Sciton® SkinTyte™ uses pulsed light technology to heat the deep layers of skin, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance for patients experiencing wrinkles, sagging and other unwanted signs of aging.
This treatment can be safely and effectively performed on nearly any area of the body where sagging or laxity has occurred. Patients often seek treatment for their face, neck, abdomen and arms. Your doctor will help decide which areas would be most beneficial based on your individual goals.

How does this treatment work?
During the SkinTyte procedure, the device is moved across the skin of the targeted area to heat the collagen deep within the skin, which stimulates its production and gradually firms the skin for a renewed and refreshed appearance. The light used during this procedure does not cause any damage to the surface of the skin.
Most patients achieve their desired results after four treatment sessions spaced one month apart. Your doctor will determine how many treatments are needed for you based on a thorough evaluation of your skin and treatment goals. Each session usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size and location of the targeted area.
What is recovery like?
There is no downtime associated with the SkinTyte procedure, as patients can return to work immediately after their treatment. You may experience mild redness after each session, but this usually subsides within a few minutes. Patients can apply makeup right after treatment.
While special skincare products may not be required, it is always important for patients to protect their skin from sun exposure after treatment.
