Improve skin firmness quickly & comfortably
SkinTyte® II treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface.
SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is an improvement to skin firmness and a more youthful appearance. SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body.
How does it work?
The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse, providing you a comfortable and safe procedure.

What is SkinTyte?
The SkinTyte treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance. SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
SkinTyte™ II is the most advanced laser skin tightening available. It offers better results in one-third to one-half the time of previous skin tightening procedures. The most common areas that are tightened include facial areas like cheek and chin; jawline, neck, abdomen, arms and thighs.
The laser provider will use a handpiece to deliver SkinTyt™ light energy through a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. The series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area for a duration. The number of treatments to obtain desired results varies from patient to patient. A personalized treatment plan will be established for you based on the level of improvement you desire.
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment, and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is noninvasive, there is no downtime, so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
No special skin care regime is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a broad spectrum sunscreen.
In conjunction with your laser treatment, we recommend a consultation with one of our medical aestheticians to develop a customized skin care regimen.
SkinTyte results vary from patient to patient. This treatment is recommended for moderate and noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo a surgical procedure. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened. SkinTyte is recommended to be done in a series and may be scheduled as early as four weeks between treatments.
