Laser Facial Aesthetics Q & A
What is a laser facial aesthetic treatment?
At Nicholas G. Rendon, DDS, laser facial aesthetic treatment is an entirely noninvasive facelift that can address your individual concerns. The Fotona 4D system includes two unique laser wavelengths that work together on your inner and outer face.
As an experienced dentist, Dr. Rendon is highly knowledgeable about facial anatomy. Using his specialized skills in this area, Dr. Rendon perfected a customized treatment approach using the Fotona 4D system.
How does a laser facial treatment work?
The Fotona 4D system offers all-around skin tightening by gently heating and strengthening your collagen, the support network for your skin. The stronger collagen creates a lifted, more youthful look.
Fotona 4D treatment also triggers fresh collagen and elastin growth. The new collagen fills in wrinkles and lines while restoring volume in areas like your cheeks and lips. The elastin gives your skin that youthful bounce.
Fotona 4D treatment is also particularly helpful in two areas that many men and women worry about as they age: the nasolabial lines, also called smile lines, around your nose and lips and the melomental lines, also called marionette lines, that run downward from the lip corners to the chin.
After one laser works on your collagen, the other works on the skin surface, gently helping you shed dead skin cells. This improves your skin texture and tone simultaneously.
During your treatment, you’ll notice slow warming. You might experience some very fast hot pings, but they quickly go away. The whole procedure takes 30-45 minutes.
When will I see results after a laser facelift?
Most patients see minor improvements after about a week. Around 4-6 weeks after your first Fotona 4D treatment, you’ll notice significant results, including improved skin volume, texture, and tone.
With a series of treatments, your results improve even more. You’ll continue creating new collagen and elastin for 9-10 months following your final treatment, so the results are long-lasting.
Is a laser facelift right for me?
The ideal patient is someone with mild-to-moderate facial laxity (sagging). One of the benefits of Fotona 4D treatment at Nicholas G. Rendon, DDS, is that it's very customizable. Dr. Rendon can use specialized techniques to get you the results you want if you have more severe facial laxity and significant skin volume loss.
How does a laser facelift compare to injectables?
Other common aesthetics treatments require volumizing injections, which can be uncomfortable and could lead to a fake-looking or overdone result. Injectables can also last as little as six months, while a Fotona 4D facelift tends to last much longer.
