When our skin begins to age and wrinkle, we rush to seek the best anti-aging creams and serums out there to put a halt on our aging process. But as we know the daily application and messy products can be a hassle and it would be much easier if there was a way to rewind and regain our youthful appearance.  

There are many anti-aging treatments out there, from anti-wrinkle to micro-needling techniques to laser treatments and many more. But how do you decide which is best for you? 

In this article were going to be discussing the benefits of NIR infrared laser treatment and why this very treatment just might be the perfect anti-aging solution for you. 

How does the Harmony XL Pro NIR work?

Red light therapy is a natural skin treatment that uses no chemicals, UV rays or excess heat. It delivers light therapy safely and effectively and produces some of the best long-lasting results for wrinkles, skin rejuvenation and tightening of skin laxity. 

The Harmony XL pro NIR technology uses a high-powered light in the near infrared spectrum which glides past the surface of the skin on a lubricated oil bed and passes through the layers gradually heating up the sub-dermal tissue. This targeted light energy causes the structural protein fibres (collagen and elastin) to contract and tighten. This heats up the tissue which kick starts a cellular repair and boost collagen production. 

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our bodies, it is critical for joint, bone and skin health as it holds us all together. The more we produce the better for our bodies and general appearance. There are many collagen supplements and creams but the best way to achieve natural results is to encourage production in your body at the cellular level.  

The NIR technology produces skin tightening and firming results for the forehead, chin, neck and crow’s feet wrinkles. The extensive production of collagen under the surface plumps fine lines and wrinkles naturally. The laser boosts the body own natural healing process to revitalise sagging skin.

Does the treatment hurt?

This treatment is virtually a pain free treatment with minimal discomfort. You may feel a warming sensation during the treatment, but many clients find it very relaxing. 

Will I experience any side effects?

At most you may experience a lingering warmth, swelling, tightness or redness in the treated area which will fade within minutes or a few hours of the treatment. There is little to no downtime and you continue your daily routine as normal. 

How many treatments will I need and how long will the results last?

The procedure takes around 30-40 minutes, but this can vary depending on the size of the area you are having treated. You may notice improvement in the texture of your skin in just 24 hours with a visible lift, rejuvenated skin and increased firmness as your skin continues to smooth and plump. However to achieve the best, long lasting results a treatment course of at least 4 sessions is recommended. 

In the 2-3 months following your treatment you can expect to see gradual improvements in the texture and firmness of your skin. The benefits of this treatment can last for up to a year. Typically, clients with larger treated areas or those seeking dramatic skin tightening results will require 3-6 sessions, around 6-8 weeks apart, to transform and tighten the skin and reclaim their youthful glow.
