Age and life experience often contribute to women feeling dissatisfied with their bodies. This includes even intimate areas. As we age, the skin loses elasticity which causes laxity of the labia and vulva. While many women feel unhappy with the appearance of this area after childbirth or menopause, more women are affected by the tearing and discomfort caused by this looser skin. SkinTyte™️ can help. Here we will answer your SkinTyte™️ FAQs.

1. Who Is a Good Candidate for SkinTyte?

There are two main reasons women seek treatment. First, women who have experienced vaginal childbirth may have stretching of the muscles and skin of the vagina, which can mean laxity and looseness of the skin surrounding the vaginal opening. Recovery after childbirth happens over time, but some tissue may not ever fully regain its pre-delivery firmness and appearance. Second, for women going through menopause or early menopause, a loss of collagen and drop in estrogen causes sagging and aging of the skin. SkinTyte™ helps treat these conditions. Additionally, women who are simply unhappy with the appearance of their labia, for whatever reason, may be good candidates for the  SkinTyte™.

2. Why Do Women Get the SkinTyte™ Treatment?

After childbirth, menopause or simply because of aging, women may feel the skin in their vaginal area has lost some of its youthful appearance and function. There are also women who experience painful intercourse because of their loose labial skin. Unfortunately, being self-conscious about their appearance can impact intimacy and self-confidence. It can also put a strain on intimate relationships. First and foremost, women deserve to be in control of their bodies, their appearance and their sexuality. SkinTyte™ is a quick procedure and a simple solution to these intimate physical concerns.

3. How Does diVaTyte™ Treatment Work?

Laser therapy with SkinTyte™ uses BBL™ (Broadband Light) technology. This trusted, non-ablative treatment is also used for firming skin on the face, neck and abdomen. SkinTyte’s™ targeted infrared energy heats the collagen and elastin structures in the deep layers of tissue beneath the skin’s surface. The heat stimulates the growth of new tissue. As the structures rebuild, they increase tone, tightening and firmness below the surface and create visibly smoother and firmer skin at the surface.

4. What Should I Expect during the SkinTyte™ Treatment?

SkinTyte™ delivers laser energy with rapid pulses of light and heat that warm the skin and penetrate the deeper tissue layers of the labia/vulva. Treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes. The painless, non-invasive procedure uses surface cooling to protect the top layer of skin and to maintain comfort and safety. Most patients experience no pain or discomfort. Because the treatment is non-ablative, SkinTyte™ is safe for all skin colors.

5. What Should I Expect Immediately after a SkinTyte™ Treatment?

Some patients experience mild redness in the treatment area, but any flushed skin should fade to a normal coloration within an hour. The treatment can also initially cause slight swelling as the tissue begins to recover and rebuild. Both minor side effects are normal. Often, you don’t see results immediately – it takes time for the deeper tissue structures to rebuild.

6. What Care Will You Need Post- SkinTyte™ Treatment?

Because SkinTyte™ is non-invasive, you can resume normal activities immediately. You will not need any special recovery treatment. Talk to your provider about any concerns about your aftercare.

7. How Many SkinTyte™ Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments will vary according to your current condition and your goals. Typical treatment plans include 5 treatments spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart.

8. What Results Can I Expect after My Full Course of SkinTyte™ Treatments?

Each person is going to have different goals and results based on their own body. SkinTyte™ treatment is extremely effective for women who desire mild to moderate levels of noticeable improvement in their labial skin without invasive surgery. Full SkinTyte™ results can take up to four months as tissue rebuilds and the skin tightens following treatments.  Before treatment, your provider will give you an assessment and discuss your expected outcome based on your examination and goals.

9. How Long Will SkinTyte™ Results Last?

Once treatments are completed and the full effects have been realized, the new tissue will begin to age gradually with the body. If after a time you feel your results have been diminished, additional “tune-up” treatments are safe and effective.
