The first step of the two-step process removes fat- yes you read that right REMOVES FAT! The procedure is called Lipolysis. The TightSculpting Laser heats the fat layer of the skin and destroys your fat cells. Then your body, though a natural process, takes the dead fat away.
And the second step tightens the surrounding skin, sculpting your body giving precise, exceptional results. The procedure is a fast, safe and effective non-invasive alternative to liposuction key west. It doesn’t have the nerve damage possibilities as with other non invasive cooling systems for fat removal. TightSculpting also offers the skin tightening process after the fat removal which is not available with other cooling systems.
Just need the skin tightened? No problem, we skip the first fat destroying step and tighten up that loose sagging skin from weight loss or pregnancy or aging skin.

- Upper and lower abdomen
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Love Handles
- Chest for Men and for Women
- And TightSculpting® offers a Nonsurgical Breast Lift!
- Really almost any part of the body can be treated.
Who can have this procedure?
Patient selection is very important as the procedure is a body contouring procedure and not a weight loss procedure. Depending on your desired results, 2-4 treatments each taking approximately 1 hour may be all that is necessary. Consultations are recommended to answer any questions you have, review your expectations and identify any limitation of the procedure. But yes, 2-4 treatments and you will loose inches and your skin will be tighter lifted and with less fat. For TightSculpting procedures, the ideal patient should have a body mass index (BMI) between 20 and 25, but we can treat unwanted fat areas in a broader range of patients with much higher BMI’s. Some do see a weight loss after the procedure, but it isn’t the main focus of the procedure. The procedure is for fat removal and skin tightening in stubborn areas that are resistant to exercise and weight loss.
There is some warmth to the skin during the procedure. There may be some redness for 3 or so days after the procedures. There is a small risk of changes in skin pigment.
