Patient response can vary after a SkinTyte treatment. Erythema (redness) is usually experienced within a few minutes after the completion of the procedure. A slight sunburn sensation in and around the area treated is also normal and expected. These reactions tend to subside within 1-4 hours after the treatment.
The treated area must be treated with care. BE GENTLE! Do not scratch or pick at your skin.
The full effects of the SkinTyte treatment appear gradually. It can take 3 to 6 months for full results, although some patients do see them sooner. Full results have been known to last for up to 6 months, but recent studies have shown that some thermal collagen modifications have lasted up to several years, depending on the rate of the patients aging process.
HOW DOES SKINTYTE™ WORK?
The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat collagen in your skin. The heat initiates the body’s natural healing processes, which create a renewed collagen foundation resulting in 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 procedure.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER SKINTYTE™?
Patients who should consider SkinTyte are looking for moderate, noticeable skin tightening without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months.
WHAT CAN THE PATIENT EXPECT DURING A TREATMENT?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic cream. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results.
HOW OFTEN DOES SKINTYTE™ NEED TO BE DONE?
SkinTyte results are best when done in a series of 5 treatments approximately 3-4 weeks apart. Visible results may not be seen until after the second or third treatment. The full extent of improvement may take up to four months to see.
CAN TANNED SKIN BE TREATED?
Yes, tanned skin can be treated.
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, and abdomen.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
On average, most patients will need 5 treatments approximately 3-4 weeks apart.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE MY SKIN TO HEAL?This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with no downtime. NO special care regime is required following the treatment. Your skin will be slightly red or pink following the treatment. This will subside after about 20-30 minutes. You are able to return to work, apply makeup and resume your activities immediately. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen.
