Body contouring is any of several different procedures used to reshape the body by addressing excess skin and fat deposits. It is often done after the patient has lost a lot of weight. While massive weight loss can be beneficial, there are limits to the elasticity of the skin and other tissues, and they are, thus, unable to conform to the patient’s new and smaller physique. Thankfully, laser body contouring exists, and it could work for you.
What is TightSculpting?
TightSculpting is a form of laser body contouring. It is far less invasive than conventional body contouring, for it does not involve surgery. TightSculpting can be done on many parts of the body.
TightSculpting uses a dual laser made by a company called Fotona. The laser can reduce fat and tighten the skin, and it emits two wavelengths. The first is an Nd:YAG wavelength that penetrates deep into the skin to reach the fat cells, which it heats up and destroys. The heat from the Nd:YAG also stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its structure and keeps it supple. The second laser is an Er:YAG laser that immediately makes the skin tighter.
Most patients need more than one treatment to get the desired results, and the treatments can be spaced days or weeks apart, depending on the situation. There is no recovery time with this laser body contouring procedure.
