BBL SkinTyte Skin Tightening Treatment

Improve the appearance of sagging skin with a quick and comfortable treatment – for ALL skin types.

SkinTyte™ uses infrared light to deeply heat skin, while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. With this advanced technology, the treatment initiates the body’s natural healing process, which leads to a more youthful appearance – with no down time and no need for topical anaesthesia. In fact, the treatment has been described as a warm, relaxing massage! It can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, thighs and arms.

How it works

SkinTyte™ is based on the principles of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation, leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a comfortable temperature before, during and after each pulse providing the patient a pleasant and safe procedure. 

What to expect

The SkinTyte™ light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. The face and neck will typically be treated within 40 minutes. 

You may experience some redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and thsi hsould return to normal within minutes. The SkinTyte treatment in non-invasive with no downtime and patients can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. Makeup can also be applied immediately after treatment.

The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin firmness improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to 4 months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.

The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient and your personalised treatment plan will be based on the level of improvement desired.
