SKIN TIGHTENING | CELLULITE
What is Infrared Skin Tightening?
The Soprano Infrared Skin Tightening laser system is an effective, safe and non-surgical procedure for tightening the skin through stimulating collagen rebuilding, leading to younger looking skin. This anti-ageing treatment uses lasers to restore the tone and tautness of the skin with no down time, minimal discomfort and at a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery.
How does it work?
The Soprano Infrared Skin Tightening Laser delivers a beam of high-intensity infrared light, using a handheld nozzle, 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.
How long does it take?
The procedure usually takes between a few minutes and 30 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 six treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin in your face, arms, abdomen, and other areas.
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?
The results of infrared skin tightening can last for one to two years after treatment.
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. You may find this uncomfortable depending on your pain threshold.
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.
