Are you tired of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and other imperfections that can make you look older than you feel? Our lifestyle when we were younger and our genetic makeup causes many of us to show these signs before our peers–or just before we’d like–but a traditional facelift is such an expensive and time-consuming procedure. Wouldn’t it be great to address these issues with a non-invasive, effective treatment that restores the skin from the inside out? At Lively Wellness and Aesthetics in Odessa, TX, we can do just that with the 4D Fotona laser.
How Long Does a 4D Fotona Facelift Last?
This is the big question, and the answer is: up to six months. While it might seem as if that’s not long in comparison with a traditional surgical facelift, you should consider the benefits.
A surgical facelift requires you to go through extensive preparation. Then there’s the surgical procedure itself, which is hard on you and even harder on your wallet. A facelift can easily run as much as $10,000. Then you have the recovery period, during which time you can’t really go out and do much. With the Fotona facelift, you’re done in just a few, painless moments and can easily repeat the treatment whenever you need a refreshed look!
What Is the Fotona Facelift?
The 4D Fotona Facelift is a way to immediately lift your face without any surgeries, incisions, or long recovery periods. Instead, this method harnesses the healing power and growth factors your body already has and uses them to generate firmer, tighter skin with better tone and greater elasticity. It does all this by stimulating the production of collagen, the building block of healthy, supple, smooth, and firm skin.
This treatment has no pain, no downtime, and has both immediate results and results that develop over time. Here’s just some of what it can do:
- Smooth wrinkles
- Remove fine lines
- Stimulate the production of collagen
- Tighten skin
- Reduce pigmentation
- Reduce nasolabial folds
- Accelerate skin healing
What Is “4D” All About?
The number 4 in the name of this treatment refers to the four different steps involved, each of which has a particular benefit. The steps are SmoothLiftIn, Frac3, PIANO, and SupErficial.
This first step is a painless rejuvenation treatment that uses the power of laser energy to rejuvenate the tissues inside your mouth. As these tissues strengthen and improve, this actually works from the inside out to plump and tighten the skin around the mouth, diminishing nasolabial folds and the wrinkles and lines around your mouth and chin.
This second step targets both superficial layers of the skin and deeper layers to remove imperfections and improve skin texture. By heating up these skin layers, Frac3 stimulates neocollagenesis, which works to erase sun spots, lesions, and areas of hyperpigmentation.
This is the third step, and here the Fotona uses an ND:YAG fractionated laser. This heats up the very deepest layers of your skin, which stimulates a full remodeling of their structure. This tightens your skin and causes it to produce lots of collagen and elastin, renewing you from the inside out.
This is the final step, and in this part of the process, a resurfacing laser peel brightens your skin and gives you instantly enhanced texture and tone. The other three steps have amazing results, but those results mostly need some time to develop as your skin renews itself. With this step, you can see the difference very quickly, and particularly if you choose to intensify it with a full laser peel.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
Most people who are interested in this treatment make good candidates for it. This is really a kind of middle step for those who are sick of the empty promises of superficial creams, toners, and serums but who aren’t interested in something as drastic as a full surgical facelift. It’s also a great choice for those who aren’t eligible for surgery.

How Long Does a 4D Fotona Facelift Take?
Sessions only take about 30 to 45 minutes, and for optimal results, you should plan on receiving three treatments. You can schedule these between 14 and 21 days apart. Again, we’ll talk with you about the individual schedule that is best for your needs.
After the treatment, you will be glad to know there is no downtime. You don’t have to recover from any anesthesia or spend time with your face in bandages. You can go right back to any daily activity you’re interested in right after treatment. Though, of course, you could also tell everyone you’re “having a treatment” and then schedule a few days off for yourself. We won’t judge!
