Laser Skin Tightening/ Non-Invasive Facelift
The Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to address skin laxity, lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, uneven tone and texture on the face.
The 4D treatment strengthens collagen and immediately lifts by collagen contraction. New Collagen production is also stimulated, resulting in tightness and increased elasticity of your skin. The synergistic laser treatments treat both the exterior of the face as well as the interior oral cavity to produce results from both inside and out. The procedure provides both immediate and ongoing results. There is no pain during this procedure, though there can be sensation of warmth and mild pinching sensation.
Most patients will see some immediate results, with the final result gradually appearing over a period of approximately 2-3 months.
The Fotona 4D Treatment lifts, tightens, plumps, improves skin texture, and provides wrinkle reduction on the skin with the use of 4 unique laser modes: SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO® and SupErficial™.
The SMOOTH mode is conducted on the inside of the oral cavity. This non-ablative laser provides a controlled and gentle “bulk-heating” to stimulate collagen contraction as well as the stimulation of new collagen fibers. The primary target during this step are the nasolabial folds, which get a nice plumping effect from the inside out, similar to a filler.
The FRAC3 Mode uses a fractional beam that targets deeper imperfections to restore a youthful texture and tone to the skin.
The PIANO Mode is a safe and fast bulk tissue heating from the outside in by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. The bulk heating is used to tighten the skin.
The SupErficial Mode is used lastly to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce imperfections with an extremely controlled light peel. This gives the skin a smoother pearl finish.
The treatment time is roughly 45-60 mins. We recommend 3 sessions, 14-21 days apart. There is no downtime and you can continue your daily activities right after treatment. There may be mild redness, swelling and peeling for only a day or two, so you may wish to consider this a “social downtime” procedure.
