About Laser Skin Tightening
The natural supply and production of elastin and collagen (the proteins that make the skin elastic and firm) begin to slow with age. This causes wrinkles and fine lines to appear on the face along with sagging skin in the body. For patients the Reno, Nevada area that have mild to moderate signs of aging on the body and face, Sciton SkinTyte II laser skin tightening system at Renovation Medical Spa can improve the appearance and health of the skin without surgery. Performed by the highly skilled staff of board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charles Virden, the SkinTyte treatment is fast, painless procedure that doesn't need time for recovery. The SkinTyte heats the deep layers of skin with safe broadband light to re-start the natural production of elastin and collagen in the skin. SkinTyte laser skin tightening treatments at Renovation are best for patients who want to avoid surgery and injections, but are willing to wait for gradual, natural improvements.

"I recently received two profrac laser treatments from Leah and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. The whole staff is incredibly welcoming and professional, Leah and Dr. Virden were incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable. When I expressed that I was a little nervous about what to expect with the procedure they both did their best to help me understand what was going to happen and what my experience would be, even providing a little laughter when I needed it to make me feel at ease. I couldn't be any happier with my experience than I am now."- A.A. / Yelp / Mar 07, 2019

Noninvasive laser skin tightening is best for patients who:
- Want to avoid surgery or another invasive procedure
- Are willing to wait several months for full results
- Want long-term improvements in the health and appearance of their skin
- Want subtle, natural-looking results
What to Expect
During the SkinTyte procedure, patients are treated in a private room. For added comfort and protection during the procedure, a cooling gel or numbing cream may be applied to the areas being treated. Most patients will feel a mild sensation during the treatment as the laser energy heats the skin. The length of the treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area, the condition of the skin, and the patient's goals. For optimal results, the face should receive at least 4 treatments over several weeks, while the body will need up to 15 sessions over several weeks. Maintenance sessions can be performed as needed to maintain the patient's results for several years.
Since no anesthesia is used, patients will be able to leave the office immediately after their treatment to resume their normal activities. Patients may notice the skin in the treated area is red or swollen, but this should subside in 2 - 3 weeks after the treatment. Some results may be visible right away, but full results will take several months to appear as the skin heals and re-builds itself. With proper post-treatment care, skin tightening results can last up to 2 years.
