Tightsculpting – Laser Body Sculpting and Skin Tightening
What is Tightsculpting?
Tightsculpting is a treatment that combines two procedures in on to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten the skin. Using the Fotona SP Dynamis laser, the area of unwanted fat is heated gently and safely to the point of cell death and these cells are then processed and eliminated from the body. At the same time the laser tightens the skin by generating new collagen, resulting in an overall improvement of contour laxity and elasticity in the treated areas.
How can laser get rid of fat cells?
The laser safely and rapidly heats up your skin, targeting its energy to the level beneath your skin where the fat exists. Your fat is heated by the laser energy causing it to break down and die. Once the fat is affected and eliminated it is gone for good as these adipose cells will no longer be able to store fat.
What can I expect from treatment?
Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during 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 following treatment.
Where does the fat go?
After the treatment, the fat breaks down and is either naturally processed by the body or eliminated from the body altogether. It is recommended that a short burst of exercise is undertaken for 20mins post treatment to help speed up the process of elimination of fats.
What does it feel like?
The first part of treatment consists of deep heating over the desired treatment area. Initially you may feel a gradual warming and after a few minutes you will feel some hot sensations that are brief in the treatment area. The overall sensation is like a hot stone massage or 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 red for a few days.
How long does it take to see results?
As with all laser and cosmetic treatments, results vary from person to person. Most patients will experience an immediate tightening affect followed by a gradual contour change as the fat breaks down. Most people require multiple treatments usually between 4-8 in total in order to achieve the result they are looking for. Treatments can be done fortnightly or monthly depending on budget and time constraints.
