Skintyte BBL

Description

SkinTyte is a noninvasive skin-tightening treatment. It uses pulses of infrared-light technology to heat deep dermal layers, which contracts existing collagen and accelerates new collagen production. The heat from the BBL causes the collagen and elastic fibres to shrink and tighten, all while stimulating the remodeling of the collagen. It’s frequently used on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and thighs, but it works on any area of sagging skin. While the applicator delivers heat, its cooling tip keeps the skin’s surface from getting too warm.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

  • Full arms
  • Above the knees

  • Lower face
  • Eyelids

What It Treats

Aging, sun damage from ultraviolet (UV) light, smoking, stress, excessive alcohol intake and an unhealthy diet and lifestyle all destroy collagen and elastin in the dermis and cause the skin to loosen and sag. Although it is located beneath the epidermis, it is changed to the dermis that causes the outer skin to wrinkle and lose elasticity. As we grow older, the amount of fat found in our lower layer of skin decreases, our glands produce less oil, and collagen and elastin fibers lose their elasticity. The natural process of cell reproduction in the dermal layer also decreases as we grow older, resulting in a slower rejuvenation of our skin cells.

How It Works

Forever Young BBL & Forever Young + BBL treats a wide variety of conditions. For skin rejuvenation, Forever Young BBL removes age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels and more.

  • Step 1: Base Pass – addresses the overall appearance of the skin
  • Step 2: corrective vascular pass – addresses any small visible vessels, telangiectasias or flushing
  • Step 3: corrective pigment pass – corrects pigmented lesions and other pigmentation issues
  • Step 4: optional SkinTyte pass – provides deep bulk heating to stimulate the tissue at a deep level.

Pre Treatment

We’ll first clean the area of skin that we will be treating. For male clients, you’ll need to shave in order for us to treat your lower face. Gel will be applied to your canvas.

Post Treatment

AVOID

  • Use of topical skin care products containing retin-A, retinol, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid for 1 week
  • Prolonged sun exposure is to be avoided for 4 weeks after treatment

EXPECT

  • Intense burning, redness, warmth, and a sunburned sensation are normal responses following BBL treatments
  • The discomfort and redness generally last 2-4 hours after the procedure
  • Some patients will wake up with facial swelling, particularly around the eyes for several days following the treatment. This is normal and usually resolves within 3-5 days.

Notify us of any concerns (blistering, excessive redness/swelling, etc.)

FAQ

How does SkinTyte tighten the skin?

The Sciton SkinTyte system delivers infrared light deep into the dermis.

The heat from the special light causes the collagen and elastic fibers to shrink and tighten. Plus it stimulates the remodeling of the collagen. The remodeled collagen helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring elasticity to sagging skin.

Are SkinTyte treatments safe?

SkinTyte system is FDA-approved and documented to be safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of other systems because it is highly selective and more advanced in targeting collagen and elastic fibers in your loose skin. Patients experience mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment. This will last only a short time. Since the SkinTyte procedure is noninvasive, you can resume your normal activities immediately following treatment.
