Non-Surgical Facelift with Fotona 4D Protocol for Natural-Looking Results
Fotona 4D is a specially designed skin lifting protocol that uses a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments to treat both interior oral cavity and exterior facial skin. With two laser wavelengths and 4 treatment steps, it enables full-thickness contraction of collagen for effective tightening and volumizing of the skin without the use of injectable dermal fillers.
The 4 treatment modes approach skin lifting by working on all depths of the skin, working on superficial imperfections to the deeper connective structures of the skin.
What is Fotona 4D?
The 4D represents the 4 dimensions of skin rejuvenation that targets all layers of the skin to stimulate production of collagen and elastin fibers.
The first step begins with the inside of the mouth. A gentle laser is applied intraorally specifically to reduce nasolabial folds and wrinkles from the inside of the mouth. Upon contact with the laser, it also kickstarts the tightening process around the jawline and perioral region. Just like how dermal fillers are often used to fill the nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the mouth, this treatment reduces the expression lines by stimulating collagen production.
The 2nd step of Fotona 4D is to specifically target the deep lines and pigments on the skin and improve overall skin texture through its self-induced, non-ablative 3D fractional effects on the skin. FRAC3 laser produces a 3D thermal damage structure in precise locations of ageing skin, yielding better anti-ageing results.
Piano mode is a proprietary laser that distributes controlled super long pulse durations of laser energy to the skin. 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.
The Fotona 4D 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 long is the Fotona 4D treatment?
Fotona 4D is a 30-45 minute laser treatment that causes very little discomfort with minimal downtime. If you opt for a more aggressive treatment, you may experience some skin redness for a day or two.

To see optimal result, you should undergo Fotona 4D treatment every 4 to 6 weeks.
Can I combine Fotona 4D with other skin lifting treatments?
Yes, Fotona 4D can be combined with other skin lifting modalities such as Ultherapy, TriPollar or dermal fillers to further enhance the skin lifting capabilities.
