Fotona is a global manufacturer of high-performance aesthetic laser systems and a pioneering developer of innovative laser treatments based on the industry's gold-standard Nd:YAG and Er:YAG wavelengths.
Fotona's expertise with researching and harnessing the anti-aging capabilities of powerful laser wavelengths has led to the development of Fotona4D, a series of synergistic and non-invasive laser treatments of the exterior facial and interior oral cavity, which enable full-thickness contraction of collagen for tightening and increasing volume without injectables.
Fotona4D anti-aging works on four different levels, working on deeper, medial and superficial connective structures of the skin, and targeting imperfections. Fotona4D refers to four distinct treatments with Fotona's SP Dynamis or SP Spectro systems: SmoothLiftin, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial, which are all harnessed to combat facial aging with little or no downtime or anesthesia, and which can be performed throughout the year.
SmoothLiftin is a revolutionary nonablative Er:YAG intraoral treatment for controlled and gentle bulk-heating to stimulate collagen contraction. In addition to an immediate effect resulting in the shrinkage of collagen fibres, new collagen is generated. This results in improved tightness and elasticity in the treated tissue, as well as a plumping effect to the nasolabial folds from the inside, much like a filler.
The specific pulse structure of Fotona's Nd:YAG laser and its enhanced photo-selectivity generate a self-induced fractional effect with tiny spikes of high temperature. This nonablative modality enables the treatment of specific, deeper imperfections to complement the intraoral treatment and restore youthful texture.
A unique, ultralong Nd:YAG pulse mode for the third stage of Fotona4D safely and rapidly heats bulk tissue from the outside inwards, by delivering energy 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.
The light cold Er:YAG ablation gives the skin a pearl finish. SupErficial additionally improves the appearance of the skin and reduces imperfections by using VSP technology, enabling the operator to adjust the laser to an extremely controlled light peel, without thermal effects or downtime.
By combining these four treatment modes and complementary wavelengths, the result is a respectable yet minimally invasive anti-aging treatment that offers a multidimensional choice of safe and effective treatment options.
Dr M Christine Lee, owner and director of The East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center in Walnut Creek, California, says: "These unique four laser modalities provide full-thickness-penetration laser treatment that can really impress. You can treat superficially as well as down to the dermis, provide volumetric bulk heating and then plump from the inside at just the right location for a synergistic effect. You get great results in one session, although as with other therapies, additional sessions provide additional improvement."
Dr Adrian Gaspar, owner and director of Prima Piel Clinic in Mendoza, Argentina, says: "Combining the three Fotona skin treatment modes of SP Dynamis with the fourth, intraoral SmoothLiftin mode gives the physician a powerful and non-invasive treatment. The procedure is typically painless, not requiring anesthesia, and can be done without any downtime. Moreover, it can be performed all year round, including the summer months, without the risk of adverse events such as post-procedural hyperpigmentation."
With over 50 years of experience in laser technology, Fotona's aesthetic lasers systems are leading the industry forward with new levels of innovation and performance.
