Redefine Your Neckline with SkinTyte II™


Find yourself doing “the lift” in the mirror nowadays to pull up your skin to a more youthful positioning?  Or, maybe you hate the way the skin on your neck now looks crepey and uneven in texture?  If so, you’re not alone!  Over 325,000 Americans received some form of non-surgical laser assisting skin tightening in 2017 according to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report.  Thousands of us are on the hunt for non-surgical procedures that can firm, tighten and lift our skin without the cost or downtime associated with surgery.  SkinTyte II™ by Sciton Lasers is just that treatment!

What is SkinTyte II™ and how does it work?

SkinTyte II™ by Sciton® lasers is a gentle, yet effective light-based treatment that utilizes targeted infrared energy to safely heat your skin to a therapeutic level that we now know stimulates collagen production.  As a result, the surface of the skin experiences subtle contraction and deeper levels respond by remodeling collagen deep in the dermis leading to thicker and firmer skin.

At around the age of 27, our collagen and elastin production decreases.  From that point on we may begin to notice a loss of definition along our jawline, progressive sagging in our cheeks, and a loss of firmness on our neckline.  SkinTyte II™  gently heats the deeper layers of your skin as it simultaneously cools your skin’s surface to ensure a safe and comfortable treatment.  This heat triggers your body’s collagen production which continues for up to 3 months.  What’s even better is that it is all done without surgery or downtime!


How do I know if I’m a candidate for SkinTyte II™?

It’s important to note that SkinTyte II™ is NOT a replacement for a full surgical facelift or neck lift.  The goal of laser skin tightening is to noticeably improve the tightness, firmness, thickness and overall health and appearance of your skin, but do not respect the results of surgery.  The best candidates for this treatment have reasonably healthy skin that is just begging to show the signs of laxity and aging on the neckline, jawline, and mid-face.  Keep in mind that even though SkinTyte II™ is not a full-face lift, it has preventative benefits and, when done regularly, may offset the need for a facelift in the future!


What’s a SkinTyte II™ treatment like?

First, your provider will cleanse your skin to ensure that the laser light is evenly absorbed.  The infrared energy that SkinTyte II™ utilizes is emitted in a series of rapid pulses of bright light, so your eyes will be protected before your treatment begins.  Your provider will then apply a thin layer of cooling gel to your skin so that the laser handpiece can comfortably glide over your skin’s surface in a series of passes that will get progressively warmer.  Special attention will be given to key areas that have advanced laxity or aging.

The treatment is only about 30-45 minutes, and most patients find it very relaxing and even fall asleep!


What will my SkinTyte II™ results look like?  When do they set in?  How long will they last?

Most patients love how they look immediately after treatment because your skin’s circulation will be increased and your complexion will glow!  You’ll have a nice, firm, and tight feeling for several days which leads many patients to schedule their laser skin tightening around special events!

Because your collagen production will continue to be stimulated for up to three months after your treatment, full results are assessed at that three-month marker.  Although some patients see improvement with only one treatment, a series of 4 to 6 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart is always recommended for more impactful results.  Your results are dependent upon your skin and its initial state and ability to renew and rebuild.

Expect to see your full results from your SkinTyte II™ series three months after your last treatment.  Your results can last several years, but most practices encourage patients to maintain with an annual treatment, or come in quarterly to enjoy a continued improvement in your skin’s firmness, tightness, and overall youthfulness!


Do you love the idea of tighter, firmer, more youthful skin but don’t want to deal with any downtime?  SkinTyte II™ may be perfect for you!  Schedule a complimentary consultation with a Clinical Skin Therapeutics laser technician to discuss your options!
