Skin Tightening

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a scientifically innovative way to non-invasively tighten loose aged skin. Skin tightening is commonly done on the face, neck, abdomen, under arms and legs. The SkinTyte treatment can be combined with other laser treatments, and can also help with rosacea, and sun damaged skin.

How does it work?

Sciton ST Broad Band Light heats the dermal collagen deep in your skin while keeping epidermis (outer layer of skin) cool, thus protecting the skin and making the treatment very comfortable. The result of heating the dermal collagen is partial coagulation and the contraction of collagen which tightens the skin. While the skin can feel tighter after just one skin tightening treatment, the results are best seen if a series for 3-6 treatments are performed.

What to expect after the treatment:

Because the outer skin is kept cool and protected, the treatment creates no down time and you are able to go back to work and resume your normal activities immediately following treatment. Customized post treatment instructions will be discussed during your consultation and after treatment has been performed.
