Skin Tightening Denver

Shedding light on innovative skin tightening technologies available in Denver area

Light is radiant energy that produces the illumination we need for sight. Not all light is visible, though. Infrared light waves are in the 430 THz to 300 GHz frequency. They are invisible, but create thermal radiation (warmth) that is absorbed by molecules in objects near the infrared light. Dr. Joel Cohen of AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery, PC explains how this concept is applied to skin tightening, to help women and men in the Denver area look more youthful.

When skin begins to lose lift

Collagen is a tough protein occurring naturally in the human body. It is an integral part of connective tissues like ligaments, tendons, and bone. Collagen also provides a substructure necessary for firm, vital skin. Over time skin becomes lax as our bodies produce less collagen and existing stores of it break down from sun exposure and environmental damage. Patients typically reach a stage in their late 30s to early 40s when topical skin care products no longer effectively address skin laxity . . . but they aren’t ready to commit to facelift surgery.

Putting surgical facelift on hold with SkinTyte

SkinTyte is an FDA cleared device manufactured by Sciton, a well known name in laser and light technologies. SkinTyte firms and lifts skin based on the concept of tissue heating. Pulses of infrared light are delivered to deep skin layers. This safe, controlled “injury” triggers the body’s repair response – soft tissue coagulation and collagen production. Proprietary sapphire contact cooling technology maintains safe, comfortable surface temperature during treatment.

SkinTyte is typically well tolerated with no need for topical anesthetic. Face and neck sessions are relatively brief, and there’s no downtime; you may return to work or other activities right away. As collagen regeneration takes place over the course of several months, skin becomes thicker and firmer, with noticeable lift. Usually three to five sessions are recommended for optimal skin tightening. Most patients are so pleased with the results of SkinTyte that they schedule touch up sessions periodically.

SkinTyte as part of a comprehensive rejuvenation regimen including high quality skin care products, resurfacing therapies, injectable neuromodulators, and dermal fillers can postpone the need for surgical intervention indefinitely.

Firmer skin with youthful lift doesn’t have to mean surgery with its associated risks and extended recovery period. Call 303.756.SKIN (7546) today to schedule a consultation at AboutSkin’s South Denver-Englewood or Lone Tree offices.
