Two Procedures In One
TightSculpting is a unique, non-invasive treatment that combines two procedures in one; skin tightening, and sculpting. To achieve the same results as TightSculpting, other treatments require you to undergo two separate procedures; one to target specific tissue*, with patients waiting months for results and another later on to tighten the skin. This extends the time it takes to achieve your ideal shape. With TightSculpting, these procedures are combined to give you quicker, more immediate results.
How does Fotona TightSculpting™ work?
Fotona TightSculpting™ is a unique dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser treatment for sculpting and skin tightening on all body areas. The exclusive delivery modes are used in concert for hyperthermic adipocyte destruction and collagen remodeling with exceptional results. The procedure is a fast, safe and effective non-invasive alternative to laser lipolysis.
1st step: Deep skin tightening and fat reduction with PIANO pulse
The unique, super long Nd:YAG pulse mode is designed for homogenous tissue heating comfortably, safely and rapidly, by concentrating energy delivery to subcutaneously stimulate metabolism of fat cells, leaving the epidermis intact. The PIANO® mode extends the pulse durations to the seconds regime, resulting in full-thickness bulk heating with an overall synergistic tightening effect.
2nd step: Improvement of skin surface laxity with SMOOTH pulse
The second stage consists of a revolutionary non-ablative Er:YAG SMOOTH® mode, ideal for skin tightening. The intense, controlled surface tissue heating stimulates collagen remodeling and initiates neocollagenesis. The effects result in an overall improvement of laxity and elasticity in the treatment areas.
Frequently Asked Questions
Each person is diff erent but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or minor swelling that will diminish after a few hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment, if you elect to have a more aggressive treatment, you may experience a day or two of redness.
The fi rst part of the treatment consists of deep heating over the desired treatment area. Initially you may feel a gradual warming and after a few minutes you may experience some very brief hot sensations in the treatment area. The overall sensation can be similar to a hot stone massage or a dry sauna. The second part involves more superficial heating. Depending on the treatment area, the heat generated is slightly more intense but still very tolerable. Post-treatment your skin will feel warm to the touch and may be pink or even red for a day or two.
Results will vary with every individual. Most patients will see immediate tightening followed by a gradual change in contour as your newly refreshed skin tightens. Depending on your desired results, you may require multiple treatments.
