Fotona’s 4D laser treatment synergistically applied in four different modes: SMOOTH, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial to work on deeper, medial and superficial connective structures of the skin, while simultaneously targeting different skin imperfections. It enables full thickness contraction of collagen for persistent, low-downtime tightening and volumization without injectables.
Step 1: SmoothLiftin– Intraoral treatment for controlled and gentle “bulk-heating” to stimulate collagen contraction. In addition to an immediate effect resulting in the shrinkage of collagen fibers, the initiation of new collagen generation occurs. The effects result in an overall improvement of tightness and elasticity in the treated tissue as well as a plumping effect to the nasolabial folds from the inside, much like a filler.
Step 2: FRAC3– A specific pulse structure that generates tiny regional spikes of high temperature. This nonablative modality enables the treatment of specific, deeper imperfections to complement the effect of the intraoral treatment, as well as restore youthful texture. .
Step 3: PIANO– A unique, ultra-long Nd:YAG pulse mode for the third stage of Fotona4D. The laser causes bulk tissue heating safely and rapidly, form the outside in, by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. The PIANO pulse is in the super-extended seconds regime mode, with a brushing technique for completing the full-thickness bulk heating with an overall synergistic tightening effect.
Step 4: SupErficial– This last step produces a pearl finish to the skin. It improves the appearance of the skin and reduces imperfections by using propriety VSP technology.
