Tyte-en Up that Sagging Skin

In this day of everyone writing reviews and such online, there’s no shortage of caveman quality grammar out there across the web. You may think that headline is right there with a whopper of a typo. Alas, you’d be wrong in that line of thinking.

Instead, maybe you should think about tightening your sagging skin this November with SkinTyte at Elite.

Sagging is a part of aging, although an obnoxious one. Collagen is the real culprit. As we age our collagen production drops one additional percent every year after our 20th birthday. Over 30 years, you have 30 percent less collagen. And since collagen provides the skin’s underlying structural support, your skin will be at least 30 percent saggier.

At Elite Plastic Surgery, we offer Sciton SkinTyte™ to tighten that skin back up, without any surgery or downtime. This laser skin treatment provides remarkable skin tightening in just minutes.

What is Sciton SkinTyte?

The key to SkinTyte™ is heating the dermis, the skin’s second layer that lies beneath the epidermis. When Melissa Heys, our Licensed Aesthetician, applies the Sciton laser’s energy to the target area, it penetrates the epidermis and delivers heat into the dermis. When the dermis receives this heat, it perceives it as a wound and responds with coagulation of the soft tissue and collagen. More important long-term, the body also responds by producing new collagen in the treatment areas. The result is a gradual firming and tightening of the skin that begins with your treatment and continues for weeks afterwards.

If Sciton SkinType safe for my surface skin?

You would think that delivering heat energy into the dermis layer of the skin would cause burning on the surface. This isn’t the case, however. Melissa applies a cooling gel to the skin to be treated prior to the application of the laser energy. This prevents damage to the surface skin.

What can SkinTyte™ address?

This revolutionary laser technology can tighten skin across the body. Here are things it can do:

  • Improve skin texture and smoothness
  • Plump the skin
  • Reduce and soften fine lines and wrinkles around the lips, mouth, and eyes
  • Increase jawline definition
  • Create youthful-looking skin on the face, neck, and upper chest
  • Improve skin tautness on the abdomen, thighs, arms, knees, and buttocks

How many treatments are recommended?

Melissa recommends a series of six Sciton SkinTyte™ treatment sessions for optimal skin firming. These sessions are spaced from two to four weeks apart. Your results will continue to improve for months afterwards.
