NIR Facial Skin Tightening Treatment
Safe, non-surgical skin tightening
As we grow older, most of us find we would appreciate the benefits of a smoother complexion and younger-looking skin. Feeling good about our appearance brings increased self-confidence and a sense of well-being that’s anything but skin deep.
Here at the Dorchester Clinic, we’re pleased to offer sophisticated Soprano NIR (near-infrared) skin-tightening techniques to treat age-related skin imperfections such as wrinkling and fine lines. Near-infrared technology uses lasers to stimulate deep skin tissue causing the collagen fibres to contract which results in the skin tightening. Soprano skin tightening is a clinically proven, tried-and-tested solution which is equally effective when applied to all skin types.
An excellent alternative for anyone reluctant to commit to a surgical procedure, the treatment is frequently used to address issues affecting delicate areas such as the face, neck and décolleté.
How Soprano skin-tightening works
Near-infrared skin tightening involves the use of advanced laser technology to form a beam of high-intensity light. This beam gradually raises the temperature of the skin, penetrating its outer layers to cause a photo-thermal reaction on the dermis and sub-dermis. This stimulates your body’s natural healing process, so you produce new collagen and elastin, as well as experiencing a beneficial contraction of the collagen that’s already present in your skin.
The results are fast and effective. Our clients find that their skin is firmer with a more youthful glow. The treatment also acts to strengthen the skin’s own defences against the effects of future ageing.
What to expect from your treatment
Rest assured that most people find Soprano skin tightening to be entirely painless; all you’re likely to feel is a gentle warmth. Near-infrared treatment is non-invasive, involves no down-time and is effective for both men and women.
The procedure normally takes somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated. This also determines how many treatments you’re likely to need, although typically six sessions with us, spaced at intervals of two or three weeks, should be enough to produce the successful results you’re looking for. You’re likely to see an improvement right away, and the appearance of your skin will continue to get better over a period of one to three months.
One or two treatments a year will then help you to maintain your smoother, tighter skin.
