New Treament Option for Skin Tightening

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Jowls… it’s not a pretty word.  The word may even conjur up images of Droppy the cartoon dog, and so many people are bothered by them.  So what can you do? 

 Well, there’s surgery, but thats so invasive and many people aren’t ready or willing to go under the knife.   Luckily, there are non-invasive ways to address lax skin, namely NIR technology, which is virtually pain free.  NIR, also known as near infrared, is a safe technology that heats the tissue under the surface of the skin to stimulate new collagen formation resulting in skin tightening

While NIR will not give you the dramatic results of surgery, it is very effective in reducing the apperance of lax skin allowing patients to postpone, or in some cases, forego the operating room.
