The Soprano XLI Near-Infrared Skin Tightening laser is a new and effective treatment for improving skin laxity without surgery or downtime. The power of Soprano XL Near-Infrared (NIR) Skin Tightening at Golden Pulse Laser Clinic is a new solution to eliminate some of the effects that time can have on your skin appearance, tone and laxity. NIR is a safe infrared light that heats the tissue under the skin’s surface, tightening skin laxity and improving skin architecture. Heating the tissue deep below the surface of the skin causing collagen fibers to contract and tighten and stimulates the formation of new collagen, further enhancing the tightening effect and helping to strengthen the skin against future aging.
NIR is safe for all skin types and pain-free. It can be used for most body areas where the tighter skin is desired, reducing the signs of aging. It is commonly used for the face, neck, upper arms, abdomen and hands. After treatment, you can expect the treated area to be slightly flushed. For most patients, this normally subsides within a few hours, although for some it may last for 24 hours. Makeup can be applied to the treatment and generally, you can go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.
Multiple treatments are required depending on your skin’s laxity, the area to be treated and the results you desire. Typically a course of up to six treatments is recommended at 2-4 week intervals. The complex process of new collagen formation means that the results will continue to improve and develop for up to 6 months after completion of your treatment course. Due to the continual ageing process, results typically last 1-2 years, however, we recommend that you have a maintenance treatment once or twice a year to maintain the stimulation of your collagens reproduction.
