Skin that has lost elasticity and begun to droop can significantly age your appearance. However, the severity of your sagging may not necessitate a full surgical facelift. You might want to look like the best version of yourself, but you’re not ready to have a surgical procedure. At Grotting & Cohn Plastic Surgery, we have the right procedure for you. SkinTyte™ is a non-invasive skin tightening technique that will have you looking younger in no time.

Why Non-Invasive Treatments?

More patients choose to undergo non-invasive treatments like SkinTyte™ because of the short recovery period. Surgical procedures typically have a lengthy recovery timeline due to the sedation used during surgery and incision healing post-surgery. Instead, patients who choose non-invasive techniques can usually return to their regular activities the same day and begin to see their results within one to two weeks.

SkinTyte™ Candidates

Not every patient is a good candidate for the SkinTyte™ system, which promotes tissue contraction by heating the deep dermal collagen through laser energy and stimulating the natural healing process to create renewed collagen. Patients seeking SkinTyte™ should have mild to moderate amounts of skin sagging. Patients with more severe forms of sagging may be better suited for a facelift or neck lift procedure.

The SkinTyte™ procedure does not eliminate excess fat nor improve the contours of the face. However, it often follows liposuction of the neck to ensure a firmer appearance. If left untreated, the neck can appear loose and flabby following liposuction.

Wrinkle Reduction

SkinTyte™ patients may see some improvements to minor surface wrinkles, but this procedure fails to smooth more deeply etched ones. If you are looking for a firmer facial appearance that’s wrinkle-free, you should consider combining facial fillers or fat grafting to your face. Both techniques fill and smooth out unwanted wrinkles. Since they are also non-invasive, you don’t have to worry about any additional recovery time.

If you are looking to restore a firm, youthful appearance to your facial contour, it may be time to schedule your SkinTyte™ consultation. You can call our office at 205.930.1600 or contact us online.
