Infrared Skin Tightening - The Finer Details



For anyone that did not already know, when it comes to achieving skin which appears to be rejuvenated, one of the best procedures to achieve this is infrared skin tightening. It is a complex treatment which has been recently developed, and promises to achieve better results than those which can be gotten through the use of shop-bought creams. As skin specialists, here at Woodford Medical we are proud to be able to offer this treatment to our clients. However, we understand that you may not be fully-versed on what it entails, and how beneficial it can be for you. Should you wish to learn about the finer details, all you need to do is continue reading below.

What Happens During?

In Layman’s terms, what occurs during this procedure involves a concentrated, yet safe, amount of infrared light being directed at the skin. This is capable of penetrating through numerous layers of skin; the result of this is that the water contained within the skin is heated up. Following on from this, the collagen fibres in this local area of the body subsequently contract, ensuring that your skin is no longer loose. It is important to note that you are able to enjoy the results of this procedure as soon as you leave the clinic - downtime is non-existent.

What Are The Overall Benefits?

In a way, one of the primary benefits associated with infrared skin tightening is that, compared to the alternative treatments, it is rather smooth-and-seamless. There is no pain during or after you leave the clinic, with side effects being extremely rare; this is the complete opposite to such procedures as laser resurfacing and chemical peels. In terms of your skin’s condition, you will be able to enjoy a refreshed and youthful appearance - the skin, for up to two year, will retain its firmness, and will resist the effects of ageing.

How Many Treatments?

This is something which is up to the discretion of each individual patient, and typically depends on what the results are after the first session. There have been cases where, after the initial treatment, the desired results have been achieved, meaning that a follow-up isn’t necessary. However, in most cases, it is advised to attend for a minimum of three sessions. This ensures that the collagen in the skin is properly activated, and so first-class results are assured.

How Long For Results To Be Apparent?

One of the most pleasing things associated with undergoing infrared skin tightening is that you are able to reap the rewards almost immediately. This is, in part, due to the slight swelling that is caused by the radiation which is used. However, this will have faded in the twenty four hours following your session - after this, you will certainly be able to noticed a smoother feel to your skin.
