SkinTyte by Sciton
Sagging skin, wrinkles and folds are some of the most common skin concerns that exist. Hundreds of thousands of individuals- both men and women- turn to cosmetic treatment every year to reverse some of the damage that time has caused, but there are many of us that are hesitant to sign up for invasive procedures that require downtime and recovery.
Luckily, SkinTyte is available to everyone — regardless of skin type or tone — who is looking for a noninvasive way to improve fine lines, wrinkles, folds and saggy skin throughout the entire body.
What Is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of loose skin in unwanted areas throughout the body. It is part of the Sciton BroadBand Light system, making it highly reliable and versatile in an overall aesthetic treatment plan. It has soared in popularity because of the results it can provide with minimal pain, discomfort and downtime — a perfect solution for someone with a busy schedule or active lifestyle.
SkinTyte is also notorious for its ability to treat a range of different body parts, whereas other options focus exclusively on single points.
How Does SkinTyte Work?
SkinTyte uses targeted infrared light to heat collagen deep within the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process. When the body repairs the “damaged” tissue, it floods the area with a rich concentration of essential proteins like collagen and other healing factors. These substances are directly responsible for keeping skin taut and youthful, so boosting them can cause a dramatic improvement in the appearance of sagging tissue.
The SkinTyte system also uses a standard sapphire contact cooling technique that comes standard in the BBL platform. By cooling the top layer of skin when heating the underlying layers of tissue, more aggressive treatment can be performed without damaging the outer layer of skin. This technique reduces recovery time and side effects from the treatment.
What Can SkinTyte Treat?
SkinTyte is designed to significantly improve the appearance of sagging skin throughout the body, including areas like the face, neck, stomach, hands and many others. It is essential to understand that SkinTyte can help improve any skin ptosis concern, but it is most effective on mild to moderate conditions. Since it is noninvasive, it can be used virtually anywhere by a medical professional who is extensively trained and experienced like those at Terrasse Aesthetic Surgery & ERASE MediSpa.
What Are the Benefits of SkinTyte?
Here are a few of the reasons that people turn to SkinTyte treatment:
- It provides tangible results that are noticeable and impactful
- It can be used on any skin type or tone
- It is virtually painless thanks to the sapphire cooling system
- It can address one or more areas of the body, sometimes even in a single treatment
- It is fast — many patients can be in and out within a lunch break
- It is accurate and precise, meaning better focus on the areas you care about
- Nonsurgical and noninvasive means no lengthy recovery or downtime
- It can be combined with other procedures when developing an effective treatment plan
What Results Can SkinTyte Provide?
SkinTyte provides a noticeable improvement to skin ptosis wherever it is performed on the body. It is typically recommended that anywhere between three and six sessions be performed within three months. Your sessions will need to be spaced out two to four weeks apart, though, so you will need to work with your medical professional at our office to figure out an effective treatment plan.
While some patients are able to notice a difference after the first session, achieving impactful results can take anywhere between three and four sessions. By the four-month period, you will begin to see a substantial improvement in your skin sagging as collagen production ramps up and your skin becomes tauter.
What Can I Expect from SkinTyte Recovery?
There is virtually no recovery needed after a SkinTyte procedure since the system prevents damage to the outer layer of skin. Despite that fact, however, we do ask that our patients avoid excessive sun exposure or other irritants both before and after their procedure day. This helps to minimize unnecessary pain and discomfort and maximize the type of results we can achieve.
