Tighter skin is a sign of youth. As you grow older, your skin begins to lose tightness and starts to sag. You might not feel the changes that occur on the inside of your body, but you’ll always notice the changes on the outside. Over time, the bundles of collagen within your skin degrade and cause your skin to lose elasticity, which results in saggy skin. Surgical procedures can help, but they’re not suitable options for everyone. Sciton laser treatments can tighten your skin without the same risks associated with surgery.
How Sciton Laser Treatments Work
If you want tighter skin, laser treatments can help. The SkinTyte Scion Laser uses infrared energy to send heat into your soft tissues, which stimulates collagen production. The major advantage of increased collagen production is the gradual tightening of your skin.
After the treatment, your skin will slowly become firmer. Most people see the full benefits of the treatment over the course of several months. Sciton laser treatments can improve your body or facial contours, and when you’re finished with the procedure, your skin will look younger and feel firmer.
Unlike traditional surgical procedures, Sciton laser treatments aren’t invasive, and the procedure can often be completed in less than one hour. During the treatment, you’ll be given appropriate eye protection, and we will do everything necessary to keep you comfortable.
As the laser is used to heat your soft tissues, it’s normal to feel a warming sensation. For your comfort, the effects of the heat are continuously reduced with a specially designed cooling system. To make sure the soft tissue within your skin is heated to the perfect temperature, we’ll monitor your skin throughout the treatment and make any necessary adjustments.
Are You a Candidate?
Before considering the SkinTyte laser treatment, you should know if you’re a good candidate. Since Sciton laser treatments don’t require anesthesia or incisions, they’re safe for most people. Ideal candidates should have problems with loose skin.
The treatment is recommended for patients who want to enhance their contours and obtain tighter skin. Since Sciton laser treatments are particularly effective for the face, we recommend them to patients who have a lot of loose skin on the face. The procedure also works great for the abdomen, thighs, chest, neck and arms.
What to Expect from The Results
Depending on your cosmetic goals, you might need to undergo several Sciton laser treatments, which are scheduled over a period of several months. After each treatment, your skin will show minor signs of improvement, but you will likely see full results after a few months. The results from Sciton laser treatments are designed to last, but for the best results, you should consider undergoing additional maintenance treatments.
You can also enhance your results with topical anti-aging products. If you’re looking for a way to tighten your skin, look younger and avoid traditional surgery, then it might be time to consider the powerful Sciton laser treatments.
