If you have been considering anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatments, chances are you’ve come across several advertisements or read about surgical facelift, dermal fillers, and thread lifts. If the idea of undergoing surgery and getting injectables are not appealing to you, then Fotona 3D Skin Revive Programme may be suitable for you.
What is Fotona 3D?
The Fotona 3D skin-tightening protocol is a laser-based technology that provides non-invasive anti-ageing treatment using 3 different lasers. Three modes of lasers target different layers of the skin, working synergistically to smooth, tighten and improve the overall texture of the skin. With a series of 3 consecutive lasers in one session, this technique can reduce appearance of fine lines, improve overall skin texture, and stimulate collagen production.
1D: FRAC3® The 1st step of Fotona 3D is to specifically target the deep lines and pigments on the skin and improve overall skin texture by using a high-energy fractional beam to target deep layers of the epidermis. FRAC3 laser produces a 3D thermal damage structure in precise locations where premature ageing is visible, regenerating and producing healthier skin cells for a more youthful appearance.
2D: PIANO® Piano mode is a proprietary laser that distributes controlled super long pulse durations of laser energy to the deeper subcutaneous tissues. This non-ablative function of the Nd:YAG laser enables deep penetration of heat energy that induce deep bulk heating of the dermis to gradually raise temperature in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Any area of the body that requires skin tightening will greatly benefit from this treatment.
3D: SUPERFICIAL™ The Fotona 3D treatment ends with a gentle, light laser peel to improve the skin texture and overall appearance of the skin to address superficial imperfections. The Superficial function aims to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and reduce superficial fine lines and tighten open pores.
How many sessions are required?
The Fotona 3D Skin Revive Programme has a total of 5 sessions. Your doctor will assess your skin condition before determining the frequency of your treatment. In general, a programme of 5 sessions should be able to last up to a year. Upon completing the first programme in 12 months, you can repeat 1 session every year for maintenance.
What is the downtime of this treatment?
The Fotona 3D Skin Revive Programme is designed to be a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that is gentle on the skin. After the treatment, you may experience some skin redness but this should subside within a day.
When can I see results?
Results may vary among individuals but most people should be able to see some visible results after the 1st treatment. The result should last longer if it is done every 2 months.
Can Fotona 3D be combined with other anti-ageing treatments?
You may opt for the SMOOTHLIFTIN™ treatment which is an intraoral laser treatment that is applied inside your mouth. This is done to improve the nasolabial folds and other signs of ageing on the lower face. With this treatment incorporated into your treatment, it is known as Fotona 4D treatment.
If you are not keen to opt for an intraoral treatment, your doctor may recommend other skin-lifting procedures such as Ultherapy, thread lift or dermal fillers to further enhance the skin lifting capabilities.
