You can greatly benefit from SkinTyte™ at Ageless Beauty in Mountain Home, ID if you have areas of loose sagging skin, aging skin, or irregular skin texture. SkinTyte™ also helps to improve mild acne scars and reduces the pore size on the skin. This therapy can also reduce fine lines around the lips, mouth and eyes.
This light energy, non-invasive treatment for skin laxity is safer and more effective than ever before. Ageless Beauty uses the Sciton SkinTyte™ laser for safe infrared light energy and advanced skin cooling technology to comfortably deliver heat below the skin’s surface for increased tissue tightening and reduced skin laxity.
If loose skin associated with underarm, cheeks, neck area, abdomen, knees or other areas are becoming troublesome then skin tightening lasers may offer you the solution to avoid surgery, excessive expense or downtime associated with other treatments. Skin tightening lasers can be used wherever loose skin is indicated on the body and is safe and effective for all body areas where there is no prominent bony structures.
Skin Tyte™ offers a non-invasive approach to firmer skin. The Skin Tyte™ procedure utilizes a broadband of light energy to deeply heat the dermal collagen. This process promotes the stimulation of collagen. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness.
Skin tightening for all body areas use infrared laser energies to heat the reticular dermis to effect tightening of the skin. Newer infrared technologies heat the lower dermis responsible for skin contraction and results are achieved in a manner of a few treatments. The treatments are safe for all skin types with no age restrictions and the typical treatment takes (30) minutes or less depending upon the body area.
Collagen is a protein that provides a matrix of support for the skin. This causes the skin to tighten and makes for a more youthful appearance. This can be used on all skin colors. A unique aspect of this laser is the ability to precisely cool the skin before and during the laser treatment. This prevents any damage due to over-heating the surface of the skin. As a result, the collagen is stimulated without any down time. Patients may return to normal activity immediately.
There are (2) different ways of creating skin tightening and are not independent of each other and in fact are complimentary to the other. Collagen stimulation or remodeling is used to increase skin density and in turn causes the skin to become more taught and stretched. Collagen shrinkage is used when the lower reticular dermis is wounded and there is a contraction of the reticular dermis thus creating the skin tightening effect. Together, facial atrophy, facial wrinkling, and large body pre-mature wrinkling can be corrected.
Collagen remodeling require an inflammatory response of the skin to heat, typically this is done at the papillary dermis. This controlled wounding stimulates fibroblast activity (collagen growth) that replaces lost collagen. Collagen shrinkage is achieved by bulk heating of various body and facial areas that will cause the collagen shrinkage in the papillary dermis thus achieving the contraction of the skin.
Results will vary between individuals depending upon present skin condition, age, and overall health. Typical protocols for the Skin Tyte™ require 3-5 treatments spaced a month apart for the best results,
but results can vary based upon the amount of skin tightening desired, the area for skin tightening, and the total area requested. The treatments are not painful, there is no need for anesthetic, and there is no “downtime” to the procedures. Final results last between 6-12 months depending upon lifestyle issues and maintenance is required for long-term results. Individuals that fluxuate in weight, do not exercise, or continue to damage the skin (ie UV rays) may not achieve the long-term results and the results will be more temporary unless additional maintenance procedures are performed.

The most common areas are those that receive the most sun, such as the face, neck, arms and abdomen; however, it can be used anywhere on the body.
