How it works
Fotona TightSculpting treatments use a unique two-step laser system to reduce fat and tighten the skin.
Step 1: Nd:YAG PIANO Pulse Mode
The first step of Fotona TightSculpting treatments is designed to sculpt the body through fat reduction. This step uses the Fotona Nd:YAG PIANO Pulse Mode to penetrate deep into the skin in order to stimulate the metabolism of fat cells. By delivering bulk heating to unwanted fat cells, they are broken down and naturally removed from the body.
Step 2: Er:YAG SMOOTH Pulse Mode
The second step of Fotona TightSculpting treatments aims to improve skin laxity. The Er:YAG SMOOTH Pulse Mode further heats the skin’s deeper layers to contract collagen fibres for an instant tightening effect. Furthermore, this step works to stimulate collagen production, improving skin thickness and firmness over time.
What to expect
Prior to your treatment, we recommend having a consultation at Medical Aesthetics to discuss your aesthetic concerns and procedure expectations, after which we can create a treatment plan.
Fotona TightSculpting treatments take between 20 and 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated. As the laser moves over the treated area, you may experience a warming sensation, however this will dissipate shortly after treatment. Overall, treatments are generally described as being quite tolerable, meaning that no anaesthetic is required. After your Fotona TightSculpting treatment, you are immediately free to resume your regular activities.
