What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte is an innovative skin tightening and firming treatment that uses the power of broadband light to boost collagen production and provide natural-looking results. The infrared light pulses that are applied through the Sciton SkinTyte system gently heat the skin’s deeper layers to promote the natural healing process of the skin, which helps create a new collagen layer.
What areas can be treated?
Skintyte can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin tightness and firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck and abdomen.
How long will it take my skin to heal?
This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with no downtime. Your skin will be slightly red or pink following the treatment. This will subside after about 20-30 minutes. You can return to work, apply makeup, and resume your activities immediately. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen.
What can the patient expect during a treatment?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic cream. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, most patients will need 5 treatments approximately 3-4 weeks apart.
How long does it take to see results?
Visible results may not be seen until after the second or third treatment. The full extent of improvement may take up to four months to see.
