SkinTyte Skin Firming for Sagging Skin
Skin Firming - SkinTyte™
What is SkinTyte?
Available at UW Health Transformations near the far west side of Madison, Wisconsin (located in Middleton, Wisconsin), SkinTyte skin firming treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and uses pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface.
SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
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. Popular areas include:
How Skin Firming Works
The SkinTyte procedure uses 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 you a comfortable and safe procedure.
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic - however, the physician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. 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. The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and the physician can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
The physician may also combine SkinTyte with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your 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 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. 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 Transformations physician can also recommend an at home skin care regimen if desired.
SkinTyte procedure results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months, as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
