Is SkinTyte™ Right for Me?

Posted March 9, 2016 in Non-Surgical Treatments, Skincare Treatments, SkinTyte™

Skincare TreatmentsLoose and mildly sagging skin can prevent you from achieving the toned and defined contours you desire. Your skin may be contributing to a flabby appearance, and it can significantly age your appearance. While correcting loose skin can dramatically improve your body’s contours, many people don’t need or want to undergo a surgical body contouring procedure. Luckily, new technologies are available to provide non-invasive, non-surgical treatments to correct loose and sagging skin. At Grotting & Cohn Plastic Surgery, we offer SkinTyte™ treatments to improve and restore more toned skin.

What Is SkinTyte™?

SkinTyte™ is a laser light treatment that tightens the skin. Broadband light energy heats dermal collagen, causing it to contract. The heating process also stimulates your body’s natural healing process, producing a new collagen foundation which contributes to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling at the skin’s surface ensures patient comfort and protects the skin. Over time, the new collagen will result in firmer, more toned skin.

What Can SkinTyte™ Treat?

SkinTyte™ is designed to treat sagging skin on multiple areas of the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Face
