Tight, Toned & Youthful Skin SkinTyte™ skin tightening treatment at Minnesota Gynecology and Aesthetics with a non-ablative approach to firmer skin. As we age, skin can become loose and saggy. SkinTyte laser skin tightening firms and tightens skin on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired, including the face, neck, abdomen and arms.
Through a series of 6-10 minimally-invasive treatments, most patients can achieve their goal. This ground-breaking technology is used to selectively heat the dermal collagen deep in your skin while at the same time cooling the epidermis (outer layer of skin) prior to, during, and after treatment, reducing pain and minimizing internal thermal injury to adjacent skin structures. The result is partial coagulation and contraction of collagen which tightens the skin.
SkinTyte can also be used in combination with other treatments and procedures at Minnesota Gynecology and Aesthetics.
SkinTyte Skin Tightening FAQs
What is the treatment like?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face or neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, actual time will depend on the area treated.
When will I start seeing results?
Most people will experience immediate results after just one treatment. In most cases, 6-10 SkinTyte treatments will deliver maximum results, with possible follow up sessions in the next year or two.
What kind of recovery should I expect from a SkinTyte treatment?
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime, and you can resume regular activities immediately following your treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
