Skin tightening with the Sciton SkinTyte laserSciton SkinTyte™ is a quick, effective laser treatment that we often use for firming up aging skin and stimulating new collagen growth. It helps strengthen your skin and increases its elasticity.
If you have sagging skin that you want to tighten without surgery, Sciton SkinTyte treatment can help. Sciton SkinTyte treatment can be used by itself, or after liposuction or surgical facelift to enhance their results.
Here at Mountain View Dermatology & Aesthetics, our patients often request laser skin tightening treatments for these areas:
- Lower face, jawline and neck
- Backs of the hands
- Upper arms
- Above the knees
Since the treatment process is so gentle, there’s generally no need for any topical anesthetic, although we can use it for sensitive areas if you prefer.
How should I prepare for skin tightening?There’s no preparation needed before a laser skin tightening treatment – Just make sure to avoid excessive sun exposure for a few weeks before your treatment.
Treatment times vary; a treatment for the face and neck usually takes about 30 minutes. It’s quick and comfortable – We’ll ask you to wear protective glasses during the procedure, but there’s generally little or no discomfort.
When will I see results after a Sciton SkinTyte treatment?Although results vary, most patients see a noticeable improvement in skin firmness within about one month following treatment.
The treatment stimulates the rebuilding of collagen in your skin, which takes several months. Most patients see noticeable improvement in the neck and lower part of the face.
The firmness in your skin’s texture continues to develop gradually, and becomes fully visible over about four months.
Depending on your needs and the existing condition of your skin, we often recommend between two to five treatments at two-to-four week intervals to achieve the results you want.
