Skin Quality Makes A Difference

Surgical corrections can do wonders, but no facial rejuvenation is complete without addressing the quality of the skin. Surgery does not improve skin tone or texture, but laser treatments can. With Sciton Skintyte laser treatments, your skin can restore itself and help you look more youthful and refreshed.

What Is Skintyte?

Skintyte uses infrared laser heating technology to treat skin laxity, promoting tighter, smoother, more youthful skin. Skintyte is appropriate for use on any area of the body; it is most commonly used on the face and neck. Unlike traditional laser treatments, Skintyte causes little to no discomfort.

This is because cooling technology works in tandem with heat-generating lasers to keep the patient comfortable. In addition, the heat is concentrated subdermally only, meaning that the surface of your skin will not feel any painful prickling sensation.

How Does Skintyte Work?

SkinTyte uses short pulses of advanced infrared light to heat deep layers of the skin while cooling and protecting the skin’s surface. The short pulses of infrared energy stimulate the body’s healing process, which triggers the production of collagen. This newer collagen firms the skin and makes it appear younger and more supple. Typically, patients require a series of sessions spaced weeks apart to achieve desired results.

What is a Skintyte Session Like?

After settling into our deluxe medical spa, our care team will answer any lingering questions you may have. Once you are ready, we clean the target area and apply a special gel. Then, with a specially engineered handpiece, concentrated infrared energy will be administered to the area in rapid pulses. Most patients report a warm feeling. One session lasts for about an hour, and multiple sessions are typically recommended.

What Is Recovery From A Skintyte Session Like?

This is a non-invasive procedure that does not require topical numbing creams, and is perfect for those who are interested in a gentle yet effective way to firm their skin. It is normal for some patients to experience swelling or redness in the treatment areas.

This should subside within a few hours. Patients can return directly to work or other normal activities right after a session. Results are cumulative, meaning they continue to improve for up to six months after treatment is completed.
