SkinTyte II’s treatments use selective thermolysis. That is, the procedure uses infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. More specifically, it deeply penetrates and heats one’s skin with pulsed light keeping the entire treated area protected.
Stated another way, SkinTyte II deeply heats dermal collagen while continuously protecting other treated epidermis with sapphire contact cooling for optimal clinical results, safety, and comfort. There is no need for an anesthetic of any kind as the energy is delivered in rapid gentle pulses to promote contraction and partial coagulation of the collagen. This initiates the body’s natural healing process that leads to increased tissue firming. This is all done rapidly and comfortably with no loss of time for the patient. The end result is a pain-free youthful appearance.
SkinTyte II employs a large 15 x 45 mm spot treatment size and its rapid repetition rate allows practitioners to drastically reduce treatment time. In addition, practitioners can easily and quickly treat small areas with the magnetic Finesse Adapters that are available in three convenient sizes: 15 x 15 mm square and 11 mm and 7 mm round. SkinTyte II also has an integrated thermoelectric monitoring assembly that enables its sensors, including its sapphire crystal assembly, to constantly and precisely maintain temperatures from 0 °C – 30 °C. This temperature range is adjustable between every degree and patients will maintain high comfort levels throughout the treatment. During this heating process, the skin is kept at a cool temperature at all times with powerful cooling.
