What is SkinTyte?
The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse. This provides the patient a comfortable and safe procedure. Safe and optimized for all skin types. As a result, SkinTyte can predictably, effectively, and comfortably treat any area of the body where improvement is desired. Most importantly this results in a firmer and more youthful appearance.
What causes skin laxity?
- Genetics and the natural aging process- As we age changes take place in the facial fat pads and bone causing the skin to sag, form folds and jowl. Additionally, our bodies produce less and less collagen as we age. Collagen production is essential for keeping our skin plump, firm and youthful.
- Sun Exposure- The amount of UV exposure accumulated over a persons lifetime often contributes to the most damage to collagen and elastin fibers in the skins dermal layer. This contributes to accelerating sagging.
- Pregnancy- Saggy postpartum skin typically presents around the breasts and abdomen, where the skin stretches during pregnancy.
- Weight loss-Loose skin occurs as a result of major weight loss or constant weight loss and weight gain.
What type of downtime should I expect?
This is a non invasive treatment with no downtime. You may resume all normal activities immediately after.
How many treatments do I need?
We recommend a series of 6 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart. After your initial series consistency is key, we like adding on a SkinTyte to your regularly scheduled facials or quarterly ForeverYoung treatments to continue collagen production. Results are seen progressively over time as the collagen begins rebuilding and can last for up to two years.
What products do you recommend for skin laxity?
Your at home skin care routine is the one thing you can do everyday to improve the overall health and look of your skin. Consequently, an at home skin care routine will improve the outcome of your treatments. We recommend a dedicated skincare routine to include a sunscreen applied daily to the face neck and chest, a retinol to help promote cell turnover and a specialty firming product such as revisions Nectifirm or BodiFirm.
