What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift is a comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment that we perform using the non-invasive Fotona laser system. The Fotona laser system enables us to take advantage of the Fotona4D® treatment, which combines four different laser technologies into one treatment for deep skin remodeling and rejuvenation. The non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift treatment can tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and eliminate other imperfections in the skin to produce a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
How Much Does a Non-Surgical Facelift Cost?
If you elect to have a non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift treatment. Once these variables are considered, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment Like?
It is a four-step treatment performed in the following order:
- Gentle laser energy is used to heat the skin, causing it to contract and tighten. This produces short-term skin tightening effects, while also stimulating collagen production for continued improvements in elasticity.
- A stronger laser energy is delivered deep within the skin, addressing deeper imperfections and complementing the effects of the previous step.
- Another skin tightening laser is used to heat large areas of the skin. This step reaches deeper than the first skin tightening laser, heating large amounts of tissue at once for rapid results.
- To complete the treatment, a light, cold ablative laser is used to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin. By performing a light peel at this stage, we are able to enhance the appearance of the skin and eliminate superficial imperfections, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following a Non-Surgical Facelift?
The non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift treatment can vary in strength based on the patient’s treatment goals. As such, the recovery will depend on the intensity of treatment. However, most non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift treatments require absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their appointment. Side effects such as redness or sensitivity in the treatment area can be expected, but these effects are minor and typically fade within a few days.
When Will I Notice Results from My Non-Surgical Facelift?
The results from your non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift will begin to become visible after the skin has healed and collagen production has increased. Most patients notice results within a week or two, with more dramatic results developing over the months following treatment. As with most laser treatments, we typically recommend a series of multiple treatments for optimal results.
The non-surgical Fotona4D® facelift treatment can help you achieve beautiful rejuvenation benefits without the cost, downtime and scarring associated with surgical techniques. Baldone Reina Dermatology is proud to offer this treatment to men and women living in Mandeville, Covington, New Orleans and the Northshore, LA.
