As we age, sagging develops in the jowls and neck area, as well as in our mid-sections, particularly after pregnancies or weight loss. SkinTyte™ is a fast and effective non-laser, intense pulsed light based therapy (known as BBL, or Broad Band Light) to firm aging skin and activate new collagen growth.
Our skin is one of our most prominent features, and SkinTyte™ can help reduce the signs of aging skin through tightening. SkinTyte™ can help improve sagging skin in the following areas:
People who struggle with sagging or loose skin are candidates for SkinTyte™. Many of our SkinTyte™ patients are former body or neck liposuction patients who love their new contours, but dislike the residual saggy, “hanging” skin.
SkinTyte™ utilizes pulsed light technology, called BBL or BroadBand Light, to 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 the 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 increased firmness and elasticity.
Treatment time varies based on the treatment area 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.*
A topical anesthetic may be used, but generally cooling the skin is all that is needed, unless treating a very sensitive area, and protective eyewear is worn throughout the procedure.
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.*
There is no downtime associated with SkinTyte™, so you can return to your normal activities right after your treatment. As with any topical laser or light treatment, it is important that patients avoid sun exposure two to four weeks prior to your scheduled session, and definitely afterward.
