Sagging skin can be one of the secret dilemmas most people of age have. Some who have experienced a great deal of weight loss also suffer from this after shedding unwanted fat. While there are many solutions being offered in the market today such as anti-aging creams and dermal injections, it is important to know first what causes the skin to sag in order to know what’s the best way to treat it.
Skin sag due to the absence of volume that used to fill it from under the skin. Most of the time it is a great deal of fat or muscles that occupy the layers under the skin, even making skin stretch to adjust to excess fat or bulging muscles. However, when you lose these, your skin could only snap back to the same level of tightness up to a certain degree thus skin sagging is really unavoidable.
The skin of younger people may be able to adjust quickly to body changes due to the production rate of collagen and elastin under the skin. Collagen and elastin can be found in a layer that lies below the epidermis and epidermis. It is these two that make our skin look supple and younger-looking. It provides the skin the ability to snap back to position when pinched which is what is usually not the case for aging, sagging skin. Heredity and aging as well as the skin’s exposure to UV rays can be major causes of skin sagging. When we age, our body’s ability to naturally produce collagen slows down, making our skin look saggy and wrinkly.
This is why a common practice in the aesthetic industry is to come up with treatments and procedures designed to stimulate and speed up the growth of collagen and elastin under the skin regardless of age.

In a nutshell, Skin Tyte makes use of infrared energy to heat up the collagen under the skin. Collagen when heated up triggers partial denaturation which in turn makes the collagen contract. This technology also takes advantage of the body’s reaction and ability to heal itself thru the introduction of heat. When heat triggers the healing ability of the body produces a renewed collagen and elastin layer which in turn makes the skin look firmer. The SkinTyte applicator surface, which will be in contact with the skin, maintains a cooling system that allows the patient to feel comfortable and safe throughout the procedure. A gel will be applied on the surface of the skin, like how ultrasound is done, and different applicators of different sizes to cover different areas will be used to heat up and cool the skin and layers underneath it in succession.
The laser in Skin Tyte treatment is used in a form of measured, rapid but gentle pulses set to target layers under the skin. It alternatively heats the skin and cools it with the level of heat and cold based on the patient’s tolerance. This is how the skin is protected to avoid burns or any swelling due to excessive heat or excessive cold.

Pulse light will be simultaneously emitted to areas being treated in repetition to ensure the optimum results. The length of time spent on treatment will solely be based on the area being treated.
