Is SkinTyte™ Treatment Right For Me?

The SkinTyte™ Laser is an innovative treatment that helps tighten skin by triggering collagen production, leaving behind refreshed, younger-looking skin. This laser treatment is an excellent solution for patients who suffer from skin laxity issues in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • And more!

If there’s a part of your body where you feel like your skin could be tighter and firmer, the SkinTyte™ Laser treatment can help!

The Procedure

SkinTyte™ delivers infrared heat energy to the deepest layers of the dermis, encouraging soft tissue to contract and tighten for near-instant results. Additionally, the heat energy helps stimulate prolonged collagen production, for long-lasting results.

The procedure can also be used to target darker pigment on the skin, as the laser energy is absorbed by these spots. Over time, the darker pigment is broken down and absorbed by the body, leaving behind glowing, beautiful skin!

The treatment itself takes about 45 minutes. During the procedure, you may feel a mild heating sensation where the handpiece makes contact with the skin.

The SkinTyte™ laser treatment is safe for all skin types and tones.


There’s no downtime associated with the SkinTyte™ treatment; patients can continue with their normal routines as soon as the treatment is finished. Patients should expect some mild heating sensations during the treatment, but no other side effects.

Results are almost immediate, thanks to the treatment’s instant skin-tightening effects. Optimal results can be seen two to three months after the initial treatment. Patients can opt for multiple SkinTyte™ treatments at once in order to see faster results.
