Discover SkinTyte: Advanced Non-Surgical Skin Laxity Treatment
Many Naples-area clients who come to Southwest Florida’s Tru Glō Medspa seek anti-aging treatments designed to help restore and/or preserve their youthful appearance. As such, a frequent question posed to our medical practitioners and aestheticians is, “How can you tighten my loose skin?” When we respond “SkinTyte,” a client usually agrees by noting, “Yes, I want you to tighten my skin.” We then must elaborate on our answer by stating that SkinTyte—one word spelled S-k-i-n-T-y-t-e—is a novel, non-invasive, pulsed infrared light therapy that induces skin contraction.
What Causes Skin Laxity?
Skin laxity is a natural result of aging that typically starts becoming apparent between the ages of 35 and 45, depending partly on genetics and lifestyle choices. As we age, our skin’s collagen networks gradually deteriorate while our body’s natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid slowly declines. Meanwhile, that increased skin laxity eases the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, further compromising our once-youthful appearance.
Other factors that can contribute to skin laxity include:
- Rapid weight loss.
- Ultraviolet light damage from the sun.
- Excessive UV exposure in tanning booths.
- Exposure to skin products or detergents containing harsh chemicals.
- Excessive alcohol consumption.
What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte is an FDA-approved laser-based therapy developed by Sciton Inc., a leading developer of medical and aesthetic lasers and light source technologies. SkinTyte delivers gentle pulses of advanced infrared light energy deep into the dermal layers, with the resultant heat-inducing contraction of collagen and elastin fibers that tighten and firm the overall skin layers. The heat energy also triggers the body to increase collagen production, which provides further skin tightening and conditioning benefits during the ensuing months. In fact, the longer-term collagen-boosting effectiveness of SkinTyte allows the treatment to address numerous other skin conditions.
The SkinTyte device includes skin-cooling technology that protects the outer skin layer and adjacent skin structures during treatment. Thus, SkinTyte works from the inside out to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of minor skin damage and imperfections.
SkinTyte Treatment Areas and Conditions Treated
SkinTyte is safe for all skin types and can be used anywhere that can benefit from skin tightening and can be targeted to address specific skin conditions. Tru Glō Medspa clients tend to primarily request SkinTyte treatment for the face, neck, abdomen, and arms. Along with overall skin tightening, we have used SkinTyte as a targeted treatment for:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Minor acne scarring
- Flushed patches
- Erythema (red skin)
- Irregular pigmentation
- Facelift and neck lift surgery scars
- Post-chemical peeling
- Post-collagen injections
What to Expect During SkinTyte Treatment
Your SkinTyte Session at Tru Glō Medspa will be quick and easy with minimal discomfort. While the device’s surface skin-cooling technology minimizes the potential for pain, we offer a topical anesthetic for those with sensitive skin. Each session typically takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area treated.
Once your session has concluded, you are free to leave our medical spa and resume normal daily activities. Most patients experience mild swelling and light redness of the treated area, but this usually subsides within a few days.
What of Your SkinTyte Results?
Most patients first notice SkinTyte results with the immediate sensation of having tighter skin. However, visible reductions in skin laxity and aesthetic improvements to distinct skin conditions typically emerge over the ensuing three to six months. While one treatment session can make a difference, most clients secure the best results with a series of three to five sessions spaced three to four weeks apart. To maintain aesthetic results, most of our clients undergo touch-up treatments after two years.
