Laser technology has allowed millions of people across North America to achieve the body of their dreams by helping them remove unwanted fat and address the signs of aging in the skin. Laser fat-reduction and laser skin-tightening treatments are two of the most commonly requested procedures when it comes to non-invasive body-contouring procedures.
Dr. Torgerson’s Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic offers the newest and most advanced laser modalities that are indicated for a wide variety of skin-conditioning and body-modification treatments.
Below we discuss the top 3 non-invasive body-contouring treatments that are available at our Toronto location.
SculpSure is the latest Health Canada-approved laser machine that uses laser lipolysis to destroy unwanted fat cells in the body. SculpSure treatments are safe for the treatments of reducing fat on the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles/flanks, bra fat rolls, arms, and legs. SculpSure treatments require only 25 minutes to complete, and each treatment can treat up to 4 areas, with no downtime and no post-op pain. Body-contouring treatments with SculpSure are a quick and easy way to help remove those stubborn areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise.
Fotona HotSculpting treatments are non-invasive body-contouring treatments that can effectively reduce unwanted fat and subsequently tighten the skin on the treatment areas. HotSculpting uses two high-performance lasers (Nd:YAG and erbium YAG) for a two-step system that infuses both treatments subsequently to produce the skin-tightening and fat-reducing effects of the treatment. The first step in HotSculpting uses the erbium YAG laser to deliver bulk heating to the subcutaneous tissue. This promotes the production of collagen, thus improving skin laxity and elasticity in the treatment areas. The second step of HotSculpting involves a skin-tightening treatment that induces neocollagenesis by promoting skin laxity and elasticity in the treatment areas. Fotona HotSculpting procedures safely heat the tissue within the treated areas to temperatures ranging from 42° to 45° Celsius without causing any harm to the surface of the skin. Treatments are quick, and multiple areas can be treated in less than hour.
Patients who are feeling the effects of aging in the skin and have fat pockets that are not responsive to diet or exercise can benefit from non-invasive body-contouring procedures. Ideal candidates are within a reasonable BMI index and do not have any chronic health issues. SculpSure patients should have realistic expectations about the type of results that they can achieve with non-invasive body contouring treatments. Non-invasive body contouring treatments require a dedicated treatment agenda to achieve optimal results. Most patients require at least 2 to 3 treatments to see the best results. SculpSure results are seen after 12 weeks, and HotSculpting procedure results can be seen after the third session spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart.
