Sciton Laser Skin Tightening
Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments with SkinTyte™ are very popular at our Fort Worth practice with our patients from Mansfield, Arlington, and other nearby areas. Many women and men who want to look more youthful aren’t interested in facial plastic surgery, and advanced skin tightening technology makes that possible for the right patients.
What Is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte is a versatile treatment that uses infrared energy to penetrate deep into the skin, heating collagen to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This, in turn, generates new, healthy collagen and helps firm up skin. In addition to tightening skin on the face and most areas of the body, SkinTyte can also improve the appearance of skin damaged by the sun and minimize facial and neck redness. This procedure can be used on all skin types with excellent results and requires virtually no downtime.
What Happens During a SkinTyte Treatment?
Because the SkinTyte procedure cools the skin’s outer layers as it heats up subdermal collagen, there is minimal discomfort. We can perform treatments with or without a topical anesthetic, which numbs the targeted area. The specialist performing the treatment uses a handheld device, which delivers infrared energy in a series of rapid, gentle pulses. This sequence is repeated across the treatment area. Most treatments for the face and neck can be completed within about 30 minutes, but the treatment time varies depending on the treatment area.
A Reputation Built on Results
What Are the Benefits of a SkinTyte Treatment?
One of the reasons for the popularity of SkinTyte treatments is that the procedure can be used for a range of aesthetic concerns. People choose this treatment to:
- Improve skin texture and smoothness
- Plump the skin
- Reduce and soften fine lines and wrinkles around the lips, mouth, and eyes
- Increase jawline definition, improve jowls
- Create a more youthful-looking face, neck, and upper chest
- Improve skin laxity on the abdomen, thighs, arms, knees, and buttocks
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks
- Rejuvenate by stimulating increased collagen production in the upper, middle, and deep dermis of the skin
Because we offer both SkinTyte and laser skin resurfacing treatments, along with other skin care procedures, we ask that patients schedule skincare consultations with one of our nurses before coming in for treatments. We can use the information gathered at this appointment to create a customized plan and determine the appropriate treatment. We also use the VISIA® Complexion Analysis system to help us produce optimal outcomes and develop skincare regimens that are right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do results of laser skin tightening last?
The results of SkinTyte treatments can last up to 2 years. Your age, what you eat, how much you exercise, and your skin care habits affect how long the results will last. Extensive exposure to the sun can weaken the structure of your skin, so a high-SPF sunscreen will help you prolong your results.
How much do laser skin tightening treatments cost in Fort Worth?
The price of laser skin tightening using SkinTyte will vary from patient to patient. The cost depends on the treatment area or areas, your aesthetic goals, and the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve those goals.
How many treatments will I need?
Because SkinTyte is gentler than other nonsurgical skin tightening treatments, you may need up to 6 treatment sessions to get the desired results. The benefit is that the procedure involves little to no discomfort and no downtime is needed after each session.
