FotonaTightSculpting Pre and Post Care


  1. Fotona™ TightSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that takes 1-2 hours per treatment area.

  2. No topical anaesthesia or pain medication is required.

  3. Typically, there is no recovery time after TightSculpting™ . Most patients return to their regular daily routine, including work and working out, immediately after the procedure.

  4. You may not be pregnant for any treatment.

  5. Sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanning products must be avoided for 2 weeks before and after the treatment. Treatment within 2 weeks of active tanning (natural sunlight, artificial tanning booths, or sunless tanning products) may result in hypopigmentation (white spots) or hyperpigmentation (dark spots) that may not clear for several months or may even be permanent.

  6. If there is dark hair or prevalent vellus hair (peach fuzz) in the treatment area, you must shave the hair 12-24 hours prior to your appointment.

  7. Accutane and any other photosensitizing medication should be discontinued for a period of at least 6 months prior to receiving treatment and should not be used during your course of treatment.

  8. Waxing and/or use of chemical depilatories must be avoided for 1-2 weeks prior and after the treatment.

  9. Notify the provider of any tattoos, including cosmetic tattooing, in the vicinity of the area to be treated as tattoos must be avoided.

  10. During the course of your treatments, notify our staff of any changes to your medical history, health status, or personal activities that may be relevant to your treatment.


  1. During the course of your treatment your feedback is crucial in order for us to determine the proper and most effective treatment protocols for you. Our staff is always available to respond to any questions, concerns, or comments you may have.

  2. Procedure-specific protective eye wear will be worn by patient and all personnel in the treatment room during the procedure. Your provider will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety.

  3. The entire appointment generally takes about an hour. Fotona TightSculpting™ is a comfortable treatment with virtually no pain and very little to no downtime.


  1. Immediately following Fotona TightSculpting the skin may appear to be flushed. Severity of redness will depend on how aggressively the treatment was performed. The skin may feel tight, dry, and sensitive to the touch. Dry skin may slough off within 3-7 days. There is also a possibility of short-term side effects such as itching, swelling, and discomfort of the treated area. These effects may last up to one week after treatment.

  2. No exercise that causes sweating , Jacuzzi, Sauna, or steam baths if any skin irritation exists.

  3. Sun exposure and the use of tanning beds must be avoided for at least 2 weeks after your treatment. We recommend physical avoidance of the sun in all treated areas, a protective hat and full spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ or higher.

  4. Do not use exfoliating medications, chemicals, or products on the treated areas for at least 1 week.

  5. For best results and efficacy, we recommend a series of 6-8 treatment s administered at 3-4 week intervals.

  6. It is recommended to stay hydrated and to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.

  7. Weight gain will prevent you from appreciating your full results. We encourage you to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after your procedure.
