How does SkinTyte® work to reduce skin laxity and the early signs of aging?
SkinTyte® is a skin tightening treatment that uses a combination of broadband light energy to heat deep within the skin. This energy helps to increase natural collagen production, which in turn leads to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. SkinTyte® can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, and thighs, though it is more commonly requested for the face to combat the signs of aging and skin laxity.
How does SkinTyte® treatment work?
During a SkinTyte® treatment session, Dr. Margaret Summerville at Chevy Chase Dermatology will apply a gel to the treatment area. She will then pass an applicator over the skin, delivering pulsed light energy beneath the surface. As the tissue heats up, it will contract and stimulate collagen production. The results of treatment are typically visible after just one session, though optimal results may require 2-3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits associated with SkinTyte® treatments, which is why this procedure has become increasingly popular in recent years. Some of the most common advantages include:
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Tighter, firmer skin
- Improved skin texture and tone
- Reduced appearance of pores
- Minimized sun damage/age spots/uneven skin tone/hyperpigmentation
