What Is SkinTyte?

SkinTyte is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to address skin laxity in various areas of the body, including the face, neck, above the knees, labial region, and hands. Using advanced infrared light technology, SkinTyte stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. This treatment offers a safe and effective solution for individuals seeking to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing surgery or experiencing downtime.

How Does SkinTyte Work?

SkinTyte utilizes advanced infrared light technology to target the dermal layer of the skin. The procedure delivers controlled pulses of light energy, which penetrate deeply into the tissue. This energy selectively heats the collagen fibers, causing them to contract and stimulate new collagen production over time.

As collagen remodels, it tightens the skin, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance. Additionally, the heat generated by the infrared light also promotes elastin production, further enhancing skin elasticity.

During the SkinTyte treatment, you’ll first be positioned comfortably. Protective eyewear may be provided to shield your eyes from the light energy. The technician will then apply a cooling gel to the treatment area. A handpiece emitting infrared light will be moved over your skin in a series of passes. You may feel a warming sensation as the energy targets the deeper layers of your skin. The procedure takes around 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the areas treated.


After SkinTyte treatment, you may experience mild redness or warmth in the treated area, but this typically subsides within a few hours. Some individuals report a sensation similar to a mild sunburn, which resolves quickly. There’s typically no downtime associated with SkinTyte, allowing you to return to your regular activities immediately. It’s recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect the treated area as your skin rejuvenates.

Recovery Guidelines

  • Apply a soothing moisturizer to the treated area as needed.
  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least a week post-treatment.
  • Use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from UV rays.
  • Refrain from vigorous exercise or activities that may cause excessive sweating.
  • Keep the treated area clean and avoid touching or picking at it.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to support skin healing.
  • Follow any additional post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider.


You’ll start noticing gradual improvements in skin tightness and texture within a few weeks following the SkinTyte treatment as collagen production increases. Optimal results typically appear after multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart. While individual results vary, the benefits of SkinTyte can last for up to a year or longer with proper skincare maintenance. Consistent follow-up treatments can help sustain and maximize the longevity of your results.
