Have you ever considered treatments for loose skin? There are many non-surgical options out there for mild skin laxity. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff stand behind the technology of Near Infrared Skin Tightening.

What is Near Infrared Skin Tightening?

Near Infrared is a wavelength that emits light in the 780-1000nm where the optical window is necessary for direct sub-dermal heating of the connective tissue. The light helps to heat up the water content of your skin which stimulates collagen to contract and tighten. Your body’s natural healing process will start to produce new collagen to firm and tighten the appearance of your skin.
Who is Near Infrared Skin Tightening for?
Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we believe the best candidate for skin tightening are typically younger patients who are not candidates for surgery. Or, they may be older and experience mild to moderate skin laxity and do not want to undergo surgery. Another reason one might choose Near Infrared Skin Tightening over surgery is cost.
How long does it take?
The treatment can take 20-45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
How many treatments does it take?
Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa for best results a series of 6 treatments done every 2-3 weeks is recommended for smoother, tighter skin.
Is there downtime?
There is no downtime after Near Infrared Skin Tightening. You will experience some warmth and redness that will fade within a few hours. Generally you may resume all regular activities after your treatment.
When will I see results?
You may see some immediate results with gradual improvement over a period of 4-8 weeks as new collagen is formed. Results can be maintained with one or two treatments a year.
If you are considering Near Infrared Skin Tightening or are curious if it is right for you, come see us at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and let Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff recommend the treatment that is best for you and your needs.

The year is flying by. One year older, Yikes! The worst part is that not only do we add another number to our age but our appearance begins to change as well. Wrinkles start to show more and more. As if wrinkles weren’t bad enough our skin begins to droop as well. Sagging neck is a common one.
So what exactly causes a sagging neck?  At the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Medspa we know that loose skin is a part of aging but can also be genetics along with weight.  Dr Bishara says, “Excessive sun exposure can have a lot to do with it as well. ”  Yes, those uv rays can be very harmful!
 

What you can do to fix it!

At The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we offer surgical and non-surgical treatments to help with aging skin. Facelifts have become quite popular with Dr. Mark Bishara as no one likes to look older nor have loose skin. A facelift counteracts the effects of aging, gravity, sun exposure and stress by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, more youthful look and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, creases and fat deposits. Many patients look 10 to 15 years younger after a facelift.
If surgery is not what your looking then a NIR Skin Tightening treatment can help. Near infrared technology is used to penetrate deep heat to the deepest layers of tissue. This stimulates collagen production and tightens lax skin. Nearly any patient seeking fuller, tighter skin can benefit from laser skin tightening as a safe, noninvasive and effective procedure. The laser skin tightening procedure can be fully customized to help each patient receive the best possible results, depending on the skin condition, size and location of the targeted area and the strength of the laser exposure.
