Our team utilizes ultrasound and radio-frequency technology to achieve optimal results. Trust The Skin Retreat to provide you with the latest advancements in skin tightening procedures for a sculpted and defined appearance.
How it Works
Our BBL SkinTyte procedure uses advanced infrared light to deeply heat and cool the skin’s surface, promoting increased skin firmness. Halo, the world’s only hybrid fractional laser, treats superficial and deep skin layers, stimulating collagen and elastin production. With an average downtime of 5-7 days, the initial redness fades and skin sloughs, improving skin appearance. The Professional laser, a fractured resurfacing laser, requires less downtime.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
– SCITON “PROFRACTIONAL” Laser: This laser is particularly effective for addressing loose skin around the eyes, face, and neck. It utilizes a “fractured” resurfacing technique.
– BBL SKINTYTE: As we age, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity, which can make us look older. SkinTyte can help combat the effects of aging and gravity.
– Halo: This is a unique hybrid fractional laser that combines both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths. It provides an unrivaled improvement in the visible signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, pore size, scars, and laxity.
Skin Tightening vs. Other Laser Technologies
Compared to other laser technologies, skin tightening uses a unique wavelength of light that targets the deeper layers of skin, stimulating collagen production to create a firmer and more youthful appearance. While other laser treatments may offer effective results for specific skin concerns, if you’re seeking overall skin rejuvenation and a more youthful appearance, skin tightening may just be the way to go.
