Wrinkles may indicate wisdom, but tight, smooth skin indicates youth and beauty. SkinTyte® is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes the energy of advanced infrared light technology to intensely heat soft tissue and dermal collagen. The deep heating process initiates immediate collagen contraction as your body’s “healing response” is triggered and stimulates new collagen production resulting in firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin. Contact Dr. Fisher of Fisher Medical & Aesthetics Center in Peoria, Arizona to schedule your SkinTyte appointment.

Skin Tightening Q & A

What kind of treatment is SkinTyte by Sciton® and how does it work?

SkinTyte is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses infrared light energy to intensely heat soft tissue and dermal collagen, while also protecting the treated skin surface with contact cooling for safety and comfort.

Gentle pulses deliver infrared energy, consequently promoting immediate results from collagen contraction. With the partial coagulation of the collagen heated, the second phase of remodeling occurs with the initiation of the body’s natural healing process and the stimulation of increased collagen production.

The result is increased tissue firmness and tighter, younger-looking skin. The full effects of this skin firming treatment continue over several months.

What does a SkinTyte treatment feel like? Is there any downtime?

Many people have likened it to a hot stone massage. This no-pain, no downtime treatment requires no aftercare beyond keeping the skin well hydrated and protected from sun exposure.

Regular activities can be resumed immediately following treatment, and the results continue to increase over time as your body produces new collagen.

What conditions or areas of the body are best treated with SkinTyte?

The SkinTyte procedure has both immediate and long-term remodeling benefits that work to reverse laxity, improve tone, and maintain firm, youthful skin anywhere on the body. The most dramatic improvements are typically on the face, neck, and abdomen.

SkinTyte offers fast, safe, and effective treatments tailored for all skin types, making it an excellent treatment to lift and smooth the skin and reduce sagging. Sagging is especially typical in areas such as the neck.

How many treatments are recommended for best results?

Initially, a series of three to five treatments are recommended to maximize collagen shrinkage and new collagen production. SkinTyte is also a very effective, safe, pain-free maintenance treatment that can be done as often as every two to three months to help keep your skin forever young.
