What is 3D and 4D?
Fotona is a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments of both the exterior face and interior oral cavity, enabling full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent tightening and volumization (wrinkle reduction) without injections.
As we age, our skin cells lose moisture and less skin-firming collagen is produced. The elastin fibers begin to wear out and the skin thins as it loses subcutaneous fat. The skin can become very discolored via pigmentation or redness and the texture of it often changes. Fortunately, there is now something you can do about it.
The “3” and “4” dimensions of Fotona:
Step 1 – SmoothLiftin (Intra-oral or mucosal)
The first step involved a pain free treatment which targets volume through a process called collagen induction inside the mouth. The effects are an overall improvement of tightness and elasticity of the skin along with a plumping effect, much like a filler.
Step 2 – FRAC3 or Smooth Tightening
The second step is individualized for general lifting of the face and neck and can involve targeting treatment of specific, deeper imperfections in the skin like spots and vascular components using a fractional laser. This is fast, effective and will help restore youthful texture.
Step 3 – PIANO
The third stage involves heating the skin safely and rapidly from the outside in by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. This is done using a brushing technique and provides an outstanding tightening effect for areas experiencing skin laxity.
Step 4 – SupErficial
The final stage is like a polishing effect for our skin. The treatment removes dead skin cells to reveal the brighter, healthier tissue below and provides that noticeable “glow” to your skin.
Each person is assessed for their specific needs and 3 or 4 of these modalities can be made into a customized treatment plan. Patients can expect minimal to minor downtime depending on modalities used. You may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after a 2-4 days. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following treatment.
