What is SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte ™ is a non-invasive aesthetic procedure used to tighten mild-to-moderate laxity of the skin with no downtime. As our skin ages, we lose collagen and elastin, the key components to maintaining youthful, plump looking skin. The SkinTyte procedure is based on the principle of selective “photothermolysis”, which utilizes infrared thermal energy to deeply heat collagen in the skin. This activates the body’s repair response to make and remodel collagen, increasing the skin’s firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse, providing a comfortable and safe procedure.
What are the Treatment Areas?
SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, and upper arms.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. Typically, a topical anesthetic is not used, however, our medical provider may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure the best results.
How Long Does One Treatment Take?
While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30-45 minutes, the actual time will depend on the volume of the area treated.
How Many Treatments are Recommended?
Typically, 3-5 treatment sessions are often recommended to achieve maximum collagen-rebuilding and skin-firming, however, our medical providers will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan. Patients may see immediate firming results right after treatment, but the full effect of improvement is achieved several months after treatment as collagen continues to rebuild.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment? How Long Will it Take to Recover?
The SkinTyte treatment is non-invasive, so there is no downtime. Clients can immediately resume their normal activities and can even apply makeup or sunscreen after each session with no visible signs of treatment. You may experience some mild redness in the treated area, but this will fade away within minutes post treatment.
Additionally, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen with at least SPF 30. A home skin care regimen may be recommended by our provider.
Am I Able to Have Other Laser or Light Treatments?
Yes, there are many other beneficial procedures that may be recommended to you in conjunction with SkinTyte, such as Forever Young BBL™.
