Infrared Skin Tightening
Is sagging skin bringing you down?
Lift your spirits and your jowls with Infrared Skin Tightening
At Light Touch Laser Clinic we find the Soprano Infrared Skin Tightening laser system to be an effective, safe and non-surgical method to reverse the signs of sagging from aging and loss of elasticity in the skin. This treatment effectively stimulates collagen to rebuild itself which leads to younger, firmer skin with no downtime or discomfort. The treatment is fast and although gives face-lift comparable results, is a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery (and no downtime or anesthetic!).
During the treatment the Soprano Infrared Skin Tightening Laser sends a beam of high-intensity infrared light that penetrates the skin’s tissue very deeply. This light beam heats up the water that is in your skin. This deep heating effect stimulates the collagen in your own skin, causing it to contract and tighten immediately so you get fast results.
The benefits don’t stop there though. Laboratory testing has proven that in approximately 6 months, you will see added increased tightening and firming results because your body’s natural healing process will also produce new collagen but at a slower rate to further tighten the overall appearance of your skin. In other words, clients notice an immediate improvement following their treatments, however they always see further improvements develop gradually over a period of 5-6 months after as their new collagen is formed and therefore skin tightens further.
The procedure usually takes between ten and thirty minutes depending on the area(s) being treated and is very popular in areas of visible aging due to lost elasticity such as jowls, droopy mouth corners, falling eye brows and thin turkey necks. Clients treat areas such as faces, sagging arms, and loose abdomens.
The number of infrared skin tightening treatments a client generally needs depends greatly on the area being treated and the condition of the skin in that area. Typically a series of 6 treatments spaced at 4-6 week internals is required to achieve the optimal desired result of smooth, tight, firm skin and the results can last up to two years after the treatment.
Although the odd client may find this procedure to be uncomfortable depending on their pain threshold, most people would call this treatment painless with only a warm sensation and feeling of heat felt on the area being treated. After the treatment clients may experience a lingering warmth with slight swelling but this quickly disappears within a few hours of the treatment. Generally, you can go back to work or to other activities without any recovery or down time needed.
