09 Jan All You Need To Know About Infrared Skin Tightening
These days, more and more people are seeking the assistance of a cosmetic physician for anti aging treatments designed to enhance new collagen stimulation. Collagen is the naturally occurring protein in all humans that provides the skin with its elasticity and youthfulness. As we get older and collagen begins to break down, various signs of ageing can begin to present themselves. Fine wrinkles might start to show and become deeper over time, and skin pigmentation might also change in certain areas. However, through treatments such as infrared skin tightening, collagen stimulation can provide anti aging benefits that help you look better for longer.
What is Infrared Skin Tightening?
Infrared skin tightening is a laser based anti aging procedure in which an experienced medical practitioner applies an infrared laser light source to the skin in order to heat the collagen beneath the surface. This causes the skin to tighten, which helps to reduce fine wrinkles and improve collagen stimulation. You’ll likely begin to see differences in appearance almost immediately after treatment, but you may need two or three treatments spaced a month apart for the best possible results.
You might be wondering what the best laser for skin tightening might be. At The DOC Clinic, we use the Alma Harmony NIR Near Infrared Technology module. This laser includes a selection of additional applicators including applicators for acne scarring, skin remodelling and more.
The NIR laser employs a high powered light source towards the near-infrared end of the spectrum that delivers effective heating beneath the skin. When using the NIR module, the practitioner typically has the choice of performing the treatment via a static delivery method or using its In-Motion approach, which applies a gradual build up of heat for optimal comfort.
