With aging, we experience a loss of firmness in the skin. These early signs of aging usually affect the neck and jawline first and make you appear older than your years. Even though you can’t stop aging or escape the effects of gravity, SkinTyte™ can be a great way to rejuvenate your skin without downtime.
SkinTyte is a non-invasive procedure designed to help you achieve firmer skin. It uses broadband light energy that deeply heats the collagen in your skin, promoting its natural production. The uniform and targeted heat from the procedure also initiates the natural healing process of your body which creates a renewed collagen foundation and increases the firmness of your skin.
It is the collagen in your skin that keeps it tight and helps you maintain your youthful appearance. SkinTyte is unique in its ability to precisely cool your skin both before and during the procedure. This ensures that there is no damage to your skin due to overheating. Collagen stimulation requires no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.
SkinTyte can be performed on any area of your body that requires skin tightening. It is safe for all skin tones and types. It offers effective and predictable results to any area of the body where you desire firmness. Most of our patients consult Dr. Lee for tightening their face, abdomen, neck, and arms.
If you experience signs of aging and sun damage like pigmentation, irregular texture, age spots, fine lines, redness, or mild acne scars, you can achieve a rejuvenated appearance with SkinTyte. If you have recently sun tanned or will be exposed to excessive sun right after treatment, then you should avoid it. You’ll discuss your medical history and any medications with Dr. Lee so that he can determine whether SkinTyte is the right procedure for you.
Before your SkinTyte treatment, you will be asked to wear protective goggles. Even though your treatment will be comfortable, if you are more sensitive to pain, Dr. Lee can apply a soothing gel to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort.
Gentle, infrared light energy pulses are used during the treatment. Most patients do not report any pain during their SkinTyte procedure. Once your treatment is over, you can continue with your normal routine. There may be slight swelling for the first 24 hours after the treatment, but you can wear makeup right afterwards.
Depending on the treatment area, your procedure may only take about 30 minutes. In order to achieve the desired results, you will require at least 3 to 5 treatment sessions spaced at an interval of one month. It might take up to 4 months for you to see the full results from your SkinTyte treatment. However, most patients experience firmer skin after the first session itself. It is the best non-surgical option for those who are seeking moderate and noticeable changes in their skin’s firmness without having to deal with the complications of surgery. You will enjoy skin that is tighter, smoother, and brighter with just a few easy treatment sessions.
