Fontona 4D Signature Facelift

Frequently Asked Questions

How it works?

Fotona 4D is a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments of both the exterior face and interior oral cavity, enabling full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent tightening and volumization.  Fotona 4D is compared to a nonsurgical face lift and dermal filler injections to improve facial features. While fillers have a certain life span, Fotona 4D lasts for a longer period of time because it is your body building collagen and developing healthy young tissues.

The 4 Dimensions of Fotona 4D:

  1. Intraoral SmoothLiftin
    The first step involves a pain free treatment which targets volume through a process called collagen induction from inside the cheeks.  The effects are an overall improvement of tightness and elasticity of the skin along with a plumping effect.  Similar to dermal fillers, the cheeks are lifted, the nasolabial folds are tightened, and the lines are reduced.
  2. PIANO
    The second step of Fotona 4D involves heating the skin safely and rapidly from the outside by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously.  This is done using a brushing technique and provides an outstanding tightening effect for areas experiencing skin laxity.  This process stimulates the tissues to produce collagen at the deeper dermal layer of the tissue.
  3. FRAC3
    The third stage involves the targeted treatment of specific, deeper imperfections in the skin like brown spots, acne scars, and vascular components using a fractional laser.  This is a fast, effective process, and will help restore a more youthful skin tone.
  4. SupErficial
    The final stage is like a polishing effect for your skin at the superficial layer.  The treatment removes dead skin cells and surface pigmentation to reveal brighter, healthier, tissues.  It will provide a noticeable “glow” to your skin.

What can I expect from Fotona 4D?

You will have a few days of redness, and some people experience peeling as old skin sheds off and new skin is formed.  Most people can resume their daily activities immediately following treatment.  You will notice the rejuvenation effects over the next few weeks as your tissues build new collagen.

How often should I have Fotona 4D?

For maximum results, a course of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended.  Your body takes time to build collagen, you will notice even more improvement after each treatment.  Top up treatments may be required every 1-2 years depending on your skin’s condition and lifestyle.
