As you get older, the skin on your face may develop wrinkles and begin to sag. If you would like to correct these aesthetic problems without an invasive procedure, you should get a Fotona 4D treatment from RNA Medical Aesthetics in Johnson City, Tennessee. This innovative treatment will smooth away your wrinkles, tighten your skin, and minimize other signs of age.
What Is Fotona 4D?
Fotona 4D is a non-invasive treatment that uses a variety of different methods to improve the skin on your face. This is an outpatient treatment that you’ll receive during a quick appointment at our beautiful office in Johnson City. This non-invasive treatment will use laser energy to improve the condition of your tissues.
During your treatment, we will use a four-step process to enhance your appearance. During each step of your treatment, we will use different laser techniques to stimulate your body’s natural healing powers.
Step One: SmoothLiftin
During the first step of your treatment, we will use SmoothLiftin technology to improve wrinkles and other imperfections around your mouth. Since the skin in this area of your body is very mobile, you are likely to develop laugh lines and other wrinkles on the lower area of your face. In addition, it’s common for your jawline to sag as you get older.
During the SmoothLiftin part of your treatment, we will use a special device to send laser energy into the inside of your mouth. This energy will tighten the tissues near your mouth and jawline. In addition, the laser energy will reduce the visibility of the folds and lines in this area of your face.
Step Two: FRAC3
The next step of your treatment will fix your dark spots and wrinkles. During this part of your treatment, we will use our laser system to send additional energy into your mouth. This energy will smooth your skin and give you a more uniform, attractive complexion.
Step Three: PIANO
When you enter your twenties and thirties, your face will begin to lose volume. This change will cause the skin on this part of your body to sag. During step three of your treatment, we will use a sophisticated brushing technique to send heat into your tissues. This heat will lift and tighten your skin. After this step is complete, your face will look fuller and more youthful.
Step Four: SupErficial
We will complete your treatment by using a special technique to resurface the top layer of your skin. During the SupErficial part of your treatment, we will use a laser to send light energy into these tissues. Resurfacing this skin will help your body eliminate damaged skin cells. As we remove these old cells, your body will create additional healthy cells. This process will reduce sun damage and acne scars.
Completing Your Treatment
After we have finished all four steps of your Fotona treatment, you will be able to get up and leave our office in Johnson City. Each of these steps will be very easy on your skin, and you won’t need to stay home from your work or make other adjustments to your routine. Instead, you should feel free to go back to your workplace or continue with your other daily activities.
What Cosmetic Issues Can a Fotona Treatment Be Used to Improve?
This treatment will enable your body to produce healthy cells and ample amounts of collagen. These changes will improve your wrinkles, texture issues, and many other common skin problems.
Lifting Your Sagging Skin
As you age, your blood flow will become weaker and you will lose fat in your face. In addition, your skin will naturally become drier and thinner. These changes will cause the skin on your cheeks and jawline to sag. As your skin sags, the profile of your face will change.
Our rejuvenation treatment will help your skin stay hydrated and firm. As your body reacts to this treatment, the skin on your cheeks, jawline, and other parts of your face will become firmer and tighter. Your face will also look plumper and more voluminous.
Improving Your Skin Tone
Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin issue. If you suffer from this aesthetic problem, you will have dark spots on your face and other areas of your body. This issue develops when some of your cells start to make excessive amounts of melanin. Receiving too much sun exposure can cause you to develop these spots on your face. In addition, you will develop more dark spots after you reach the age of 50.
Our Fotona treatment can fix this issue by decreasing the visibility of your age spots. As these spots become less noticeable, your skin’s tone will become more uniform.
Decreasing Your Wrinkles
It’s normal to move your face when you smile, frown, or squint. When you are young, your skin will have abundant amounts of collagen. These fibers will prevent your facial expressions from etching lines onto your skin. As you get older, your body’s collagen production will gradually slow down, and your most frequent expressions will start to create fine lines and wrinkles in your skin.
Receiving a Fotona treatment will allow your tissues to begin creating higher amounts of collagen. When your collagen levels go up, your wrinkles and folds will become less noticeable.
