Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty has consulted with many men and women throughout his career about loose skin. While surgical removal is the longer-lasting choice, Dr. Setty has several options to tighten the skin without surgery. When your body's supply of collagen and elastin are gone, your skin will not be firm nor elastic. What does that mean for your face? Skin laxity in the facial area may lead to loose neck skin, a double chin appearance, jowls, sunken cheeks, and/or fine lines and wrinkles. At Setty Plastics & Aesthetics, we have a wonderful technology called the SkinTyte by Sciton. With infrared light technology, SkinTyte will heal the layers of the dermis to initiate your body's natural healing response within the skin. New collagen will slowly form over several months and give your skin a firmer, more youthful appearance. We would love to have you come into our Allen, McKinney, or Dallas, TX locations to learn much more and have a consultation for SkinTyte with Dr. Setty.
"Liposuction - I had facetite and laser resurfacing around my eyes and on my upper lip. My neck was really bothering me with all the loose skin and facetite tightened my neck area enormously. I thought my only recourse was a neck lift. I can put this off for a couple of years because of my results. Also, I am very pleased with the results of the laser resurfacing-no crows feet and my upper lip looks much better-the lines are not as deep."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / May 08, 2019
"Tummy Tuck - Dr. Setty followed up with me the same day of my surgery, and answered all of my questions. I was very nervous, but Dr. Setty did a wonderful job on my tummy tuck. My scars are already healing after two months, and I was able to walk straight after three weeks. I had a full release to work out after eight weeks. I feel wonderful, look wonderful, and feel very confident. Dr. Setty is very attentive to all of his patients needs, and so is his wonderful staff!"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 22, 2019
"Breast Augmentation - I am highly satisfied with my breast augmentation because the whole experience, from first consultation to post care treatments is going as expected per Dr. Setty. I felt Dr. Setty took extra care to listen to exactly what I was looking for in size and he also asked for pictures of what I wish or may expect to look like after the procedure. The size is perfect and I feel greatly satisfied!"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 19, 2019
"Breast Reduction - My results are better than I imagined and Dr. Setty and his team treated me with much kindness and answered any questions I had with urgency. I had a consultation years ago with another doctor who made comments that made me feel uneasy. Dr. Setty’s spirit and professionalism put me at ease and made me feel extremely comfortable."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 10, 2019
"Mommy Makeover - Everyone in Dr. Setty’s office has been wonderful. From my first visit I felt very comfortable and informed. I am thrilled with my results. My results are above and beyond what I was hoping to achieve."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 09, 2019
As SkinTyte is really not made to accommodate large areas of the body, it is very suitable for the face and neck. Ideal candidates will have mild skin laxity. If you need to have a face or neck lift, your skin will not get the results it requires with SkinTyte. It is a better choice for patients with loose skin on the face and neck, mild wrinkles, and fine lines. With SkinTyte treatments, it is best to have realistic expectations as what it can do. Dr. Setty will discuss all of your options and your appropriateness for nonsurgical skin tightening in his office during a private consultation
Reclined comfortably in one of our treatment rooms, one of our medical aestheticians will cleanse your face and neck to prepare it for your SkinTyte session. We will also ask you to wear protective goggles to shield your eyes from the infrared light. Your experienced medical aesthetician will gently pass the light over your skin for about 45 minutes. Many patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the session except for when the heating sensation became too intense. We will have a topical cooling available to ease this response to the heat. Afterward, you will be free to go home and resume your normal routine.
What to Expect
If at any time during your SkinTyte session that your face feels too hot, please tell your aesthetician. The applied cooling gel can only do so much if the settings are set too high on the technology. After the SkinTyte treatment, you may be able to see some differences in your skin, but the greatest results will not be evident for at least 6 – 12 weeks as the collagen improves the skin. You can resume your routine activities. Remember, it is always healthy to wear sunscreen on your delicate skin anytime, especially after aesthetic treatments.
