As people age, the skin ages alongside, losing its natural collagen and elasticity. Loose skin can occur all over the body, but it is especially common in the face, neck, abdomen, and arms. So, it’s only natural to feel like you could use a little lift and wonder how to deal with skin laxity.
What if there was an option to firm your jawline, lift your cheeks, and restore youthful elasticity – without needles, surgery, and ZERO downtime?
Patients can now choose non-invasive skin firming treatments over more invasive surgical alternatives. Although not a substitute for surgical facelifts or tummy tucks, non-invasive skin firming treatments can produce noticeable results in troublesome lax skin on the face and body.
SkinTyte ™ is a non-invasive treatment option for skin laxity that stimulates the production of collagen, restoring youthful elasticity to the face and neck. This innovative treatment utilizes advanced infrared light energy to selectively heat the collagen deep within the skin while simultaneously cooling the outer layer of skin.
The infrared energy in Sciton’s SkinTyte ™ II heats the dermis and stimulates the fibroblasts to increase collagen production. Unlike radiofrequency skin firming devices which cause significant discomfort during treatment and can produce inconsistent results, treatments performed with Sciton’s SkinTyte ™ II, are comfortable and effective. SkinTyte ™ II delivers infrared energy with broadband light gently heating the dermis of the skin, triggering collagen remodeling which over time results in firmer skin.
Where can SkinTyte ™ be used?
SkinTyte ™ is effective on nearly any part of the body with skin laxity. Popular areas include the lower face and neck as well as around the eyes. SkinTyte works well on loose skin of the upper arms and abdomen. The front and back of legs and inner thighs are also favorites.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments are spaced every 2-4 weeks and a series of 4-6 is usually recommended. It takes time to stimulate and create new collagen!
