Skin Tyte – Safe for all skin types, SkinTyte is most effective in treating the lower face and neck but can predictably and effectively treat any area of the body where improvement is desired, giving you a firmer, and more youthful appearance. It can be used to treat wrinkles, skin laxity, and “crepe-paper” appearance of the middle, lower face, neck, jowls, and upper chest.
SkinTyte-BBL of Sciton utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation that tightens tissue as it heals, stimulating collagen contraction and remodeling. This process initiates your body’s natural healing process and a new foundation of collagen is created, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
Most side effects are mild and of short duration. These can consist of short term discomfort during the actual treatment. There is usually additional redness immediately following treatment, lasting less than 24 hours in most people, on rare occasions it may last up to three days. Mild blistering and bruising is possible but in our experience occur in less than 1% and usually clear very quickly.
