At tokyogarden we offer laser fat reduction and skin tightening treatment called tightsculpting.
It is a proprietary and revolutionary laser by Fotona Sp Dynamis. It is a unique dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser treatment for sculpting by fat reduction and skin tightening on all body areas. It consists of 2 steps:
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 metabolism of fat cells, leaving the epidermis intact.
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
Tightsculpting is ideal for exercise and diet resistant areas. It is effective in treating:
- ・Loose skin around the neck
- ・Flabby upper arms
- ・Tummy fats
- ・Cellulites around the thighs
Post-pregnancy mothers with loose skins around the tummy
The area of treatment will be cleaned with normal saline. Area of treatment will be marked into quadrants. Laser will be continuously fired onto each quadrant to reach optimum temperature of 42 degrees. We aim to keep the temperature of 42 degrees for 3 minutes for each quadrant. Then we will proceed to skin tightening laser which will run through each quadrant for at least 8 passes. Each treatment interval is 3 weekly.
Minimum of 5 treatments are need to have an effective and longer lasting results. You will have mild temporary redness over the treated area. Depending on location of treatments, you may notice up to 1 waist size down after 5 treatments and tighter skin.
It’s a comfortable and no downtime procedure which takes about 30-40minutes depends on location. Expect to have some redness after the procedure but it will resolve after a while.
Patients will tattoos around the treatment are contraindicated as high risk of burns, pain and will destroy the tattoo. Patients who are grossly obese should not go for this treatment as Tightsculpting is used to treat exercise and dieting resistant areas. Not as a primary slimming device
The procedure typically requires about an hour, depending on the surface areas of your underarms.
Before the treatment, our therapist will gently cleanse the areas to be treated.
First, our doctor will run the PIANO Nd:YAG laser around the treated area, targetting and heating the fat cells underneath. The sensation is similar to having a rubber band snapping on the skin
Next, the SMOOTH® pulse laser will be used around the treated area, to firm up skin as the fat cells degenerate
and drain away.
The area may appear pink or red post treatment for an average of 20-30 minutes. Our therapist will provide a cold compress and cream to help soothe the hot sensation. After it fades, you can resume normal activities i.e go to work, have meals etc.
Q: Does the treatment hurt?
No. You’ll feel a mild warm sensation that feels like rubber band snapping on your skin but it is largely tolerable.
Q: Under what circumstances, should I avoid this treatment?
Persons who are pregnant or may be pregnant, severe diabetes, sensitive skin. For details please ask our doctor.
Q: Can I see results immediately and how long will they last?
There is an immediate tightening effect after one treatment, but the targetted fat cells take up to 2 months to naturally drain away from the body. We recommend three to six treatments for an area.
