Radio-frequency & ultrasound

Soprano NIR Skin Tightening is a light-based treatment of Near Infrared (NIR) technology which helps to stimulate the formation of new collagen deep below the surface of the skin. Clients typically use this treatment to tighten loose or sagging skin. The NIR Skin Tightening treatment is ideal for the rejuvenation of the face, neck and delicate areas.

The Soprano Titanium NIR treatment heats the inner layer of the skin (dermis), which helps to stimulate the production of new collagen, giving you a more even and lighter complexion.

What Causes Skin Laxity?

  • Environmental pollutants

  • Pregnancy

  • Gravitation

What are the benefits of NIR Skin Tightening?

  • Reduces the loss of collagen

  • Improves loose and sagging skin and reduces facial jowls 

  • Smooths out fine lines

  • Non-invasive - no surgery or injections

  • Pain free - a warming sensation felt but it is not painful

  • Safe on all skin types

  • No treatment downtime

My Soprano machine has a face applicator that delivers targeted skin tightening and firming results for the chin, forehead, neck and crow's feet. Extensive collagen production under the surface plumps fine lines and wrinkles naturally. 

Soprano's laser technology uses the body's own natural healing processes to rejuvenate sagging skin. This is great news for those who prefer a holistic approach to beauty therapy.
