Skin Tyte™

Unlock Your Inner Beauty


*Results may vary from patient to patient

The Sciton Skin Tyte is the latest and most effective procedure available to tighten loose and sagging skin. The Sciton laser delivers targeted infrared energy into the dermal layer of your skin. This energy creates a thermal injury. Your body’s natural response to this type of thermal injury is to create more collagen. More collagen helps to restore elasticity to your skin, therefore tightening the tissue.

The Skin Tyte treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes Sciton’s Broad Band Light to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. There is virtually no recovery time and you may resume an active lifestyle immediately.

How does the Sciton Skin Tyte work?

Skin Tyte utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Skin Tyte hand piece.

How many treatments will I need?

In some cases, tighter skin can be seen after just one treatment, although a package of 3 to 4 treatments is recommended for best results.

What do the treatments feel like?

With each Skin Tyte pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation followed by a very short period of cooling.

What conditions can be treated?

  • Loose skin
  • Rosacea
  • Telangiactasia (facial veins)
  • Redness
  • Spider veins
  • Broken capillaries
  • Vascular birthmarks
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Spider veins
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

What areas can be treated?

All skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, arms and legs.

How many treatments will I need?

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Your physician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

How long does a treatment last?

A treatment usually takes approximately 30 minutes, although time varies depending upon the area being treated.

How soon will I see results?

Results can be seen after just one treatment, although normally four to six treatments are recommended in order to achieve optimal results. Because it works with your body’s collagen production, it takes 2 to 3 months to see full results.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effect is bruising around the treated area, though this is rare. This will resolve within days of the treatment. Most people do experience erythema (redness) which may last several hours, but is usually quite transient.
