HotScultping is a unique procedure that uses lasers to safely and comfortably focus energy to the fat beneath the skin. The laser heats the fat causing natural cell death, while leaving the skin unharmed. As the fat breaks down, your body either naturally processed it or eliminates it. During the same treatment, heat from the laser contracts the collagen fibers to tighten your skin and rejuvenate the surface.
What Is Fotona HotSculpting?
HotSculpting is a unique, non-invasive treatment that combines two procedures in one; the reduction of fat and tightening of skin. To achieve the same results as HotSculpting, other treatments require you to undergo two separate procedures; one to reduce fat, with patients waiting months for results and another later on to tighten the skin. This extends the time it takes to achieve your ideal shape. With TightSculpting, these procedures are combined to give you quicker, more immediate results.
How Does Fotona HotSculpting Work?
The HotSculpting 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, some of the targeted fat cells will die. TightSculpting uses focused energy to heat the fat causing natural cell death while leaving the skin unharmed.
As the fat cells break down, your body either naturally processes it or eliminates the damaged cells as waste. During the same treatment, the heat from the laser contracts fibers to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. By delivering laser energy into the right depths of skin, a natural response triggers which is proven to create new collagen production. This results in overall improvement of the contour laxity and elasticity of the skin in the treated area.
Will the Fotona HotSculpting Laser Hurt?
Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the 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 immediately following the treatment. After the treatment, the fat breaks down and is either naturally processed by the body or eliminated from the body all together
The first part of the treatment consists of deep heating over the desired treatment area. Initially you may feel a gradual warming sensation and after a few minutes you may experience some very brief hot sensations in the treatment area.The overall sensation can be similar to a hot stone massage or a 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 even red for a few days.
