Sciton® SkinTyte™ in San Francisco, CA

Tired, sagging skin keeping you down? Not anymore, thanks to an innovative new laser therapy performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock, right here in San Francisco and the Bay Area. SkinTyte™ is a one-of-a-kind laser skin tightening treatment that can produce remarkable results anywhere on the body.

What Is SkinTyte™?

SkinTyte™ is a unique laser treatment that helps tighten loose skin caused by aging or pregnancy. It is not as dramatic as a facelift or as invasive as injections. SkinTyte™ uses a heated laser to force the body to produce more collagen while tightening and toning the skin around the treatment area.

Benefits of SkinTyte™*

SkinTyte™ offers a number of benefits including the following:

  • Improved collagen production, leading to softer, more toned skin.
  • Noticeable improvement in skin’s tightness and volume.


How Is SkinTyte™ Performed?

SkinTyte™ is a unique laser therapy that can help restructure the skin’s inner elasticity. A laser is passed over the area along with a gentle cooling sensation to help you feel more comfortable and to minimize redness from the laser treatment. You will wear eye protection during the treatment and you will ideally receive 2-5 treatments at 2-4 week intervals, giving your skin plenty of time to heal and produce visibly renewed layers.

Preparing for SkinTyte™

As with many laser procedures, your best preparation would be to avoid extensive UV exposure for three weeks prior to your appointment. The most important points to keep in mind if you’re considering undergoing any kind of skin treatment is that no two treatments are alike and no two results are the same. Your results will depend on many factors including your overall health, the area being treated, and your body’s natural response to the treatment. Dr. Aycock takes patient comfort very seriously and will take the time to completely answer your questions and address your concerns.

SkinTyte™ Recovery*

Recovery varies from person to person, but downtime is generally minimal and there should be little discomfort. You may have some slight redness that will disappear within a few hours. SkinTyte™ is a non-invasive procedure, so you will have little to do in terms of recovery.

How Much Does SkinTyte™ Cost?

The cost of SkinTyte™ in San Francisco varies depending on the area being treated. Dr. Aycock provides convenient financing options, including CareCredit®; to help cover the cost of your treatment, and you may be approved in as little as an hour. Visa®, MasterCard®, and Discover® are also accepted, and you’ll enjoy a FREE CONSULTATION on your first visit to our office.

Is SkinTyte™ Right for Me?

SkinTyte™ may be the ideal procedure for you if you meet any of the following conditions:

  • You have a sagging neck or jawline, often referred to as a “turkey waddle”.
  • You want to improve areas previously treated with liposuction to achieve a more defined contour.
  • You want to help tighten and tone your skin after pregnancy.
