SkinTyte in Philadelphia

Introduction to SkinTyte

Love the skin you’re in!

As we age, skin loses its youthful firmness and natural elasticity, especially around the jawline and neck where it can add years to your appearance. While no one escapes the forces of aging and gravity, SkinTyte™ can fight against them.

Our Philadelphia SkinTyte patients have seen tremendous advantages to this treatment, reducing the signs of aging and increasing collagen production. Below, we’ve included information about the treatment. If you have any questions, please contact us today to learn more.

What is SkinTyte?

Let’s start with the basics

SkinTyte is a treatment that uses BroadBand Light (BBL)™ to deliver an advanced infra-red light to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire surface at the same time. Light energy is distributed in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, which leads to an improved appearance of sagging skin.

What are the Benefits of SkinTyte?

SkinTyte is a safe, effective way to improve mild to moderate skin laxity on the face, neck, or body. 

  • There is no downtime or need for a topical anesthetic and patients can immediately return to normal activity. 
  • After a series of treatments, this stimulation leads to the appearance of firmer tissue and a more youthful appearance.
  • Infrared energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses to promote contraction and partial coagulation of the collagen, initiating the body’s natural healing process. 

Who are the Best Candidates for SkinTyte?

SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in the appearance of sagging skin is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms. Your clinician’s treatment plan will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting SkinTyte in Philadelphia is education. By reading this article or calling our office, you should first have a firm understanding of the procedure. The second step is to book a consultation. During your appointment, you’ll be able to ask questions, listen to our expert recommendations, and together we’ll decide if this is the best treatment for you. 

If you and our team both feel that SkinTyte is the best for you after the consultation, we’ll book the treatment. We’ll have specific questions on skin regimen, medications, and overall health. Be upfront and honest not only with your answers but also with your goals. Our goals are aligned, to help you uncover the best version of yourself.

What to Expect on the Day of your SkinTyte treatment?

A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure the best results. While the face and neck can typically be done within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the size of the area treated. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.

SkinTyte Recovery

Since the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive there is typically no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following the treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
