SkinTyte™ for Skin Firming
Fast and Effective Laser Therapy to Firm Aging Skin and Activate New Collagen Growth.
In aging skin, for both men and women, laxity develops in the jowls and neck, and the loss of a defined jaw line adds significant years to the appearance of your face. It is the first thing others notice about you, so any effects of aging in the facial area are going to be most noticeable.
At the same time gravity is pulling your facial skin south, your abdominal skin has also stretched and retracted over the years (especially with pregnancies and weight loss/gain), leaving you with a saggy, loose tummy.
How Does SkinTyte™ Work?
SkinTyte™ utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin, while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte™ light energy delivers a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses, which are repeated over the desired area to ensure best results. Using infrared energy, the dermal collagen is deeply heated, promoting partial denaturation and contraction of the collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, creating a renewed collagen foundation, leading to the skin’s firmness and increased natural elasticity.
Treatment time varies based upon the areas treated and desired results but, generally, runs about thirty minutes. Most patients receive two to five treatments at two to four week intervals to achieve maximum skin firming results.* As with any topical laser treatment, it is important that patients avoid sun exposure two to four weeks prior to your scheduled session.
Topical anesthetic is, typically, not used, unless treating a very sensitive area, and protective eyewear is worn throughout the procedure.

SkinTyte™ Following Liposuction
Many of our SkinTyte™ patients are former body or neck liposuction patients who love their new contours, but dislike the residual saggy, “hanging” skin.
Although results vary from patient to patient, noticeable firmness is, generally, present within the first month post-treatment. Longer-lasting firmness in skin texture develops gradually, taking about four months to become fully visible. The collagen foundation of your skin continues to rebuild and strengthen for months afterward.*
