SkinTyte Phototherapy

All About SkinTyte

SkinTyte is the fastest, most reliable and economical way to treat any area of the body to improve skin firmness and restore youthful skin appearance without any downtime. The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue. 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 a comfortable and safe procedure. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. Actual time of treatment will depend on the area treated.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin types 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. It is recommended for those who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvements without having to undergo surgery.

How Many Treatments?

The number of treatments will vary from patient to patient and we will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. We may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment. Typical patients need 4 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart, but most patients will see results of tightening right after the first treatment, but results can take up to 3 treatments to see.

What to Expect During Treatment

SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for topical anesthetic; however, it may be used 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 procedure is gentle, noninvasive and safe. The SkinTyte procedure has minimal
discomfort associated with it.

What to Expect After Treatment

Immediately after treatment, you may experience some mild redness in the treated area which should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is noninvasive, there is no downtime. You can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You may also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.

What Results to Expect

Results 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.

After the Procedure

It is important to follow your our instructions. You will be sensitive to ultra-violet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
