Enjoy a Skin Firming Treatment in Madison, WI
Radiance Skin Therapy utilizes SkinTyte™ for Madison-area clients who find that “anti-aging creams” just aren’t enough. As we age, collagen levels decrease, leading to looser skin that can stretch as gravity pulls it down. This can create the appearance of lines, creases, and wrinkles, as well as visible sagging. Tightening this aged skin can “turn back the clock,” but skincare regimens at home may not do enough to make a visible change—especially if the sagging or wrinkles are more dramatic. To truly see a difference, you need new collagen.
SkinTyte™ firms and tightens the skin without surgery, and with no downtime required. The device works by stimulating collagen production with heat, causing deep skin firming. The result is healthier, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
How Does SkinTyte™ Work?
First, a quick explanation of collagen: Plentiful collagen is a major reason youthful skin looks smooth and maintains its structure. The protein molecules break down and are replaced in an ongoing cycle. Unfortunately, that cycle starts to slow after we reach our 20s. Eventually, we lose more collagen than we make, which leads to thinner skin, less structural support, and more visible wrinkles.
The SkinTyte™ device sends infrared light into the skin, which creates heat below the surface. This heat triggers a healing response that includes cells producing new collagen molecules. This collagen makes the skin thicker, creates new support, and smooths out lines, almost like adding fresh air to a balloon that has deflated a bit over time.
Collagen production is gradual, with results improving in the weeks after a SkinTyte™ session. An ideal look is often achieved after about four months, with about three to six treatments spaced a few weeks apart.
The treated skin may appear pink after a SkinTyte™ session, but this coloring should fade within an hour. No special post-treatment care is required, though the Radiance Skin Therapy team always encourages everyone to wear properly applied sunscreen to any skin that will be exposed to the UV radiation in sunlight. This is especially important after a SkinTyte™ treatment.
