SkinTyte™ in Atlanta
Sagging skin is a common concern among our patients at Artisan Plastic Surgery following pregnancy or weight loss, or simply due to the natural aging process.
Fortunately, there has been a recent bloom in minimally invasive technologies that allow us to effectively tighten loose skin and restore a smooth, firm contour to an area without surgery, scars, or downtime. One of our favorite of these treatments is SkinTyte™ by Sciton.
What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte is a non-invasive, energy-based treatment that uses infrared light to gently heat tissues and stimulate collagen production. It’s similar to a laser or BBL (broadband light treatment), but the specific infrared wavelengths used by SkinTyte are particularly effective at boosting collagen production in soft tissues without overheating, even in sensitive areas such as the hands, under the eyes, and on the brow.
Made by Sciton, one of the most trusted manufactures of high-quality aesthetic lasers, SkinTyte is designed for optimum precision and patient comfort:
- Safe for all skin types and colors to firm & tighten skin
- No anesthetic needed
- Treatments take just 30 minutes, on average
- Minimal risk of side effects and no downtime
What areas does SkinTyte treat?
We can use SkinTyte to tighten mild to moderately loose skin nearly anywhere on the face or body, including:
- Lower eyelids
- Cheeks and jowls
- Upper arms
What to expect with your Atlanta SkinTyte treatment
Our experienced, licensed aestheticians perform SkinTyte in our comfortable medical spa treatment rooms. No topical anesthetic is needed, although we will be happy to provide a numbing cream for more sensitive areas.
The SkinTyte device is placed on the skin’s surface and delivers the infrared light energy in a sequence of quick, gentle pulses. Treatments for the face and neck typically take about 30 minutes, although exact procedure time will depend on the area(s) being treated.see more patient reviews stars
I am so happy with my relationship with Artisian Plastic Surgery! From the start, they were concerned with my desire to have a natural result and they provided amazing results.
How many SkinTyte treatments will I need?
Most patients get the best results with a series of SkinTyte treatments, performed about two weeks apart. The exact number of treatments will depend on the area, the degree of skin sagging, your natural skin elasticity and healing response, and your personal goals. Expect at least 4 to 6 treatments for most areas.
How long will the results last?
Because SkinTyte helps your body rebuild its own natural collagen structures, results improve over time. It’s important to do your part with a healthy diet, regular exercise, good sleep habits, and a quality anti-aging skincare program.
