For those patients with skin imperfections ranging from fine lines to deep wrinkles, medical practitioners have many treatments at their disposal to suggest—but one form of treatment has been gaining in popularity rapidly since its development: Fotona laser skin resurfacing.
Using the Fotona laser as developed by Dynamis, this revolutionary technology can offer patients four treatments using a single tool.
Fotona 4D: SmoothLiftin, Frac3, Piano, and SupErficial
Each of the four treatments capable of being provided through Fotona laser treatments is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. Furthermore, unlike similar laser treatments, Fotona technology will work for patients with any kind of skin pigmentation. This means that if you have a skin colour ranging from very light to very dark, it doesn’t matter—Fotona 4D will work in exactly the same way.
A final but important point to make about this kind of cosmetic treatment is that Fotona can offer similar benefits to far more invasive cosmetic treatments, even including surgical facelifts and injected dermal fillers. Dermal fillers typically have effects which last between six months and two years, but Fotona treatments will last much longer.
Frac3 skin rejuvenation is a member of the Fotona 4D suite of treatments and is intended for use with patients who have skin imperfections. These imperfections may be light or deep and may include sun spots, age spots, wrinkles, or even acne scars—and Frac3 can substantially reduce or even eliminate these undesirable features. The overall texture of the skin will be improved and irregularities in the pigmentation will be corrected.
SupErficial skin polishing is a light laser peel treatment that can target surface-level imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, and creases—these are often difficult to target and abate through different methods. The treatment will also give the skin a polished, smooth appearance.
Piano skin tightening acts to stimulate collagen within the body. Since collagen already exists—but production slows over the years—the treatment actually causes the body to naturally reproduce. More collagen will cause the skin to tighten and become more voluminous and youthful, making this treatment ideal for patients who have “thin” or loose skin. Interestingly, Piano skin tightening may even help accelerate the healing process for some patients.
Finally, SmoothLiftin is a skin tightening procedure. Known as intraoral tightening, this procedure literally rejuvenates the skin from the inside (of the mouth) out—making it ideal for targeting the cheeks and to add volume to the face. For some patients, the treatment may even be applied to reduce the size of the nasolabial folds. Regardless, the plumpness derived from SmoothLiftin treatments is very similar to the effects garnered through dermal fillers but lasts significantly longer.
