Say goodbye to sagging skin on your face, neck, knees, abdomen, thighs, or arms with just a few treatments of SkinTyte™. If you want to turn back the clock on lax and sagging skin, but don’t necessarily want to undergo extensive surgery, SkinTyte is a great alternative for you. A SkinTyte treatment in Kirkland, Washington, is an effective and comfortable way to tighten, firm and lift your skin for a youthful appearance.
Based on the scientific principle of selective thermolysis, SkinTyte utilizes Sciton’s BBL pulsed light technology to deeply heat the skin, without harming the entire treated surface area. SkinTyte’s technique is used to improve skin texture and smoothness, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase jawline definition, and create a more youthful looking face, neck and upper chest. Although most patients seek this treatment for facial and neck rejuvenation, it can also improve skin laxity, stretch marks, and cellulite on other areas of the body.
SkinTyte at Partington Plastic Surgery and Laser Center is a brief and comfortable procedure without any required downtime. During treatment, the SkinTyte light is administered in rapid, but gentle pulses, which is repeated over the target area for optimal results. While the face and neck are treated within 45 minutes, actual time of the treatment depends on your desired target areas.
Generally, a series of 3-5 treatments are necessary, spaced three weeks apart. However, we will personalize your SkinTyte treatment plan based on the improvements you desire. We may even recommend a combination of another skin rejuvenation product to further improve your results.
After treatment, some patients may experience mild redness and warmth to the skin. Since SkinTyte is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime required and patients can resume their activities immediately.
Although SkinTyte isn’t a substitute for a facelift, noticeable immediate results are to be expected. Continued results are developed based on your series of treatment plan and your personal home skin care regime. The beauty of the SkinTyte procedure is that it allows your collagen to rebuild and strengthen your healthy, new skin. SkinTyte is recommended for patients who want moderate improvement without surgery.
