The 4D laser facelift is a non-surgical method which improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven tone and texture and loss of volume.
Using a laser, collagen is tightened, while new collagen production is also stimulated, giving the skin a youthful, healthier appearance.
Unlike other facelift methods, this procedure does not involve the use of any chemicals and does not involve a surgical procedure. It is ideal for those who are wanting to appear rejuvenated and also wish to have no downtime following the procedure.
The laser facelift is performed using Fotona4D treatment. This involves using two laser wavelengths – Er:YAG and Nd:YAG. Treatment targets four different levels – deeper, medial, superficial, and targeting imperfections.
The four dimensions of the laser facelift refer to four treatments within Fotona’s SP Dynamis system: SmoothLiftin, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial. These treatments work together to combat the signs of ageing.
You will be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you have wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin or lack of volume which you are wishing to treat.
It is suitable for people who do not wish to use chemicals and do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure.
Fotona4D involves the use of four treatments with Fotona’s SP Dynamis or SP Spectro systems. These are:
You should experience no pain throughout the procedure.
The whole process will take around one hour to complete.
This is a day procedure, so you will be able to return home once the treatment is complete.

You may notice some redness or swelling of the skin, which will last one to two days.
For optimal results, you may wish to undergo repeat treatments. You may opt to undergo three treatments, which should be done 14-21 days apart.
