If treating blemishes such as facial and body laxity was difficult…
NIR technology is an innovative system to fix the signs of aging such as wrinkles and skin laxity..
The purpose of the treatment is to relax the skin through the stimulation of collagen production.
Among the most frequently requested areas for this procedure are the forehead, jaw, neck, hands and abdomen.
What is NIR
The passage of time progressively shows its signs on our bodies, such as wrinkles, reduced elasticity, and laxity, making us appear less youthful and attractive. Apart from conventional solutions like fillers or botox, there is an innovative way: NIR.
NIR stands for Near-infrared and is a non-invasive solution that involves the emission of nanoparticles to stimulate collagen production.
Principle of operation of NIR
It has been proven that the use of infrared radiation is effective in treating certain skin conditions, particularly wrinkles and skin laxity.
NIR radiation is particularly effective in stimulating the body’s self-production of collagen, which leads to an increase in collagen in fibroblasts. This increase acts as an anti-wrinkle agent at the cosmetic level.
How the treatment works
First, the patient must undergo a medical examination at the chosen treatment facility. During this phase, the patient’s individual condition and expected results are analysed.
In some cases, it is also possible to predict the end results of the treatment.
Once the treatment plan is defined, the patient goes to the medical facility on the day of treatment. The procedure involves the use of instrumentation that emits infrared light to the chosen parts of the body, reaching even the deeper layers of the skin.
Before starting the treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the treated area.
General characteristics of NIR
One of the most important issues concerns the sensation of pain. In this case, throughout the treatment no pain symptoms are perceived.
It is possible to feel a sensation of heat, similar to that caused by a summer tanning, but this can be lightened by the application of gel.
Duration of NIR treatment
The duration depends on how big is the area that has to be treated. It generally varies around 30-60 minutes.
After how long can the results be evaluated?
The initial results are immediately visible after the procedure. However, in some cases, it may be necessary to wait for 24-48 hours for the treated skin to rebalance after the treatment
How many NIR sessions are needed
In general, several sessions may be necessary to benefit from long-term results.
In most cases, sessions range from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 8. Each session should be distanced from the next by at least 3-4 weeks.
NIR treatment is completely noninvasive, especially when compared to classic aesthetic medicine methods. The only side effects that may occur, concern the appearance of redness in the treated areas.
Usually, this effect disappears a few hours after treatment.
There is no limitation in daily activities post-NIR.
