Aging is a process that changes our lives. It is a natural method wherein the skin loses its youthful firmness and cushion. When wrinkles and fine lines start to appear, especially on the neck and jawline, you look more tired and old. These signs of aging add several years to your appearance.
There is no escape from skin aging, but you can certainly delay it by following a healthy lifestyle that includes eating well, exercising, and adopting a good skincare regime. Once the signs of old-age appear, you can fight them with SkinTyte at Chesapeake Laser and Skin Care Center.
What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment used to treat skin laxity and sagging. It is based on the principle of selective thermolysis, which delivers pulsed light technology to warm the skin while cooling and safeguarding the entire region. The rapid, gentle pulses of light energy delivered to the skin initiate the body’s natural healing sequence, leading to increased firmness in the skin.
SkinTyte is tailored for all skin types a well as all skin colors. It can also handle any area of the body where the patient desires the improvement of firmness. The safe, swift, and cost-effective treatment comfortably treats all areas of the body, which include the face, neck, abdomen, and arms, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance.
How does SkinTyte work?
SkinTyte offers fast, effective, and dependable results using advanced infrared light technology. The patient-tailored filters for optical clinical endpoints, safety, and convenience, make SkinTyte suitable for everyone.
The treatment procedure deeply heats the dermal to stimulate collagen, and the sapphire contact cooling continuously protects the treated epidermis. The method delivers rapid, gentle pulses to promote contraction and partial thickening of the collagen, which initiates the body’s intrinsic healing process. The end result of the treatment is youthful-looking skin with firmer tissue.
What to expect from
the SkinTyte treatment?
The SkinTyte treatment is used to treat loose and sagging skin in all parts of the body. During your first SkinTyte treatment consultation at Chesapeake Laser and Skin Care Center, your healthcare provider will review your family’s and your medical history to find any underlying causes for your skin ailment.
A physical examination of your skin helps understand the depth of the skin problem and if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. On determining your eligibility, a treatment plan is created that includes the area to be treated and the number of sessions you will need based on the depth of the damage.
The treatment takes up to 30 minutes but varies from person to person. The targeted area is cleaned with an antiseptic at the beginning of the procedure. A numbing gel is also applied to the area to ensure that you do not experience any discomfort during the procedure.
You will also be given goggles to protect your eyes. Your healthcare provider will slowly glide the SkinTyte handpiece over the targeted area. This device supplies pulses of infrared light that feel hot. However, the built-in cooling system keeps you comfortable.
What to expect after the SkinTyte treatment?
After the SkinTyte treatment, you may experience mild redness in the targeted area. The redness will reduce almost immediately, and the skin will go back to normal within minutes. As it is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime associated with the procedure, and you can get back to normal activities quickly following the treatment. You can also make use of makeup and sunscreen.
Your healthcare provider will recommend dedicated aftercare that needs to be followed thoroughly. There isn’t any special skincare regime that needs to be followed, but you will be asked to protect your skin from direct sunlight, which is quite essential. Based on the well-being of your skin, your doctor may also suggest an at-home skincare regime.
How soon can you see
the improvements in your skin?

Because there are no side effects associated with the method, you may feel doubtful that you’ve had any treatment done altogether. Have patience and wait a while and you will start to see noticeable changes a couple of days after the procedure.
