Non-invasive laser body contouring has successfully gained massive popularity among plastic surgeons and their patients over the last decade. This is because with body contouring, you achieve tremendous improvements in the areas of treatment without surgery and without the associated downtime. Laser-assisted liposuction is a program that usually consists of a series of treatments that help melt away fat in those hard to lose areas around the body. Laser liposuction sessions can be paired with a healthy diet and exercise program to help people accelerate their weight loss goals.
Dr. Torgerson’s cosmetic clinic is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Toronto. Our clinic has the latest equipment in laser technology to help Dr. Torgerson’s patients look and feel their best.
Read below to understand our latest two technologies for reducing unwanted fat on the body. Body contouring is an ideal procedure for most people, because treatments are usually short and you can return to your activities immediately after treatment.
SculpSure is the latest laser technology that has been recently approved by Health Canada to permanently eliminate fat around the abdomen and flanks. SculpSure treatments are a convenient choice for Dr. Torgerson’s patients because each session takes only 25 minutes to complete. Each SculpSure session can treat up to 4 areas with the proprietary applicator system. Treatment frequency is best determined during a complimentary consultation with a registered nurse who is certified and knowledgeable in designing the most effective treatment plan to meet the patient’s expectations. Depending on the patient’s fat-loss goals, SculpSure treatments are recommended every 6 weeks for the first 3 months. The results of up to 24% permanent reduction in fat can be seen at 12 weeks.
TightSculpting is the newest non-invasive laser technology that can contour and circumferentially reduce fat on the entire body. This multidimensional treatment firms and shrinks the skin on the stomach and surrounding areas. It also permanently reduces the treated adipose fat cells in the body. TightSculpting promotes the stimulation of collagen and elastin fibres of the skin by delivering bulk heating into the subcutaneous cells that respond by eliminating the fat cells. The body’s natural elimination process removes the eradicated fat cells, metabolizing the cells over the course of several weeks. Results are seen with improved contouring of the treated areas, enhanced skin laxity and elasticity, along with the increased production of collagen in the dermis. TightSculpting is an ideal synergistic body contouring treatment that uses the most advanced laser technology to achieve high-definition results. The dual action generated by the fat-reduction and skin-tightening procedures provides added benefits to patients who want considerable improvements in just one session.
A qualified, registered nurse at Dr. Torgerson’s Cosmetic Clinic prescribes laser-assisted liposuction treatments followed by a detailed treatment program that is usually spread out over the course of several treatments that are repeated every 4 to 8 weeks. The frequency of the treatments is critical in the results that people can achieve. Prescheduling treatments at the beginning of your first session is a quick way to automatize the laser therapy sessions into your schedule. SculpSure and TightSculpting treatments can be repeated every 6 weeks to achieve high-performance fat-reduction results in the abdomen and other areas of the body with TightSculpting procedures.
SculpSure and TightSculpting have been approved by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for reducing unwanted adipose fat cells around the midsection. The laser technology used with these two treatments does not cause any harm to the surrounding tissue and cells. The applications SculpSure by CynoSure and TightSculpting by Fotona have been precisely engineered to target the unwanted fat cells safely and efficiently and to increase the stimulation of collagen and elastin within the dermal structures. Both treatments successfully eliminate fat cells with their thermal energy properties, causing the body to safely metabolize the dead fat cells with improved skin quality.
The body’s natural elimination process takes several weeks for it to flush out the laser induced injured cells. Most patients begin to see improvements with TightSculpting immediately, with improved results seen over the course of 6 to 12 weeks. SculpSure results take up to 12 weeks because the laser targets the fat cells below the surface of the skin. Therefore, most of the fat elimination processes occur underneath the skin. Patients tolerate both treatments very well, without any uncomfortable post treatment symptoms. A synergistic fat reduction program is a safe and effective way to contour your body without disturbing your appearance or your daily lifestyle.
