SkinTyte is a ground-breaking technology that is used to heat the dermal collagen deep in the skin with safe, infrared light pulses resulting in partial coagulation and contraction of the collagen, tightening the skin and resulting in a more youthful appearance. The SkinTyte skin-tightening procedure simultaneously cools the epidermis, therefore reducing any pain typically associated with skin-tightening treatments. It delivers consistent and predictable improvements in the skin and generally requires no downtime after treatment.
SkinTyte can be used on any part of the body that has laxity due to aging or sun related damage, or where an improvement in skin firmness is desired.
Most patients feel an improvement in the tightness of their skin after just one treatment, but visible changes are gradual and generally take three to six months for significant changes to show. Depending on the condition being treated, most patients require an initial series of 3-5 treatments over a few months, followed by a follow-up treatment after two to three years in order to maintain the results.
The benefit of SkinTyte is that most side effects are mild and patients require little to no downtime following treatment. Side effects generally include redness, slight swelling, and/or bruising immediately following treatment, lasting less than 24 hours. Depending on the area treated, there may be some swelling for a few days following treatment, but this is generally only seen on patients with severely sun-damaged skin.
