Skin gets looser as we age, in part because the body produces less collagen and elastin—the building blocks of tight, smooth skin.
How Does SkinTyte Work?
Fibroblast cells that are responsible for stimulating the production of collagen and elastin become less productive as we age. This is one of the primary reasons our skin sags and we develop wrinkles. SkinTyte delivers light and heat energy deep into the dermis, the thick skin layer below the outer skin (the epidermis).
Using advanced infrared light technology and filters tailored to each patient’s needs, SkinTyte sends rapid pulses through the outer skin and heats dermal collagen while continuously protecting the treatment area with sapphire contact cooling for optical safety and comfort. Patients tolerate the treatment well without topical anesthetics.
This light and heat energy triggers the body’s healing process, producing collagen and elastin to create tighter, firmer skin. The procedure can be used on all skin types, creates excellent results, and features virtually no downtime.
