As collagen and elastin production decreases with age, we experience skin laxity, which can contribute to an aged appearance. Thankfully there are non-ablative, non-surgical options for firming lax skin.
WHAT IT DOES
At SkinStudioMD, we are pleased to offer SkinTyte™ by Sciton for skin firming. SkinTyte™ treatments are safe for all skin colours and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen and arms.
This treatment is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without surgery. Full results often take up to four months, as the collagen foundation is rebuilt and strengthened.
HOW IT WORKS
The SkinTyte™ procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. The heat initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of the skin at a cool temperature before, during and after each pulse for maximum comfort.
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
The SkinTyte™ light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for topical anaesthetic, however it may be suggested for more sensitive areas. A series of pulses are repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results.
While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, treatment time will depend on the area treated.
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately following this procedure, which should return to normal within minutes. This is a non-invasive treatment with no associated downtime. Most activities can be resumed immediately.
The number of treatments required will depend on your skin and the level of improvement you desire. We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
