What Is SkinTyte?

SkinTyte is a noninvasive, light-based skin tightening treatment that creates firmer, smoother skin on the face and body. It uses pulses of light to heat tissues and stimulate collagen production, encouraging your body to heal and rejuvenate itself.

The treatment is safe for all skin types and is effective for treating moderate sagging or laxity in areas such as the:

  • Face
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Arms

Because the treatment provides a collagen boost in the treated area, it may also improve skin texture and reduce signs of aging or sun damage. If you are looking to treat signs of aging on your skin’s surface, you may choose to combine SkinTyte with other laser skin treatments designed to address pigmentation, texture, and fine lines. If you would like to tighten significantly loose skin, you may be a better candidate for a plastic surgery procedure such as a tummy tuck.

How Does SkinTyte Work?

SkynTyte uses gentle pulses of light to heat the deeper layers of your skin. This heat stimulates your body’s natural healing process, which includes increased collagen and elastin production. As we age, we lose the collagen and elastin that keep our skin elastic and youthful. SkinTyte combats this to help you look naturally younger without the downtime or invasiveness of surgery.

What To Expect at Your SkinTyte Appointment

SkinTyte is so gentle that most people find it easy to tolerate without even a topical anesthetic, though it is available if you find your skin is sensitive. The treatment consists of many rapid, gentle pulses of light delivered to your skin through a specially designed handpiece. As the device heats the deep layers of your skin, it cools and monitors your skin’s surface to keep you comfortable and prevent any injury. Treatments typically take about 30 to 45 minutes per treatment area.

How Long Is SkinTyte Recovery?

There is little to no recovery time after a SkinTyte treatment. While you may have some mild redness or pinkness in your treated area for a couple of hours after your treatment, you can return to your usual routine right away. As is the case with any laser or light treatment, you’ll need to wear plenty of SPF and protect your skin from direct UV exposure after your appointment.

When Will I See Results After SkinTyte?

Your results will develop for up to 4 months as collagen production takes place. Most people opt for a series of 3 to 6 sessions, each spaced about 3 weeks apart, to see the best results. Your provider will work with you to determine the most effective treatment plan to achieve your goals. Many people choose to touch up their results with maintenance treatments every 1 or 2 years.
