What is Fotona4D®

Fotona4D

Fotona4D® is an innovative laser treatment that uses a unique combination of 2 complementary laser wavelengths to treat 4 distinct “dimensions” of the skin to rejuvenate and tighten from the inside out. Fotona4D® offers a non-surgical, non-invasive facelift alternative that delivers natural-looking, long-lasting results.

  • Tightening and volumization without the need for fillers or toxins
  • A full lifting treatment from the inside out
  • Immediate rejuvenation, tightening and glow
  • Improved skin complexion
  • Little or no downtime
  • No surgery, needles or anesthesia
  • Minimal side-effects and downtime
  • An investment in skin quality
  • Long-lasting results

How does it work?

Fotona4D® = 4 Dimensions = 4 Steps

Fotona4D® uses 4 dimensions of rejuvenation to tighten the skin from the inside out.

1D Step 1: SmoothLiftin

Fotona4D® starts inside the mouth, where laser energy is used to immediately kick start the tightening process around the jawline and perioral region. This step will also reduce expression lines like the nasolabial folds and wrinkles, much like a filler, but naturally.

2D Step 2: FRAC3®

Next, to complement the intraoral treatment, deeper imperfections (like deep lines) and pigments are precisely targeted to restore a youthful texture and more uniform overall complexion.

3D Step 3: PIANO®

In step three, a brushing technique is used to safely and rapidly apply heating to create an overall tightening effect, resulting in more firm and lifted skin.

4D Step 4: SupErficial

Lastly, a light laser peel is done to improve the appearance of the skin and address surface-level imperfections. You’ll immediately notice that your skin looks refreshed, tighter, and you will enjoy a youthful glow!

What to expect?

Fotona4D® is a 30-45 minute non-invasive laser procedure that causes almost no downtime or discomfort, allowing you to carry on with your daily activities as usual. An immediate freshness and tightness of the face can be seen soon after the treatment, but the full effect unfolds gradually over a period of 2-3 months. One can expect continuing improvement for up to six months after treatment.

What to expect?

What is Fotona4D®?

Fotona4D® is a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments of both the exterior facial and interior oral cavity, enabling full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent tightening and volumization without injectables. With two laser wavelengths and 4 treatment modes, anti-aging is comprehensively approached from 4 different levels, working on deeper, medial and superficial connective structures of the skin, as well as targeting imperfections.

How long will it take to see results?

Results will vary with every individual, but most patients notice some results immediately, with the full effect taking place gradually over a period of 2-3 months. If you select to have a more aggressive treatment, you may experience a day or two or redness.

What does the procedure feel like?

Everyone is different, but typically there is a gradual warming sensation, and after a few minutes you may experience some very brief hot sensations in the treatment area, which dissipate quickly.

No, the treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, allowing patients to resume their normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.

LipLase

  • Non-Invasive Plumping for Fuller Lips without Injectables
  • Fuller, smoother lips
  • Stimulates collagen remodeling
  • Initiates new collagen synthesis
  • No needles, no downtime

LIP PLUMPING

Fotona SMOOTH® modality Er:YAG provides an immediate response that patients will notice. In contrast to injectable fillers, the LipLase™ treatment is non-invasive, and there is nothing artificial as patients develop their own collagen in their lips. With several adjusted passes the characteristics of ‘ideal lips’ can be achieved such as fullness, volume, correct balance between the upper and lower lips and a well-defined vermilion border.

For even deeper collagen stimulation Nd:YAG laser in PIANO mode is used, which is the safest mode for reaching deeper lying skin tissues, with minimal thermal effect on the surface.

NightLase®

Snoring and Apnea Treatment

What is NightLase® Snoring and Apnea Treatment?

Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.

Simple, Safe and Effective

How does NightLase® Treatment work?

During NightLase® treatment laser light heats the tissue, causing tightening of the tissue which leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patients snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.

The procedure is performed in two simple steps:

Step 1: PRECONDITIONING The laser light preheats the tissue.

Step 2: TISSUE STRENGTHENING Laser light strengthens the tissue.

A full course of NightLase® treatment is comprised of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final result of the treatment has been shown to last up to a year. When the patients or their loved ones notice the effects erroding, another round of treatment can be performed.

Why are Fotona laser systems perfect for NightLase® Treatment?

Fotona enable a strong yet gentle Er:YAG modality which optimizes the length of every pulse. This mode allows for the superficial penetration of heat into tissue, without damage or adverse effects. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.

Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.

NightLase is easy for provider to perform and has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.

TwinLight Laser Acne & Acne Scars

What is TwinLight Laser Acne & Acne Scars Tx?

Laser treatment of Active Acne reduces acne inflammation by photoselective absorption and heating of overactive sebaceous glands. The power of an Nd:YAG laser is used to accelerate the healing process and to reduce the possibility of developing new acne inflammation.

Laser treatment of Acne Scars is based on the precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure where the Er:YAG laser is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred skin and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.

Best clinical results are obtained by employing two complementary wavelengths of near infrared lasers (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG – TwinLight Tx).

How does it work?

1. Active acne: A high power Nd:YAG laser is used to penetrate the skin deep enough to thermally and selectively destroy large sebaceous glands.

2. Acne scars: The Er:YAG laser is used to remove micron-thin layers of skin so that new skin can form in its place. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser resurfacing allows to be easily controlled. The laser gently vaporizes the acne-scarred surface of the skin so that undamaged skin below is revealed.

Why is wavelength important?

Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser wavelength safely penetrates into skin with the optimal depth to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands. In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the treatment of acne.

For problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin.
