3D/4D Laser Facelift
Laser Facelift Aesthetic Treatment
Many women think about undergoing a facelift at some time in their lives but for the majority, this is just an ‘if only’ consideration as most assume it to be too costly or too lengthy a recovery process.
However Fotona, a leading medical laser company and one of the oldest laser researchers, has developed its aesthetic laser processes to such a high standard that treatment is easily delivered by therapists in an aesthetic clinic environment. Smiles is very pleased to be able to offer this treatment here in our practice in Thorpe Bay and it is becoming increasingly popular.
The 3D Facelift.
This is a non-invasive, non-surgical form of skin rejuvenation. Results are seen almost immediately with minimal downtime required. Undergoing a laser facelift is preferable to dermal fillers for many women as it prevents the need for additional or repeat treatment at an earlier stage to maintain the improvements.
We would always advise utilising a free no-obligation consultation with one of our experienced practitioners. Choosing to undergo laser treatments can be a bit daunting and you need to be sure that you have chosen the one that suits your individual requirements and aspirations the best and important that you fully understand the processes involved. Additionally, we can carry out a patch test to be sure that you are suitable for this treatment.
The 4D Facelift
Using the nD:Yag and the eR:Yag, Fotona are able to offer a four dimension facelift to reach and treat deeper-sited tissue. This revolutionary treatment requires minimal downtime and enables full-thickness contraction of collagen resulting in improved volume to the area and a greater reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
During treatment, the laser ONLY targets deeper structures and this ensures that no damage occurs to the surrounding skin or tissue.
Fotona lasers have been designed with comfort and safety at the forefront and use a range of innovative hand-held pieces to enable the practitioner to deliver treatment to specifically identified areas. As a result, they can adapt and control the precision of the laser pulse to the requirements of each individual client ensuring optimal results.

We advise an interval of at least ten days between appointments. Typically, you will require several treatments, normally between three to eight, to get the best results.
Frequently asked questions
Does the treatment hurt?
Treatment alone does not hurt but you may feel warmth or a pinching sensation.
Will your skin peel afterwards?
Yes, some light peeling may be experienced for up to a week.
How soon afterwards can you wear makeup?
Make up may be worn after an initial 24 hours period of recovery
Is it safe to undergo this treatment if you have dermal fillers?
Yes it is safe but we recommend a 2 week gap between procedures.
How is 3D/4D facelift treatment delivered?
As with many of the Fotona laser treatments, this utilises the intraoral mode in conjunction with the respective additional modes that you may have opted for. This involves directing the laser inside the oral cavity and delivering a very gentle amount of heat to the inside of the cheek area. As well as a lower level of heat the laser is programmed to deliver at a slower rate. As a result, the inside of the cheeks will gradually tighten and firm the lower part of the face by increasing collagen deep below the surface. As Smiles combines both dentistry and aesthetics we are well-placed to offer this to our clients. It is not uncomfortable and there is only a minimal recovery time required.
3D Facelifts are perfect for those wishing to refresh and give their face a more youthful appearance but who do not need to improve skin imperfections such as scars, large pores, or age spots.
