Do you have sagging cheeks, jowls, and neck or face wrinkles? SkinTyte offers a non-surgical treatment option to lift, tighten, and firm sagging skin for a naturally rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Curious to know how it works and whether you can benefit? We have all the answers!
What Causes Loose Skin?
Skin laxity (loose skin) is a natural effect of aging caused by a breakdown of collagen and elastin. These are two essential proteins in the skin that support the tissues for plump, firm skin. Natural skin aging and environmental factors like sun exposure gradually break down collagen fibers and slow the growth of new tissues. The result is lasting skin damage like signs of aging and surface imperfections such as hyperpigmentation, rough skin texture, and more.
What is SkinTyte II?
SkinTyte II is an innovative laser skin tightening treatment that is completely non-invasive. The SkinTyte device delivers pulses of infrared light into the skin, heating the deep tissues and triggering the body’s natural healing response. This wound-healing process both contracts collagen fibers to tighten the skin and stimulates new collagen growth to plump drooping skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Who is a Candidate for SkinTyte II?
Patients with jowls (sagging skin on the neck and jawline), facial skin sagging, and moderate wrinkles can benefit from SkinTyte II. Patients with recently sun-tanned skin and those who are pregnant may have to wait to receive treatment. SkinTyte can also be used on the arms, breasts, abdomen, and knees so you have concerns about sagging skin in any of these areas, let us know and we can help you create a customized facial and body contouring treatment.
Is SkinTyte Treatment Painful?
SkinTyte treatment is not painful. The laser technology is equipped with cooling technology applied simultaneously with the pulsed infrared laser. The outer layer of your skin will be kept cool and comfortable during the entire treatment.
What Can You Expect with SkinTyte Results?
There is no downtime required after SkinTyte treatment, making this a great treatment option for patients with busy lifestyles. Some immediate improvements can be seen but collagen regrowth takes and tissue regeneration takes time. You will see gradual results that start to become significant improvements after 2-3 months. The best results can be seen with 3-5 treatments scheduled one month apart.
