Laser Skin Tightening

What is SkinTyte?

The SkinTyte treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance. SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen and arms.

Skin Tyte offers a non-invasive approach to firmer skin. The Skin Tyte procedure utilizes a broadband of light energy to deeply heat the dermal collagen. This process promotes the stimulation of collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness.

Collagen is a protein that provides a matrix of support for the skin. This causes the skin to tighten and makes for a more youthful appearance. This can be used on all skin colors. A unique aspect of this laser is the ability to precisely cool the skin before and during the laser treatment.

This prevents any damage due to over-heating the surface of the skin. As a result, the collagen is stimulated without any down time. Patients may return to normal activity immediately.

The Skin Tyte treatments can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in skin firmness is desired. A series of 6 treatments will be needed and spaced a month apart to achieve the best results.

How it works

The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. 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 treatment

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 best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated.

The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and the physician can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. The physician may also combine SkinTyte with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

After treatment

You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is noninvasive, there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
No special skin care regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen. The physician can also recommend an at home skin care regimen if desired.
SkinTyte procedure results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.

A Skin Firming Treatment

SkinTyte utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. This is a safe procedure for all skin types.
Aging, sun damage from ultraviolet (UV) light, smoking, stress, excessive alcohol intake and an unhealthy diet and lifestyle all destroy collagen and elastin in the dermis and cause the skin to loosen and sag, Although it is located beneath the epidermis, changes to the dermis cause the outer skin to wrinkle and lose elasticity. As we grow older, the amount of fat found in our lower layer of skin decreases, our glands produce oil, and collagen and elastin fibers lose their elasticity. The natural process of cell reproduction in the dermal layer also decreases as we grow older, resulting in a slower rejuvenation of our skin cells.
Skin Tyte can be performed in an area with loose and sagging skin. Popular areas to treat are: Face, Neck, Abdomen, Arms and Thighs.
The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