Fixing Other Aesthetic Issues
Over the years, sun damage and acne breakouts can give your skin a worn, tired appearance. This treatment will fix these issues by resurfacing the upper layer of your skin and enabling your body to create healthy skin cells. As we remove your dead skin cells and promote new growth, your skin will become brighter and you will start to look more youthful and energetic.
Does This Cosmetic Treatment Take a Long Time to Complete?
This treatment uses a series of quick techniques to promote your body’s natural healing abilities. Since the laser system that we will use to complete your Fotona treatment is very efficient, this treatment will not take a long time to complete. In general, it will take about 30 to 45 minutes to finish your four-step treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Receive?
To achieve the most significant benefits from this treatment, we will advise you to receive multiple Fotona 4D sessions. In general, you will probably receive three to four treatments. To help your skin renew itself, you will need to wait two to three weeks between each appointment.
When Will I Notice the Benefits of My Fotona Treatment?
After you get your initial rejuvenating treatment, you should see positive changes in your skin’s texture and brightness. During the next two to three months, your skin will continue to improve as your body creates new skin cells.
How Long Will the Results of My Treatment Last?
It’s normal for your improvements to last for five to six months after you finish your final treatment.
After six months have passed, you can preserve your glowing, youthful complexion by receiving a follow-up Fotona treatment. In general, we will advise you to get two follow-up treatments every year. Since the results of these treatments will last for up to six months, these treatments will maintain your smooth skin during the next 12 months.
Is This Treatment a Safe Way to Improve My Skin?
This treatment does not require us to administer injections or cut into your skin. Instead, we will use our knowledge and training to send carefully controlled laser energy into your tissues. Since we will adjust each step of your treatment to address your unique cosmetic needs, this treatment will be very gentle on your tissues.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for a Fotona Treatment?
If you have wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or other skin issues, you will probably benefit from getting a Fotona treatment. To be eligible for this treatment, you must be an adult who is in relatively good health.
To ensure that you meet these requirements, we will examine your face and discuss your health before we begin the first step of your treatment. At this point, you should let us know if you have any skin conditions or other health issues. You should also tell us about other aesthetic treatments or procedures that you’ve received. For example, you should tell us if you recently received a facial or Botox injections.
Can I Use Other Aesthetic Techniques to Rejuvenate My Appearance?
At RNA Medical Aesthetics, we can use many sophisticated techniques to improve the appearance of your skin.
Laser Resurfacing Peels
Receiving a laser resurfacing peel can be a wonderful way to enhance your skin’s texture. During this type of resurfacing peel, we will use a laser to send precisely controlled energy into blemishes on your skin. This energy will improve the appearance of your scars, lines, and other imperfections without damaging your other tissues.
We can use laser resurfacing peels to fix lines, scars, and signs of sun damage. As we use our laser to gently heat up your skin, your body will start to make more collagen, and the condition of your blemishes will improve.
A PRP microneedling treatment uses growth factors in your blood to improve the condition of your facial tissues. During this treatment, we will take a small sample of your blood. Next, we will use a centrifuge to quickly spin this liquid. Spinning this liquid will allow us to isolate a substance called platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
Once we have finished purifying your blood, we will use a special device to make very small injuries in the tissues on your skin. We will gently massage the PRP into these tiny wounds. This process will help your body strengthen your skin and create healthy new fibers. As your skin heals, your acne scars and other imperfections will improve.
Endovenous Vein Laser Treatments
If you have varicose veins on your legs, you should consider getting an endovenous vein laser treatment. During this treatment, we will send laser energy into the walls of your varicose veins. This energy will cause the walls of your veins to close. Over time, this vein treatment will improve your blood flow and enhance the appearance of your skin.
Renew Your Skin
A Fotona 4D treatment is a very effective way to fade your wrinkles and reduce the visibility of other age-related changes in your skin. This treatment will use an innovative four-step process to renew your skin and help you look young, fresh, and beautiful.
