Fotona 3D

Fotona 3D Non-Invasive Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation

The Spa & Laser Center is proud to introduce a unique method of skin tightening and rejuvenation utilizing The Fotona 3D Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation Method. This procedure employs two lasers in unique modes and settings to accomplish results similar to fillers and other tightening devices but without the down time and discomfort.

The combination of an Er:YAG 2940 nm and Nd:YAG 1064 nm lasers utilizes a unique technology to achieve collagen stimulation and remodelling. This new collagen synthesis has been shown to help with wrinkles, skin tightening, texture, pore size, scarring, flaccid skin and hyper pigmentation.

This procedure is a 3-step method performed sequentially in a single treatment session:

Step 1:

The Er: YAG laser in a SMOOTH (non-ablative) mode is utilized intra-orally to stimulate the collagen in the oral mucosal. This procedure can be used in the buccal and peri-oral mucosa to lift and fill the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and prejowl sulcus (frown lines). The laser is used intra-orally in the lip mucosa to improve lip lines and fullness.

Step 2:

The Nd: YAG laser light (FRAC mode), aimed from the surface of the skin, and penetrates deep into the dermis to cause collagen remodelling and stimulation of new collagen.

Step 3:

The Nd:YAG in a PIANO mode, causes dermal collagen remodelling under an undamaged outer skin surface layer. This causes the skin to tighten and smooth thus diminishing the surface wrinkles.

This three-step procedure causes no pain, only slight warmth with the laser stimulation. There are no down time or known adverse effects. We suggest 2-4 treatments, every 4 weeks apart depending on your age and concerns. The results are long lasting. This procedure is safe for all skin type.

A superficial laser peel can be added to the above three step procedure. This laser peel will remove superficial skin imperfections and roughness. This will leave your skin radiant and smooth. This additional step will require 2-3 days of superficial skin peeling.
