How Long Should I Wait for a Photofacial After a Skintyte Treatment?

Doctor Answers 4


Usually a 4-8 week time frame is long to reassess your skin and capacity for another treatment.  Have an evaluation with a Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and devise a plan.

SkinTyte and photofacials/BBL

I commonly use Skintyte in teh same setting as a photofacial or BBL.  Skintyte when performed correctly heats and tightens deeper layers in the skin while a BBL treatment or photofacial is a more superficial nonablative resurfacing.


All the best,

Skintyte and Photofacial treatment can be done together

Skintyte is an infrared technology used to tighten the skin. The non-invasive nature of this technology makes it possible to have both a Photofacial and a Skintyte treatment at the same time or very close together. We often times have patients who prefer to do both treatments at the same time in our office and they are very pleased with the results. Some offices may prefer to do the treatments separately and for this reason I would suggest consulting with your administering practitioner to see what they would suggest.

Some physicians combine these modalities on the same visit.

Skintyte is a pretty modest treatment.  It does not cause skin break down.  For this reason, it is possible to combine treatment modalities.  Bottom line, let your treating physician make the call.
