Skin Firming with SkinTyte
A non-ablative method for firmer skin
What is SkinTyte?
The SkinTyte treatment uses selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to heat your skin while cooling the treated surface. SkinTyte can be carried out quickly and comfortably with no recovery time. The result is a more youthful and healthy appearance.
How does SkinTyte work?
The procedure uses infrared energy to heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also starts the body’s natural healing process, which creates collagen foundation leading to increased firmness of the skin. Powerful cooling maintains the surrounding surface of your skin at a cool temperature while each pulse provides the patient with a comfortable and completely safe procedure.
What to expect during treatment?
The SkinTyte light-based energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid yet gentle pulses. Anesthetic is not needed; however, your physician may use it on sensitive areas. The face and neck can be treated within half an hour, but the actual time will depend on what area you want treated.
What to expect after treatment?
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area in the days after treatment but should return to normal within a few minutes. Since the procedure is noninvasive there is no recovery time, so you can get back to your day immediately after your treatment.
What results should I expect?
The results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who want noticeable skin improvement without surgery. The best results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is renewed and made stronger.
What areas can be treated?
SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen and arms. You should consult with your physician to see if there are any complications preventing you from using this treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your physician can personalize a treatment plan based on what you are looking for. Your physician may also combine SkinTyte with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
Do I need aftercare?
No special skin care regimens are needed after your treatment is done. However, you should always protect your skin from the sun with some sunscreen.
