Get to Know Fotona TightSculpting™ + What to Expect From Your Treatment

Interested in body sculpting and skin tightening? We can do that!

If the body gave out an award for stubbornness, it would probably go to our fat cells. We can eat like angels, hit the gym daily, and still have one or two areas where the fat just doesn’t let go. That’s where technology comes in.

At Honolulu Med Spa, we’re excited to be the first to offer Fotona TightSculpting™—a revolutionary laser treatment that both removes fat and tightens skin. This two-in-one procedure is fast and completely safe, and doesn’t involve any pain or downtime. Interested? Read on for all the answers to your TightSculpting™ questions.

What is TightSculpting™?

Fotona TightSculpting™ is a non-invasive treatment for body sculpting and skin tightening. The procedure has two parts. In the first, the long Nd: YAG PIANO®  pulse laser targets adipose tissue beneath the surface of your skin, sending subtle heated energy that stimulates adipocyte (fat) cell metabolism. The second part of the procedure uses the Er:YAG SMOOTH® wavelength to heat surface tissue to initiate collagen remodeling and new collagen growth, improving your skin’s laxity.

What benefits can you expect?

TightSculpting™ is designed to be an effective way to quickly achieve the shape you want. Everyone is different, but most patients experience immediate tightening in the treated area. In the days and weeks that follow, you should notice improvement in contour and tighter elasticity as your newly refreshed skin develops.

What happens during and after the procedure?

In the first part of the treatment, you’ll likely feel some gradual warming, and maybe short hot sensations in the area being treated. In the second part when the laser heats the skin superficially, the sensations might be a little warmer, but they’ll still be controlled and tolerable. The Fotona machine we use has an innovative temperature monitor that lets us effectively target specific tissue and keep you comfortable at all times. In fact, many patients describe the feeling similar to that of a warm massage.

After the treatment, your skin might be slightly pink and warm to the touch. If there’s any redness, it will go away in a day or two, and you can go about your regular activities right away.

How does TightSculpting™ compare with other laser treatments?

One of the biggest pros for TightSculpting™ is that unlike laser lipolysis, it’s non-invasive which means fewer possible complications. There’s no downtime or any need to take painkillers. Compared with Venus, which uses radio frequency for gentle skin tightening, TightSculpting™ is more advanced system for advanced skin tightening. Both are effective and it will likely depend on your needs, along with the guidance of your Honolulu MedSpa bodyscultping consultant, to determine which is most appropriate based on your individual goals.

Another advantage of TightSculpting™ is that it can be a faster process than previous options. Before you had to undergo one procedure to target tissue and another to tighten skin, sometimes waiting months in between. With TightSculpting™ these procedures are combined to give you quicker, more immediate results.
