Skin Tightening Q & A

Clinical Skin Therapeutics

What is laser skin tightening?

With advances in laser therapy, you can now opt for laser skin tightening to firm up loose, sagging skin. Treatment involves pulsed light energy to boost your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. This procedure can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.

Laser skin tightening is safe for all skin types and can treat virtually any area where you desire increased skin firmness. Common treatment areas include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Stomach
  • Arms

How does laser skin tightening work?

Clinical Skin Therapeutics uses the SkinTyte II™ treatment system by Sciton®.

SkinTyte II laser skin tightening procedures use targeted infrared energy to heat and stimulate collagen in your skin. This heating process boosts your skin’s natural healing processes, which helps create a new foundation of collagen. New collagen production leads to improved skin firmness and tone.

SkinTyte II’s powerful cooling feature maintains a cool temperature on the outer layer of your skin during the procedure. This makes treatment comfortable and safe without the use of a topical anesthetic. However, in some cases, your provider may elect to use a topical anesthetic for more sensitive treatment areas.

The laser energy is administered in a series of rapid pulses. Multiple treatments are recommended to achieve optimal skin tightening results. A single treatment session usually takes 30 minutes. The number of treatment sessions you need depends on the condition and size of the treatment area, as well as desired results.

What can I expect after laser skin tightening treatment?

After laser skin tightening treatment, it’s not uncommon to notice mild redness around the treatment area. This should subside quickly, so if you notice prolonged pain, swelling, or redness, contact Clinical Skin Therapeutics.

SkinTyte II treatment is noninvasive, so there’s no downtime involved. You can receive treatment and resume your normal routine right away, including applying lotions, makeup, and sunscreen to your skin.

What kind of results can I expect from laser skin tightening?

You can expect noticeable skin improvement and increased firmness without surgery. Typically, laser skin tightening procedures achieve peak results after about four months, since it takes time for your body to produce the new collagen that revitalizes and tightens loose skin.
