‘Smooth lines & youthful glow without downtime & painful surgery’
The 4D Facelift is a revolutionary technique that combines four different laser energies to rejuvenate, plump and tighten the skin without the need for painful surgery and long downtimes. The 4D Facelift is great for the mid and lower face to tighten and remove wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. This innovative technique is a comfortable, walk-in, walk-out procedure with minimal downtime.
What are the four different modes?
The first part of the 4D Facelift increases volume by stimulating the production of new collagen. The Er:YAG laser wavelength is used inside the mouth on the cheeks and lips which creates a tightening effect, firming the cheeks and reducing lines between the nose, lips and cheeks.
In this mode the Nd:YAG laser is used on the skin surface to target spots, freckles, small veins and to generally even out the skin tone and surface.
The piano mode uses a comfortable level of heat to stimulate collagen production on the skin’s surface. This helps to smooth the skin and reduce wrinkles, especially in the cheek and jowl areas.
The final stage of the 4D Facelift uses the Er:YAG wavelength again to smooth the skin and remove any dead skin cells. This step leaves your skin bright and smooth with a healthy tone.
How does the 4D Facelift using a laser compare to surgical facelifts?
A traditional surgical facelift involves a series of cuts to the face and head – which usually means you will need to stay overnight in hospital. The recovery process can be quite painful during the first week, where you will need to take it easy.
After about two weeks the swelling and bruising will have subsided, and the complete recovery will usually happen within a month.
To compare – the 4D Facelift requires no anaesthetic, is a walk-in, walk-out treatment and has minimal side effects. The 4D Laser Facelift is a great option for those who want youthful looking skin without the painful recovery and downtime of a conventional facelift.
What is recovery like after the 4D Facelift?
After the 4D Facelift you will probably experience a feeling similar to sunburn with some redness and tightness of the skin. This feeling will last for a couple of days before subsiding.
With the 4D Facelift there is no downtime or rest period – you can get on with your normal day to day activities straight away. However, some people choose to have ‘social downtime’ for a couple of days while they wait for any redness or swelling to subside.
