PRE-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS (click here)
The uniquely gentle and effective approach of laser remodeling takes anti-aging technology to a new level - a revolutionary way to tighten skin without the down time and expense of surgery. The treatment requires no injections and leaves no lingering redness or tenderness. The laser light pulse stimulates the growth of collagen fibroblasts deep in the dermis. As these little collagen factories come to life and begin to reproduce, your skin will rebuild from the inside. The result is younger looking skin and an almost "mini face-lift." You will begin to notice smoother, younger looking skin immediately; full effects of the treatment are seen in three months. Best results require 3-5 treatments, 4 weeks apart.
BBL™, patented and FDA-approved technology, emits a non-coherent, broad spectrum light that is attracted to cells with abnormal amounts of color. The light is absorbed by melanin or hemoglobin. The heat injures the abnormally pigmented cells resulting in a more evenly toned complexion.
Broad Band Light (BBL) can effectively treat:
- Sun Damage
- Age Spots, Brown Spots, & Freckles
- Broken Capillaries
- Fine Wrinkles
- Redness & Flushing
- Loose Skin
- Enlarged Pores
An internal cooling mechanism in the hand piece makes treatments more comfortable than traditional pulsed light systems. BBL™ technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent results in photo rejuvenation therapy. Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sun light. The most popular treatments are for the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
The number of treatments you will need with the BBL™ depends on the patient’s skin type, level of depth of lesion, and expected outcome. For maximum benefit three to five treatments, three to four weeks apart is recommended. You may benefit from additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition. BBL™ treatments are cumulative, and can take up to three months to see the final result. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin's condition and your desired results.
You will be sensitive to ultra-violet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. A sunscreen, preferably with zinc oxide, should be used whenever exposed to UV rays or outside. A complementary application of Youngblood™ mineral cosmetics, used to reduce redness and promote healing, will be provided after your treatment.
Questions & Answers
What is SkinTyte?
The SkinTyte treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes Sciton's BBL pulsed light technology to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
How does SkinTyte work?
The SkinTyte procedure utilizes a broadband of light energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also initiates the body's natural healing process which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing the patient a comfortable and safe procedure.
What is the treatment like?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, actual time will depend on the area treated.
What should I expect after treatment?
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area, although most clients notice little to no redness and more of a sunburn sensation immediately after treatment, possibly continuing into the next day. Since the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
What results should I expect?
The SkinTyte procedure is not a substitute for a face-lift and results may vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
What areas can be treated?
SkinTyte treatments are 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, abdomen, and arms. You should consult with your technician regarding the treatment options that are best for you.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of 2-4 treatments spaced a month apart is typical of most patients. Your physician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
What aftercare do I need?
No special skincare regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen. Your technician can also recommend an at home skin care regimen to promote results and to better maintain results.
