SkinTyte offers skin tightening by reducing skin laxity. It can also reduce redness and improve your complexion overall. This device offers these benefits without surgery! It works by remodeling the collagen and skin from below the surface.
Frequently Asked Questions
SkinTyte is a light-based anti-aging device that rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. Basically, it uses heat to create tighter, firmer skin. And it’s safe for all skin types. It can treat a wide range of skin problems, including:
- Loose skin
- Wrinkles, folds and creases
- Rough texture
SkinTyte can be used on many areas of your body, such as: Face, Neck, Area around the eyes, Hands, Belly/abdomen, Chest, Jaw line/jowls and Chin
As your skin ages, you may wish to restore those qualities indicative of youth. Today’s non-surgical interventions turn back the hands of time effectively, without downtime. In fact, you are able to get back to your normal activities immediately after your SkinTyte appointment.
SkinTyte works by heating soft tissue. The device sends rapid pulses of infrared light beneath your skin. It is the infrared light that heats up collagen and soft tissue. To increase patient comfort, SkinTyte includes cooling technology for the surface of your skin.
This process of “photocoagulation” contracts and partially coagulates collagen, which basically means the collagen will be more firm, providing a supportive scaffold beneath your skin. The pulses of light also prompt a natural healing response, which produces new collagen. The result is firmer, tighter skin.
Depending on the number and size of the treatment area(s), the pulsed light therapy typically takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. You’ll wear eye protectors that look similar to goggles, to protect your eyes from the infrared light if treating the face. You certified aesthetician will apply gel over the surface of the treatment area and then the handheld SkinTyte device is passed smoothly over the skin.
Most people tolerate the treatment quite well without any topical anesthetic. You’ll be fully awake because anesthesia is completely unnecessary. It’s normal to feel warmth because of the way the device works, but the built-in cooling technology helps you stay comfortable.
You may notice subtle results as soon as a few hours later, but the best results are formed over the following weeks as the skin and soft tissue responds to the treatment. Although it’s possible you can benefit from a single session, most patients need a series of 6 or more treatments for optimal results.
After several months or so, you could notice some of the wrinkles and skin laxity returning. Another SkinTyte session will be needed to restore the tightening effect.
