Lasers have been used in the dermatology space since 1960 and are proven to have numerous skin benefits, one of the biggest being that they reduce wrinkles. Most facial lasers either at-home or in-office are called "fractional lasers". Fractional lasers work by destroying columns of tissue causing skin cells to die, which signals your body to produce more collagen to repair the damaged skin. This process causes redness to the skin, inflammation, pain, and downtime. Most dermatologists use fractional lasers at wavelengths up to 1550 nm.
Our technology is different. It's the first and only painless, non-fractional at-home laser treatment that is FDA-Cleared and clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. With five comfort levels to adjust to skin sensitivity, it's now possible to achieve the same great results as you would in-office, but at a fraction of the price, and without any pain or irritation.
NIRA uses the same semiconductor laser diodes tuned at 1450 nm which allows peak absorption in the dermis layers. NIRA uses a lower power per unit area and a non-fractional approach to avoid pain and erythema (redness) and spreads the energy over daily treatments over the course of a month, whereas the dermatologist typically treats with all the energy in one visit per month. Over time, the NIRA device puts in more energy than most professional treatments do in a single visit and NIRA generates equal or more skin rejuvenation.
