What Is SkinTyte?
Part of the world-renowned line of Sciton® lasers, SkinTyte is a sophisticated skin tightening treatment that harnesses the power of infrared energy and broadband light (BBL) techniques to tone and firm the skin on nearly any area of the body. This procedure can be used on all skin types, brings about excellent results, and features no downtime. You may also want to ask about getting a HydraFacial MD® treatment before undergoing a SkinTyte procedure to enhance the results.

How Does SkinTyte Work?
SkinTyte works by delivering a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses of infrared light over the selected treatment area. This light passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and penetrates deep into the dermis. Once the light has entered the dermis, the treatment works in two phases: it first heats the collagen in the upper, middle, and deep dermis, and then causes collagen bonds to contract and soft tissue to coagulate. Over time, this leads to collagen remodeling and the toning and tightening of the skin.
What Are the Benefits of SkinTyte?
SkinTyte has a wide variety of unique benefits unmatched by many other skin firming treatments. It can target nearly any area of the body, with the most popular treatment areas including the face, neck, abdomen, knees, thighs, buttocks, and arms.
SkinTyte treatments can improve the appearance of the skin on these different areas by:
- Adding volume
- Softening fine lines and wrinkles
- Increasing definition
- Reducing the appearance of cellulite
- Fading stretch marks
- Stimulating collagen production
Before it used to take several different types of aesthetic treatments to reap all of these benefits: SkinTyte provides them in one comprehensive treatment.
