SkinTyteTM utilises advanced infrared light technology to smooth wrinkles and uneven skin, reversing the signs of ageing. It tightens and lifts the skin, giving you a younger appearance.
SkinTyteTM is most useful on the face to tighten the cheeks, reduce the nasolabial folds, and to tighten and lift skin along the jawline and in the neck. SkinTyteTM can also be used on the forehead to lift the eyebrows, and reduce excess skin on the eyelids.
SkinTyteTM can also be used to tighten loose skin anywhere on the body, such as the arms, abdomen and thighs.
SkinTyteTM lifts and tightens by heating collagen causing immediate collagen contraction, followed by progressive collagen remodelling and tightening over the 6 months following the treatment.
Skin laxity is caused by the natural aging process and sun damage. These processes cause collagen fibres to stretch and loosen like worn rubber bands, resulting in less elastic skin that eventually sags. The Thermage tackles this problem by delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the collagen rich layers of the skin where heat causes the immediate contraction and thickening of these fibres.
In addition to the immediate tightening of the skin, SkinTyteTM also stimulates the production of collagen over subsequent months. *The final result is a smoother, tighter, more toned look that occurs naturally, as opposed to fillers, muscle relaxants and physical alteration of the skin.
*About 90% of patients have visible results, with many patients seeing some results immediately. Even if you don’t see any visible results studies show that all patients have increased collagen in the skin, reducing the amount of sagging skin over the next two years, slowing down the ageing process.
* SkinTyteTM Treatments take 1-2 hours and you can return to work and normal everyday activities the next day.Dr Cope often combines SkinTyteTM with medical grade skin care and other laser treatments such as the Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treatments to provide an exceptional, holistic approach to skin rejuvenation.

SkinTyte lifts and tightens the skin by using advanced infrared light technology to heat the collagen in and under the skin, which gives an immediate tightening effect as well as stimulating collagen production after the treatment. The improvement continues for weeks to months after treatment, as continued collagen production and remodelling occurs.
Usually 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart are recommended, with the final result seen after 6 months. Many people have additional tightening treatments after a year to give continued improvement in skin laxity and wrinkles.
For the best result with SkinTyte no sun tanning or direct sun exposure should occur for 2-4 weeks prior to treatment, and apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or more to the treatment area. A medical grade skin care regime will prepare the skin for treatment, enhance treatment results and lower the risks of post-treatment complications.
Do not apply fake tan 1 week prior to treatment.
SkinTyte treatments give a warm sensation. You will not need topical local anaesthetic before the treatment, and most people manage without pain medications.
After the treatment, you need to rest and not exercise for 1-2 days, and avoid heat or sun exposure.
*You will experience mild redness or puffiness for a few hours after the treatment. *Some patients can return to routine activities (including work and social events) the same day, while some return to work the day after SkinTyteTM treatments.
It is important to wear sunscreen and avoid significant sun exposure for at least one month after SkinTyteTM treatments. Do not have any other treatments in the area for at least 2 weeks. Medical grade skin care both before and afterwards will also minimise this risk and help achieve the best possible result.
