Fotona 4D Laser Facelift
results may vary based on a variety of factors
Fotona 4D Laser Facelift | Dr. Shelena Lalji, M.D
The Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to address skin laxity, lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, and uneven tone & texture on the face.
How Fotona 4D Works
The 4D treatment strengthens collagen and immediately lifts by collagen contraction. New Collagen production is also stimulated, resulting in tightness and increased elasticity of your skin. The synergistic laser treatments treat both the exterior of the face as well as the interior oral cavity to produce results from both inside and out. The procedure provides both immediate and ongoing results.
The Fotona 4D Treatment lifts, tightens, plumps, improves skin texture, and provides wrinkle reduction on the skin with the use of 4 unique laser modes: SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO® and SupErficial™.

The SMOOTH mode is conducted on the inside of the oral cavity. This non-ablative laser provides a controlled and gentle “bulk-heating” to stimulate collagen contraction as well as the stimulation of new collagen fibers. The primary target during this step are the nasolabial folds, which get a nice plumping effect from the inside out, similar to a filler.
The FRAC3 Mode uses a fractional beam that targets deeper imperfections to restore a youthful texture and tone to the skin.
The PIANO Mode is a safe and fast bulk tissue heating from the outside in by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. The bulk heating is used to tighten the skin.
The SupErficial Mode is used lastly to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce imperfections with an extremely controlled light peel. This gives the skin a smoother pearl finish.
