What is SkinTyte™️️️ by Sciton?
SkinTyte™️ is a non-invasive skin firming treatment brought to us by Sciton, an award-winning medical company that provides aesthetic solutions. The treatment uses BroadBand Light (BBL), also called infrared light energy, to heat deep layers of the skin, promoting collagen remodeling and tightening the skin over time.
Designed to tackle skin laxity, SkinTyte™️ is commonly used to treat sagging skin on the face, neck, jowls, and body, with little to no downtime. It is considered a safe and effective option for those seeking to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing surgery.
How Does SkinTyte™️️️ Work?
SkinTyte™️ by Sciton is performed with a specialized device that uses a combination of infrared light energy and a patented cooling process. The light energy is delivered in short bursts to heat deep layers of the skin. The light energy causes collagen fibers to contract, which stimulates the production of new collagen, while the cooling process helps to protect the surface of the skin and reduce discomfort during the treatment. The results are long-term improvement in skin laxity and texture.
What Are The Benefits of SkinTyte™️️️ by Sciton?
SkinTyte™ by Sciton is a light-based skin tightening treatment that is designed to improve the appearance of aging skin. Some of the benefits of SkinTyte™ include:
- Tightening of sagging skin: SkinTyte™ uses infrared light energy to penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.
- Improved skin texture: The treatment can help to improve the texture and overall quality of the skin including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promoting a more youthful glow.
- No downtime: Unlike other skin tightening treatments, SkinTyte™ does not require any downtime, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
- Non-invasive: SkinTyte™ is a non-invasive treatment, which means that there is no cutting or incisions involved.
- Customizable: The treatment can be customized to suit the specific needs of each patient, ensuring optimal results.
Am I a Good Candidate For SkinTyte™️️️?
There are many factors that can affect the appearance and elasticity of the skin, including exposure to UV rays, weight gain, and loss, pregnancy, and aging. SkinTyte™️️️ is suitable for most healthy adults who are concerned about mild to moderate skin sagging and want to tighten and firm the skin with a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment. SkinTyte™️️️ can also help improve the texture and tone of the skin.
The SkinTyte™️️️ Consultation
It is recommended that you consult a professional skin care specialist to determine if SkinTyte™️️️ is the right treatment for you. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in non-surgical and surgical treatments at LEA Plastic Surgery and offers SkinTyte™️️️ consultations.
During the consultation, Dr. Ho Taghva will inquire about your medical history and your aesthetic goals. She will also assess your skin and problem areas to determine whether SkinTyte™️️️ is a good fit for you. If SkinTyte™️️️ is recommended, Dr. Ho Taghva will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have about the treatment.
What to Expect During a SkinTyte™️️️ Session
The SkinTyte™️️️procedure is typically performed in a medical spa or dermatologist’s office and takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. During the procedure, the SkinTyte™️️️ handpiece is applied to the skin in a series of pulses, with each pulse delivering a controlled amount of energy to the skin.
Most patients report feeling only a warm sensation during the procedure, with little to no discomfort. After the procedure, the skin may be slightly red and swollen, but these symptoms typically resolve within a few hours.
The results of the SkinTyte™️️️ procedure are typically visible within a few days to a week after the procedure, and can last for up to several months. Patients typically undergo multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
How to Prepare for SkinTyte™️️️ by Sciton
- Consult with your doctor: Before undergoing the SkinTyte™ procedure, you should consult with a licensed medical professional to determine if the treatment is appropriate for your skin type and condition.
- Avoid sun exposure: The skin should be protected from sun exposure for a minimum of two weeks before and after the treatment. Use a high-SPF sunscreen and cover up with clothing or a hat.
- Stop using topical retinoids: Topical retinoids, such as retinol, should be discontinued at least one week before the treatment.
- Cleanse the skin: Cleanse the skin thoroughly the day before the treatment. This will ensure that the skin is free of any oils or creams that could interfere with the procedure.
- Wear loose clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment to avoid any irritation or pressure on the treated area.
Is There Any Downtime After the Treatment?
The SkinTyte™ procedure is non-invasive, meaning there is no surgery involved, so there is typically no downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, it is always best to consult with the treating physician for specific instructions and post-care instructions.
Are There Any Side Effects of SkinTyte™️️️ by Sciton?
Many patients do not experience any side effects after a SkinTyte™️️️ treatment, and those that do often find that they are mild and subside within a few hours or days. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort. Less common side effects can include pigment changes or burns, and these usually only occur if the procedure is done improperly. This is why it is important to undergo the procedure with a qualified medical professional.
Aftercare For SkinTyte™️️️
Because SkinTyte™️️️ is a non-invasive procedure, patients can typically get back to their regular routine immediately following the treatment. However, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you get the most out of your skin-tightening treatment.
It is best to avoid anything that might irritate the skin such as direct sun exposure, harsh skincare products, strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot tubs. It also helps to stay hydrated and apply ice packs if you experience swelling and redness. Follow-up appointments with your provider are also recommended to assess your progress and determine the need for further treatments.
