Fotona 4D – Non-Surgical Rejuvenating Laser Facelift at Genesis

Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is proud to announce the EXCLUSIVE addition of the Fotona 4D procedure.

Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that addresses concerns of skin laxity, lines, wrinkles, volume loss and uneven skin tone & texture on the face. Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is now happy to offer non-surgical laser facelift treatment to women and men residing in Florence, South Carolina, and the surrounding South Carolina communities.

What is Fotona 4D?

The Fotona 4D non-surgical facelift immediately lifts the face with advanced laser collagen contraction. New collagen production is also stimulated over time, resulting in tighter, firmer skin with increased elasticity and tone. The synergistic laser treatments treat both the exterior of the face, as well as the interior oral cavity, to produce results from both inside and out. The procedure provides both immediate and ongoing results.

The Fotona 4D laser non-surgical facelift tightens, plumps, lifts, improves skin texture, and provides wrinkle reduction on the skin with the use of 4 unique laser modes: SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO®, and SupErficial™. And, with Fotona laser facelift there is no pain and no downtime!

How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?


Some of the most apparent signs of aging show themselves around the mouth. If you are concerned with nasolabial folds (laugh lines), wrinkles, and loss of tightness around the jawline, you will be happy to know that this step will address all of these issues. This part of the treatment actually occurs inside the mouth, where we can get the best access to the targeted areas.

  • 2D: FRAC3®

This step treats deep lines and areas of irregular pigmentation. Many cosmetic treatments only have the range to handle fine lines and light sun damage, but this approach can make a big difference in wrinkles and dark spots. By doing so, it achieves smoother, more even skin. Like Step 1, this part of the treatment happens intra-orally.

  • T3D: PIANO®

Have you noticed that your skin has lost its structure over time? This occurs because sometime in our late 20s or early 30s, we start producing less of the natural filler substances that keep our it volumized. As a result, certain areas can start to sag, and our complexion can become dull. This step provides a solution to these problems by tightening the skin all over. It uses a heat-brushing technique that increases volume and provides a lift. The overall effect is youthful and firming.


One of the most effective ways to refresh the skin is by gently resurfacing the top layer. Doing so encourages your body to replace old, damaged cells with newer, healthier ones. This can help restore skin that has been damaged by UV exposure, acne breakouts, and the natural aging process. During this step, we provide a light laser peel to top off your renewal. This finishing touch gives you that special glow everyone loves.

Fotona 4D Laser Facelift – Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation

4D Skin Rejuvenation works with your body’s natural ability to maintain healthy, youthful cells. By stimulating cell turnover, it helps you eliminate tissue that has acquired signs of damage. Most importantly, the laser’s ability to promote collagen production gives your skin a boost in one of its most important resources.

Collagen occurs naturally in your body. Among other important functions, it helps your cells heal from the factors that cause aging, such as sun exposure. It also gives your skin its structure and elasticity. An abundance of collagen is the reason why young skin does not acquire fine lines or wrinkles. While you produce less and less of this protein over time, the Fotona laser can give your skin the encouragement it needs to make more.

Cell renewal and collagen production are important for fighting many different signs of aging. Because this treatment focuses on those aspects of your rejuvenation, you will enjoy many benefits. Here are some of the exciting results you can expect:

  • Tighter, more volumized skin
  • Improved fine lines and wrinkles
  • More even tone
  • Healthier appearance

What are the benefits of Fotona 4D Facial Skin Rejunevation?

  • It encourages the development of new collagen that is responsible for making the skin appear youthful.
  • It stimulates the growth of fibroblasts which are an element of connective tissue within the skin that ensures the constant production of collagen.
  • It helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up the skin from the inside.
  • It helps with cell turnover by eliminating the dead skin cells on the surface and provides a natural glow to the skin.
  • It gives a natural tightening effect on the facial skin.

Why Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center?

Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is the EXCLUSIVE provider of Fotona 4D treatments in Florence, SC, and the surrounding area. The reasons that the team are able to produce such phenomenal results are trifold:

Firstly, we are utilizing the most advanced Fotona aesthetic laser and robotic scanners with biofeedback technology.

Secondly we have more than a decade of laser experience.

Thirdly, we are using advance proprietary treatment protocols based on the most current research to produce exceptional results.

What is the treatment like?

First, all our patients that undergo any laser treatments will go through an in-depth consultation to ascertain if the treatment is appropriate for them. This includes any medical contraindications that might exclude them from the treatment to the expectations of the results, pricing, and the treatment process itself. All our patients will undergo a medical clearance by our in-house physician who will also be in the office throughout every treatment to ensure the safety and efficacy of the treatments.

Topical numbing medication is applied before treatment, but some patients may tolerate it without a numbing medication. The first step of the treatment involves using a novel SmoothLiftin™ intraoral laser treatment vector. This is followed by various treatment modalities from the surface of the skin including SMOOTH®, FRAC3® and PIANO® modes using various handpieces and state-of-the-art robotic scanners allowing precise photothermal, photocoagulation and photomodulation to occur at various tissue planes that are unique to those layers of your face not just the skin.

Am I a Candidate for the Fotona 4D Facelift Treatment?

Patients who want to get long-lasting results that make a visible improvement in the condition of their skin are the best candidates for this treatment. Fotona 4D is an especially good option for people who want to avoid surgery while still getting an advanced level of care. It is also excellent for people who have tried other remedies unsuccessfully. Because of its versatility, this treatment is effective for mild signs of aging and more extensive ones.

We lose collagen at a rate of 1% / year. So, collagen-stimulating treatments are absolutely necessary to keep our skin young and healthy-looking. So, if we start at Age 40 to notice changes, we are at a 40% collagen loss by that point. The younger patients have been learning about collagen stimulation, so they now are starting earlier. No worries we can catch up. It is the cumulative losses that you are noticing as differences in fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss or heaviness in certain areas.

The Fotona 4D facelift is amazing because it combines 4 different laser treatments into an hour in office procedure that thickens the entire dermis with the first 3 steps. Step 4 Resurfaces the epidermis. We do not talk about resurfacing enough. Resurfacing is equivalent to sanding furniture so that you are leveling out scratches and dents, improving texture and pigment. This amazing 4D Fotona facelift means that every level of your skin gets treated with every session.

How Long Fotona 4D Treatment Take?

This process is very quick and straightforward. You will only spend between 30 and 45 minutes being treated. For optimal results 3 sessions required. Sessions can be scheduled between 14-21 days apart. There is no downtime after the Fotona 4D Non-Surgical Laser Facelift, and you can continue your regular daily activities right after treatment.  Patients may experience some mild redness & swelling that only lasts one or two days. Some patients may consider this “social downtime” while the redness subsides.

How Long After the Treatment Will I begin to notice results?

For most patients, some results are immediately noticed. The final result will gradually appear over 2-3 months, with your skin continually showing improvement.

What Results Should I Expect to See from Fotona 4D Treatment?

The overall result is tightening, volumizing and restoring collagen to the face which reduces the depth of the nasolabial folds (the lines from nose to lips, and lips to chin), and helps restore lip volume. The treatment will also improve your skin tone and texture. It is expected that the Fotona4D treatment will result in tightening and increasing volume and elasticity in the deeper skin and tissues of the lower and mid-face. Lines around the mouth and lips will all improve. The best outcome can be expected for those who have mild to moderate facial laxity. There are some noticeable minor improvements after a week, but the greater improvements are 4-6 weeks after the first procedure, and more improvement will build with additional treatments. Even after the treatment series is completed you will continue to see ongoing improvements for up to 9-10 months due to collagen and elastin regeneration.
