SkinTyte ™ is a non-invasive, no downtime, and aesthetic procedure used to tighten mild to moderate laxity of the skin. The treatment uses light to heat the deep layer in the skin, activating the body’s repair response to make and remodel collagen. As our skin ages, we lose collagen and elastin which are 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, leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing the patient a comfortable and safe procedure. SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime.
Who is a candidate for SkinTyte?
The procedure is recommended for those who desire mild to moderate, noticeable skin tightening improvement without surgery.
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, your clinician 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. 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.
What areas can be treated?
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.
How many treatments will I need before I begin to see results?
Typically, 3-5 treatment sessions are often recommended to achieve maximum collagen rebuilding and skin firming. However, your practitioner can 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.
How much downtime will there be after treatment?
The SkinTyte treatment is non-invasive so there is no downtime. Patients are able to immediately resume their normal activities and 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.
What aftercare do I need?
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 the provider.
Am I able to have other laser or light treatments with SkinTyte?
Yes, there are many other beneficial procedures that may be recommended to you to have in conjunction with SkinTyte such as Forever Young BBL™.
