What is Skintyte?

As you begin to age, your body loses the ability to produce collagen and elastin as it once did. This results in a loss of volume and firmness and, ultimately, in loose, sagging skin. This can be especially troublesome at the jawline where jowls may appear, with the jawline losing its youthful definition. SkinTyte is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of skin tightening which uses the therapeutic effects of pulsed light energy.

How is Skintyte Used?

SkinTyte treatments are performed by Dr. Karam with a specialized hand-held device that delivers pulsed light technology deep into the layers of your skin. This technology deeply heats the layers of your skin, stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful, firm skin. After treatment, your skin will increase its production of these natural skin-firming elements, creating volume where it had once vanished and tightening loose, hanging skin.

Is Skintyte Non-Surgical?

Yes. SkinTyte is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of skin tightening and facial contouring. Since there are no incisions, needles, or threads in the treatment with SkinTyte, there is no downtime or recovery required. You may notice mild redness immediately following treatment, which should fade within a couple of hours. You will be able to immediately return to your regular activities once your treatment has concluded and can apply makeup at once.

What Are The Benefits Of Skintyte?

SkinTyte has a variety of skin-boosting benefits including:

  • Increasing skin quality and firmness
  • Softening facial lines and creases
  • Restoring the contours of the face
  • Improving skin laxity
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
  • Stimulating increased production of collagen and elastin

What Can I Expect During Treatment With Skintyte?

Because of the nature of the hand-held device used in SkinTyte, a topical anesthetic is usually not required with this advanced treatment. Dr. Karam will carefully pass the applicator over the surface of your skin, delivering pulsed light energy deep into the layers of your skin. Delivered in a series of quick, gentle pulses the energy heats the layers of the dermis to a specific temperature which stimulates your body’s regenerative processes. When your treatment is complete, your skin continues to increase its production of collagen and elastin for even greater skin tightening and facial contouring benefits. Treatment usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete.

Francine M.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

Kris R.

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

Janice S.

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
