Deep infrared skin tightening

While skin is one of the most resilient parts of the body, it does accumulate damage. Age, exposure to the sun and illness can detract from the skin’s ability to maintain itself, which in turn leads to age, wrinkles and a long list of unwelcome skin conditions. The problem with treating these conditions revolves around the available approaches for skin rejuvenation. Facelifts have been the golden standard for skin tightening, but they require painful and long recovery periods. The Palomar Deep IR laser is a breakthrough in non-surgical skin tightening. It utilizes a unique approach to aiding the skin in its natural rejuvenation processes, which in turn leads to non-surgical skin tightening.

The Palomar Deep IR laser tightens skin by applying heat to the skin. It does so in a controlled way that leads to the rejuvenation of skin cells, which in turn allows the collagen structures in the dermis to tighten.The laser component is what gives the Palomar Deep IR laser its ability to rejuvenate the skin. It passes harmlessly through healthy structures, such as the cells responsible for giving skin its color, and penetrates deeply into the skin.

This light transforms into heat once it reaches the collagen beneath the skin, which in turn leads to coagulation of the old skin cells. The body will remove the undesirable collagen cells and then replace them with new structures. This leads to an overall improvement in the texture and form of your skin.

Benefits of the Deep IR skin tightening includes:

  • Dramatic reduction in fine lines and wrinkles – By encouraging the dermis layer of skin to rejuvenate, new collagen forms as the result of treatment with the Palomar Deep IR laser. This leads to a visible reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and many other form-related issues.
  • Effective skin tightening without surgery – The Palomar Deep IR laser tightens skin without the need for a single incision, which in turn makes it friendlier for the patient to undergo.
  • Comfortable and quick procedures – The typical Palomar Deep IR laser treatment can be delivered in less than an hour, which is a fraction of the time that cosmetic surgery like a facelift would require. This allows you to receive treatment without stopping your life.
  • Reduced complications – Because there is no surgery involved with it, the Palomar Deep IR laser provides the patient with a heightened degree of safety when tightening the skin. This leads to fewer complications, and means that patients will experience only brief episodes of tenderness or redness after receiving treatment.

Are these treatments safe? Are they comfortable?

The Lux Deep IR Fractional method is much safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of many other systems, because it leaves a portion of the skin unaffected by the light pulses. The Lux Deep IR also uses 3-stage cooling. It cools the skin before, during and after each light pulse, so you feel little discomfort during the treatment.

What should I expect after the treatment?

You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Because a portion of the skin is unaffected by the light pulses, there is a quick healing process. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time. A series of treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of tighter skin in the face, neck, abdomen, and other areas.
