There is a safe, non-surgical solution for addressing loose skin on the lower face and neck. SkinTyte by Sciton is the most advanced skin tightening treatment that harnesses the power of broad band light technology. This BBL laser treatment delivers spectacular results and has no downtime, making it a popular request here in our Dallas dermatology office.
How does SkinTyte laser tighten skin?
SkinTyte improves the appearance of mild to moderate skin laxity by gently heating dermal tissue and stimulating collagen production. The device delivers pulses of high-intensity infrared light into the dermis, causing the fibers to contract and tighten. This triggers the body’s innate healing response along with collagen remodeling. As new collagen is formed, the result is improved skin elasticity and firmness along with a more youthful appearance. The system has a built-in cooling mechanism that regulates temperature for a safe and comfortable treatment.
Does SkinTyte work on the face?
Yes, Sciton SkinTyte is used to tighten up sagging skin on the face, particularly the jowls, cheeks, and nasolabial folds. The device can be used on other parts of the body as well, such as the neck, stomach, thighs, and arms.
Is BBL SkinTyte painful?
No, BBL SkinTyte is not painful, and the treatment does not call for a topical anesthetic cream. The majority of patients describe BBL therapy as relaxing. Each pulse of broad band light produces a mild sensation of warmth.
How long is a SkinTyte treatment?
It takes between 30 and 40 minutes to perform a SkinTyte treatment on the face and neck. The length of your procedure will depend on the areas of skin being treated.
When will I see results from SkinTyte?
Results will vary on the settings utilized, but most will see measurable results from their SkinTyte treatment after 8-12 weeks.
What kind of downtime can I expect?
Because the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, you can return to your normal daily activities right away. There is no peeling or lengthy recovery period. Mild redness and a sunburn sensation are normal afterward but resolve within a few minutes. Be sure to limit UV exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin following the treatment.
How many sessions of SkinTyte do you need?
This will be determined during a one-on-one consultation with our dermatologists, but the average patient requires a series of 3 to 5 SkinTyte treatments to achieve maximum results. These sessions are usually spaced one month apart.
How long do SkinTyte results last?
A healthy lifestyle and daily sun protection can help maintain and prolong SkinTyte results. Smoother, firmer skin can last for up to two years.
Am I a good candidate for non-surgical skin tightening?
SkinTyte is a revolutionary BBL treatment for people with moderate skin looseness, not extreme laxity. It’s safe for those with darker skin tones and is completely customizable.
