What is SkinTyte II™?

SkinTyte II™ is a non-invasive light energy treatment used to firm the skin and reduce wrinkling. SkinTyte II™ warms the collagen under the skin, causing it to contract, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. The most common application areas are the face, neck, and chest, however SkinTyte II™ can also be used to treat the abdomen, hips, upper arms, and hands.

What Can I Expect After a SkinTyte II™ Treatment?

Some patients may experience some redness and swelling post treatment, but icing can help with any discomfort. Many will feel that their skin already looks and feels tighter after the first treatment, but the full effect can be seen over a three to six-month period. The number of treatments needed can vary but most require anywhere between three to five treatments for best results.
