With age, your skin loses volume and elasticity, with deep lines and creases, jowls, and lax skin also can start appearing. SkinTyte is a groundbreaking, non-surgical treatment to tighten face and neck skin with pulsed light technology which penetrates deep into the inner layers of the skin to restore tighter, firmer, more youthful skin.
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.
SkinTyte treatments are performed by Dr. Karam with a specialized hand-held device which 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.
SkinTyte has a variety of skin boosting benefits including:
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.
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.
Following treatment, your body will produce new stores of collagen and elastin restoring facial contours and increasing your skin’s firmness. SkinTyte is most beneficial when a series of five treatments are performed, usually spaced three to four weeks apart. You will continue to see skin tightening benefits emerge over the course of three to six months following treatment. Your results will be evident for two years or more following treatment with SkinTyte.
Like all procedures, there are a few risks associated with SkinTyte. You may experience mild to moderate facial redness and swelling, or mild discomfort during the procedure. Though rare, bruising and blistering may occur, which may be treated with ice packs applied to the affected area. Rare changes in pigmentation may be evident immediately following treatment, which usually fade with time.
