How it works:
This treatment uses the cutting edge, patented advancements of Fotona lasers to give incredible results without downtime.
The Fotona 4D™ treatment strengthens collagen and lifts the skin by collagen contraction. New Collagen production is also stimulated, resulting in tightness and increased elasticity of your skin. The synergistic laser treatments treat both the exterior of the face as well as the interior oral cavity to produce results from both inside and out.
Treatments have the ability to be tailored to the individual allowing versatility in the procedures and treatments, giving incredible skin tightening results which are natural as it has stimulated your own collagen to tighten and plump the skin. It therefore gives a natural not ‘fake’ look and has no risk of injectables. Dr Phillips has perfected this technique to enhance the 4D treatment to a 5D or even 6D treatment addressing the specific concerns of individual patients.
The overall result is tightening, volumising and restoring collagen to the face which reduces the depth of the nasolabial and melomental folds (the lines from nose to lips, and lips to chin), and helps restore lip volume. The treatment will also improve your skin tone and texture.
There are some noticeable minor improvements after a week but the greater improvements are 4-6 weeks after the first procedure, improvement will build with additional treatments and even after the treatment series is completed you will continue to see ongoing improvements for up to 9-10 months due to collagen and elastin regeneration.
It is expected that the Fotona 4D™ Laser Lift will result in tightening and increasing volume and elasticity in the deeper skin and tissues of the lower and mid-face. Lines around the mouth and lips will all improve.
The best outcome can be expected for those who have mild to moderate facial laxity. For patients with more severe laxity, atrophic skin and increased collagen loss, Dr Phillips will tailor additional layers of treatment to ensure you get the best results from this treatment.
Duration of Treatment:
