Who Can Benefit from Sciton® SkinTyte™?

The SkinTyte™ treatment is great for those with all skin types and can be used on almost any area of the body.

The Sciton® SkinTyte™ Procedure

During treatment, you will be asked to wear special eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light, and a cooling gel will be applied to the treatment area. Then, the Sciton® SkinTyte*™ handpiece will be moved across the skin to deliver infrared light, stimulating collagen and elastin. This technology is equipped with sapphire contact cooling to ensure that you are comfortable during treatment. There is no need for an anesthetic, as SkinTyte™ delivers gentle, yet rapid pulses for optimal results. One treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to complete, and most people require 3-6 treatments over the course of several months for the best results.  

Sciton® SkinTyte™ Results

Mild redness may be experienced right after treatment, though this will resolve with time. There is no downtime required, so you can feel free to return to your daily routine as soon as you wish. While some improvement may be noticeable immediately after treatment, your skin will gradually become tighter and firmer over the following months as your skin’s foundation of collagen builds up.
