How does Soprano NIR technology work
Without damaging the skin’s surface, Soprano NIR safely and effectively heats the deeper layer – dermis – of the skin, inducing the formation of collagen, essential for a firm, young look.
Where can Soprano skin tightening be used?
Soprano treatments can be performed to treat loose, wrinkled or crepe-like skin that is found most commonly on the aging face and neck.
What to Expect
At Exeter Medical all patients are assessed by a member of our laser team to determine their course of optimum treatment. The outcome of treatment depends on a number of factors that include: age, the target area’s location, the degree of skin laxity and smoking history. Patients generally note improvement soon after treatment, while others witness results gradually. Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated. Precise pulses of light are then delivered to the target area.
Is it safe?
The Soprano treatment assures safe, effective treatment. Light pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing little or no skin damage or discomfort. This optimal use of energy both increases safety and eliminates the need for cooling methods. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate Soprano treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anaesthesia, though topical anaesthetic and post-treatment cold compresses are an option for sensitive areas.
The Sporano NIR Advantage
The Soprano NIR Advantage Conventional skin tightening methods include topical skin lotions and creams, dermabrasion, chemical peels and resurfacing lasers. As superficial emulsions cannot fully restore collagen in the skin’s inner layer, they may have limited value if not used in combination with other treatments.
Ablative resurfacing, while more effective, may cause swelling and redness. Also, the prolonged recovery time that often accompanies more dramatic resurfacing may not suit those patients who seek effective skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime and risk.
In contrast, Soprano NIR penetrates and heals the skin’s deeper layer without harming its surface. The light tightens, as well as tones and textures your skin. The result: improved overall skin appearance without injury
