What is Skin Tyte?
New advances in light energy have led to the development of a non-invasive treatment of skin laxity which is safer and more effective than ever before. Sciton ST Broad Band Light offers 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.
This 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.
