What is 4D?
4D refers to 4 distinct treatments delivered in a single session using 2 non-invasive lasers to combat facial aging. These treatments can be performed year-round and require little or no downtime.
Mode 1- SMOOTHLIFTING™
This is a revolutionary non ablative Erbium:Yag laser that delivers thermal energy on the INSIDE of the mouth by heating up the mucosa, causing collagen stimulation from the inside out, compared to the traditional outside in.
The effects results in a plumping of the treated areas such as the nasolabial folds and perioral lines from the inside, similar to a filler injection.
The second part of the treatment uses the non ablative ND:Yag laser at a specific pulse mode that generates spikes of heat at high temperatures to complement the effect of the intraoral portion of the treatment.
This will also improve the texture of the skin.
This portion of the treatment uses the ultra long pulse duration of the ND:Yag non ablative laser. This causes bulk tissue heating from the outside, which will enhance the skin-tighteni
Mode 3- PIANO®
ng portion of the treatment. These all work synergistically.
Mode 4- Superficial™
The final portion of the 4D Skin Rejuvenating treatment uses the Fractionated Er:YAG laser to perform a light cold peel to improve the superficial imperfections of the skin. There may be some slight sloughing of the skin for 24-48 hours resulting in an overall glow to the superficial skin.
A more aggressive peel is also possible depending on the desires and needs of the patient (e.g., deep acne scars).
The 4D approach uses progressive laser layering techniques to provide a full-face anti-aging procedure with good clinical results and minimal to no downtime. The results are both immediate and long term. The treatments can be performed year-round on most skin types, including darker skin. Several sessions are required for optimal results. As with other therapies, additional sessions will result in further improvement. However, the results have been shown to be clinically and histologically superior to laser resurfacing alone.
