Fotona 4D Signature Facelift

Frequently Asked Questions

How it works?

Fotona 4D is a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments for both the exterior face and interior oral cavity, enabling full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent tightening and volumization.  Fotona 4D is known as the “nonsurgical face lift”. The effects of Fotona 4D are different from filler because Fotona 4D assists in your body’s natural process of building collagen and developing healthy young tissue.

Fotona’s lasers utilize controlled energy into the skin, which the body then perceives as damage and attempts to repair itself. One of the “side effects” of this repair process is the production of collagen and growth factors! This results in more skin plumpness and firmness as well as enhanced smoothness and a more even complexion.

The 4 Dimensions of Fotona 4D:

  1. SmoothLiftin™
    The first step is intraoral tightening, 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 involves bulk 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 pigmentation spots, acne scars, and vascular components using a fractional laser. This is a fast, effective process, and will help restore a more even 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 skin. It will provide a noticeable glow to your skin. The intensity will be adjusted according to the patient’s skin type and concerns.

What can I expect from Fotona 4D?

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

How often should I have Fotona 4D?

For optimal results, a course of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended. Your body takes time to build collagen, and 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.
