Infra-Red Laser Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive way to tighten skin without surgery to help reverse some of the signs of ageing. It uses a broadband spectrum of infra-red light which heats up the water content in the skin, causing the surrounding collagen to contract and tighten, and the body’s own natural healing process then starts producing new collagen to further tighten the overall appearance of the skin over several months. It is not designed to treat large areas of loose skin, such as after massive weight-loss, which may be better suited to surgical approaches; but is suitable for treating small areas of lax and redundant skin on the abdomen (e.g. post pregnancy tummy), thighs and underarms and to tone, lift and tighten skin on the face and neck. Results do vary significantly between individuals. Prices can range from approximately £200 – £750 per session for areas such as the whole face or abdomen (tummy).
Having it for the first time?
Infra-red light is delivered in pulses from a bespoke hand piece placed on the skin to the targeted area. This energy is preferentially absorbed by the water content of the skin; heating up the water and causing uniform heating of the treated area. This heat acts on the existing collagen, causing it to immediately contract and tighten. No anaesthetic is required. Most people will require 2 treatments, spaced a month apart.
