Sciton’s SkinTyte™ Treatment Featured on The Doctors as A “New Body Breakthrough”

PALO ALTO, Calif. – May 7, 2010 — Sciton, a manufacturer of high-quality laser and light systems in the aesthetic medical market, announced today that their SkinTyte was featured on The Doctors on Thursday, May 6, 2010 as a “new body breakthrough” for dramatic improvement in skin laxity, texture, and overall cosmetic improvement.

On the program, Launa Stone, R.N., owner of Launa Stone Med-Spa, Calabasas CA, performed a SkinTyte treatment on a patient’s neck. After only three treatments with non-invasive SkinTyte, the patient, Lorilei, achieved noticeable improvement in the skin laxity on her neck. Launa chose to use the SkinTyte light device due to the excellent results she has seen with her patients, including increased consistency of results and high patient satisfaction and comfort.

During the broadcast, Launa Stone described the SkinTyte treatment as, “the newest technology. This is the future.” She added, “We are actually making collagen. It works really well for thin, loose, lax, ageing skin.”

The Doctors characterized SkinTyte as a way to tighten your “turkey gobbler”. According to the host, Dr. Drew Orden, SkinTyte is a “new wrinkle buster skin tightening technique.”

“Properly selected patients can expect both comfortable treatment and visible skin tightening results with the SkinTyte treatment,” said Launa Stone, RN. “I am most impressed with the fact that I can safely treat all skin types with SkinTyte, addressing skin laxity on the face, neck, chest, abdomen, arms, and legs.”

SkinTyte utilises infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen while protecting the entire treated area with continuous sapphire contact cooling. The uniform heating effectively targets the desired area and immediately stimulates collagen contraction and remodeling. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process and a new foundation of collagen is created, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
