Tighten the Skin and Improve Contours with Sciton SkinTyte™
The body experiences many changes as it ages, and even though a person may not feel these changes on the inside, they often have an effect on the outer appearance. For instance, as the skin’s collagen bundles degrade over time, the skin will lose elasticity. Due to this effect, loose and saggy skin is likely to become a problem. While there are several surgical procedures that can address loose skin, many people are reluctant to undergo such invasive treatment. At Moradi MD, patients can safely and effectively address cosmetic flaws, such as loose skin, through non- or minimally-invasive laser skin treatments. One of these treatments, Sciton SkinTyte™, offers San Diego patients a chance to firm loose skin and improve the contours of the face and/or body.
Individuals who wish to improve skin firmness and achieve a more youthful appearance are encouraged to contact Moradi MD to learn more about this laser skin tightening treatment.
The SkinTyte™ Procedure
SkinTyte™ by Sciton is a laser skin tightening treatment that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissues in order to stimulate soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. What this translates into is a gradual firming and tightening of the skin, which in turn, improves body and/or facial contours, and provides patients with skin that looks fresher and more youthful. These results are achieved through a safe and non-invasive procedure that is typically completed in less than an hour.
Safety and patient comfort are always a top priority at Moradi MD, so patients are provided with eye protection during the SkinTyte™ treatment, and a cooling gel is applied to the skin to help mitigate discomfort. The handheld Sciton SkinTyte™ device will then be passed over the treatment area. While the soft tissues are heated, it is normal for patients to feel a slight warming of the skin, although these effects will be minimized by the sapphire contact cooling surface. Skin temperatures will be monitored throughout treatment to ensure that tissues reach the perfect temperature.
Ideal Candidates for SkinTyte™ Treatment
Laser treatments such as SkinTyte™ are non-invasive and do not require the use of incisions or anesthesia. As such, SkinTyte™ should be a safe treatment option for anybody who wishes to improve skin laxity, tighten the skin, and enhance the contours of the face or body. SkinTyte™ treatment works particularly well on the face, neck, thighs, and abdomen.
One of the greatest benefits of SkinTyte™ laser skin tightening treatment is that there really is no recovery to speak of. Patients will not require any downtime and should be able to immediately resume their normal routine. It is important to note that patients will need to protect the skin from sun exposure following SkinTyte™ treatment. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of collagen breakdown, so patients should limit sun exposure as much as possible, and the skin should always be protected by the use of sunscreen.
For optimal skin firming results, it is recommended that patients undergo a series of six SkinTyte™ treatment sessions. These sessions are generally scheduled every two to four weeks until the series is complete. While the skin should show some improvement after each session, it is likely to take several months for complete results to become evident.
SkinTyte™ results are meant to be lasting, but the skin will continue to age, so it is important that patients take steps to maintain treatment results. Ideally, patients should schedule maintenance SkinTyte™ treatments every two to three months. The use of topical anti-aging products can also help to keep the skin looking firm and fresh.
