Reduce Sagging Skin and Restore Your Skin’s Youthfulness!
Tired of looking at sagging jowls, loose skin under your chin or on your tummy, but not ready for surgery? SkinTyte™ laser may be the answer. As we age, the skin ages too, losing its natural collagen and elasticity. Loose skin can occur anywhere on the body, but it is especially common in the face, neck, abdomen and arms.
SkinTyte™ uses BroadBand Light (BBL)™ technology to deeply heat dermal collagen. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during and after each laser pulse, making the procedure comfortable and safe.
With no need for a topical anesthetic, the energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses to promote skin contraction and tightening, initiating the body’s natural healing process, leading to increased tissue firming with no down time. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
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. At the Stern Center, your treatment plan will be tailored to match your skin type and desired results.
Dr. Stern also utilizes the SkinTyte™ laser for our post-operative Allura ™ laser liposuction patients to further tighten the skin and achieve optimal results.
A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure 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. The treatment generally feels a little warm,but is not painful and there is no need for topical anesthetic.
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within minutes. Since SkinTyte™ is non-invasive, there is no downtime, so you can resume normal activities immediately following the treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Stern and our aesthetician, Kaylene will personalize a treatment plan based on the area being treated, the amount of laxity and the level of improvement you desire. Full results are generally achieved four months after your final treatment.
No Special skincare regimen is required following SkinTyte™ laser. However, as with all of our treatments optimal results depend upon using an appropriate skincare regimen. The Stern Center Team will help design the best skin care program for you to keep you looking your best for years to come!
