Fotona 6D: The Ultimate Non-Surgical Facelift
While we all wish to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible, skin ageing is an inevitable fact of life. All too soon, we begin to notice unpleasant changes to the skin, whether that be sagging cheeks or lines across the forehead. If you are dreaming of ageless skin, keep reading to learn how Fotona 6D treatments can reverse signs of age from the inside out.
What happens to the skin as we age?
To truly combat age, we first need to understand what happens to the skin as we grow older. There are two main forms of ageing: intrinsic and extrinsic ageing.
What is intrinsic ageing?
Intrinsic ageing is the unavoidable, genetically determined process that naturally occurs with age. This usually begins in your 20s, when the dermis layer of the skin begins to slowly produce less collagen – usually around one percent less each year. As a result, our collagen and elastin fibres (the two building blocks of firm, youthful skin) become thicker and looser, which eventually causes wrinkling and sagging. In addition, our skin exfoliation process also begins to slow with age, meaning that dead skin cells shed slower and new skin cell turnover decreases. Signs of intrinsic ageing may include thinning skin, fine lines and dryness. Although you cannot prevent intrinsic ageing, it can be made worse by extrinsic ageing factors.
What is intrinsic ageing?
In addition to the natural ageing process, our skin is also vulnerable to external influences. How your skin ages is dependent on various factors and can be exacerbated by sun exposure, smoking, stress, gravity, pollution and poor lifestyle habits. As a result, your skin could look ten years older than you really are due to poor skin maintenance, such as skipping sunscreen or continuing to smoke. Common signs of extrinsic ageing may include loss of skin volume, pigmentation and discolouration and deep-set wrinkles. Luckily, you can avoid signs of extrinsic ageing with proper skin maintenance.
Reverse the signs of age with Fotona 6D
Combined, intrinsic and extrinsic ageing cause changes both above and below the surface of the skin. To rejuvenate the skin from the inside out, there is no better option than the Fotona 6D. This innovative treatment delays the need for a surgical facelift so that you can enjoy a more youthful complexion without the associated costs and downtime.
Treatments combine Fotona 4D with two extra double scanner steps to address common signs of age, including wrinkles, volume loss, skin laxity and uneven skin tone. The procedure is performed on both the external surface of the skin and oral cavity to stimulate collagen production from the inside out.
Fotona 6D treatments use multiple laser modes to tighten and revitalise the skin, each targeting a different skin concern:
Step 1: SmoothLiftin
Your Fotona 6D treatment will start inside the mouth to tighten the skin around the jawline and perioral region and reduce expression lines, such as nasolabial folds.
Step 2: FRAC3
The next step uses a fractionated laser to rejuvenate the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. This aims to target imperfections, such as sunspots, deep-set wrinkles and poor skin texture, by stimulating collagen production.
Step 3: PIANO
Next, a brushing laser technique is used to rapidly heat the deepest layers of the skin. This works to improve connective tissue and remodels the skin for a tighter, more lifted appearance.
Step 4: SupErficial
To complete the treatment, a light laser peel is performed to create a pearl-like finish. This final stage is designed to address surface-level imperfections, such as pore size and minor lines and wrinkles.
