Do you have stubborn areas of fat on your body that don’t go away no matter what you eat and how much you exercise? If so, a new body contouring technology called TightSculpting may provide the streamlined body that you want! This laser skin treatment targets fat pockets and sagging skin to provide tighter skin and body shaping without surgery. At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek, CA, Dr. Christine Lee offers a variety of body contouring and skin tightening procedures for patients and can help you choose the best treatment or combination of therapies for your needs.
TightSculpting uses two different lasers that perform different functions to give you great results from just one treatment modality.
- The first laser stimulates your fat cell metabolism but does not affect your skin, which leads to deep skin tightening and fat reduction
- The second laser tightens your skin’s surface and stimulates collagen production for firmer, tighter skin
The result from the TightSculpting procedure is better body contours and tighter skin with a reduced appearance of cellulite and fat. The level of results you can attain from this procedure has historically only been possible with surgery, but with TightSculpting, you will have minimal downtime and no incisions or scars.
What to expect during your procedure
Your TightSculpting treatment will involve two steps due to the two lasers being used. A qualified professional will use the TightSculpting device to move the lasers across the treatment area. You will not feel discomfort during the first laser treatment used to target your underlying fat cells because a cooling device is used to steadily blow cold air over the surface of your skin so you don’t feel any heat. The second laser is used to treat your skin’s surface, so a cooling machine cannot be used. You will feel some heat during this process, but your individual experience will vary. Some people find it pleasant, like a hot stone massage, while others may feel like someone is pinching their skin. The second treatment only takes about five minutes, so the heating sensation is short-lived.
After the treatment is complete, you may have some redness in the treatment area and it may feel like it is sunburned, but these side effects typically go away the next day.
If you’re ready to get rid of that stubborn fat and tighten your skin before your next big vacation or event, call Dr. Christine Lee at (925) 528-0117 to schedule a consultation!
