a non-ablative approach to firmer skin.
What is SkinTyte?
The SkinTyte treatment is based on the principle of selective
thermolysis (ie using laser energy in special ways to selectively
influence target tissue in a desired manner), and utilises the
newest laser technology, the Sciton's BBL pulsed light technology,
to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire
treated surface. This makes the SkinTyte procedure safe, quick
and comfortable, and requires no downtime.
The end result is a progressive tightening of the skin resulting
in a more youthful appearance.
How does SkinTyte
The SkinTyte procedure utilises laser light energy to deeply
heat dermal collagen, causing partial denaturation and contraction
(tightening) of the collagen fibres, as well as stimulating
the body's natural healing process by attracting the body's
repair cells, the fibroblasts, to the area to lay down a new
collagen foundation. Both these changes lead to increased skin
firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your
skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse,
protecting it while allowing the laser energy to do its work
in the deeper dermis.
What is the treatment
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid,
gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however,
the doctor may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. A
series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to
ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be
treated within 30 minutes, actual time will depend on the area
What should I expect
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately
after and this should return to normal within minutes. Since
the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime
so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment.
You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
What results should
The SkinTyte procedure is not a substitute for a face-lift and
results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure
is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable
skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results
often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your
skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
What areas can be
SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed
on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness
is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, and
arms. You should consult with the doctor regarding the treatment
options that are best for you.
How many treatments
will I need?
A series of 3 treatments spaced a month apart is typical of
most patients. The doctor will personalise a treatment plan
based on the level of improvement you desire, and may also combine
SkinTyte with other popular aesthetic procedures to further
personalise your treatment.
What aftercare do
No special skincare regimen is required following treatment.
However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun
exposure and use a good sunscreen. .
