As our bodies slow down production of these proteins, it can often lead to loose, sagging skin around the face, jawline, neck, and other areas. Although surgical procedures like a facelift or tummy tuck can be extremely effective for tightening loose skin, you may not want to go through such a major procedure. If you’d like to tighten up your sagging skin without undergoing surgery, you may want to consider SkinTyte treatment.

What Is SkinTyte?

SkinTyte, developed by Sciton, is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment used to tighten and rejuvenate loose or sagging skin. SkinTyte can be very effective for treating fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, stretch marks, and skin laxity.

How Does SkinTyte Work?

SkinTyte treatment works by sending short pulses of infrared energy to the targeted area of skin. This energy heats the dermal layer, which triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production. The increased collagen and elastin production leads to long-lasting improvements in the health and complexion of the skin. Additionally, as new healthy skin cells are generated in the treatment area, the skin becomes firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking.

Where Can SkinTyte Treatment Be Done?

SkinTyte treatment can be done in many different areas of the body. Some of the areas most commonly treated with SkinTyte include:

  • Face
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Stomach
  • Arms
  • Thighs

Benefits of SkinTyte

For anyone interested in a non-surgical method for rejuvenating their skin, SkinTyte treatment can offer the following benefits:

  • Firmer, more youthful-looking skin
  • Tightens loose or sagging skin
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin laxity
  • Increases self-confidence
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Minimal recovery downtime

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

The SkinTyte treatment process starts with a quick consultation with Dr. Arroyo. During this meeting, the doctor will talk with you about your specific hopes for the procedure and answer all of your questions. If you decide to proceed with the treatment, Dr. Arroyo will work with you to devise a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals.

SkinTyte treatment is a relatively simple outpatient procedure that does not require anesthesia. During the treatment, Dr. Arroyo will take the SkinTyte handpiece and run it carefully over your skin in the targeted area. You may feel a slight warming sensation, but the device’s cooling mechanism should prevent any significant discomfort. Overall, the treatment should only take around 30 to 45 minutes, and you can head home as soon as it’s finished.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Most patients don’t require any recovery downtime after undergoing SkinTyte treatment. You may experience some redness or tenderness around the treatment area, but you should be able to resume your normal routine immediately. However, you should be sure to wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when you’re outside in the days following your treatment.

Am I a Candidate for SkinTyte?

Adults who would like to improve the laxity and health of their skin could be good candidates for SkinTyte. Ideal candidates for the treatment should:

  • Be in generally good health
  • Have the desire to rejuvenate their skin without surgery
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have loose or sagging skin that they’d like to tighten

How Long Will It Take To See Results After SkinTyte Treatment?

You may notice improvements in the appearance of your skin immediately after your SkinTyte treatment. However, the results will continue to appear for several months as your body produces more collagen and elastin. The results of SkinTyte can last up to a year or longer. For optimal results, you may need three to five treatment sessions.
