non-invasive BODY CONTOURING - Tight Sculpting?

what is tight sculpting?

Fotona TightSculpting is a non-invasive medical cosmetic procedure designed to improve body contours and tighten the skin using advanced laser technology. It’s a versatile treatment that targets both fat reduction and skin tightening in specific areas of the body.

how is tight sculpting performed?

The procedure is carried out using the proprietary Fotona laser technology, which combines two distinct laser wavelengths: Nd:YAG and Er:YAG.

The Nd:YAG laser penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, targeting fat cells and promoting collagen production. This can lead to a reduction in fat volume and an overall improvement in skin elasticity. The Er:YAG laser, on the other hand, focuses on the superficial layers of the skin, helping to enhance its texture and tighten it further.

During the treatment, the laser energy is delivered to the targeted areas, where it works to heat up the underlying tissues. This controlled heating prompts the body’s natural healing processes, including collagen remodeling. 

Over time, the treated area may show a reduction in localized fat and a noticeable improvement in skin firmness. Typically 3-6 treatments are recommended and maintenance treatments every 12-48 months ensure continued collagen stimulation to counter the natural aging process, keeping skin firm and retaining a youthful appearance.

How is tight sculpting different from cool sculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that freezes targeted fat cells to the point of destruction. It is based on the principle of cryolipolysis, where fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than surrounding tissues. During the treatment, a device is placed on the target area, and controlled cooling is applied. The fat cells freeze and eventually undergo a natural process of elimination from the body over the following weeks and months. CoolSculpting is primarily focused on reducing localized fat pockets and is not designed to tighten the skin.  With Cool Sculping there is a potential risk of paradoxical increase in fat formation.  With Tight Sculpting, there is no risk of ending up with more fat and there is no need to adhere to a strict diet. 

What areas of the body can Tightsculpting be performed on?

One of the advantages of Fotona TightSculpting is its ability to treat various body areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and even the face. The treatment is relatively comfortable for most patients and involves minimal downtime.

    What can I expect during recovery from tight sculpting?

    After Tight Sculpting procedure, you may notice that you feel more tired than usual in the first 24-48 hours.  This is due to release of ketones which area a by-product as fat is broken down.  Be sure to drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and also accelerate the process of elimination of fatty acids and ketones from the body.
