Fotona laser systems are an industry leader in manufacturing aesthetic laser-based treatments for the face and body. Dr. Torgerson and his team are very excited to introduce this innovative system at his Toronto Cosmetic Laser Centre.
How Does It Work?
HotSculpting works by inducing hyperthermic lipolysis and neocollagenesis in treatment areas. The dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser heats the tissue temperatures in controlled high temperatures at controlled depth settings for a short period. This reduces fat cells and tightens the surface of the skin without causing harm. The treatment entails raising the skin’s temperature to 42° to 45°C without burning the skin. Many plastic surgeons believe that the Dynamis laser system combined with the Piano and Smooth modes can be equally or even more effective than radio frequency technology for tightening and lifting the skin.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of treatments depends on your desired results. For visible improvements, most people require eight 20-minute sessions about every 10 days. Patients should avoid direct sun exposure during and in between treatments and should take extra measures to moisturize the affected area liberally to ensure that the skin is well hydrated.
Who Is A Good Candidate?
Patients who are experiencing skin laxity due to ageing or weight reduction and women who have experienced childbirth are ideal candidates for HotSculpting. HotSculpting treatments can be paired with a diet and exercise program to produce outstanding results that can be similar to that of laser-lipo results . . . but without surgery.
Does It Hurt?
Several passes of the Dynamis in Piano mode will heat the deeper layer of the skin. The ideal treatment functionality maintains the temperatures on the surface without causing discomfort for the patient. The treatments are very well tolerated and have a very short period of associated downtime post-treatment. *If you are interested in reducing fat while tightening your skin with no surgery, no downtime, and with immediate results.
