Fotona’s 4 Dimensional Rejuvenation
We have a come a long way in understanding the science of aging. Thousands of researchers around the world have been working on techniques to slow down, stop or even reverse the process of aging. Many anti-aging treatments are now available to consumers.
Essentially, the human body lives thanks to a constant process of regeneration, repair, and maintenance of its tissues. Aging can be interpreted as a progressive reduction of this regenerative ability.
Traditionally, skin rejuvenation by lifting, plumping, and tightening would involve injection, surgery or expensive chemical skin peels. Not only were these procedures costly, they also had a higher potential for side effects. Laser treatment is a science of causing controlled damage to the skin and stimulating the natural ability of the body to produce collagen and repair the damage – thereby healing the damaged areas of the skin and leaving you with tighter and younger looking skin. We do this using an amazing new technology – Fotona’s 4 Dimensional Rejuvenation This includes 4 different proprietary treatments that are done in conjunction and they are all done in one sitting.
Step 1 – Smooth Lifting
In this first step, the Er:YAG laser is applied to the inside of your mouth. This causes intraoral collagen stimulation inside and outside. As a result of this stimulation, you get the plumping effect and can immediately see a reduction in the nasolabial folds. It gives you a lift without any surgery, downtime or injections.
- 1. Safe
- 2. Non invasive requiring no special patient preparation or anesthesia
- 3. No downtime
- 4. No adverse effects
- 5. Effective with excellent immediate and medium-term effects
Step 2 – Frac 3
In this step, FRAC 3 laser pulses are used to target the dermal skin layers with a heat pattern, which can be described as the sensation of ‘sparks of heat’ within the tissue. This creates isolated ‘fractional’ hot islands within the skin. This treatment is based on causing three-dimensional fractional microdamage pattern within the skin. It is mainly used to reduce the appearance of minor skin imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, and spots. CASE REPORT – Clinical experience with FRAC3 Non-ablative Skin Tightening

Step 3 – PIANO mode
The purpose of the novel super-long (PIANO) Nd:YAG 1064nm laser pulse is to improve premature facial aging. The treatment is popular because of its ability to create deep penetrating wavelengths that reach even the lowest dermal layers and subdermal fatty tissues while staying within the ‘optical window’ of the skin. This specific laser wavelength has proven to be an excellent and effective tool to induce collagen contraction and remodeling as well as stimulate neo-collagenesis, an essential step in skin rejuvenation.
The new super-long PIANO pulse was designed to achieve a volumetric heating of the dermis while sparing the epidermis from unnecessary thermal damage.
Super-long 1064nm laser PIANO pulse photo-thermal cutaneous treatment is able to produce encouraging clinical results when double or triple subsequent passes are performed. In essence, this method stimulates those wrinkles and gets the face looking better, however, the best results are seen after several treatments.
Step 4 – SuperFicial Laser
In this stage, a hand-held device propels a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. The machine also has a vacuum system that sucks away dirt and dead cells from the epidermis. The condition of your epidermis determines how fresh your skin looks and hence this is a perfect ending to the four-step intraoral skin tightening process.
Think of it as a cold peel that can leave you with a pearly look on your face and skin.
