TightSculpting™ is a unique non-invasive laser treatment that combines two procedures in one for sculpting and skin tightening on all body areas. A laser gently and safely heats the target tissue remodeling, and rejuvenating the surrounding area. At the same time, the laser tightens the skin by generating new collagen, resulting in an overall improvement of contour laxity and elasticity in the treated areas.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
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 the metabolism of fat cells, leaving the epidermis intact. 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.
TWO PROCEDURES IN ONE
TightSculpting™ is a unique, non-invasive treatment that combines two procedures in one; skin tightening, and sculpting. To achieve the same results as TightSculpting, other treatments require you to undergo two separate procedures; one to target specific tissue, 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.
What Can I Expect From The Treatment?
Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following, you may experience some redness or minor swelling that will diminsh after a few hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately, however, if you elect to have a more aggressive treatment, you may experience a day or two of redness.
How is TIghtSculpting's Heating Method Different from Other Sculpting Options that Use Cooling Methods?
Unlike cooling methods that only address fat, hreating not only reduces fat, but also tightens the skin for full contouring treatment. The laser safely and rapidly heats up your skin, resulting in tightened and rejuvenated treatment area.
What Does It Feel Like?
The first part of the treatment consists of gentle deep heating over the desired area. Initially, you may feel a gradual warming and after a few minutes you may experience some very brief ot 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 day or two.
How Long Dose It Take To See Results?
Results will vary with every individual. Most patients will see immediate tightening followed b a gradual improvement in contour as your newly refreshed skin tightens. Depending on your goals, additional treatment may be recommended.
