What is SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ by Sciton is a non-invasive technique for skin rejuvenation. The treatment is designed to tighten skin, improve skin texture, and provide an overall aesthetic enhancement. By sending infrared energy to the target area, patients can often improve aging concerns such as wrinkles and loose skin. SkinTyte™ has a very high satisfaction rate, with patients raving about their youthful results. The treatment can also be combined with other treatments, such as IPL and Forever Young BBL™, for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
How does SkinTyte™ work?
SkinTyte™ works by sending short pulses of infrared energy to the target area, which heats deep into the skin. As it warms the dermal layer, collagen contracts stimulating the body’s natural healing process which causes a new layer of collagen to form. As the skin heals itself from the inside out, you can begin to notice a firmer, more youthful complexion.
Who is a good candidate for SkinTyte™?
Those interested in moderate skin tightening and improvement without surgery are typically good candidates for SkinTyte™. The technology is considered safe for all skin types, and can be customized to each patient’s needs for the most effective treatment.
What areas can be treated with SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ can treat virtually any area of the body where you want to see improvement. Common areas addressed with SkinTyte™ technology include the face, neck, chest, arms, abdomen, and legs. Since the face tends to be one of the first places to show signs of aging, our patients often utilize SkinTyte™ to address concerns such as forehead lines, jowls, a loose jawline, a sagging undereye area, and nasolabial folds. Multiple adapters are available to customize the treatment according to the size of each target area.
What can I expect during the SkinTyte™ treatment?
As the SkinTyte™ treatment begins, rapid pulses of gentle heat are sent to the area. As this process continues, contact cooling is activated to lower the temperature of the area, ensuring the surrounding tissue is not damaged. This cooling feature adjusts throughout treatment to maintain a comfortable temperature. The entire process takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, but this will vary based on how many areas need treatment.
SkinTyte™ comes with different magnetic Finesse Adaptors, which can be adjusted to address big or little spots for a more efficient treatment process. To achieve optimal results, Dr. Reinertson typically recommends patients undergo multiple treatment sessions spaced a few weeks apart. No downtime is needed after each SkinTyte™ session, allowing you to return to your normal activities without delay.
Does the SkinTyte™ treatment hurt?
No, the SkinTyte™ treatment should not hurt. As the technology delivers heat to the area, the device also cools the skin to ensure the surrounding area is not affected and that you remain comfortable. Patients typically report minimal discomfort throughout their process. As a result, there is no need for an anesthetic. However, you can choose to receive a topical numbing cream if you would like to limit any potential sensitivity during the treatment.
When will I see my SkinTyte™ results?
Many patients can begin to see improvement immediately after treatment. This tightening effect will continue to improve over the course of several months as the collagen gradually rebuilds. For further improvement, you can schedule additional treatment sessions.
