SkinTyte by Sciton in Marmur Medical in New York

Sagging skin is the result of the body’s natural aging process, but it can also be caused by genetics, lifestyle choices, including sun exposure or significant weight loss. As the body ages, collagen and elastin production slows down, reducing the skin’s foundational structure. Aging fat, muscle, bones, and immune system contribute to loss of the skin’s infrastructure as well. Without this strong foundation, the skin can begin sagging. With SkinTyte tightening treatments at Marmur Medical, our skin experts can help you improve the appearance of laxity  and stimulate collagen production with minimal downtime and discomfort.

At Marmur Medical, our expert team can help you improve the appearance of your skin to revitalize your look and help boost your self-confidence.

What Is SkinTyte?

SkinTyte is a skin tightening treatment that heats the tissues deep within the skin with infrared light energy to stimulate collagen production and contract the existing collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin. Unlike lasers, SkinTyte uses broadband light energy and is non-ablative, so it doesn’t remove layers of the skin when heating the collagen.

While SkinTyte is heating the deep layers of the skin, fibroblasts (cells that form connective tissues) create collagen. As collagen is formed, it creates new structural support for the skin and helps deliver a tighter, younger-looking appearance. Collagen takes a while to build up, so you’ll continue to see improvements for months after your last treatment.

Typically, our experts recommend a series of three to six SkinTyte treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart to achieve the best results.

While aging is a significant factor in sagging skin, skin laxity is not always caused by the aging process. Genetics and certain lifestyle choices may impact the appearance of skin, including:

  •  Significant weight loss
  • Smoking
  •  Sun exposure
  • Poor dietary choices
  • Hydration
  • Stress levels

With minimal discomfort and downtime, SkinTyte procedures are generally quick with sessions lasting less than an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. Since it is safe for all skin types and most skin tones, SkinTyte can be performed on nearly any area of the body where you’d like firmer skin and a more youthful appearance. SkinTyte can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

As a versatile treatment, SkinTyte helps improve the appearance of lax, sagging skin on the:

  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Thighs

SkinTyte Vs. Ultherapy

Both SkinTyte and Ulthera stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The difference between the treatments is that SkinTyte is performed with light energy to heat the deepest layers of the skin, stimulating collagen tightening. With SkinTyte treatments, it can take up to six months and a series of multiple treatments to achieve full results.
Ulthera is performed with ultrasound technology, stimulating collagen tightening at the deepest layer of skin. Some patients see initial results almost immediately; however, full Ultherapy results typically take three to six months to achieve. With one treatment, Ulthera delivers results that can last from two to five years. Ulthera is a more intense treatment, which can cause more discomfort than SkinTyte treatments.

SkinTyte Vs. Broadband Light (BBL)

Broadband light, or BBL, skin rejuvenation treatments focus on improving the skin’s appearance by addressing concerns like the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, acne, small vessels, and sun damage. BBL warms the top layers of the skin with intense pulsed light to encourage collagen production and diminish pigmented lesions and melanin.

SkinTyte treatments focus on tightening and toning the skin by delivering light energy deeper into the skin to thicken existing collagen and stimulate collagen production, revealing firmer, brighter skin. 

In short, both treatments improve the skin’s appearance, but they focus on different aspects. BBL focuses on the appearance of the skin while SkinTyte addresses the structure of the skin to improve firmness.

What Are the Benefits of SkinTyte Treatments?

SkinTyte is an innovative, non-invasive skin tightening treatment that boosts collagen production and delivers natural-looking results without downtime or discomfort. With the power of light energy, SkinTyte provides quick treatments that address lax skin in multiple areas of the body.

Who Is a Good Candidate for SkinTyte Treatments?

The best candidates are those who are in good overall health, have a positive attitude, and understand the risks and benefits of treatment. To ensure the best results, patients should be at a stable weight as weight fluctuations can impact results.

As a non-invasive procedure, SkinTyte is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types and tones. With minimal discomfort, SkinTyte is well-tolerated by most patients, even those with sensitive skin.

While safe, effective SkinTyte treatments are suitable for most patients, there are a few conditions that impact a person’s eligibility.

Patients who are not suitable candidates for SkinTyte treatments include those who:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are experiencing active rosacea, herpes, blisters, or sores
  • Are using certain acne medications, including high dose Accutane

What to Expect from a SkinTyte Treatment

Before Your SkinTyte Treatment

It’s essential to be in good overall health before any skin rejuvenation procedure. Each SkinTyte treatment will be tailored to your needs; however, here’s general information to help you prepare.

  • Avoid sun exposure for two weeks, including tanning beds and sunless tanners.
  • Discuss your health history, including medical conditions or medications that increase your sensitivity to light and any use of Accutane in the past six months.
  • Smoking can hamper the body’s healing processes. Quitting smoking can help maintain your SkinTyte results.
  • Avoid taking blood-thinning medications, supplements, or vitamins that increase bleeding or bruising risks for a week.
  • Come to your SkinTyte appointment with clean, moisturized skin.

SkinTyte Treatment

As SkinTyte treatments are typically well tolerated by most patients, you may not require a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. Most patients experience a slight warming sensation. However, be sure to discuss your pain concerns with your provider before beginning your treatment.

To begin your treatment, you will be provided eye protection. Your skin will be cleansed, then your provider will guide the SkinTyte handpiece across the treatment area, delivering high-intensity light energy in a sequence of rapid pulses. While the SkinTyte device heats your skin, the outer layers of your skin will be cooled to ensure your comfort.

Depending on the size of the treatment area, SkinTyte skin tightening procedures typically last 35 to 45 minutes.

SkinTyte Recovery

Following your SkinTyte procedure, you may experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness in the treated area. This effect should be resolved within minutes to hours. However, as SkinTyte is a non-invasive procedure, patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment, including wearing makeup and exercising.

Though there is no downtime required, it’s important to protect your skin from sun exposure with sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and use gentle products on your skin as it heals. Proper skin care can help maintain your results.
