What is SkinTyte II?

A Cosmetic BBL/IPL/Laser Skin Treatment

The SkinTyte II treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte II can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance.

How does SkinTyte II work?

The SkinTyte II procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing the patient a comfortable and safe procedure.

What is the treatment like?

The SkinTyte II light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated.

What should I expect after treatment?

You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte II procedure is noninvasive there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.

What results should I expect?

SkinTyte II procedure results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte II procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take 4-6 months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.

What areas can be treated?

SkinTyte II 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. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, and arms. You should consult with your skin tightening team regarding the treatment options that are best for you.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your skin tightening team can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your skin tightening team may also combine SkinTyte II with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What aftercare do I need?

No special skin care regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen. Your skin tightening team can also recommend an at home skin care regimen if desired.
