Safe and optimized for all skin types, SkinTyte can predictably, effectively, and comfortably treat any area of the body where improvement is desired, giving patients a firmer, more youthful appearance. SkinTyte utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling. This process causes soft tissue coagulation and deep tissue heating that initiates the body’s natural healing process, leading to increased tissue firming.
SkinTyte utilizes advanced infrared light technology, and patient tailored filters to deeply heat dermal collagen while continuously protecting the treated epidermis with sapphire contact cooling for optical clinical endpoints, safety and comfort. With no need for a topical anesthetic, the energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses to promote contraction and partial coagulation of the collagen, initiating the body’s natural healing process, leading to increased tissue firming.
A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be done within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the size of the area treated. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive there is typically no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following the treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
SkinTyte procedure results may vary from patient to patient. SkinTyte is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months.
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your clinician can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
No special skincare regimen is required following the treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen. Your clinician will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.
