Fotona 4D Face Lift is a revolutionary non-surgical laser procedure to lift sagging skin while strengthening the skin tone and facial texture. The elements of a desirable face include a sharp, firm and V-shaped jawline. Having a tight facial visage is coveted by many, especially in Asia, as it imparts a youthful appearance and clearly accentuates one’s overall features.
The 4D Face Lift treatment strengthens an individual’s collagen and instantly lifts collagen contraction. We know that collagen is an important component that keeps our skin firm, healthy and youthful-looking. The immediate outcome will be the stimulation of collagen, resulting in tightness and increased elasticity of your skin.
Fotona 4D Face Lift is a 4-step laser technology that uses two different wavelengths (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG) and a combination of four lasers (SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO® and SupErficial™) to produce effective results from both inside and outside.
The SMOOTH mode is conducted on the inside of the oral cavity. This laser gives off a well-controlled and gentle heat to build more collagen and stimulate its fibres. The primary purpose is to get a plumping effect, which works like a filler.
Used to complement the effect of the first step, the FRAC3 mode uses a self-induced fractional-effect beam to target deeper layers and restore a much youthful appearance.
The PIANO mode is a safe tissue heating method that delivers energy to tighten the skin. Lastly, the SupErficial mode enhances the appearance of the skin while reducing obvious imperfections such as fine lines, loss of volume and uneven skin tone.
Using Dynamis Pro which consists of all significant functions, it produces powerful combinations of lasers which enable full-thickness contraction of collagen for effective skin firming and revitalization without the need for injectables. The Dynamis’s Er:YAG laser inherently ablates skin more precisely than other laser wavelengths. The machine ensures synergistic laser treatment that gives both instantaneous and ongoing results.
Because no injectables are used, the results are natural and there is zero downtime - so you can continue your daily activities right after the treatment. The overall benefits of Fotona 4D face lift laser treatment are:
Fotona 4D Laser is very effective in helping patients lessen the buccal fat in their face. A single session treatment has produced clearly visible results in patients, giving them a much more defined and shapely face. Buccal fat reduction using the Fotona 4D Laser is completely non-surgical and has no downtime involved.
This is a non–ablative VSP Er:YAG is a unique modality for non–invasive thermal–only treatments. This is ideal for effective results in the improvement of laxity and elasticity in the treated skin tissue.
Smooth uses Smooth technology (long-pulse Er:YAG) which is ideal for skin tightening. The intense heating stimulates collagen remodeling and improvement of wrinkles, laxity and elasticity in the treated areas around the eyes. The mode pulses for controlled and gentle “bulk-heating” help to stimulate collagen contraction while improving tightness and elasticity in the treated tissue.
Using Nd:YAG laser under FRAC3 Mode, it gently removes imperfections on the surface of the skin, especially the neck. It can effectively reduce imperfections such as atrophic scars, hypertrophic scars, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation on the skin over the course of several treatments.
This mode uses R34-T with MatrixViewTM15–20 mm spot size, Nd:YAG handpiece modality which is indicated for treatments where overall homogeneous, bulk heating of the dermis is desired.
This treatment removes dead skin cells to promote a healthy glow as well as reduce imperfections by using Fotona’s technology. This allows the doctor to adjust the laser to an extremely controlled light peel but without thermal effects.
The Fotona 4D Face Lift treatment is suitable for any individuals who have:
Individuals may feel a mild sensation of warmth and pinching during the laser treatment. After the laser procedure, your skin may turn red and sensitive to the sun, which is part of the healing process.
Nevertheless, the 4D Face Lift treatment is very comfortable and most individuals can tolerate without the application of numbing cream. Patients are advised to wear sunscreen daily and avoid excessive sun exposure for better face lifting results.
The recovery period varies, depending on different individuals. The skin response to the treatment varies between individuals. The effects can be further enhanced by sun protection and effective skincare regimen. Eventually, the procedure will restore natural elastin and collagen lost due to ageing process.
