As people age, the skin ages too, losing its natural collagen and elasticity. Until recently, surgical procedures were the only option for truly relieving this concern. However, Sciton’s advanced technology allows for a new way to address sagging skin without the need for significant downtime associated with surgery. It’s called SkinTyte, and it can be used anywhere on the face, neck, or body!
How it works
SkinTyte utilises advanced infrared light technology and patient-tailored filters to deeply heat dermal collagen and firm areas of loose or sagging skin. With no need for a topical anaesthetic, SkinTyte delivers energy in rapid, gentle pulses to promote contraction, initiating the body’s natural healing process.
SkinTyte as one of the safest, most optimized, most costeffective ways to give patients younger-looking skin.
As an integral part of many patients’ long-term skin maintenance plan, the powerful results of SkinTyte can be
used to improve the appearance of severe wrinkles and mild-to-moderate sagging; restore a youthful contour of the face or body; and even help delay or eliminate the need for surgical procedures.

Benefits of SkinTyte
- No Downtime. Since there is no downtime, patients may resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.
- Superior Technology. SkinTyte offers fast, safe and effective treatments tailored to any skin type.

Everyone’s skin is different. SkinTyte allows your provider to design a plan to fit your unique skin type, treatment area(s), and aesthetic goals.
SkinTyte laser technology offers a completely customisable treatment to precisely target skin laxity, one of the most prominent and visible signs of ageing.
During an initial consultation for a SkinTyte laser treatment, your provider will assess your areas of concern and recommend the number of treatments needed to achieve your goals.
The SkinTyte Experience
During a SkinTyte appointment, your provider will identify the exact area to be treated.
He or she will apply the device, also used in BBL treatments, and pass over the skin a total of four times. Each of these passes delivers a gentle heat into the treatment area to promote collagen production, while simultaneously maintaining optimal temperature on the skin’s surface to keep the treatment comfortable and downtime minimal. The result is a new, stronger collagen layer that can last up to 12 months or more with continued maintenance.
Patients can expect mild redness and swelling similar to a sunburn sensation and tightness of skin, for a few minutes following the procedure. However, most patients apply make-up and return to normal activities immediately following treatment.
SkinTyte® is typically performed as part of a series approximately 4-8 weeks long depending on depth and coverage area of the treatment, as well as the health and integrity of the skin being treated.
BEFORE & AFTERS PHOTOS
Results can vary depending on the individual, area being treated, and settings used. However, most patients see peak results from their SkinTyte treatment starting 3 months after their treatment series.
You will see results from a single treatment; however, the number of treatments will depend on the severity of your skin laxity. A typical patient requires a series of 3 to 5 treatments.
Absolutely. Your provider will tailor the parameters of the SkinTyte to you, including your skin type, concerns, and aesthetic goals.
Each flash of BBL produces a feeling of warmth. Most patients easily tolerate the feeling with no anaesthetic numbing cream. Your clinician will advise you on your treatment options.
Each SkinTyte treatment is customised for your skin, and your lifestyle. Depending on your needs, your provider may recommend a single treatment or a series of treatments. In order to find out which is the best option for you, please book in for a consultation.
