What Is SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ is a unique laser treatment that helps tighten loose skin caused by aging or pregnancy. It is not as dramatic as a facelift or as invasive as injections. SkinTyte™ uses a heated laser to force the body to produce more collagen while tightening and toning the skin around the treatment area.
Benefits of SkinTyte™
SkinTyte™ offers a number of benefits including the following:
- Improved collagen production, leading to softer, more toned skin.
- Noticeable improvement in skin’s tightness and volume.
As with many laser procedures, your best preparation would be to avoid extensive UV exposure for three weeks prior to your appointment. The most important points to keep in mind if you’re considering undergoing any kind of skin treatment is that no two treatments are alike and no two results are the same. Your results will depend on many factors including your overall health, the area being treated, and your body’s natural response to the treatment. Dr. Aycock takes patient comfort very seriously and will take the time to completely answer your questions and address your concerns.
How Is SkinTyte™ Performed?
SkinTyte™ is a unique laser therapy that can help restructure the skin’s inner elasticity. A laser is passed over the area along with a gentle cooling sensation to help you feel more comfortable and to minimize redness from the laser treatment. You will wear eye protection during the treatment and you will ideally receive 2-5 treatments at 2-4 week intervals, giving your skin plenty of time to heal and produce visibly renewed layers.
Recovery varies from person to person, but downtime is generally minimal and there should be a little discomfort. You may have some slight redness that will disappear within a few hours. SkinTyte™ is a non-invasive procedure, so you will have little to do in terms of recovery.
