Treat Any Area For A More Youthful Appearance

As we age, skin loses its youthful firmness and cushion. Especially around the jawline and neck, it can add years to your appearance. And while no one escapes the forces of aging and gravity, SkinTyte can defend against them. SkinTyte can treat most areas of the body where improvement is desired, giving you the appearance of firmer, youthful-looking skin.

What is the SkinTyte laser treatment?
The SkinTyte laser is a skin tightening cosmetic procedure that utilizes advanced infrared technology to deeply heat the dermal layer of the skin. As the laser heats the soft tissues, it simultaneously protects the epidermis (top layer) of the skin with sapphire cooling contact to ensure maximum safety and comfort for the patient during the procedure. Rapid, gentle pulses of laser energy are delivered to the skin during the procedure, promoting the contraction and partial coagulation of collagen. The body’s natural healing process is induced, allowing for new collagen to form and increase the overall firmness of the skin. By encouraging new collagen production in the skin, the SkinTyte laser results in a complexion that is more youthful, tighter, and smoother in appearance.

How does SkinTyte work?
Broad Band Light (BBL™) infrared light treatment heats the collagen in the skin, encouraging the natural healing process of the body. As a result, new, healthy collagen is produced and the skin increases in firmness. BBL treatment has been shown to impact the expression of genes associated with the aging process of skin so that it more closely resembles youthful skin. Evidence from scientific studies supports the hypothesis that regulators of aging can be altered in human skin using BBL technology to provide a functional change.

Not only has BBL been clinically proven to improve the overall appearance of photo-aged skin, but compelling evidence indicates that regular, long-term maintenance of BBL treatments will enhance the expression of longevity-related genes in aged skin cells. BBL helps to essentially reverse the aging process and return skin to a genetically youthful state. With proper skincare, sun avoidance, and regular treatments, this non-invasive treatment can help to effectively tighten the skin and help it maintain a more youthful appearance.

Does SkinTyte laser hurt?
SkinTyte uses advanced infrared light energy technology to deeply heat soft tissue and dermal collagen while continuously protecting the treated epidermis with sapphire contact cooling, which in turn ensures maximum patient safety and an overall comfortable experience. This procedure is completely painless and there is no need even for a topical anesthetic.

How long does SkinTyte laser take?
The total time required for performing a treatment with SkinTyte laser will ultimately depend on the area of the body being treated. For the face and neck, treatment is typically completed within just half an hour. Since there is no downtime involved, and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately following the completion of the BBL procedure.

Is there any preparation involved for getting SkinTyte laser treatment?
There is no preparation required for treatment with SkinTyte laser. Since the procedure is painless, no topical anesthetic is required in anticipation of treatment. The only recommendation that Dr. Green makes to her patients who are planning on having a SkinTyte laser treatment is that they avoid sun exposure for 2-3 weeks prior to the procedure and do not use a self-tanner for a similar period of time.

Are there any side effects associated with SkinTyte laser treatment?
In general, there are virtually no side effects associated with SkinTyte laser treatments and additionally, no recovery time involved. Most patients will continue to resume their daily regular activities immediately after a session of SkinTyte laser treatment. Some patients may experience some mild redness in the treatment area immediately after the procedure is completed, though this typically resolves within one hour. There is no skin bruising or bleeding involved with this non-surgical skin tightening cosmetic procedure, which is in part why the SkinTyte laser treatments have become such a popular option for complete skin rejuvenation in the United States.
