How Does Tissue Tightening Work Using SkinTyte?
The laser (the Sciton SkinTyte System) delivers infrared light deep into the dermis. This light causes soft tissue coagulation, which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis. Over time, this remodeled collagen helps to fill in wrinkles and restore elasticity to sagging skin. The SkinTyte System is the most advanced tissue-tightening device on the market today.
Are These Treatments Safe? Are they Painful?
The technology we use is much safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of many other systems, such as Thermage, because it leaves so much of the skin unaffected by the light pulses. It is also much less painful than radio frequency treatments used on older technology. Our technology also uses a 3-stage cooling. It cools the skin, before, during, and after each light pulse, so you feel little discomfort during treatment.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which normally fades within a few hours of treatment. Because so much of the skin is unaffected by the light pulses, there is a quick healing process. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time. Makeup can be applied directly after your treatment.
A series of treatments at 4-6 week intervals will deliver the best result of smoother, tighter skin in the face, arms, abdomen, and other areas.
