What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte™ provides a more youthful appearance quickly, and comfortably with no downtime. It utilizes pulsed light technology to heat your skin while cooling and protecting the treated area.
How does SkinTyte work?
SkinTyte uses infrared energy to heat and contract collagen. The heat also initiates your body’s natural healing process, which creates new collagen, which leads to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling keeps your skin comfortable and protected during and after the treatment.
What is the treatment like?
SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however you may try one on more sensitive areas. While the face and neck can typically be treated in 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated.
Who performs the treatment?
Injection and laser specialists Jeanne Eyde, D.O., or Pam Jendritz, R.N. are qualified SkinTyte providers. To learn more about them, click here.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience mild redness in the treated area immediately afterward that will return to normal in a few minutes. Because SkinTyte is noninvasive there is no downtime and you can resume regular activities after your appointment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
What results should I expect?
Results may vary. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who want moderate, noticeable skin improvement without undergoing surgery. Full results can take up to 4 months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
What areas can be treated?
SkinTyte is safe for all skin tones and can be performed on any area of the body where improvement in firmness is desired. Popular areas are the face, and neck. Consult with your laser specialist to determine which treatment options are best for you.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies and your laser specialist will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
What aftercare do I need?
No special skin regimen is required after your treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from sun damage with a good sunscreen. We also carry body products from SkinCeuticals that can help enhance your results.
