FAT REDUCTION – TIGHTSCULPTINGTM
LIST OF TREATMENTS
Loved among celebrity circles, the clinically proven technologies offer safe and effective body contouring and circumference reduction. Consult our experts at The Alchemist Laser Clinic about body sculpting Ottawa services.
TightSculptingTM is a laser fat reduction procedure that allows the non-invasive removal of localised fat deposits without having to undergo an invasive surgical procedure such as liposuction. Laser fat reduction, employs the use of Nd:YAG laser energy to destroy fat cells. In the TightSculptingTM treatment, the laser generates targeted heat in the superficial fat layer to melt fat cells leading to their destruction. The Nd:YAG laser is administered through a specialised laser scanner that uses 1064nm laser energy to gently heat up and destroy fat cells in a process known as lipolysis. Applying heat to the fat cells leads to fat cell death. The dead fat cells are then removed from the body via the natural flushing action of the body’s lymphatic system after the treatment. TightSculptingTM was developed by Fotona, one of the industry’s leading manufacturers of aesthetic and medical lasers.
The Fotona4D laser treatment available at body sculpting Ottawa clinics is suitable for those who wish to improve their body contour and tighten the skin. This non-surgical treatment will leave you with a more sculpted appearance and smoother skin. ‘Love handles’ are a common area of concern for our patients. However other areas include:
We all know that sadly our skin’s firmness decreases with age, but skin laxity can occur for a number of reasons. Patients at our body sculpting Ottawa clinic, who have undergone weight loss can often be left with loose skin that diet and exercise just cannot shift and indeed after pregnancy we can be left with residual skin laxity as well as stretch marks.
HOW IT WORKS
Fotona4D laser TightSculptingTM is non-invasive. This means that there is no downtime post treatment, so patients can drive away from the clinic and resume their normal day to day activities. It is a discrete treatment; the procedure is non-ablative and does not cause bruising. No tell-tell signs at all that anything has been done are visible when you trust our body sculpting Ottawa clinic.
It just keeps getting better and better too! As Fotona4D laser TightSculptingTM works on reducing fat and stimulating new collagen growth, it is recommended that patients undergo a course of treatments with each session building on the last one at our body sculpting Ottawa clinic. Maximum results are achieved over time as new collagen grows and fat cells are destroyed. The treatment will help give patients a new found confidence that is long-lasting.
The treatment powered by the Fotona4D laser is completed in two phases.
Phase 1: gives deep connective tissue tightening and fat reduction. Fotona4D laser energy is delivered to fat cells, which are then stimulated and heated safely and comfortably. Once broken down, fat is naturally dispersed by the body.
Phase 2: focuses on tightening the deep mid and superficial layers of collagen using a safe laser technique that causes no trauma to the skin. This is a unique way of stimulating collagen only available with Fotona lasers like the Fotona4D laser. The energy from the laser tightens the existing collagen fibers as well as stimulating the production of new collagen, neocollagenesis. This will result in effective and lasting tightening of the skin.
For some, both phases are not required and the second skin tightening phase can be performed as a stand-alone treatment using the Fotona4D laser. For patients undergoing fat reduction, we will take and record measurements of the area being treated before and after the session. Patients at our body sculpting Ottawa clinic will often see a significant loss in their overall measurements before even leaving the clinic at their first session!
Patients will notice a reduction in fat as well as an improvement in skin laxity, smoother texture and overall a healthier more youthful appearance of the areas treated through TightSculptingTM.
Cool air and (if required) topical local anesthetic (a cream) can be applied to ensure the correct temperature is achieved and patients are at their most comfortable. The skin will feel warm and may appear flushed during treatment using Fotona4D laser, but this settles down quickly often before patients have left the treatment room.
Treatment times will vary depending on the TightSculptingTM treatment area, but can generally vary between 1-3 hours. As previously stated, many patients can see an improvement in skin texture and tone at the first session but we do recommend the full course of treatments at our body sculpting Ottawa clinic for optimal results that are long lasting.
- Great customer service, very thorough during the consultation. Would recommend to anyone looking into laser hair removal.
Maryem absolutely AMAZING! I love how she considers all aspects of your skin, pigment and hair during your consultation and gives you an honest and educated opinion on whether laser hair removal will be right for you. I did my legs with her 2 YEARS ago and now I don't even have to think about picking up a razor (which was something I'd have to do every other day)! My legs are now so smooth and the "strawberry legs" are GONE! I love how she takes her time to ensure that you are comfortable at every step of the way during each session which makes for such a fun and welcoming environment. She is so easy to talk to and so flexible with appointments. I loved my results so much that I am going back to get more areas done! Thank you Maryem! 🙂
I am halfway through completing my sessions and I have seen great results already. Maryem is so accommodating to my busy schedule, she has later appointments (and that's important to me as a mom). She provided me with a great set of information before beginning and did her testing before my first session. She does her treatments with so much care, and listens to her clients. It's a private space and we also have great conversation on top of it all! I will update my review once treatment is complete, but so far my hair removal time has been reduced drastically since I do not have to do it as much!
Maryem is great! She’s amazing at what she does and never makes promises she can’t keep. From the beginning she was honest about the results I could expect. She’s very thorough and never rushes through your appointment. She has a way of making you feel extremely comfortable in what could sometimes be an uncomfortable situation. She genuinely loves what she does and you can tell. I would 100% recommend her to my friends and family or anyone looking for laser hair removal services.
