Skin Tightening – Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Sciton Profile has introduced the skin tightening (ST) module on its BBL (broad band light or intense pulsed light) machine. Skin Tightening reduces one’s appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen is a protein molecule that is found in the skin, muscles, tendons and bones and provides basic structural support. With age, collagen is gradually lost in the mid-layers of the skin causing deterioration and deflation, causing facial lines, sagging and wrinkles.
There are all kinds of modalities on the market to stimulate collagen production by putting heat into the tissues. IPL, BBL, Thermage, Titan and ST to name a few. None of these procedures are a replacement for a surgical face lift but these procedures definitely help, especially in early stages of skin aging.
ST’s prolonged heating action penetrates to the collagen and causes it to contract and tightens it. New collagen production is triggered over the following six months. Besides the initial tightening, the full impact will be seen over the next two to six months because new collagen is still being produced.

Labia Majora Augmentation
Labia majora augmentation is another common medical esthetics procedure. The outer lips of the vulva become deflated and lax with age, pregnancy and weight loss. Labia majora aging appears to be similar to facial aging, with cosmetic deterioration being caused by loss of deep subcutaneous fat, collagen degradation, and hormonal fatty redistribution. With decreased projection of the majora outside of the minora, the minora actually appears to protrude more. Our skin tightening module is a collogen stimulator and is perfect for treating the labia majora and bringing back the ‘plumpness’ to the area.
