What is Near Infrared (NIR) Skin Tightening?

Near infrared (NIR) skin tightening helps naturally stimulate the production of collagen and reduce signs of ageing, skin sagging and crepeyness. This is a non surgical, non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, which will help your skin appear brighter, firmer and more youthful after a course of treatments.

Commonly nicknamed “lunch-time skin tightening”, the NIR experience requires little to no downtime and can take 30 to 45 minutes (depending on the scale of the area treated) to complete. Unlike most chemical peels, laser resurfacing and skin needling procedures, NIR technology does not affect the top layer of the skin, so you can head straight back to the office post-treatment.

How does NIR Skin Tightening work?

NIR uses infrared light energy to penetrate the tissue under the skin surface, in the deeper layers of the skin. The light energy heats the water in the skin tissue, and causes the collagen fibres to contract and tighten. It also stimulates fibroblasts to repair skin cells, which helps smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.

Where can NIR treatment be used?

NIR has both a face and body handpiece, which means the treatment can be used on multiple areas depending on your concerns. Common areas to be treated on the face include chin and jowls, crows feet, forehead, neck and décolletage. Common areas for treatment on the body include the upper arms, hands, abdomen and thighs.

Is the NIR Skin Tightening treatment painful?

The treatment shouldn’t be painful, though the building of heat may be slightly uncomfortable at times.

Who is a suitable candidate

NIR is suitable for all skin types, meaning most people are suitable candidates for this treatment. The only people who may not get their desired results would have extremely poor skin laxity pre-treatment.

How many treatments are recommended?

3-6 treatments, with 2-3 week intervals between treatments. Few people need up to 8 treatments.
