What is SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ is a BBL treatment that actually tightens the skin by heating deeper layers of dermal collagen. The heat initiates the body’s natural healing process and creates new collagen for stronger, firmer skin.
The SkinTyte™ radio frequency is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic; however, your technician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated and the degree of corrective care needed.
You may experience some mild redness and swelling in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within an hour. Since the SkinTyte™ procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
Who is a good candidate for SkinTyte™?
The SkinTyte™ procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Popular areas of treatment include the face, neck, abdomen and arms. Results often take up to three months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
SkinTyte™ treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. For maximum skin enhancements, Dr. Wiener recommends 3 to 6 treatments spaced three weeks apart. Our Medical Aesthetician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. No special skin care regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a physical sunscreen.
