SkinTyte helps reduces the appearance of saggy, loose skin by heating deep into the skin and activating your body’s natural repair response to make and remodel collagen which leads to increased skin firmness.
The SkinTyte Procedure
The SkinTyte treatment is based on the scientific principal of selective thermolysis and utilizes Sciton’s BBL pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. Skin Tyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The result is a more youthful appearance in the treated area.

Who should consider SkinTyte?
Those looking for a noninvasive mild to moderate laxity improvement on the face or body.
How much downtime will there be after treatment?
There is no downtime with the SkinTyte™ procedure and you may immediately resume your normal activity schedule, and even apply makeup or sunscreen after treatment.
What is the treatment like?
The Skin Tyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. The treatment is comfortable and well tolerated.
What should I expect after treatment?
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the Skin Tyte procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime, so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply sunscreen and makeup after each session.
What results should I expect?
The Skin Tyte procedure is not a substitute for a face-lift and results may vary for everyone. The Skin Tyte procedure is recommended for those 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 treated?
Skin Tyte 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, knees, thighs, buttocks and arms. We will be happy to consult with you regarding treatment options that are best for you.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart is typical of most patients. We will work with you to personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. SkinTyte can be paired with other aesthetic procedures to personalize your treatment and help you reach your goals.
What aftercare do I need?
No special skincare regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use an appropriate sunscreen with a minimum of an SPF 30. We will also recommend an at home skincare regimen to maintain the results of your treatment.
