Loose, sagging skin can be a bothersome problem for men and women of all ages. It can occur as a result of changes in weight, prolonged sun damage, or age-related volume loss. As we get older, our skin becomes less elastic due to lowered levels of collagen production leaving us with an unwanted sag. But now, there’s a non-surgical procedure designed to help us tighten sagging skin sans downtime.
It’s called SKINTYTE™, and it’s revolutionizing the way we think about skin tightening. SKINTYTE™ is an entirely non-invasive procedure that addresses mild to moderate sagging skin via advanced infrared light technology. The FDA-approved treatment allows your skin care specialist to get rid of lax skin throughout the face and body.
During your short, in-office treatment, your SKINTYTE™ technician will deliver bursts of pulsed infrared energy deep below the surface of the skin. No anesthetic is needed, and even larger areas can be done in as little as 30-minutes. The integrated sapphire cooling tip maximizes patient comfort while allowing your technician to precisely target deep tissue.
After your SKINTYTE™ appointment, you’ll be able to return to your normal day-to-day routine immediately. There are typically no major side effects from the procedure. You may experience minor redness or swelling which should quickly dissipate within a few hours post-treatment.
SKINTYTE™ Consultations Available
Directly after your appointment, your skin will feel firmer, and tighter. Optimal results can be seen 2-weeks following your SKINTYTE™ treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually begin to fade and sagging skin will be less prominent. SKINTYTE™ produces lasting results up to 6-months.
While many patients can achieve dramatic results with just one treatment, we typically recommend a series of 3-6 sessions for optimal results. Once your desired results are obtained, treatments can be performed as needed to prolong the effects of your initial SKINTYTE™ sessions.
SKINTYTE™ can be done on its own or paired with other anti-aging treatments for enhanced results. At the time of your in-person consultation, Dr. Geer will talk to you about your concerns and determine your candidacy for SKINTYTE™ treatments. Whatever your goals may be, Dr. Geer can create a customized treatment plan to help.
