As we age, our skin gradually loses its firm and youthful appearance.
The natural ageing process combined with sun exposure, environmental stressors, weight changes and poor skincare can result in a reduction of the quality, strength and elasticity of the collagen within our skin. Over time, the skin becomes lax, saggy with wrinkles, folds and loss of its luminosity.
Skin laxity is a common complaint and can be difficult to treat. It can be improved with the use of non-invasive, energy-based technologies such as the unique BBL SkinTyte II technology. With this technology, it is possible to promote new, healthy collagen which results in skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
Tight, firm skin requires good elasticity. Elasticity means the ability of the skin to snap back or tighten after it has been displaced or pulled away from the body. Good elasticity depends on healthy collagen and elastin fibres, that lies very deep within the skin.
Collagen and elastin fibres act like small rubber bands that hold the skin tight against our body and pull the loose tissue back when it is stretched or pulled.
The SkinTyte II is a unique and advanced skin tightening system. The SkinTyte II utilises infrared energy with fast-paced broadband light to effectively induce the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. This is executed through heating the tissues to initiate a healing response within the skin. The end result is skin that is healthier, firmer and younger in appearance.
The effects of the SkinTyte II treatment are an immediate tightening due to thermal exposure, resulting in a contraction of existing collagen and elastin fibres.
Longer-term, cells are stimulated which will assist in producing new collagen, elastin and other components within the skin. This can occur for up to 6 months after the initial treatment. This skin remodelling process results in a thickening of the skin and the shrinking of the elastin fibres, resulting in improvement of skin firmness.
SkinTyte II uses our popular BBL platform, and can be combined with BBL rejuvenation treatments for optimal results.
The treatment can target all aspects of the ageing process, from the deep layers of the skin through to surface irregularities, pigmentation and redness.
SkinTyte II is safe to use on all skin types and all areas of the body that may be sagging or experiencing laxity such as:
- Jawline and jowls
We recommend 3 treatment sessions every 4 weeks for an initial course, followed by maintenance sessions to balance the natural decline in the body’s collagen and elastin fibres.
