Fotona 4D Non-invasive laser face lifting London
The innovative Fotona4D treatment is a non-invasive laser face lift. It is performed by combining four treatment procedures in one. These are the next uses of the Er: Yag laser - endolifting, then the Nd: Yag - FraC3 laser, Piano, and again the Er: Yag - Superfacial laser. The complementary Er: Yag and Nd: Yag wavelengths enable the laser to operate in deep, intermediate and superficial skin structures. Fotona4D is performed both on the outer surface of the face and inside the mouth. This method of carrying out the treatment allows the collagen to shrink in the entire thickness of the skin, thus enabling the achievement of permanent skin firming and its filling without the use of fillers. When choosing a treatment using this innovative method, you can expect the following effects: increasing the elasticity and tension of the facial skin increase the density of the skin improving the oval of the face smoothing the skin (by shrinking the sebaceous glands, i.e. pores) filling nasolabial furrows and other gravitational and mimic wrinkles (e.g. crow's feet or a lion's wrinkle) reduce the visibility of imperfections (such as minor acne scars) even skin tone.
Laser face lifting treatment description step by step
Laser therapy with the ultra-modern BLT Fotona laser gives new possibilities in the field of non-invasive facial rejuvenation thanks to Variable Square Pulse Technology. This technique allows the physician to adjust the impulse to the individual characteristics of the patient and his needs: from cold ablation peeling, through non-ablative mode supporting growth of new collagen fibers, to deep thermal coagulation acting on the inner layers of the skin.
Step 1: Endolifting (SmoothLiftin)
The first stage involves the interaction of the Er: YAG laser beam on internal facial tissues, stimulating collagen fibers for intensive growth. Using a special overlay, the doctor stimulates the tissues inside the patient’s mouth with a non-ablative laser beam, focusing particularly on the cheek muscles, major and minor zygomaticus muscles and the interior of the lower and upper lip. This innovative procedure allows for non-invasive filling of nasolabial folds, removal of smoker’s wrinkles and pulling up saggy cheeks- all thanks to the impact on collagen and elastin fibers.
Step 2: Frac 3D
During the second phase of the procedure, the physician focuses on the minimally invasive, non-ablative, fractional rejuvenation of the deep layers of the skin, based on the mode of short pulses of the Nd:YAG laser. Based on clinical results, it has been shown that this type of laser therapy is a safer and more effective alternative to invasive laser techniques. The procedure reduces the pore size of the skin, improves its structure and colour. Therapy causes local thermal injuries, which stimulate the skin to produce new collagen fibers.
Step 3: TERMOLIFTING PIANO
The third phase of the procedure is to increase the volume of facial tissues using a long Nd: YAG laser beam. The new, extremely long PIANO mode extends the duration of the pulse, so it can be used in non-ablative remodeling treatments. PIANO is the safest, gentle remodeling of collagen that allows achieving deeply located layers of skin
Step 4: Superficial
The last step is cold ablation with Er: YAG laser, whose task is to smooth the skin surface for a velvet finishing of treatment, and it is based on a thorough refreshing of the epidermis. Last phase completes the three previous stages, improves the outer appearance of the skin, brightens, closes pores, and reduces the skin unevenness.
