How does the skin tightening treatment work?
The infrared skin tightening system is a way produce a rejuvenating effect in the face, neck and other parts of the body. By causing the skin to ccontract, the signs of ageing are reduced without the need for surgery.
During treatment a pulse of light passes through the epidermis and causes the water content of the skin to be heated while the surface is simultaneously cooled. This raised temperature in turn causes the skin collagen to contract producing an initial tightening effect. However the main effect takes place over the following weeks as the skin's natural healing process responds to the treatment by building new collagen. This natural process continues for several months, producing progressively more tightening and leading to a younger appearance.
By increasing the taughtness of the skin the appearance of fine line and wrinkles are also reduced.
