Sciton Introduces SkinTyte II™ For Fast and Effective Tissue Heating Without Consumables

PALO ALTO, Calif., October 19, 2011 – Sciton, a leading manufacturer of high-quality custom, modular, multi-application medical laser and light systems in the aesthetic medical market, announces the introduction of the SkinTyte II for rapid and effective non-invasive tissue heating.

The SkinTyte II speeds up and optimizes the popular SkinTyte procedure by utilizing visible and infrared light energy tailored for skin types I-VI. It can be used on many parts of the body and popular areas include the cheeks, chin, jawlines, neck, abdomen, and arms. “SkinTyte II produces results that are as good or better than the original SkinTyte procedure, but in one-half or one-third of the time,” says Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology in Los Gatos, California. “A tissue firming procedure on a larger zone like the abdomen can take 30 minutes to an hour with other technologies. We can now get high-quality results in 15 to 20 minutes with SkinTyte II.”

“Developed in conjunction with a panel of distinguished dermatologists and cosmetic physicians, SkinTyte II is the latest advancement with our SkinTyte product,” stated Dan Negus, Ph.D., President of Sciton. “It represents Sciton’s commitment to our customers, their patients, and our employees to continuously improve and regularly bring to market safe, clinically effective devices with no consumables,” continued Dr. Negus.

SkinTyte II is available on the JOULE and BBLs expandable platforms. Both systems offer the option to add additional modules to treat many other indications, such as acne, permanent hair reduction, pigmented lesions, scar revision, skin texture improvement, and vascular lesions. This, combined with Sciton’s “no consumables” approach, means physicians enjoy a maximum return on investment. It is just one of the reasons why Sciton was ranked as the #1 aesthetic laser device manufacturer in the September 2011 Physician Report published by Medical Spa MD.
