The pursuit of a youthful appearance is a timeless endeavor. As we age, the desire to maintain smooth, radiant skin becomes more pronounced. While there are many skin treatments available, two in particular have risen in popularity: at-home lasers and dermal fillers. In this guide, we'll explore the intricacies of both, helping you make an informed decision about your skincare goals.
What Are Injectables and How Do They Work?
Injectables, commonly known as dermal fillers, are un-natural substances introduced beneath the skin with a needle to restore volume and smooth out wrinkles. These fillers can be made of various materials, including hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite. Their primary function is to fill in areas of volume loss, giving the skin a temporary plumper, more youthful appearance. Filler materials can move from their original location under the skin, and will dissipate over time. Neurotoxin injections specifically target the muscles underneath the skin and paralyze them to prevent muscle-driven wrinkles from forming. However, muscle contractions can cause long-term creases in the skin even when the muscles are relaxed.
The NIRA Lasers: At Home Alternatives to Injectables
The NIRA lasers offer a unique approach to skin rejuvenation. Unlike injectables, which painfully introduce substances into the skin for temporary results, the NIRA lasers harness the power of one-of-a-kind, patented non-fractional, non-ablative laser technology. NIRA’s technology was developed by laser experts and has been clinically proven and backed by Dermatologists. By sending laser light into the dermis, the devices trigger cells to rebuild natural collagen. This process targets signs of aging at the source, renewing the skin from the inside out for long-lasting wrinkle reduction. Non-fractional laser technology has also been shown to improve skin tone and texture, lift and tighten the skin, and promote overall skin health and rejuvenation. NIRA’s painless skin renewal technology ensures a comfortable experience with no downtime, making it a preferred choice for many seeking a natural, convenient, and effective anti-aging solution.
The NIRA Lasers vs. Filler
While the NIRA lasers utilize advanced light technology to stimulate natural collagen production beneath the skin’s surface, offering a compelling alternative to under-eye filler, injections introduce external substances directly into the skin. NIRA provides skin rejuvenation through a non-invasive method, whereas injections give quicker results that may not last as long. Let’s explore the distinct advantages, costs, duration of results, and potential side effects of each approach.
The NIRA lasers are gaining traction as one of the leading botox alternatives, primarily due to their non-invasive nature, making them a preferred choice for those wary of the pain and downtime associated with injections. The NIRA Precision Laser is designed with a small treatment tip for hard to treat areas around the eyes and mouth, whereas the NIRA Pro is designed for use on the full face, neck, chest, and hands. With each treatment taking less than 5 minutes a day, it is now simple & easy to take your skincare into your own hands at home to achieve clinical-grade results in as little as 10-12 weeks. The flexibility and convenience of using the device at home, on one’s own schedule, make it a practical solution for today’s busy lifestyles.
The allure of dermal fillers lies in their ability to provide immediate results. Upon injection, wrinkles and fine lines can be visibly reduced, giving the skin a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. This instant transformation is what makes fillers a popular choice for events or special occasions.
Evaluating the Investment
The NIRA Precision Laser retails for $449, whereas the NIRA Pro Laser retails for $599. However, In-office injection pricing can range from $960-6,800 per treatment, with 2-3 treatments recommended per year to maintain results. While the initial investment in a NIRA laser might seem significant, it’s essential to view it as a long-term skincare solution. Over time, the cost savings become evident, especially when compared to the recurring expenses of in-office treatments. The cost of dermal fillers is variable, depending on the type and volume of filler used. While a single session might seem affordable, it’s crucial to factor in the collective cost. With effects that wear off over time, repeated treatments become necessary, leading to increased expenses.
In most scenarios, the cost of a single filler session will surpass the price of a NIRA device, making the laser the more cost-effective alternative in the long run.
Longevity of Results
The NIRA lasers stand out for their natural looking, long-lasting anti-aging results. By consistently stimulating collagen production and promoting cellular rejuvenation, the skin undergoes a dramatic improvement over time. Visible results begin to show after 30 days of treatment, with full results being visible at 60-90 days of treatment. As users continue their sessions, they can expect to see further improvements in skin texture, elasticity, and overall appearance.
In contrast, dermal fillers offer a more immediate solution to aging concerns. Their results, while quick, are temporary in nature. Depending on the specific filler and individual factors like metabolism and skin type, the effects can last anywhere from several months to about a year. As the filler begins to dissipate, individuals often find themselves in need of subsequent treatments to maintain their desired appearance.
Potential Risks and Side Effects
While the NIRA lasers are designed with user safety in mind, some individuals might experience brief skin redness after use. This minor reaction typically subsides swiftly. For optimal results and safety, adhering to the device’s usage instructions is crucial. If any side effects persist, it’s advisable to seek guidance from a skincare expert.
On the other hand, dermal fillers carry a more extensive list of potential side effects. Some of the side effects associated with skin injections include pain, swelling, redness, bruising, itching or rash, infection, and nerve damage. Allergic reactions, though uncommon, can occur. Overfilling is another concern, which might result in an undesired or exaggerated look. Issues such as lumpiness, unevenness, or more severe complications like misshapen eyes can arise if the procedure isn’t executed properly. When considering injectables, selecting a seasoned and trustworthy professional is important to ensure safety and desired outcomes.
Using the NIRA Lasers As A Maintenance Routine In Between Injections
It is common for individuals to use the NIRA Lasers as a maintenance routine in between injections to extend their results and time between each appointment. Using the NIRA Lasers for maintenance can lower the cost and frequency needed for injections. Due to the NIRA only penetrating into the dermis layer, injections under the skin are not impacted by the heat. However, we do recommend waiting 2 weeks for your injection site to heal before using the NIRA Lasers, and notifying your injector that you are using both methods together. The NIRA Lasers renew the skin by rebuilding collagen, whereas injections fill in volume and relax the muscles to prevent wrinkles. We recommend making NIRA your main method for wrinkle reduction, and using injections sparingly as needed to maintain natural beauty as you age.
