SkinTyte is a light-based anti-aging treatment that works to remodel the collagen from below the surface of your skin to cause it to appear firmer. While it reduces skin laxity, it can also reduce redness and improve your overall complexion. This device offers these benefits without surgery.
Frequently Asked Questions
SkinTyte is a light-based device that rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. Safe for all skin types, it uses heat to create tighter, firmer skin. Here’s what it can treat::
- Loose skin
- Wrinkles, folds and creases
- Rough texture
You can receive a SkinTyte treatment for any of the following areas: face, neck, area around the eyes, hands, belly/abdomen, chest, jawline/jowls and chin
As you age, you may wish to restore your youth. Today’s non-surgical interventions turn back the hands of time effectively, without downtime. In fact, you can resume your normal activities immediately after your SkinTyte treatment.
SkinTyte uses light therapy to heat soft tissue. A handheld device is operated by our certified aestheticians to send rapid pulses of infrared light beneath your skin. The infrared light heats up collagen and soft tissue. For your comfort, SkinTyte also includes a cooling technology at the surface of your skin.
This process is called “photocoagulation”. It’s the process by which collagen is contracted and partially coagulated, making it more firm, and creating a supportive scaffold beneath your skin. The pulses of light prompt a natural healing response, which produces new collagen, resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
The pulsed light therapy typically takes 30 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the treatment area(s). If treating the face, you’ll be protected by eyewear that looks similar to goggles, to protect your eyes from the infrared light. Your certified aesthetician will apply gel over the surface of the treatment area and then pass the handheld SkinTyte device smoothly over the skin.
The SkinTyte treatment is generally very well tolerated. Usually topical anesthetic is not used. You’ll be fully awake during the procedure. It’s normal to feel a warm sensation because of the way the device works, but the built-in cooling technology helps you stay comfortable.
Some of our male patients notice subtle results as soon as a few hours after treatment. The best results, however, are formed over the following weeks as the skin and soft tissue responds to the treatment. While it’s possible you can benefit from a single session, most patients require a series of 6 or more treatments for optimal results.
After several months, is it possible to notice the return of skin laxity and some wrinkling? It is. We cannot defy gravity. Future SkinTyte touch-up sessions will be needed, and are highly recommended, every few months to restore the tightening effect.
