SkinTyte Treatment

This innovative laser technology uses pulsed light technology to selectively heat the dermal collagen deep in your skin while simultaneously cooling and protecting the epidermis (your outer layer of skin). The result is partial coagulation and contraction of collagen. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, and upper chest. It can also be used to firm up loose belly skin after pregnancy or weight loss.

The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation 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 you a comfortable and safe procedure.

During the procedure

This treatment takes about 30-60 minutes per area and is done in our office. The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic; however, the physician 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.

After the procedure

There is minimal facial swelling (if any at all) the first day, and you can wear make-up immediately. There is virtually no downtime.

To get the best results, most patients require an average of 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart. However, because each patient’s skin is different, the treatment number can vary. The majority of patients feel that their skin is tighter after just one treatment, but visible improvements in skin tone generally take place over 3 – 6 months.

Combine Treatments

This exciting laser technology is perfect for those who wish to tighten and firm up their skin. Coming back to our practice for 1-2 maintenance treatments per year can help maintain your results and prevent the natural acceleration of skin aging that normally occurs. You can combine treatments with our Broad Band Light photofacial treatments for age spots and sun damage.
