“Right after the treatment on my neck, I asked, ‘How long is it going to take for me to see results?’ … ‘Well,’ he said, ‘it’s pretty instant.’ … ‘What do you mean, instant?’ I walked up to the mirror and almost dropped over.” – Anne

Clinical Applications

wrinkles1_0-2Safe and optimized for all skin types, SkinTyte II can predictably, effectively, and comfortably treat any area of the body, giving patients a firmer, more youthful appearance. Skin tightening is an ideal treatment for wrinkles, tightening skin on the abdomen, and firming neck and lower facial tissue.

“I remember my first procedure. When I was driving home, I felt my skin tightening a little bit, not in a bad way, but a good way. I felt there was something happening. There’s no recovery time with this procedure. There’s no redness, there’s no swelling, there’s no bruising. There’s nothing to show that you’ve had anything done to your face except the results.” – Sondra

SkinTyte II utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling. This process causes soft tissue coagulation and deep tissue heating that initiates the body’s natural healing process. Following treatment, a new foundation of collagen is created leading to increased tissue firming.

SkinTyte II utilizes advanced infrared light technology, and patient tailored filters to deeply heat dermal collagen while continuously protecting the treated epidermis with sapphire contact cooling for optical clinical endpoints, safety and comfort. With no need for a topical anesthetic, the energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses to promote contraction and partial coagulation of the collagen, initiating the body’s natural healing process. Following skin tightening treatment at the HCA Skin Care Center in Grand Rapids, a new foundation of collagen is created leading to increased tissue firming.

“The reaction is that, ‘Gosh, your skin looks good! What are you doing?’ It’s a non-invasive way to help your skin look the best it can. There’s no scarring, there’s no downtime, there’s no reason you shouldn’t do it if you want your skin to look as good as it can.” – Janet
