4D Face Laser & Skin Tightening


Our Fotona Laser is an amazing addition to our already superior laser therapy options here at Martin’s Rejuvenation Centre! What makes the Fotona system unique is the use of two types of laser wavelengths that can work on several layers of tissue (deep, middle, and surface structures of the skin, while simultaneously targeting skin imperfections) allowing us to truly customize your treatment options. 

How The Fotona 4D Laser- Customized Non-Invasive Facelift Works:

  • The Fotona 4D facial laser is a series of non-invasive laser treatments to both the exterior face and interior oral cavity (mouth). This treatment enables full-thickness contraction of collagen that helps with long-lasting tightening and volumization without the use of injectables. 

Areas The Fotona 4D Laser Non-Invasive Facelift Targets:

  • Tightening internal mucous membranes around mouth/nose (a.k.a. nasolabial folds, marionette lines)
  • Targeting pigment and irregularities in the skin 
  • Tightening the deep dermis and stimulating collagen growth
  • Superficial exfoliation (peeling) of the skin surface

Who Can Provide A Consultation And Perform Treatment?

  • Laser technicians 

Side Effects 

  • The treatment is quite comfortable overall but most people will feel some heat related discomfort during the treatment. This is usually temporary (during the procedure) and localized to the area being treated. Redness and swelling is also common after laser treatments but the degree will vary greatly based on an individual’s skin sensitivity and the aggressiveness of treatment. Redness and swelling can last anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Other more rare effects can include mild tenderness that persists for several weeks, a flare-up of acne or milia formation, pigment changes or inflammation/irritation of the skin. 

How Long Will The Effect Last? 

  • Because everyone is different, it isn’t possible to completely predict how long results will last. Factors such as age, sun exposure, smoking, and overall skin care practices can influence results greatly. Many clients will notice an improvement in the appearance of their skin after one treatment (thanks in part to the skin resurfacing element of the 4D treatment) but best results will be achieved with a series of 3 to 4 treatments (spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart from each other). 

What To Expect During Consultation

  • Your consultation process is taken very seriously here at Martin’s. We want you to feel comfortable with our team and we also want to ensure your needs and concerns are being heard. You will be asked to complete a brief history form, which will be reviewed with one of our expert laser technicians. Your appointment time is geared towards discussing possible treatment options, reviewing budget, understanding risks & benefits, and obtaining your consent to proceed. 

Procedure Time

  • Treatment time can take anywhere from 30 minutes to just over an hour.

How To Prepare For Treatment 

  • Before treatment it is important to stop any medications that might cause light sensitivity, and we also encourage patients to stop Retin A or Glycolic Acid at least 2 weeks prior to treatment. We require that all patients stop taking Accutane at least 6 months prior to any laser treatments. 

Special Considerations

  • It is important to consider that the Fotona laser is not to be used on tanned skin or with medications or creams which cause light sensitivity. We also can’t perform treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have any questions about eligibility for treatment, be sure to book a free consultation with one of our expert laser technicians. 

Step 1: Internal (intraoral) Tightening


First, controlled and gentle “bulk-heating” aims to stimulate collagen contraction which creates an immediate tightening effect as the collagen fibers shrink. This also helps stimulate new collagen to form. In the areas that are treated, there is an overall improvement in skin tightness and elasticity as well as a plumping effect to the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. 

Step 2: External Skin Tightening


In the second step of treatment, ultra-long pulses of concentrated energy cause the tissue to quickly, and safely heat up. This full-thickness bulk heating results in an overall tightening effect to the skin.

Step 3: Fractional Rejuvenation


The third step involves treating specific and deeper imperfections in the skin through the use of a fractional laser that generates tiny spikes of high temperature to targeted areas.

Step 4: Light Peel


The final step is a gentle peel that precisely, and comfortably removes the surface layer of the skin, which reduces imperfections and leaves the skin with a pearl-like finish.
