New advances in light energy have led to the development of a non-invasive treatment for skin laxity known as SkinTyte. Treatment is a comfortable, effective and affordable way to firm, tighten, and lift your skin to give you a more youthful appearance. The Skin Tyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. It is safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck and abdomen.
The treatment is based on the scientific principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes Sciton's BBL pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. Essentially, light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, actual time will depend on the area treated. Skin Tyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart is typical of most patients. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
