Infrared Skin Tightening

How Does Skin Tightening Work Using Infrared Light?

Kovak Laser Skin Tightening The laser (Palomar LUX IR 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.

Infrared Skin Tightening ChicagoAre These Treatments Safe? Are they Painful?

The technology Dr. Kovak uses 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.

Our technology also uses a 3-stage cooling. It cools the skin, before, during, and after each light pulse, so you feel little discomfort during treatment.

What Should I Expect After Treatment?

The patient 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.
