Everything you need to know about the 4D Fotona Laser Treatment
4D Fotona Laser is a non-invasive laser therapy that combines synergistic laser treatments for the exterior of your face and the interior of your oral cavity. This entire therapy allows for full collagen contraction for increased skin tightening efficacy without the use of injectables or surgery. Anti-ageing is approached from four separate levels with this high technology laser, working on the deeper, medial, and surface connective structures of the skin, as well as addressing flaws.
The four “dimensions” of Fotona 4D correspond to four different SP Dynamis treatments from Fotona:
Smooth Lifting, FRAC3, PIANO, and SuperficialTM are all used together to battle facial ageing with little or no downtime and no pain, and can be done at any time of year.
How Can The 4D Fotona Laser Treatment Improve Your Appearance?
There are multiple facets of skin appearance that the Fotona Laser can help to improve, including face lifting, tightening of the skin, reduction of jowls, fine lines and wrinkles, improvement of laugh lines or sad lines, slim down your face to achieve a V-shaped face, reduction of extra facial fats, improvement of volume loss, and brightening up the skin tone are all possible with this innovative technique.
How Does It Work?
Step 1 – The SMOOTH mode is activated to work from the inside of the mouth or lower eyelids. This non-ablative laser uses regulated and mild “bulk-heating” to encourage collagen contraction and new collagen fiber formation. The nasolabial folds, which acquire a great plumping effect from within, is usually the main goal during this procedure. This not only causes current collagen fibers to shrink, but it also causes new collagen to be produced. Smooth treatment effects include a plumping effect on nasolabial folds, enhanced elasticity and tightening of the cheeks, an improvement in mild to moderate perioral or undereye wrinkles, or a reduction in the size of eyebags, depending on which area is treated.
Step 2 – FRAC3 skin rejuvenation produces a three-dimensional fractional effect that selectively targets skin flaws while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. In comparison to traditional fractional treatments, this provides for a speedier recovery and less downtime. FRAC3 decreases depressed scarring, wrinkles, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation across numerous treatments, while tightening skin at the same time, complementing the results of it’s intraoral treatment.
Step 3 – PIANO Mode is a safe and quick way to heat bulk tissue from the outside in by concentrating energy delivery under the skin. To tighten the skin more effectively, bulk heating is performed. The Fotona PIANO is the only extreme long-pulsed laser on the market that can penetrate the sagging fat and ligamental layers of the face to produce outcomes that other devices can’t. To ensure collagen remodeling, a lengthy pulse duration is required for water and collagen fiber absorption. Fotona PIANO delivers deeper tissue penetration with a tightening of all skin layers by bulk heating by developing an ultra-long pulse technology. With minimal downtime, the result is a reduction in face laxity and wrinkles. There is an instant effect of facial slimming when higher settings are employed for persons with bulky cheeks.
Step 4 – Superficial is a moderate laser peel that eliminates dead skin cells and improves surface imperfections such as pores and fine wrinkles, giving the skin a smoother texture and even skin tone, completing the Fotona 4D treatment. We can modify the laser for a regulated light peel without heat effects that is safe for all skin types and has low downtime using Fotona’s VSP technology. Superficial Mode improves the appearance of the skin and reduces imperfections with a much regulated mild peel or skin resurfacing, depending on the skin state. This results in a more uniform skin tone, a smoother pearl finish, and a smoother skin texture.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Till I Witness Results?

Is There Any Downtime Associated With The Procedure?
No, the procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical.
Do I Require A Certain Number Of Sessions?
If you’re over 40, our doctor recommends doing three treatments over the course of two years. After that, as maintenance therapy, you can repeat one session every year.
How Long Does Each Session Last, And What Is The Time Between Sessions?
Each session should be about 1.5 hours, and the time between sessions should be at least 3-6 weeks.
Where Did This Machine Come From, And Is It HSA Approved?
