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 device on the market. It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage
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.
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 the patient a comfortable and safe
What is the treatment like?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical
anesthetic, however, your physician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. A series of pulses will be
repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30
minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated.
What should I expect after 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 noninvasive there is no downtime so you can resume
regular activities immediately following 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. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients
who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to
four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
What areas can be treated?
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. You should consult
with your physician regarding the treatment options that are best for you.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your physician can personalize a treatment
plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your physician may also combine SkinTyte with other popular
aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
What aftercare do I need?
No special skin care regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen. Your technician can also recommend an at home skin care regimen if desired.
