Many times when you think of skin tightening, you think of older women on daytime infomercials talking about the skin on their face and neck. As we age, our skin can lose collagen, become crepey, and start to sag. But did you know that those things can all happen to young people too? If you have recently given birth, lost a significant amount of weight, or have spent extended periods of time in the sun, you might have loose skin too. At Precision MD, we have taken skin tightening into the 21st century with the innovative technology known as SkinTyte™!
How Does SkinTyte™ Work and What Is Treatment Like?
SkinTyte™ uses advanced infrared light technology combined with patient-tailored filters to heat dermal collagen on a deep level while continuously protecting the epidermis with cooling endpoints. This process initiates your body’s natural healing process and creates a new collagen foundation, leading to increased skin and tissue firmness. During your treatment, the SkinTyte™ light energy is delivered onto your skin in a series of rapid, gentle pulses. Then, the process is repeated on the treatment area to ensure the best results. For most patients, there is no need to topical anesthetic; however, Dr. Cuber and Staff at Precision MD in Elk Grove may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.
What Areas Can Be Treated With SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ treatments are safe for men and women of all ages and ethnicities. It can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in skin firmness is desired. Popular areas for SkinTyte™ treatment include:
How Many Treatments Will I Need and What Results Should I Expect?
The number of SkinTyte™ treatments varies from patient to patient based on the laxity of his or her skin. Dr. Cuber and his Staff can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Patients who get the most satisfaction out of SkinTyte™ treatment are ones who desire noticeable, moderate skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months to see, as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened in that time.
