Your skin is the largest organ in your body, as well as one of the most versatile. It’s responsible for a wide variety of functions such as regulating your temperature, protecting you from external threats like diseases, the elements, and germs, and allowing you to feel and touch.
The 19 million skin cells, 1,000 nerve endings, 650 sweat glands, and 20 blood vessels that make up just an inch of your skin work tirelessly to prevent damage from the outside world, produce hair, and so much more.
But sadly, your skin is also a part of your body that’s frequently damaged, resulting in many different problems including loose and saggy skin. If you’re struggling with this problem, laser treatments like Sciton® Skintyte® can make a difference in restoring tightness and firmness to your skin.
If you live in the Denver, Colorado, Chicago, Illinois, San Diego, California, or Tampa, Florida, area, and you struggle with loose and sagging skin, the experienced team at Ice Cave Body Sculpting can help.
Let’s examine the benefits of this treatment by looking at the reasons people struggle with loose skin and how Skintyte helps make skin firmer.
Your skin is made up of multiple layers: the outer layer (epidermis) the middle layer (dermis), and the bottom, or fatty, layer (hypodermis). The proteins that help form and maintain the structure of your skin are collagen and elastin, and the loss of these proteins in your dermis leads to sagging or loose skin.
Aging is a very common reason for these skin changes, but there are many others, including weight loss, illness, pregnancy, and a rare connective tissue condition known as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS).
This treatment employs a unique way of transmitting infrared light (often used under names like red light therapy, low-level laser therapy, and cold laser therapy) to penetrate the layers of your skin to produce heat and stimulate the production of collagen to help firm up your skin.
Infrared light is the best light to get through tissue and is more easily absorbed into the sections of cells that take in light energy, so it’s ideal for this purpose. Skintyte works in swift, gentle pulses to promote collagen and trigger the healing process in your skin. The result improves a range of problems from severe wrinkles to moderate loose skin.
This procedure requires no anesthetic, takes 30 minutes to improve your skin (with 20 minutes of recovery time), only requires up to five treatments, and can last for up to a year.
To tighten the skin on your belly, buttocks, and more, Skintyte is the method to use, and we can help you achieve the look you desire. If you’re ready to see the difference, make an appointment with the team at Ice Cave Body Sculpting. Call our location closest to you or book a visit online today.
