Available at FACE Skincare~Medical~Wellness in the Birmingham area, SkinTyte™ uses pulses of infrared light to stimulate collagen development and skin rejuvenation.
This non-invasive, comfortable treatment provides skin tightening and long-lasting collagen enhancement to keep your skin looking firm and resilient. This procedure works well for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity but do not feel ready for more invasive treatments or for an extended recovery time.
SkinTyte™ uses infrared light pulses to cause changes to the deeper layers of skin that stimulate collagen production. Painless, easy treatment sessions and no downtime make this a popular choice for those who need minor tightening and firming improvements.
The pulses of infrared energy from SkinTyte™ create heat under the skin. This heat signals to the skin that damage has occurred, resulting in a cascade of healing factors, and it also causes collagen to tighten and stick to other collagen molecules. This tightens the collagen network under your skin, providing lift.
Over time your skin responds to the heat from treatment by producing new collagen, providing tightening, lifting, and improved skin condition. This new collagen takes time to develop, but once it has formed, it will last in the skin for up to a year or more. If you seek long-lasting results with no downtime and no invasive procedures, you may consider SkinTyte™.
You will have a gel applied to your face to keep the skin cool, in addition to the device’s cooling sapphire tips. A wand applies the pulses of energy to targeted areas of the skin, causing a sensation of warmth but no uncomfortable heat. Treatment length varies, but facial treatments last an average of half an hour.
You may need four to six treatments, each a few weeks apart, to see maximum results, and after treatment, you can expect full results to develop over the course of the next three to four months as new collagen develops.
If you have mild loose skin or other signs of aging, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. For people with severe sagging or heavy lines and wrinkles, another procedure may give better results. The ideal candidate wants minor lifting and tightening without discomfort or downtime.
You can go back to your normal routine right away. You will need to avoid sun exposure for the next 24 hours and wear sunscreen consistently thereafter. Sun exposure can damage the results of your treatment, so everyday sunscreen should become a habit. The skin may appear pink or red and feel warm after treatment, but these results last less than an hour.
