A few decades ago, the only way one could reverse the signs of ageing such as sagging and loose facial skin was to get involved through doing invasive treatments or surgical facelifts. While they are effective, these options can create an obvious, unnatural appearance as well as unnecessary downtime. Thanks to the advancement of laser technology, these invasive treatments are no longer the only treatment options for those with loose and sagging skin.
My Bliss Clinic’s Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment is a non-surgical treatment that addresses the skin’s laxity, lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, and uneven skin tone and texture on the face.
This is a non-invasive and non-surgical process that tightens the skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract and stimulate the production of new collagen. The Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment results in skin tightening and increased elasticity of your skin.
The Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment treats both the exterior of the face as well as the interior oral cavity to produce extraordinary results from inside out. The Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment is an advanced technology treatment that has 4 unique laser modes and combines 2 types of lasers: Nd:YAG and Erbium YAG laser.
This first step is conducted on the inside of the oral cavity. This non-ablative laser provides a controlled and gentle ‘bulk-heating’ to stimulate collagen contraction and new collagen fibres. The main target of this step is the nasolabial folds, which results in a nice, plumping effect from the inside out.
The second step uses a fractional beam that targets deeper imperfections to restore a youthful texture and tone to the skin.
The next step is a safe and fast-bulk tissue heating from the outside in, done by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. The bulk-heating method is used to tighten the skin.
This last laser mode is done to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce imperfections with an extremely controlled light peel. This gives the skin a smoother and clearer finish.
Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment is recommended for those:
- Have loose and sagging skin on the face and neck
- Have mild to moderate wrinkles
- Want to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing invasive cosmetic procedures
For the Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment, an average 4 to 6 sessions, once every 3 to 4 weeks, will be required for optimum results. Our doctor will work with you to determine a treatment plan that is right for you.
The Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment is comfortable. Numbing cream is applied before the procedure due to the mild pinching sensation. There will also be a feeling of warmth throughout so cryogen will be used to cool the skin during the treatment. The Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment is safe for most skin types except very dark skin tones.
Immediately after the Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling on the treated area. These conditions should resolve within a few hours. There is little or no downtime, and you should be able to return to work and normal activities immediately. It is advised that you wait 24 hours before you wear makeup.
Most patients will see immediate results, you will see the final results over the next 2 to 3 months as the collagen regenerates.
It is very important to minimise sun exposure 2 weeks before and after the Fotona 4D Laser Skin Tightening Treatment. You should also follow the post-treatment protocol carefully, which will be provided after the treatment. Certain skincare products such as acidic and Vitamin A creams need to be avoided for 3 to 5 days after the treatment.
