What It Is
SkinTyte is a revolutionary body sculpting treatment that combines pulsed light technology and selective thermolysis to target loose and sagging skin without causing any harm. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive skin-tightening procedure that is guaranteed safe and effective and works for almost every problem area in the body. SkinTyte II should definitely be your next anti-ageing or post-pregnancy body beautiful secret. Here are more reasons to book your SkinTyte II Oakville treatment now.
Typically, the skin loses its firmness and elasticity as a natural effect of ageing due to suboptimal collagen and elastin production. It also happens when a person loses a lot of weight dramatically rapidly in a short amount of time, for instance, after giving birth.
SkinTyte II Oakville can restore your skin’s firmness and can efficiently target flabby, sagging skin in multiple areas of the face and body, including:
Aside from its amazing skin-tightening benefits, SkinTyte II is also in treating hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne scars, lentigo (small brown patches on the skin due to aging), and erythema (a skin inflammation that causes redness).
Because of its safety and gentleness on the skin, SkinTyte II Oakville can also be used as a complementary treatment for BOTOX, collagen injections, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and microdermabrasion. It is also an excellent follow-up treatment after liposuction and before or after you undergo a facelift or a neck lift.
How to Prepare
SkinTyte II is a simple and no-fuss in-office procedure that should last no more than 60 minutes, depending on your case.
It does not really require any major preparation on your end. But before coming into the office, we recommend that you skip putting on makeup or moisturizer. Men will be advised to shave before their appointment.
Inform your doctor of any skin infection, wound, breakout, blister, or sore that appear before the treatment. Your doctor may decide to postpone your SkinTyte II Oakville procedure until your the infection or your skin has totally cleared up. This is an important proactive measure to avoid any risk of complication.
How It Works
SkinTyte II works by taking advantage of advanced infrared light technology to penetrate h2layers of the skin and safely heat up dermal collagen. This heating process triggers the body’s natural healing process and restores the collagen foundation of the skin. With an abundant supply of collagen, the skin becomes firmer, tighter, and more radiant than ever. On the other hand, the cooling element during the procedure keeps SkinTyte II Oakville treatment safe, pain-free, and comfortable for the patient.
Before the procedure, your doctor will ask you to wear protective goggles to shield the eyes and avoid optical injuries. Typically, it will be performed without anesthesia, but if you are extremely sensitive to pain, your doctor may apply a soothing gel to make the treatment more manageable for you.
SkinTyte II Oakville treatment involves a series of exposing the target areas to pulsed infrared light energy. It is an in-office treatment that can take 30 to 45 minutes per area. Your doctor may recommend two to five sessions with an interval of three to four weeks.
Results You Can Expect
SkinTyte II Oakville may vary. They can be gradual or dramatic improvements that become most obvious within four to six months of post-treatment.
Aftercare and Recovery
SkinTyte II Oakville promises a fast, efficient treatment without the downtime. However, some patients may experience some discomfort depending on their sensitivity. There may be a little swelling for some. Women can immediately start wearing makeup again the next day as long as there is no skin reaction, such as redness or blistering.
Post-treatment reactions are rare, but here are some practical aftercare tips to do if you experience it:
- Apply a cold compress for a soothing effect
- Avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week after
- Wear sunscreen or protective clothing if you must go outdoors
- Avoid shaving
- Do not use heavily scented soaps, lotions, or moisturizers
Discuss recovery and aftercare with your doctor for a more personalized recommendation.
