Periorbital wrinkles and skin laxity are the first, most noticeable signs of facial aging. LHE Skin Tightening is pain-free and clinically proven to improve these effects. Skin appears firmer, smoother and younger as it loses its laxity and wrinkles fade, creating a natural lifting effect. Infrared light penetrates deep into the lower dermal levels and sets off a mild dermal trauma to initiate a wound/heal response. The collagen found in these levels responds with new growth, returning firmness and elasticity to the skin. This provides optimal deep dermal heating while preventing epidermal over heating. The broadband infrared light reaches a penetration depth of 1-3 mm, targeting the reticular dermis. Dermal temperature is raised to 50-60˚C, while temperature of the epidermis is maintained below 40-42˚C to minimize pain and avoid any potential side effects. Results are often visible as early as the 5th week and continue to improve with time.
