Laser skin resurfacing technology has been around for a while, but it hasn’t been until recently that it’s become so incredibly effective, affordable, and prolific—this kind of cosmetic treatment has become incredibly popular in recent years. One technology which has become known for its efficacy for a variety of cosmetic goals is called Fotona.
What is Fotona 4D?
Fotona 4D refers to the four different treatments available through Fotona laser skin resurfacing treatments. These treatments are SmoothLiftin, Frac3, Piano, and SupErficial. Patients can choose to have one or all treatments administered—the treatments which are right for you are dependent upon your unique anatomy and goals.
The suite of Fotona treatments is non-surgical and non-invasive. These treatments are available for patients with any kind of skin colouring—individuals with skin pigmentation ranging from very light to very dark can enjoy the benefits, a rather revolutionary feature for laser skin resurfacing technology. Additionally, Fotona 4D treatments offer long-lasting benefits compared to cosmetic treatments which offer similar benefits such as dermal fillers. Dermal fillers have to be administered via an injection, whereas Fotona is totally non-invasive—furthermore, dermal fillers have a limited range of efficacy, ranging from six months to two years.
SmoothLiftin intraoral tightening is capable of tightening the skin of the face, particularly the cheeks to raise them and add volume. As the name implies, the procedure is conducted orally. Results of this treatment will provide plumpness similar to dermal filler treatments but will last much longer, and it can even diminish the nasolabial folds for patients who would like to do so.
Piano skin tightening is a Fotona treatment which acts to stimulate the natural supply of collagen in the body. This causes a tightening effect on the skin and the facial features to become more voluminous and youthful. Piano skin tightening has even been shown to promote a more rapid speed of healing in some patients.
Frac3 skin rejuvenation is most beneficial for patients who have skin imperfections, including deep imperfections which were previously thought to be permanent. Dark spots, flushing, and atrophic scarring can be reduced or eliminated entirely, often after only a single treatment—Frac3 is a popular solution to stubborn acne scars. The treatment can also improve the overall texture of the skin and reduce the amount of wrinkles present.
SupErficial skin polishing is essentially a very light laser peel—ideal for reducing imperfections on the surface layers of the skin. It is excellent for reducing the appearance of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles, and provides a “polish” on the skin which makes the skin appear to be more smooth, youthful, and vibrant.
