What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte from Sciton is a groundbreaking technology that uses infrared energy to deeply heat collagen of the skin. It’s an advanced, non-ablative treatment that has the ability to achieve smoother, firmer skin. Our Pittsburgh SkinTyte treatments are perfect for those who want moderate skin improvement without surgery or invasive procedures.
What Areas Does SkinTyte Treat?
SkinTyte can treat the face, neck, abdomen, hands, and arms. If you’re beginning to notice sagging skin, sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, splotches, or darkened scar areas left behind by acne in these areas, a SkinTyte treatment in Pittsburgh may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
How SkinTyte Works
Using a principle known as selective thermolysis, SkinTyte pulses light deeply into the dermal layers, heating them while also cooling and protecting the skin’s surface. When collagen is heated to this degree, it contracts and goes through partially denaturation. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, wherein renewed collagen begins to grow, increasing skin firmness.
What Happens During the SkinTyte Treatment?
Our Pittsburgh SkinTyte treatments are always performed by one of our highly trained physician assistants at Acqua Blu Medical Spa. No anesthesia is needed. During the procedure, infrared light is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle light pulses directly to the area being corrected. This anti-aging light energy penetrates several layers below the skin’s surface.
As collected collagen proteins are stimulated, deposits begin to contract and the skin starts to tighten from the inside out. Patients often compare the feeling of the treatment to a “hot massage” and report very little discomfort, if any. The treatment typically lasts for about 45 minutes, and we recommend that SkinTyte treatments be performed a month apart.
