What is SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ uses pulsed infrared lights to improve the appearance of aged skin, tightening and rejuvenating the complexion. This treatment is very versatile, able to treat an array of skin conditions, including red or flushed skin, acne scarring, Rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Popular areas of treatment include the face, neck, arms, and abdomen.
Most people are candidates for this procedure. However, patients with blisters or infection in the area of treatment should delay their treatment session. Pregnant woman should not undergo this procedure.
How are SkinTyte™ Treatments Done?
About an hour prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied to eliminate treatment discomfort. Protective eyewear will also be worn throughout the procedure. Pulsed light energy will be used to deeply heat the dermal collagen. This initiates the production of collagen for increased skin firmness. It can also strengthen the skin and increase elasticity.
Treatment generally takes about 30 minutes. Commonly, a series of three to five treatments are needed to see optimal results. A consultation can help to determine the total number of treatments needed to achieve desired results.
Following treatment, patients may experience mild swelling for the first day. Icing the area can help to reduce this side-effect. Makeup can be worn soon after the swelling subsides. Total recovery time will depend on the invasiveness of the procedure. Most patients can see skin-tightening results after one treatment, though improvements will continue for up to six months.
