As our skin ages, collagen and elastin production begins to slow. This decline causes our skin to lose volume, lift, and firmness. As a result, skin begins to sag and droop, especially along the jaw and neckline. Until recently, surgery was the only option to address loose or crepey skin. Non-surgical, SkinTyte™ offers an effective option for those just beginning to notice the loss of elasticity and sagging in their skin. It is virtually pain-free, has zero downtime, and can help restore subtle lift and tightening to sagging skin.

How SkinTyte™ Works

SkinTyte™ utilizes advanced infrared light technology to deeply heat dermal collagen and firm areas of loose, sagging skin anywhere on the face or body. The laser’s energy is delivered in gentle, rapid pulses of light that promote tissue contraction and initiate the body’s natural healing process. Treatments do not require topical numbing, can be performed on any skin type or color, and are safe to conduct in any season, including Summer.

During a SkinTyte treatment, your Skin Artisans provider will cover your skin with a clear, cooling gel that helps the laser comfortably glide across your skin. They will pass the laser over the skin in a series of passes. Each pass delivers gentle heat into your skin that promotes collagen production while maintaining optimal temperature on the skin’s surface to ensure safety and comfort. This process results in a new, stronger collagen layer that can last up to one year or more with continued maintenance.

Benefits of SkinTyte™

No Downtime – Since there is no downtime associated with SkinTyte™, patients may resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.

Superior Technology – SkinTyte™ offers fast, safe, and effective treatments tailored to any skin type.

Long-Lasting Results – Because infrared light energy stimulates the body’s natural healing process to achieve skin tightening, the results of a SkinTyte™ treatment series are natural-looking and long-lasting.

Who is the Best Candidate for SkinTyte™?

SkinTyte™ is best suited for those just beginning to notice sagging skin on their face and neckline. It is not a viable option for those with deep wrinkles or severe sagging of the skin. In these cases, surgery may be needed to restore tightness and lift to the skin.

What does a SkinTyte™ treatment feel like?

Most patients find SkinTyte™ very comfortable, if not relaxing! Your eyes will be protected during your treatment as the laser flashes a bright light across your skin. Your skin will feel warmer and warmer with each pass as its temperature rises to a therapeutic level. Topical numbing is not needed with SkinTyte™, and no downtime is required.

What result can be expected with SkinTyte™?

Patients can expect mild redness, swelling, and tightness in their skin for a few minutes after SkinTyte™. Skin quickly returns to normal, and patients can immediately apply makeup and resume their regular activities.

Results with SkinTyte™ are dependent on the individual, the area being treated, the degree of sagging in the skin, and the settings used by your SkinTyte™ provider. However, most patients see peak results from SkinTyte™ three months after their treatment series has been completed and collagen production has accelerated.

How many SkinTyte™ treatments will I need?

Although most patients will see subtle results from a single SkinTyte™ treatment, Skin Artisans recommends a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart to see significant, visible improvements. An annual maintenance treatment is recommended after your series to keep skin looking tight and firm all year round.

SkinTyte™ can also be combined with other treatments, like BBL™, to enhance your overall result.
