Many say that wisdom comes as we age, but loose, saggy skin also comes with it. The aging process results in the loss of essential proteins such as collagen and elastin surrounding the areas in your face, often seen in your dermis. These could appear on the face as double chins, fine lines, and wrinkles.
You shouldn’t lose all hope, for the industry of non-surgical cosmetic treatments will help us age gracefully. There are many procedures and customized plans to fight against the aging signs, and we’ll be talking about one treatment today: the well-known Fotona 4D procedure which is a non-invasive and safe face lifting laser.
What is Fotona 4D?
Fotona in Singapore has a series of non-surgical laser procedures focusing on your facial area. This technology utilizes various wavelengths, Nd:YAG and Er:YAG, used in four steps to address surface and deep-level issues such as hyperpigmentations, sagging skin, acne scars, and others.
How Does Fotona 4d Work?
The 1st Step: SmoothLiftin™
The Er:YAG laser is adjusted and put into a non-ablative mode to offer feather-like treatment inside of your mouth, particularly the mucosal lining of some areas such as the lines surrounding your mouth, the edges of your lips, and the lines at the sides of your nose.
This step is performed first to introduce and facilitate collagen generation on the lines and wrinkles surrounding your mouth, offering it a tightening result to boost elasticity. It might also offer a plumping result to the areas being, which could also be seen in filler procedures.
The 2nd Step: FRAC3®
In this following step, the Nd:YAG laser would treat the cheek and jaw region, where it address deeper imperfections using a fractional laser to lessen acne scarring, surface uniform skin tone, and enhance sunspots and pore size.
It causes thermal injury to microscopic skin columns inducing the them to generate new collagen and product more elastic fibers. Because of the minimal injury, your skin gets a quicker healing process and reduced downtime.
This rejuvenation procedure intends to provide your skin with a youthful texture by reducing fine lines, pores, and offering an even skin tone.
The 3rd Step: PIANO®
The Nd:YAG laser’s PIANO mode is meant to penetrate deeper into the dermis layer and give uniform bulk heating. This process requires producing heat from an outside-in system in order for it to enter. The epidermis, or top layer of skin, will be spared throughout this procedure. This surgery will be performed by a doctor who will employ a brushing method.
The synthesis of collagen is stimulated by heating the deep layers under the skin, resulting in firmer, raised, and more supple skin.
The 4th Step: SupErficial™
The Fotona 4D treatment concludes with a gentle laser peel that gently exfoliates the skin, eliminating any dead skin and revealing an immediate pearl-smooth, glowy appearance.
This stage makes use of Fotona’s VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which is patented. This treatment may be adjusted and controlled to a large extent by the doctor, with just minor thermal adverse effects.
The Benefits of Fotona 4D
Fotona in Singapore has four phases that provide the following skin benefits:
- Collagen production is promoted, which improves skin firmness and elasticity.
- Firmer skin has a lifting impact on the face and restores volume.
- Improve the overall appearance of your skin for a more youthful radiance and texture.
- The deep FRAC3® therapy improved scarring and hyperpigmentation.
- The skin-refining impact of steps 1 and 3 reduced wrinkles and fine lines.
- The SupErficial™ light laser peel softly exfoliates the skin, giving it a young shine.
Is It Painful? Are There Side Effects?
There is minimal to no downtime with the Fotona 4D because it is non-invasive and non-surgical laser treatment.
The sense of a warming mild prickling feeling during the procedure is one of the most prominent Fotona 4D side effects. After the session, the person may seem flushed. After the operation, the skin might be quite sensitive, but this is a normal part of the recovery process. We advocate using protection from the sun and hydration to take care of your skin.
