Skin Tightening through coagulation: The Palomar LuxIR™ Fractional Handpiece sends infrared light pulses deep into the dermis, where it creates a carefully controlled area of elevated temperature. These areas of elevated temperature cause soft tissue coagulation, which can lead to collagen remodeling in the deep dermis. Remodeled collagen can tighten sagging skin. Deep heating with infrared light can also stimulate increased collagen production, to create long-term results*. The LuxIR’s infrared light is delivered as an array of small, regularly spaced beams, with a depth of treatment ranging from 1.5 to 3 mm into the deep dermis. The treatment can be done without any medication, and a series of treatments are necessary for maximum improvement.
