How SkinTyte Treatments Diminish Lines and Wrinkles
posted on 9/3/2010
Loss of collagen and elastin are the key reasons why your skin starts to sag as you age. When you lose collagen because of too much sun exposure, an unhealthy diet or from a poor skincare routine, you’ll notice fine lines and wrinkles developing around the eyes and mouth, and loose, rugged-looking skin. These effects can be reversed with skin tightening treatments such as SkinTyte. SkinTyte from Sciton has been featured in the media, and is an innovative way to strengthen, tone and tighten the skin.
Find out if you may be a good candidate for SkinTyte treatments by contacting a cosmetic dermatologist in your area. Your dermatologist will be able to assess your skin’s condition and explain the key benefits of this non-invasive, anti-aging procedure.
Top Benefits of SkinTyte Treatments
The SkinTyte treatment process is painless and efficient, and can be performed on an outpatient basis at your local medical spa or cosmetic dermatologist’s office. Since there is no downtime involved, you can return to work and other activities immediately after the treatment.
Some of the top benefits of SkinTyte treatments include:
- Toning the skin without surgery or tissue manipulation
- Relatively comfortable treatment
- Visible tightening and firming of the skin after a single treatment
- Series of treatments produce long-term, progressive results
- Can reduce the appearance of deeper wrinkles around the mouth and eyes
- Can be administered to several areas of the body, including the abdomen, chest and inner thighs
- Improves texture of the skin
- Can be administered on almost all skin types
How SkinTyte Skin Tightening Treatments Work
SkinTyte skin tightening treatments use infrared light to affect the skin tissues. The infrared light beams are directed deep into the skin’s tissue and a cooling device helps reduce the thermal effect on surrounding tissues to prevent burns and trauma. The heat from this treatment triggers collagen production, which helps to firm, tighten and tone the skin tissue over time. The skin begins to look much healthier, smoother and more toned as a result.
SkinTyte treatments not only help to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but can also help the skin appear more luminous and youthful. In some cases, the infrared light beams can eliminate patches of reddened skin and help to get rid of age spots. If you have moderate to severe signs of sun damage, a series of SkinTyte treatments may be a good fit for you.
Most people need to undergo a series of three to five SkinTyte treatments in order to see significant results, and results are progressive – you can expect to see your skin becoming more firmer, toned and more resilient over several months after the first session. SkinTyte treatments may be combined with dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Botox to increase facial volume and create a more rejuvenated appearance.
