When you want to look as young as you feel, there is a myriad of treatments you can try. Oftentimes, you notice your skin’s progressive aging when you look in the mirror. If you have sagging skin under your eyes, under your chin, or around your neckline, your body’s natural collagen and elastin production may be slowing down.
Causes of Sagging Skin
Aging is the primary culprit when it comes to sagging skin. As your skin naturally ages, it is also exposed to free radicals, pollution, and UV rays. Combined, these wreak havoc on your skin and can cause fine lines, wrinkles, and dreaded skin sagging. But there are other causes of sagging skin as well. If you’ve experienced significant weight loss, you may have excess skin that is loose. Pregnancy is another cause of saggy skin as your body returns to its pre-pregnancy state. No matter the cause, if your sagging skin is bothering you, it may be time to do something about it.
Before you consider invasive surgical intervention, you may want to explore additional treatment options that don’t involve anesthesia or going under the knife. If you are looking for mild to moderate results without downtime, look no further. One such treatment is SkinTyte by Sciton®.
What is SkinTyte Treatment?
SkinTyte is a skin tightening with laser treatment that delivers an advanced infrared light to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire surface at the same time. Light energy is distributed in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, which leads to an improved appearance of sagging skin. Photocoagulation from infrared light tightens loose collagen in the skin, causing short-term and long-term results. In other words, the laser causes your skin to believe it is damaged and start a repair process. However, the laser only emits pulses to the treatment area, as a sapphire plate cools the epidermis, protecting the surrounding skin.
Not only will your skin react to treatment positively by “repairing” itself, but it will also boost collagen production in the long run.
To address minor skin sagging, you can opt to use a firming cream, Grenzine, or patented serum. Anything beyond minor skin sagging could benefit from the SkinTyte treatment. It smooths the skin by naturally building up tissues beneath the surface. You will notice a smoother skin appearance as the tissue structures repair and rebuild, resulting in firmer, younger, and radiant-looking skin.
SkinTyte offers fast, safe, and effective treatments tailored for all skin types, making it cost-effective and risk-free. Treatment requires zero downtime, so you can resume your daily activities right after treatment.
Besides zero downtime after treatment, you never have to worry about looking like you’ve had work done. The treatment boosts naturally occurring processes within your skin, therefore, you will not have a frozen or statuesque look around your face.
Where Can SkinTyte Treatment Be Applied?
The most prominent location of sagging skin is typically under the eyes, under the jowls, around the neck, and under the chin. However, SkinTyte can be administered to a variety of different problem areas for optimal skin tightening results. You can receive treatment to address sagging skin around your chest, backs of your hands, upper arms, tummy, hips, and even above your knees. SkinTyte can treat just about anywhere your skin may sag. The treatment instrument is extremely precise, allowing your practitioner to customize your skin tightening with laser.
Now, it is important to note that results will not be face-lift worthy. If you are looking for surgical results, you will need to seek out surgical options. The same can be said for excessive loose skin after weight loss. SkinTyte results are very noticeable, but treatment is for mild to moderate skin sagging, not extreme skin sagging.
What is SkinTyte Treatment Like?
Before your appointment, you’ll be asked to remove all facial make-up, ointments, and creams. Men will be asked to shave prior to arrival.
After a comprehensive consultation with a professional practitioner regarding your overall skincare goals and needs, you will enter a spa-like treatment room. You will take a seat and be given a set of eye shields or safety goggles to wear during the procedure. This will protect your eyes from the laser light emitted from the device. A gel will be placed on the skin prior to treatment.
Your practitioner will use a patented wand to deliver light to the target in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. They will repeat this motion several times. You will probably feel a warming sensation around the treatment area, but the procedure is painless and causes minimal to no discomfort. After treatment, you may experience slight redness or swelling, but this will go away after a few minutes. SkinTyte requires no aftercare with the exception of using sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. In fact, you may even be able to apply certain makeup to your face right after treatment!
The entire procedure is fairly quick and can be completed during your lunch break. The face and neck usually take about 30 minutes to treat, but other areas of the body may take longer or shorter periods of time. For best results, you may need about two to five treatment sessions about two to four weeks apart. Results can last up to 18 months but vary based on an individual’s hormone levels, diet, sun exposure, pollution exposure, and other factors. It is safe to seek treatment every four months if needed.
