Skin Tyte works by depositing infrared heat deep into the dermis, which is where our collagen and elastin fibers are found. The immediate response to the infrared heat exposure is a contraction of the collagen and elastin fibers. Longer term, fibroblasts (cells that make collagen) are activated which stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin in response to wound-healing which continues to take place for up to 6 months after the initial heating. This tissue remodeling results in a thickening of the dermis and shrinking of elastin fibers plus the contraction of collagen, resulting in the improvement of the skin’s firmness.
Skin Tyte 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, hands, abdomen and chest. Most individuals require 3-6 sessions with each session spaced at an interval of 2-4 weeks.
Aging, sun damage from UV light, smoking, stress, excessive alcohol intake and an unhealthy diet and lifestyle all contribute to the degradation of collagen and elastin in the dermis which over time, will cause the skin to loosen and sag.
Frequently Asked Questions
+ How does Skin Tyte 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.
+ Where are the best results achieved?
The best results are in the face and neck area. Specifically the upper jaw, lower jaw, and nasolabial folds.
Skin Tyte is a also a great option to reduce the appearance of pore size if it is due to loss of elasticity. Generally pores appear larger due to loss of elasticity or congestion.
+ How frequently should I come in for the Skin Tyte treatments?
We recommend a series of 3-6 performed at 2-4 week intervals. Then you can come in every few months for a maintenance session.
+ Are Skin Tyte 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.

"After a disappointing experience at what was previously my favourite spa (which will remain nameless) I decided to revisit SKN Clinic for some treatments. I wish I'd done it sooner. My most recent two visits were equally amazing. I've had microdermabrasion, a medi facial + skin tyte treatment.
After my recent treatment, I was pleasantly surprised with a couple samples of their new skincare line. I LOVE it. I've never used oils on my face, but they are making a huge difference in my skin this winter. I'm excited to see the results of my upcoming photofacial.
Since I'm creeping up on 43, I've decided to take my skincare regime to the next level. SKN offers one on one attention and a level of expertise that I haven't found elsewhere. I'm really happy to say SKN Clinic is my new 'favourite' spa for skin care."
"Was in over the weekend for BBL, neck Skin Tyte and cosmetic acupuncture. I was made to feel welcome right away; everyone was friendly, professional and had a great sense of humour. I was at first skeptical of the effectiveness, but I've noticed a big difference with my neck in a day. Many have also commented that I look rested and am glowing. If the results keep up, I'll definitely be back."
