Body contouring is a procedure that alters the shape of the human body by eliminating or reducing excess skin and fat. When most people hear the word “body contouring,” they automatically think of surgery and liposuction. However, with the introduction of TightScultping® and its advancements in laser technology, an effective form of non-invasive body contouring has finally become available. By combining two different laser wavelength treatments, fat-dissolving and skin-tightening can be both achieved during a single TightScultping® procedure with just a single laser device. The TightScultping® solution involves a deeply penetrating Nd:YAG laser operating in the PIANO® mode for thermic adipocyte destruction (i.e., “sculpting”) and a superficially absorbed Er:YAG laser operating in the FotonaSmooth® mode for improved skin laxity, collagen remodeling and tightening. The FotonaSmooth® and PIANO® components of TightScultping® represent a complete body contouring solution, which can be, depending on the type of patient and the goal of the treatment, used individually or in concert, during a single procedure and with a single laser device. The combined procedure can be thus used to treat a variety of conditions, including temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

In this second part of a two-article series on TightScultping®, we describe the principles of the FotonaSmooth® laser modality and provide treatment parameters and guidelines for improving skin laxity, collagen remodeling and tightening.
