At Wise Aesthetics in Carmel, IN, we offer an effective skin-tightening treatment called SkinTyte®. This device uses advanced infrared light technology to treat the primary cause of skin laxity: decreased collagen production. It’s known as the most effective light-based skin tightening treatment of its kind, and you can experience all of its benefits right here at our office and achieve tighter, younger, and healthier-looking skin.
What Is SkinTyte®?
SkinTyte® is a non-invasive energy-based treatment that is designed to treat skin laxity. It’s non-surgical and can address loose skin on the face, neck, and body. It’s safe for all skin types and can make a significant difference in the health and appearance of the skin. This non-invasive treatment can reverse skin laxity, one of the most common signs of aging, and delay the need for patients to undergo a surgical skin tightening procedure to address their concerns.
Experience SkinTyte®: The Non-Invasive Skin-Tightening Treatment
You don’t have to live with skin laxity, and though it is one of the most common signs of aging, SkinTyte® provides a way to naturally and painlessly improve skin elasticity. Once you undergo the treatment, you’ll experience the benefits firsthand and enjoy healthier skin long-term.
SkinTyte® uses advanced infrared light technology to increase collagen and elastin production. The heat energy causes collagen in the dermal layers to contract but also forces the body to respond by increasing collagen and elastin at the treatment site. Results appear gradually in the weeks following treatment and will continue to improve with successive treatments.
SkinTyte® treatments rely on advanced technology and light-based energy to strengthen the skin at the structural layers, thereby tightening the skin, firming the treatment area, and promoting youth and an improved skin texture. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
- The treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive
- Results appear slowly, so you’ll never look like you had something done
- There’s no downtime
- Treatments are quick
- We can design a customized treatment plan to address one or multiple areas
- The device’s light-based energy targets skin laxity at the source
- The treatment process is natural
- Results are long-lasting
- Patients with all skin types qualify for treatment
Anyone with loose skin on their face, neck, or body can benefit from this treatment. It’s an effective option for those who want to delay a surgical skin tightening procedure and achieve natural yet noticeable results after completing the recommended sessions. Since this device is safe for all skin types, patients can schedule treatments with confidence, knowing that not only is it an effective treatment but also a safe one.
If you have more questions about SkinTyte® and want to determine whether you are a good candidate, we can give you more information and answer those questions at your initial consultation. You can discuss the primary areas you want to treat, and we can evaluate them in person, give you more details about the treatment and what your unique treatment plan will look like, and then move forward with the process that will tighten your skin naturally.
During a SkinTyte® treatment, you can expect a warming sensation as the flashes of broadband light penetrate your skin. The treatment is comfortable and doesn’t require an anesthetic numbing solution. We will use the device to gently heat the treatment area, performing a specific number of passes to promote collagen production.
One of the benefits of this device is that it’s engineered to maintain a comfortable skin temperature during treatment, which ensures that the surrounding area remains unharmed and cool during treatment. It also promotes patient comfort and eliminates the need for downtime.
Typical treatments take approximately 20 minutes from start to finish. However, the total treatment time can vary based on the number and size of the areas we treat during an appointment. Once we design a treatment plan to address each of your concerns, we can give you a better idea of how long your appointment will take so you can plan accordingly.
It can take up to 12 weeks to see noticeable results, as 12 weeks is the maximum amount of time the body may take to increase natural collagen production. You can expect improvements in the health and appearance of your skin each week following your treatment.
After you undergo the recommended number of treatments, you can expect improvements in the health and strength of your skin, and your results will last 12 months or longer. You can schedule follow-up treatment as needed to promote healthy skin or address different areas of the face or body.
One of the main benefits of this treatment is that it doesn’t require downtime. Since there are no surgical techniques used during treatment, you won’t have to plan for an extensive recovery. We will provide you with some aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. It’s important that you avoid excessive sun exposure after your treatment.
Since the device uses light energy during treatments, your skin will temporally be more sensitive to the sun. If you know that you’ll be out in the sun, wear protective clothing and use quality sunscreen to protect your skin from UV exposure.
The best results come from a customized treatment plan, which typically includes a series of treatments with four to eight weeks between each. This treatment protocol ensures you can continue promoting collagen and elastin production to thoroughly address each treatment area to treat skin laxity, reverse it, improve skin elasticity, and enjoy long-lasting results.
