught, Youthful Skin Need Not Be A Distant Memory! At The Laser Beautique we use Near Infrared Technology (NIR), a safe infrared light that heats the tissue under the skin’s surface to tighten skin laxity and improve skin architecture, infamous for Skin Tightening and a “Non-Surgical Facelift” experience, with minimal discomfort, no down time, and at a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery.

The NIR successfully treats a wide range of areas, including:

–  Skin tightening of body, face, and neck   –  Improves thin, crepey skin
–  Jowls and Jawline   –  Laxity of post-pregnancy abdominal skin
–  Laxity of buttocks and knees   –  Improving skin quality of décolleté
–  Hand dorsal rejuvenation  

Treatment Info

Our skin is the largest organ of our body that is tasked with protecting everything that is on the inside. Our skin barrier is extremely powerful in not allowing elements to penetrate and therefore topical lotions and serums have limitations whereby NIR successfully affects the epidermis and dermis (1st and middle layer of skin). You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. You can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time. A series of treatments at 2-4 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin, face, arms, abdomen, and other areas.

The Technology

NIR stimulates the infiltration of fibroblast and the formation of new collagen, enhancing the tightening effect, and helping to bolster the skin against future ageing. The presence of healthy collagen in the dermis helps maintain the skin’s youthful resiliency and texture. A combination of treatments is always more effective and therefore we recommend alternating bi-monthly. NIR is performed by using IN-Motion technique which ensures that the procedure is aggressive yet virtually painless for the patient.

–  Exposure to Sunlight –apply high-factor sun protection (SPF >30), and protect the treated area from exposure to direct sunlight for at least one month post-treatment. –  As long as you will experience a post-treatment skin irritation, you have to protect your skin with sun block and avoid any sun exposure that.
–  Tanning after treatment sessions may enhance melanin regeneration, which may result in hyperpigmentation. –  The planning of holidays to the sun in the week after the session is not recommended
–  Immediately after the session, a soothing cream/gel may be applied to calm down your skin. We recommend you purchase the RegimA post laser gel, which you can apply at home. –  Care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated area for the 24-48 hours following treatment: avoid hot baths, aerobic exercise, massage, etc.
–  Factors include: laxity of skin, collagen and elastin. –  A thermal water spray may also be refreshing.
–  Make-up, fragrance or deodorant may be applied the day after the session –  You may experience instant results after your first session or it may take a few treatments to see results. This all depends on the individual.
–  It is important to moisturize your skin properly (We recommend the RegimA post laser gel, Scar repair & Anti Stretch, the Ultralite massage (for extremely dry skin) or the famous Paw Paw toning and firming lotion)

Frequently Asked Questions

PAIN-FREE Skin Tightening /Body Contouring / Anti-Aging is for everyone. It’s safe for all skin types. The bottom line is – if you have any areas you would like to tighten or any part of your body you would like to contour, NIR is for you.

 

The NIR successfully treats a wide range of areas, including:

  • Skin tightening of body, face, and neck
  • Laxity of post-pregnancy abdominal skin
  • Laxity of buttocks and knees
  • Improving skin quality of décolleté
  • Hand dorsal rejuvenation

IN-Motion technology of the Soprano system allows us to deliver uniform energy distribution that produces dramatic, yet comfortable deep dermal heating without damage to the epidermis. This technology allows for a more aggressive yet pain-free treatment which stimulates quicker collagen remodelling, and faster healing.

Aesthetic Clinics have treated thousands patients using Near Infrared worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. You can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.

A series of treatments at 2-4 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin, face, arms, abdomen, and other areas.

Although fantastic results are achieved with the first session, a minimum of four to six treatments is recommended for long-lasting results. These treatments are usually preformed every two weeks. After the first six sessions, you should receive treatments once a month or every two months to maintain your youthful-looking skin.

Clinical studies suggest that at least two treatments are needed to stimulate new collagen growth and most people will begin to see benefits by the fourth treatment. Our medically trained aestheticians may recommend regular touch-up treatments to sustain the continued growth of new collagen as you age.
