Near Infrared Skin Tightening

Over time, the effects of aging and sun exposure can take their toll, leaving skin imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone and skin laxity. Utilising the high-powered Near Infrared (NIR) technology, we can enhance your natural beauty, revealing smoother, younger and healthier-looking skin.

Near Infrared technology is a safe infrared light that heats the tissue under the skin’s surface, tightening skin laxity and improving skin architecture. Heating the tissue deep below the skin's surface will cause your collagen fibres to contract and tighten. This stimulates the formation of new collagen, further enhancing the tightening effect.

NIR is suitable for all skin types and most areas of the body, including areas of skin with cellulite.

NIR is an effective treatment for the following body areas:

  • chin and jowls
  • crow’s feet
  • forehead
  • neck and décolleté
  • upper arms
  • hands
  • abdomen
  • thighs

The Near Infrared Skin Tightening laser is a new and effective treatment for improving skin laxity without surgery or downtime. The procedure uses a safe infrared light to heat the water content in the tissue deep below the skin's surface, causing collagen fibres to contract and tighten to smooth out fine lines and sagging skin. The heat also stimulates fibroblasts, which repairs cells in your skin to produce new collagen, creating long term results.
NIR can be used on all skin types. However, prior to your treatment, we will take a full medical history to confirm suitability for treatment. You will also be asked to give informed consent. The procedure will be explained to you step-by-step. During this time, you are most welcome to ask any questions you may have. You will be provided with verbal or written after care instructions. We may make a recommendation for home care to further enhance your results. The treatment is generally considered to be painless, with only a warm sensation or feeling of heat felt during the treatment. It typically takes 20-60 minutes, depending on the body area being treated.
You should notice your skin looking firmer immediately after the treatment. This may be partly due to slight swelling, which is a normal side effect of NIR skin tightening.

When this mild swelling subsides (within 12 to 24 hours), the treated skin will feel smoother and you will see a visible improvement.

However, the most significant results will happen gradually over the following 2 or 3 months. This is due to the tightening effect that becomes more visible as the skin forms new collagen.
Multiple treatment sessions are required depending on your skin’s laxity, the area to be treated and the results you desire. Typically, a course of up to six treatments is recommended at 3 to 4 week intervals. However, due to new collagen formation, the results will continue to improve and develop for up to 3 months after completion of your treatment course. Your results typically last 1-2 years. We recommend that you have a maintenance treatment once or twice a year to maintain the stimulation of your collagen reproduction.
After your treatment, you can expect the treated area to be slightly flushed. For most patients, this normally subsides within a few hours, although for some it may last up to 24 hours. Makeup can be applied after the treatment and you can go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.
• The application of cold compresses after the treatment may be recommended
• No exercise for 12 hours
• No heat or heat treatments to the face for up to 7 days
• No direct sun exposure or sun beds for 28 days post-treatment
