Fotona 4D is a multimodality, 4-step laser treatment that helps to tighten, brighten, lift and smooth ageing, uneven or blemished skin.
Step 1, also known as SmoothLiftin or SkinTight Duo targets nasolabial folds (smile lines) by directing the laser inside the mouth and to the external skin around the mouth, lips and cheeks to regenerate collagen at every layer.
Step 2, also known as Frac 3 or Deep Rejuvenation, delivers microsecond energy pulses into the skin to reduce imperfections. The energy helps to refine pores for improved skin texture and reduce dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
Step 3, also known as Fotona Piano or SkinTight, applies a controlled bulk heating to the deeper layers of the skin to contract the collagen fibres and stimulate collagen regeneration to tighten, lift and strengthen the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Step 4, also known as the Erbium Peel, provides gentle exfoliation and creates a micro healing response in the superficial layer of your skin. It reveals a healthy new layer of skin cells and a touchable softness.
Fotona4D can reduce fine lines, tighten, lift and strengthen sagging skin, reduce redness and large pores, and improve skin texture and tone for a smoother, younger, more even and radiant complexion.
Fotona4D has four steps to address concerns with ageing, sagging, coarse pores, blemishes and redness.
Each step has a unique modality to deliver highly focussed energy into the skin to target specific concerns.
The full treatment time is about 1 hour.
Fotona4D was designed to improve surface texture, skin tone and to tighten, strengthen and lift sagging, ageing skin.
After your treatment course, your skin should feel softer, and you should have fewer blemishes, tighter-looking pores and a brighter, more even complexion. Your skin may look tighter as though it was given a subtle lift, and you should have more youthful, stronger elasticity.
You will see some results right away as the collagen contracts and tightens the skin. Your complexion will also be a little fresher as the dead skin cells are gently ablated.
Further skin tightening and brightening results will appear gradually over 2-3 months as collagen takes time to regenerate and rebuild itself, and your skin cells take time to turn over. Full results can be expected around 2-3 months after treatment.
Depending on the nature of your skin, it may be recommended that you return for occasional maintenance treatments. We can also recommend medical grade skincare products with anti-aging, exfoliating and pigment inhibiting properties to help you promote and prolong your results at home.
Fotona4D was designed to treat the face and neck.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment and you can return to your regular activities right away. In some very rare cases, there may be some mild blistering inside the cheek, but this is not very common, and it heals normally within a few days.
You may have some mild redness immediately after treatment, but this can be covered with mineral makeup. We offer complimentary post-treatment makeup touch-ups with a trained makeup artist so you may continue with your day.
There may be some mild discomfort during the first step of this treatment, but it is generally well tolerated. The other steps are relatively comfortable. Most clients report a warming or tingling sensation on the skin.
A four-step treatment is $1,100 (from $1,000 in a package).
The two main differences are in the modalities and the type of energy used.
Fotona4D involves four different modalities; two to tighten skin and two to improve surface texture and skin tone, so it’s like four different treatments in one.
Additionally, our other skin tightening treatments use ultrasound or radiofrequency energy while Fotona4D uses laser energy. Ultrasound skin tightening can provide more powerful skin tightening results, but the benefit with Fotona4D is that results can be seen sooner, and you benefit from improved surface texture and tone.
There is no prepping or aftercare required. We may recommend that you take extra caution with the sun for a few days following treatment.
