What it can do for you
SkinTyte provides anti-aging effects that go beyond simply tightening the skin. It also:
- corrects discolouration in the skin
- diminishes fine lines
- increased firmness
Although it can be used on the face, the need to repeat treatments makes SkinTyte more suited to larger areas:
How it works
SkinTyte uses pulsed broadband light in the infra-red range to heat the collagen fibres in your deeper skin layers. The heat causes existing collagen to bond together and increases new collagen production, tightening the visible skin.
At the same time, laser pulses cool the surface layers of skin to keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Meeting your needs
It generally takes about 30 minutes to complete a SkinTyte treatment on the face and neck. Typically it takes multiple treatments, spaced a few weeks apart, to get the best results.
Since SkinTyte stimulates increased collagen, it will take several months for the full results to appear.
Dr. van Aardt only offers this treatment at Vitality Medi-Spa in Halifax.
