HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Infrared Skin Tightening Laser delivers a beam of high-intensity infrared light, using a handheld applicator that deeply penetrates the skin tissue.
The light heats up the water content of your skin which stimulates the collagen in the skin causing it to contract and tighten. Your body’s own natural healing process will also start to produce new collagen to further tighten the overall appearance of your skin over several months. The procedure will be explained to you by our qualified laser practitioners, who will answer any questions you may have.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The procedure usually takes 30 – 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments you will need will depend on the area being treated and condition of your skin.
A series of up to six treatments at 2-3 week intervals is usually recommended to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will notice an immediate improvement following treatments, however you will see further improvements develop gradually over a period of 1 – 3 months as new collagen is formed and your skin tightens further.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Results can be maintained with just one or two single treatments a year.
WILL IT HURT?
Treatment is generally considered by most people to be ‘near’ painless, with only a warm sensation or feeling of heat felt during the treatment.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, swelling or redness in the treated area, which often fades within a few hours of treatment and seldom lasts more than a few days. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.
