If you desire a more youthful appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure like a face lift, talk to your plastic surgeon about your laser treatment options. With non-invasive laser skin firming treatments like SkinTyte, you can achieve smoother, more elastic skin after as few as one appointment.
- What is SkinTyte? SkinTyte is an innovative laser treatment technique that utilizes infrared energy to stimulate collagen production. During the procedure, your physician or licensed aesthetician will direct the infrared energy to specified areas of the face. The energy will then penetrate the upper layers of skin to reach the dermis, where collagen resides.
- How does SkinTyte work? Collagen is responsible for skin’s youthful appearance, and collagen production is what creates suppleness and elasticity in the skin. With age, though, collagen production begins to slow and existing collagen begins to deteriorate as a result of factors like sun exposure and smoking. The infrared energy harnessed during a SkinTyte treatment stimulates collagen fibers, effectively promoting new collagen growth and restoring the skin’s former suppleness and elasticity.
- How quickly will a patient see results with SkinTyte? Unlike surgical procedures, SkinTyte is performed on an outpatient basis and requires a shorter recovery period. During the procedure itself, patients experience little to no discomfort and will begin to see results in a matter of days. For the most effective results, your doctor may recommend a series of regular treatments performed over several months. While SkinTyte is commonly used to restore the vitality of facial skin, it is also effective on other parts of the body that have experienced collagen loss, such as the stomach.
