SKINTYTE | Skin Tightening with Infrared Light
A non-surgical, all-natural option to safely and comfortably tighten the skin of the brow, eyelids, face, lips, earlobes, jawline, neck, chest, abdomen, arms & knees. Skin Tightening is our most popular procedure because it gives results that are natural! Your skin is tightened without surgery, pain, or recovery.
Infrared Skin Tightening works by directing light and heat to a level of the skin called the dermis, where collagen and elastin are. The dermal heating from the Infrared Light stimulates your own collagen and elastin to tighten and rejuvenate. Dermal heating also stimulates new collagen and elastin cells to be produced by fibroblasts in the skin over a period of 2-3 months. Results are long-lasting.
Often visible tightening can be seen immediately, but ongoing tightening occurs for an average of 3 months after your procedure. Your skin will rejuvenate giving you a smooth, glowing texture. With dermal heating, your skin will tighten in your own natural lines of tension resulting in a very natural tightening of the skin. Your skin will never over-tighten. Patients report that their friends and family tell them they look younger, rested, and refreshed.
Most patients continue maintenance treatments with Infrared Light skin tightening every 1-2 years depending on their age. When paired with Ulthera and Juvederm, SkinTyte is a central part of our signature Triple Tone Procedure.
The technology used in SkinTyte is the same technology used by Dr. Reil in developing her patented procedure of Genityte.
SkinTyte is a treatment that delivers an advanced infra-red light to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire surface at the same time. Light energy is distributed in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, which leads to an improved appearance of sagging skin.
As we age, skin loses its youthful firmness and natural elasticity, especially around the jawline and neck where it can add years to your appearance. While no one escapes the forces of aging and gravity, SkinTyte™ can fight against them. SkinTyte uses BroadBand Light (BBL)™ technology the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in the appearance of sagging skin is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms. Your clinician’s treatment plan will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. SkinTyte is a generally quick, comfortable procedure, with typically no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
SkinTyte Before and After
What Is the Treatment Like?
A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure the best results. While the face and neck can typically be done within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the size of the area treated. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment?
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 non-invasive there is typically no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following the treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
What Results Should I Expect?
SkinTyte procedure results may vary from patient to patient. SkinTyte is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your clinician can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
What Aftercare Plan Do I Need?
No special skin care regimen is required following the treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use good sunscreen. Your clinician will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.
