What is SkinTyte™?
Part of the world-renowned line of Sciton® lasers, SkinTyte™ is a sophisticated skin tightening treatment that harnesses the power of infrared energy and broad based light (BBL) techniques to tone and firm the skin on nearly any area of the body. This procedure can be used on all skin types, brings about excellent results, and features virtually no downtime.
How Does it Work?
SkinTyte™ works by delivering a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses of infrared light over the selected treatment area. This light passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and penetrates deep into the dermis. Once the light has entered the dermis, the treatment works in two phases: it first heats collagen in the upper, middle, and deep dermis, and then causes collagen bonds to contract and soft tissue to coagulate. Over time, this leads to collagen remodeling and the toning and tightening of the skin.
What are the Benefits of SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ has a wide variety of unique benefits unmatched by many other skin firming treatments. It can target nearly any area of the body, with the most popular treatment areas including the face, neck, abdomen, knees, thighs, buttocks and arms.
