With age, our skin tends to lose its structure, which causes it to become lax and begin to sag. Loss of elasticity in the skin can also cause unwanted deposits of fat to form and can cause the body to lose its contour. While there are several aesthetic treatments that can improve your body contour, many require invasive surgical procedures and lengthy recovery periods. If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to tighten and smooth your skin and improve your body contour, DermAesthetica Med Spa may have the body sculpting treatment for you! At DermAesthetica Med Spa, we use Fotona’s TightSculpting™ procedure for our non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring treatments.

What is TightSculpting™?
TightSculpting™ treatments can smooth and tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of fat deposits, improve the appearance of cellulite, and improve overall body contour.
This non-invasive, non-surgical body sculpting treatment uses dual wavelengths of laser energy to tighten the skin and eliminate unwanted deposits of fat. TightSculpting™ consists of two different stages. In the first stage, a Nd: YAG laser is used to create controlled heat to target and break down excess fat without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. Once the fat has been broken down, the body eliminates it through its natural waste elimination process. The second stage of a TightSculpting™ procedure uses a non-ablative laser, the Er: YAG SMOOTH®, to tone and tighten the superficial layer of the skin. The heat energy created by the laser stimulates the production of new collagen and tightens existing collagen fibers to improve the overall appearance and elasticity of the skin.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to achieve optimal results can vary from patient to patient. Most patients typically require between one and three treatments in order to achieve visible results. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve you desired results. Results may vary.
Is there any downtime?
Our body contouring treatments have little to no downtime associated with them. Some patients may experience some mild redness and tenderness, similar to a mild sunburn, following the treatment. This side effect typically subsides within 24 hours of the treatment.
Am I a candidate?
This body sculpting treatment is ideal for patients looking to smooth and tighten their skin and eliminate stubborn fat deposits in a non-surgical manner. Our body contouring treatments are not intended to be used as a weight-loss solution.
