Skin Tyte and Pelleve
Both of these modallities are used for skin tightening and are non surgical options with no cutting, no anesthesiam no downtime or pain.. Skin Tyte uses infra-red heat technology and is designed to treat the arms, belly, neck, and jowls. Pelleve uses radiofrequency generated heat to treat the face around and under the eyes, jawline, and brows.
What is Skin Tyte?
Sciton's Skin Tyte offers of a non-invasive treatment for skin laxity which is safer and more effective than ever before. By delivering 100% safe infrared light energy with advanced surface cooling technology heat is delivered below the skin's surface to increase tissue tightening and reduce skin laxity.
This ground-breaking new technology is used to selectively heat the dermal collagen deep in your skin while at the same time cooling the epidermis (outer layer of skin) prior-to, during, and after treatment, reducing pain and minimizing internal thermal injury to adjacent skin structures. The result is partial coagulation and contraction of collagen which tightens the skin.
What can Skin Tyte do for my skin?
A Skin Tyte procedure is a series of full face or body, gentle uses of pulsed infrared light energy treatments aimed to improve the appearance of sun damaged and aged skin, as well as decrease patches of facial and neck redness and flushing. Skin Tyte treatment results in a much younger looking skin.
Skin Tyte Treatments were developed to consistently and predictably improve the visible appearance of the skin with no down time. Skin Tyte treatments may be used over any areas of the body that present aged, photo damaged skin such as neck, chest, hands and arms.
Which area of the body can be treated with Skin Tyte?
SkinTyte treatment is safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen and arms.
How does the Skin Tyte work?
The SkinTyte process selectively photocoagulates soft tissue in combination with an integral thermo-electric cooler for use in cooling the epidermis at the treatment site prior to, during and after treatment to reduce pain and minimize heat injury to the adjacent skin structures.
By utilizing a broadband of light energy to heat dermal collagen, this process promotes the partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also stimulates the body's natural healing process which generates a renewed firmer collagen base that leads to skin tightening.
Most individuals requires 2-5 sessions. Each session is spaced at an interval of 3-4 weeks.
This treatment takes about 45 minutes per area. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, belly and upper chest.
Most patients feel that their skin is tighter after just one treatment, but visible improvements in skin laxity generally take place over three to six months. This exciting new technology is perfect for those who wish to tighten and firm up their skin, with virtually no down-time. This is outstanding for the patient who wants to avoid surgery but still "tighten up".
With Pelleve we can offer our patients a non-painful, nonsurgical option for skin tightening and smoothing the skin of the face. A cooling gel is applied to the face and a warm radiofrequency wand is rubbed over the areas of loose or wrinkled skin. Most patients require 4 treatments at 2 to 4 week intervals to achieve the maximal results. These results last between 12 and 16 months. Immediately after the treatment you will be slightly red for a few hours. In time your skin will look tighter, less wrinkled, and feel smoother.
