Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening

“4 Complimentary Laser Treatments in 1 session” targeting all levels of skin

The Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is an exciting, cutting edge new nonsurgical skin tightnening procedure for men and women of any skin type.   The 4D Laser Lift combines 4 synergistic treatments using two complementary laser wavelengths, to provide safe tightening of facial skin, to improve sagging, jowls, wrinkles, lines and folds, reducing the visible signs of aging.

In the lower and mid-face, a full thickness treatment stimulates maximum stimulation of natural elastin and collagen production.   In addition, the procedure provides effective freshening and rejuvenation of the entire skin surface.

The first step of the 4D Facelift is a unique procedure called Smoothliftin®. The entire inner surface of the cheeks and lips are treated with non-ablative infrared light, using the Er:YAG laser, for tightening, volumizing and restoring collagen starting from the inside out. This reduces the depth of the nasolabial and melomental folds (The lines from nose to lips, and lips to chin), and helps restore lip volume.

The second step uses the Nd:YAG laser in Fotona’s Frac3® modality. This helps to lift, restore tone and tightness from the outside, in the cheek and jowl areas.

The third step uses the Nd:YAG laser in Fotona’s PIANO® mode. Controlled deep tissue heating is maintained for a period of time. This promotes tightening and restoration of collagen and elasticity in the dermis and deeper tissues.

Finally, the skin surface is lightly treated with the Er:YAG laser in SupErb® mode, to provide a smooth, fresh surface and smooth out skin surface irregularities.

No surgery. No pain. No downtime. No bruising.

The Fotona 4D Laser treatment is done in our medical clinic.  It involves no cutting, burning or removal of tissue, and no injections or suturing. There is no bleeding, bruising, or scarring. After the procedure, the skin may be mildly pink for a day or two. Makeup may be applied immediately after the procedure, if desired. There is a sensation of heat, but the procedure is not painful. Most patients say it feels like lying in full sun on a beach. Sedation or anesthesia are unnecessary. After the procedure, the patient may safely drive home or return to work.

The Fotona 4D Laser Lift is a series of 3 treatments, provided at least 2 weeks apart. Most people notice some immediate improvement after the first procedure. Friends may comment about your younger or more rested appearance, without recognizing that a procedure has been done. Improvement builds with additional treatments. After the series is completed, additional improvement continues for about 6 – 9 months, due to regeneration of normal elastin and collagen. At that point, you will resume aging just as you would have years ago.

As with any cosmetic procedures, the duration of the Fotona 4D is not forever. It is expected that improvement may lasts up to 2 years. We recommend a “touch-up” procedure every 18 months or so.  Suitable for patients who do not wish to use injectables as well as maintainence treatments after surgical facelifts procedures.

Fast, safe, and comfortable

Each standard Fotona 4D procedure requires about an hour. Additional optional treatments such as a neck treatments or forehead/brow/eye rejuvenation may extend the session to about 90 minutes. There are no known long-term risks.
