What is Fotona 4D in Singapore?
Fotona 4D is a 4 dimensional treatment used for face lifting and skin tightening, as well as the reduction of wrinkles and providing an overall skin rejuvenation for ageing skin or saggy face. Fotona 4D is known to help with skin laxity, texture, tone and collagen repair.
How does Fotona 4D Laser Facelift works?
"Fotona4D® = 4 Dimensions = 4 Steps"
Fotona4D Laser Facelift works by using two different laser technology - Er:YAG and Nd:YAG with 4 unique protocols namely: SMOOTH, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial to rejuvenate the skin and accentuates facial features. This 4-step procedure treats skin both internally and externally, from surface and deep skin layers to fat layers and retaining ligaments of the face.
1D Step 1: SmoothLiftin™
Treatment starts from inside the mouth, targetting the the mucosa tissue (muscle inside the mouth) with Er:YAG laser in a non-ablative mode for effective tightening of the cheeks, reduction of nasolabial fold and perioral wrinkles, at the same time, lifting the treatment area like a filler.
2D Step 2: FRAC3®
Targeting the cheek and jaw area using Nd:YAG laser where controlled micro columns of skin is subjected to 'thermal injury' without touching the surrounding areas. This 'injury' triggers the skin's natural repair mechanism to stimulate collagen production. Deeper imperfections (like deep lines) and pigments are precisely targeted to restore a youthful texture and more uniform overall complexion!
3D Step 3: PIANO®
A brushing technique is used to safely and rapidly apply heating to deeper layers of the thick dermal tissue, allowing energy to be delivered deep into the skin without causing unnecessary thermal damages to the upper layer of the skin. This bulk heating step triggers neocollagensis to create an overall tightening effect, resulting in more firm and lifted skin.
4D Step 4: SupErficial™
A light laser peel is done to address surface-level imperfections. By milding exfoliating, you will immediately notice that your skin looks refreshed and tighter with a healthy natural glow!
What to expect from Fotona 4D Laser Facelift?
Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a 30-45 minute non-invasive laser procedure with almost no downtime or discomfort. The procedure allows you to carry on with your daily activities as usual and no numbing cream is required for this treatment.
You will generally feel a warm sensation on your skin when the laser hits, however the heat will dissipate quickly. The expected results are the following:
- Skin tightening for the entire face
- Increase in facial volume for sunken face
- Increase in elasticity in the deeper skin tissues
- Reduction in fine lines around the mouth
- Skin brightening as a mild exfoliation is done at the end
How soon to see results for Fotona 4D facelift?
Results vary among individuals. Most people notice an immediate freshness and tightness of the face soon after the treatment. Greater improvements are after 4-6 weeks from the treatment.
The full effect unfolds gradually over a period of 2-3 months. One can expect continuing improvement for up to six months after treatment. Results usually last for 9-12 months due to continual collagen and elastin regeneration.

The treatment is non-invasive and gentle, hence the side-effects are minimal. You are unlikely to experience pain, downtime or bruising but the possible side effects are mild redness and peeling of the treatment area.
