What to Expect
You may notice immediate improvement in the tightness of your skin and results will gradually become even more noticeable over a four to six month period. New collagen is generated following treatment, and results may last for up to two years depending on the natural aging process. Skin tightening of the abdomen area should neither be considered a solution for obesity nor a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.
Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery Patient Comments
I recently had a complete Thermage treatment on my face, which included the eyes and neck. Although I experienced a split second of discomfort on certain areas of my face the overall experience was very pleasant for me. I feel the up-to-date equipment had a lot to do with an easier treatment plus the staff being very personable and patient. I would encourage anyone to consider this treatment. I have experienced good results in the past. It’s worth the investment!
Dr. Hotchandani and staff gave my life back to me. I feel beautiful not only on the outside, but also beautiful on the inside too. My self-esteem is now 100% and I am sooo excited to enjoy every day as my new person. I catch my husband looking at me with a twinkle in his eye. Now, does it get any better than that! My procedures included Botox, Thermage, and Radiesse. Believe me, their procedure and professionalism were worth every penny. How does one put a dollar sign on how one looks and feels. I took a chance. I’m grateful for a new beginning!
How Does it Work?
The SkinTyte™ system is used to deliver a series of rapid, gentle pulses of a broadband infrared light energy to deeply heat the dermis. This causes a partial denaturation and contraction of collagen and prompts the body’s natural healing response to generate a renewed collagen foundation. An integral thermo-electric cooler maintains a comfortable temperature for the epidermis during and after treatment.
SkinTyte™ procedures for the face and neck are typically completed within 30 minutes. Treatment regimens may require three to five treatments spaced three to five weeks apart. You will feel a brief, heat sensation when pulses of energy are delivered, but clients typically do not request a topical anesthetic though one is made available.
You may return to normal activities immediately after skin tightening treatment sessions, and any slight redness or minor swelling should dissipate within a day or two.
What are the characteristics of a good candidate for skin tightening?
Those seeking tighter, firmer, and more youthful looking skin who do not want to undergo surgery are good candidates for non-invasive skin tightening procedures. While SkinTyte™ is not a perfect substitute for facelifts or other cosmetic surgeries, it can provide moderate, noticeable improvement in saggy or loose skin without the downtime.
Is treatment painful?
Most patients find skin tightening comfortable, and most clients undergo treatment without the aid of a topical anesthetic. If your pain threshold is very low, a topical anesthetic will be applied before the procedure for added comfort.
What is the recovery time I should expect?
You may resume normal activities right away – there is no downtime. Mild redness on the treated area should return to normal within minutes for SkinTyte™.
How can I improve and maintain results?
You should try to avoid direct sun exposure and always use a protective sunscreen. Your Hotchandani Laser, Vein and Cosmetic Surgery professional can recommend a home skin care regimen that will help keep your skin tight for years to come.
Is skin tightening treatment safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There have been no reported short or long-term side effects with SkinTyte™.
