SkinTyte™ uses pulsed light technology (selective thermolysis) to heat deeply into the skin while providing a comfortable treatment. This quick and effective treatment provides results of a more youthful appearance without downtime.
The deep heating of the skin provided by the light energy causes the collagen (building block of the skin) to contract and change in shape. The heat also causes the body’s natural healing process to create renewed collagen appearing as increased firmness to the top layer of the skin. The SkinTyte™ treatment maintains a cool temperature to the exterior of the skin providing a safe procedure.
The SkinTyte™ light energy is delivered in rapid pulses, one after another until the area to be treated is covered. Then another series of pulses will follow to ensure best results are accomplished. This treatment can take a half hour to a full hour, depending on the size of area.
After the SkinTyte™ treatment you may experience a mild redness, like you have had a bit of sun. This redness will dissipate within a few minutes. There is no downtime so you may resume normal activities soon after treatment. Makeup and sunscreen can be worn right after treatment. Regular use of a good sunscreen will prolong the effects of your treatment.
Although SkinTyte™ is not a face-lift, you can expect an improvement. Results may vary from client to client. Fine lines and wrinkles and drooping skin will improve; and over a period of three to four months, results may be more noticeable as the collagen is rebuilt and strengthened.
At this clinic we treat the face, neck, and décolleté to tighten with the SkinTyte™ treatment. Consult with the physician if this treatment is the right treatment for you.
A series of 3-5 SkinTyte™ treatments, spaced a month apart is what most clients find they need. A personalized consultation with the physician can be arranged; you may wish to add other aesthetic treatments to enhance to your desired level of improvement.
