What to Expect
Prior to treatment, the skin is properly prepped and a protective gel is applied to the skin. The SkinTyte wand will be placed on the skin to heat up the deep layers through highly advanced radio wave technology. There is no pain and discomfort and patients will simply feel a warm sensation. The radio frequency heats up the collagen to cause skin to become firmer and tighter. In addition, Sciton SkinTyte system stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen to continuously make the skin improve over time. Treatment typically takes less than one hour.
After treatment, the skin might be slightly red or swollen, which should resolve in a few hours. With no downtime, patients can return to their normal activities immediately. Many patients report an improved appearance immediately after treatment with smoother, younger-looking, firmer skin. Over time, the skin will continue to improve since the skin’s collagen has been stimulated. For maximum benefits, most patients need 3 – 6 treatments.
