IPL Skin Tightening
A unique facial rejuvenation option that produces dramatic results, laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance.
IPL skin tightening ( intense pulsed light skin tightening ) is a minimally invasive, face lift, non-surgical procedure that uses an infrared light source (IPL) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface causing the skin to contract (tighten).
The Palomar LuxIR Fractional™ Infrared Handpiece delivers infrared light deep into the dermis. This light causes soft tissue coagulation which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis. The remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging, for overall skin tightening.
Rather than using one large beam to deliver infrared light into the skin, the LuxIR uses the “Fractional” approach: delivering an array of small beams. Each beam creates a heated column in the dermis, which is surrounded by an unaffected area. The unaffected tissue stimulates quicker collagen remodeling, and faster healing.
The LuxIR Fractional method is much safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of many other systems because it leaves so much of the skin unaffected by the light pulses.
The LuxIR also uses 3-stage Cooling. It cools the skin before, during, and after each light pulse, so you feel little discomfort during treatment.
You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Because so much of the skin is unaffected by the light pulses, there is a quick healing process. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.
A series of treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin in the face, arms, abdomen, and other areas.
Although fantastic results are achieved with the first session, a minimum of six treatments is recommended for long-lasting results. These treatments are usually preformed every two weeks. After the first six sessions, you should receive treatments once a month to maintain your youthful-looking skin.
