The SkinTyte procedure is similar to the PhotoLite IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment that we have offered for years. It utilizes a broadband of light energy to heat the deeper layer of skin, the dermis. This stimulates new collagen formation leading to increased skin firmness. The procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement who are not yet ready or do not desire surgery.
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for topical anesthetic. You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte photo rejuvenation procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
The SkinTyte procedure is not a substitute for surgery and results vary from patient to patient. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened. A series of 4-6 treatments spaced two to four weeks apart is typical of most patients and is often combined with other laser treatments to provide optimal results.
