The NIR handpiece is then passed over the treatment area in a sweeping motion. During the treatment the skin temperature of the treated area will be closely monitored with a special infrared thermometer to ensure that your skin is receiving a sufficient level of heat necessary to warm up the water content of your skin and stimulate collagen production.
During the skin tightening treatment, you will feel a warm sensation as the infrared energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. While the infrared energy is heating the dermis, continuous contact cooling is keeping the skin’s outer layer cool and comfortable. The treatment is generally considered by most to be ‘near’ painless, with only a warm sensation or feeling of heat felt during the treatment.
