SkinTyte Laser Treatments Help Fight the Signs of Aging

antiagingThermage continues to be one of the most popular anti-aging procedures that tightens and firms up the skin, but many cosmetic surgeons encourage patients to pursue laser treatments and surgery to achieve a sculpted, youthful look.

Laser-based skin enhancing procedures such as Fraxel work by stimulating collagen production deep under the skin's surface, allowing the skin to rebuild fresh and healthy cells and create a more youthful appearance.  SkinTyte has recently entered the market as an alternative to conventional facial rejuvenation procedures, a laser and light-based device that, the makers claim, will lift, tighten and tone the skin within minutes.

The procedure involves applying a small handpiece to the skin and delivering high-energy infrared light into the dermis. This helps break down cells and initiates the cell building process, which in turn results in healthier, toned and more sculpted appearance.

SkinTyte is designed especially for those who have loose skin under the chin and neck area, since these areas typically do not respond to topical creams and gels,  or to changes in the diet.   Many patients who have excess fat and skin in this area may soon be treated with the innovative SkinTyte laser and light energy treatment that delivers heat deep into the skin and stimulates the body's cell production process.

Sciton, the company that has developed the SkinTyte treatment system, also suggests that the treatment can be used to treat hyperpigmentation, port wine stains, warts, acne, melasma and scars.

Each session of Skin-Tyte takes between 45-50 minutes, and most people can expect to see results after four sessions.
