The SkinTyte® laser treatment is being used by Dr. Nichter to treat sun exposed areas such as the face, chest, neck, upper arms, hands, and breasts. He is also using it to improve scars and stretch marks.
The Sciton SkinTyte® uses broadband light with infrared technology to thicken the dermis and compacting the collagen while tricking the cells into acting more youthful, which ultimately results in vibrant, healthy more radiant skin.
Volume redistribution – loss of volume in some areas, fat pockets in other areas
Surface characteristics – sun exposure, acne, etc.
All three of these issues are evaluated by Dr. Nichter during the consultation and recommendations are made as to which procedure or combination of procedures will provide the best outcome. Treatment may include any one or more of the following: facelift, neck lift, fat transfer or fillers, liposuction, laser resurfacing, laser tightening, chemical peel, skin care regimen.

Dr. Nichter explains the benefits of using this laser to improve acne, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, and more. In most cases a patient will need 3-5 treatments to see maximum benefit, however this will vary depending on the severity of the skin issue. The Scion® BBL is done in the office with or without a topical numbing cream in just under 1 hour. No downtime.
Facial fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma are very popular options for improving lost volume and fine lines and wrinkles, however in some very rare cases a patient may not be pleased with the result from their treatment. Some fillers are reversible should a patient request to have the product removed. In the above video, Dr. Nichter explains this in further detail.
Dr. Nichter explains the risks and effects of smoking prior to and during recovery after plastic surgery. Smoking — specifically nicotine and carbon monoxide — impedes the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to tissues. As a result, the healing process after plastic surgery is negatively affected. Healing after plastic surgery has a significant effect on the quality of your result.
