TightSculpting®-Laser Body Sculpting and Skin Tightening
As our skin ages, natural collagen production diminishes, leading to wrinkles and increased laxity. Our laser skin tightening treatment is a revolutionary solution for treating laxity of the skin, and diminishing wrinkles. In this treatment, the superficial layers of the skin are gently resurfaced, resulting in tighter skin and greater balance in texture and tone. The applied energy from the laser heats collagen under the skin, initiating the process of neocollagenesis, and promoting the body’s natural processes to effectively heal itself. As new collagen begins to form, it will replace the collagen that has been lost through aging, and the skin will gradually become softer and smoother. An additional benefit of neocollagenesis is that the skin contracts, and the production of new, healthy, skin cells is initiated. If you are seeking a natural way to achieve these kinds of results, this could be the right procedure for you. The treatment is effective on most areas of the body and requires little to no downtime. Patients with visible signs of aging in the skin can benefit greatly from this treatment. Most patients require more than one treatment, spaced around one month apart, with maintenance treatments one to two times per year.
What is TightSculpting®?
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, with no downtime required for your patient.
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.

Before & After
What to Expect from Treatment
We believe in making your journey as comfortable as possible. Every patient is unique and has different pain and anxiety triggers. We offer a variety of ways of managing any discomfort related to treatments including ice, topical numbing and the latest in short-acting analgesics called Nitronox™. Nitronox delivers a safe and reliable dosage of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen via a mouthpiece similar to the ones used in dental offices that will immediately reduce pain and anxiety associated with any treatments without any associated drowsiness, side effects or downtime. The effects of the system last only a short period of time and patients are able to safely drive home after their visit.
