While some patients may opt for an invasive, surgical option for skin tightening, there’s now a safer and more effective way treatment option — SkinTyte™. This laser based, non-invasive treatment provides patients with beautiful results that last.
Doctor Bedrick is proud to offer this cutting-edge new treatment at NeoSkin Center. If you’d like more information about this or any of our other comprehensive aesthetic treatment options, contact our Hudson location today to schedule a consultation appointment.
What is SkinTyte™?
Loose, sagging skin is one of the most visible and noticeable signs of aging. With the SkinTyte™ laser, a modality of the reputable Halo™ system, patients can tighten and firm skin on nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Upper arms
The SkinTyte™ laser can also be used to address fine facial wrinkles and lines, redness, mild acne scarring, and other forms of discoloration. This treatment involves only minimal discomfort, giving patients beautiful results without the downsides of more invasive treatments.
How Does it Work?
The SkinTyte™ laser utilizes controlled pulses of infrared energy to gently heat soft tissues and collagen proteins deep within the skin, causing them to coagulate and contract. This jumpstarts the body’s natural process of regeneration and repair, leading to the creation of healthier, stronger proteins and tissues. Over time, this healing response leads to tighter and more youthful-looking skin.
While other laser treatments may cause patients significant discomfort or extended downtime, the SkinTyte™ laser presents a more comfortable alternative by simultaneously cooling the skin as it heats it using sapphire contact cooling technology.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
While a topical anesthetic is typically not applied before each SkinTyte™ treatment session, it may be beneficial if a patient is addressing a particularly sensitive area of the body. The amount of time that each session takes to complete varies depending on the strength of treatment and the specific area being addressed. Typically, we recommend that patients undergo between two and five sessions to see optimal improvements.
Am I a Candidate for SkinTyte™ Treatments?
Nearly any male or female patient interested in improving the appearance of loose sagging skin, moderate redness, and mild wrinkles is a potential candidate for SkinTyte™ treatments. However, patients that have certain medical conditions or are undergoing a pregnancy may not be able to undergo this procedure. In order to ensure your health and safety, it’s important that you schedule a consultation appointment before undergoing treatment.
