4D is a non-invasive face lift, and a signature treatment by Fotona laser. This treatment uses a unique combination of 4 distinct steps of laser to combat facial aging. Done in one session, in consecutive order, this is a holistic treatment which targets multiple concerns of the superficial and deep layers of the skin. It can address wrinkles, mild forms of pigmentation (epidermal), and loss of skin tone and dullness.
This treatment is performed in the following order:
1. Step 1 targets nasolabial rejuvenation from inside the mouth to achieve non-invasive collagen stimulation (smooth lift).
2. Step 2 targets vascularity and texture, using non-ablative skin rejuvenation. This improves small imperfections, stimulates collagen, and improves redness and the appearance of pores (FRAC3).
3. Step 3 targets skin laxity by utilising bulk tissue heating. Doing so will stimulate collagen and increase tightness (PIANO).
4. Step 4 targets texture irregularities by performing a light ablation method to induce a pearl-like finish with minimal downtime.
Who is this for?
This treatment is suitable for all skin types and has minimal downtime, which is mainly for 1-2 days due to step 4. You can also expect very mild peeling of the skin on day 5. For anyone who prefers no downtime at all, refer to 3D.
4D is suitable for anyone who would like overall enhancement of the face with focus on texture, volume, and imperfections. This treatment can be performed on any skin colour, however dark skin will need to be on pigment inhibitors for 3-4 weeks prior to commencement of 4D to ensure adequate prep and no risk of pigmentation.
Best results are usually seen after 3-4 sessions. Sessions are usually 4-6 weeks apart. This treatment can be combined with LipLase and/or SmoothEye (refer to tabs for further information).
