Head-to-toe Aesthetic Treatments – Part 2 : Upper Body

Home / Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures / Fotona Laser Treatments Toronto / Head-to-toe Aesthetic Treatments – Part 2 : Upper Body

The advent of laser treatments for the face and body has many consumers excited about these non surgical procedures because they are now widely available to the general masses. Non invasive methods for treating various areas on the body also offer customizable options for people to specifically target areas of their choice. Dr. Torgerson’s Cosmetic Clinic & Laser Centre is proud to offer a variety of new non-invasive laser treatments for the body. (See Part I for the top aesthetic treatments for the head and neck.)

What Type Of Treatments Are Available?

Body contouring works by reducing and eliminating unwanted fat cells and tightening the skin to contour and reshape the mid-section of the body. These applications can also be used on other areas of the upper body like the arms, back, and sometimes the chest/décolleté area for skin tightening, which also revitalises the skin. The newest upper body procedures that we offer are the following:

Tight Sculpting

Tight Sculpting is a dual modality treatment that allows practitioners to target the mid section in one treatment session. This is a non-invasive dual-wavelength laser treatment that causes hyperthermic adipocyte destruction and initiates neocollagenesis to effectively contour and remodel the skin around the waistline. The process of the 2 sequential treatments is explained below.

Step 1

Nd:YAG PIANO Mode

PIANO Mode (1064 nm) by the Fotona Dynamis SP series simulates laser lipolysis by deeply increasing the skin temperature to 42° to 45°C without burning the skin. Increased tissue temperatures in the subcutaneous adipocyte cells cause the destruction of the fat cells in the treated area. This mode is pioneering in body contouring procedures because of its unique long Nd: pulse mode that safely delivers laser light to deeply heat the subcutaneous fat cells while simultaneously increasing the production of collagen in the epidermis. The body then eradicates the destroyed fat cells naturally through its elimination process over the course of several weeks. This is a standalone procedure called HotSculpting. HotSculpting is the first step in the dual functionality of the TightSculpting body contouring procedures.

Step 2

Er:YAG SMOOTH Mode

Smooth Mode (2940 nm) uses thermal pulses to superficially tighten the skin in combination with the PIANO Mode, which destroys the unwanted fat cells. The interaction between these two functionalities causes significant improvements in the treated skin. Neocollagenesis is initiated with SMOOTH Mode from the Fotona Dynamis SP series by delivering controlled laser light into the skin to initiate the remodelling of the surface tissue. This improves laxity and elasticity in the skin.

TightSculpting is a multipurpose non-ablative body treatment that destroys unwanted fat cells and promotes the stimulation of collagen. It can create astounding improvements in skin laxity, elasticity, and the circumferential reduction of the treatment areas. Many plastic surgeons believe that the Dynamis laser system combined with the PIANO and SMOOTH modes can be equally effective or even more effective than radio frequency technology for tightening and lifting the skin. TightSculpting can be applied to the skin of the stomach, flanks, back, under and over the bra area, and even smaller areas like the back of the arms.
