Near-Infrared Non-Ablative Lasers
Definition - What does Near-Infrared Non-Ablative Lasers mean?
Near-Infrared Non-Ablative Lasers are a technology that is designed to restore damaged collagen without harming the upper layer of skin, the epidermis. This treatment option is used to correct or improve skin quality, texture, or uneven tone. This method results in improved skin elasticity with little to no complications for patients.

These systems specifically target wavelengths between 1100 and 1800 nanometers. This range of the wavelength spectrum is also referred to as near-infrared. At this frequency, the epidermis is not affected, and the therapy can pass through to the dermis. At the dermis, the laser causes a heat-induced collagen shrinking which results in skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction will continue to be noticed up to six months after the treatment.
Patients have also seen a reduction in acne because the treatment causes the sebaceous glands to shrink.
