If you’re wanting to add instant volume to your face without undergoing invasive surgery, Fotona’s 4D Facial Rejuvenation Treatment helps you regain your youthful glow and firmness by combining four unique treatments that lifts and tightens the skin and improves the tone and texture.
Looking for an instant facelift that doesn’t require any surgical knives, anaesthesia or needles? Fotona’s 4D Facial Treatment is a non-invasive procedure that has been specifically tailored to volumise and tighten the mid and lower face.
Using two different wavelengths of laser pulse in the layers of skin, the thermal effects of the ND YAG laser not only restores volume and tightens the face by stimulating a synthesis of collagen and elastic fibres deep within the layers of skin but also improves the skin’s tone and texture through a combination of four unique treatments.
Which patients are best suited for the treatment?
Safe for all skin types, the treatment is ideal for anyone wishing to have a natural but younger-looking complexion.
What issues does the 4D Laser Facial Rejuvenation specifically address?
- Loss volume in the skin
- Sagging jowls
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin tone, redness and course texture
- The improvement of skin laxity
- Expanded pores
- Superficial scarring
- Myriad skin irregularities
How is this achieved?
With the focus on the nasolabial folds, cheeks and neck, the 4D Laser Facial Rejuvenation treatment utilises two synergised wavelengths of energy with four combined treatments that work together on the superficial, middle and deeper layers of the skin. This includes the interior of the oral cavity as well as the exterior of the face to enable the tightening and lifting effect. Each part of the four-step procedures, however, serves a different purpose.
What are the four steps?
Step One: Smoothliftin | Intraoral
The first is a painless, oral laser rejuvenation treatment that targets the delicate tissues inside the mouth, and tightens the skin on the exterior of the face, around the chin, nasolabial folds, and mouth.
Step Two: FRAC3 | Rejuvenation
The second step to the treatment targets the deeper layers of the skin to treat a variety of imperfections such as sunspots and lesions while simultaneously rejuvenating the skin’s texture and firmness.
Step 3: PIANO | Skin Tightening
Ideal for lifting the cheeks and jawline, the third step involves heating the skin from the outside to promote the stimulus of collagen to gently tighten and lift the skin.
Step 4: SupErficial | Light Peel
The final step involves a gentle resurfacing laser peel which polishes and brightens the skin through the removal of dead skin cells. By reducing fine lines, pore size, and wrinkles, the overall effect will leave you with a younger and more rejuvenated complexion with long-lasting results.
How long will the procedure take?
The actual treatment will take approximately 30-40 minutes [depending on the treated area] so it’s a walk-in and walk-out procedure.
Is the procedure painful?
Patients may experience only a slight tingling during the treatment, however, the overall procedure is painless.
Are there any side-effects or required downtime, post-treatment?
The advantage of the 4D Facial Rejuvenation Treatment is the minimal downtime and side-effects as it’s non-invasive and involves no sedation or anaesthesia.
After the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness and gentle peeling of the treatment area, which will subside within 24-48 hours However, the end-results from the synthesis of collagen and elastin production will leave you with an increasingly smoother and more firmer complexion over time along with a more contoured jawline and brow lift.
How many treatments will I require?
As every patient’s skin is unique in its composition and appearance, we provide a personalised program suited to your needs. In most cases, patients will see significant results and lifting after the first session although ageing skin may take three to five sessions to achieve the desired effect.
This includes a series of 30-40 minute sessions every two to three weeks and ongoing treatments every four to five months to maintain an optimal effect.
Can the 4D Laser Rejuvenation Treatment be combined with the other anti-aging procedures?
Yes, it can. We can combine the treatment with anti-wrinkle injectables or fillers [subject to a consultation with Dr Chang].
Before undergoing the treatment, we will ask you to cease using products containing Retinol. After the session, Michele Hetherington, Senior Dermal Therapist will devise a post-treatment home care plan which will include a cosmeceutical moisturiser and sun protection cream.
How much will the treatment cost?
The price for a 4D Laser Rejuvenation Treatment will depend on the size of the treated area along with the number of sessions you will require. For all appointments and consultations, please contact practice manager, Jane Luong on 97446755
