SkinTyte may be considered if anti-aging creams are not enough and surgery is too much. New advances in light energy have led to the development of a non-invasive treatment for loose skin known as SkinTyte. SkinTyte works by stimulating and increasing collagen production in the upper, middle, and deep dermis of your skin. A SkinTyte treatment is a comfortable, effective and affordable way to firm, tighten, and lift your skin for a more youthful appearance.

What is the treatment like?
Before coming in for a SkinTyte treatment it is important to remove any facial make-up, ointments or creams. Men are advised to shave the day-of the appointment before coming in for treatment. The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. A few passes will be delivered to ensure best results. Generally the face and neck can be treated within 30 minutes, but the actual time will depend on the area that is being treated. No topical anesthetic cream is needed for this procedure.
What should I expect after treatment?
You may experience some mild redness in the area that was treated immediately after, however this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive and there is no downtime, you can resume regular activities immediately following the treatment. You can also apply sunscreen and makeup as soon as you would like after the treatment.
What results should I expect?
The SkinTyte delivers noticeable results with no down time. However, the procedure is not a substitute for a surgical face-lift and results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin needs time to rebuild and strengthen.
What areas can be treated?
SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where you may want to have improvement in your skin firmness. Popular areas for treatment include the face, neck, abdomen, knees, thighs, buttocks and arms.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart is typically recommended for most patients. We will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. We may also suggest a combination of SkinTyte with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
What aftercare do I need?
No special skincare regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use an appropriate sunscreen with a minimum of an SPF 30. We will also recommend an at home skincare regimen to compliment you treatment.
