Lip augmentation also known as lip plumping is a cosmetic procedure for enhancing the size or the shape of the lips. Laser lip augmentation increases the volume of the lips without any injection, downtime or pain.
Fotona 4D laser Lip Augmentation is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure which not only increases the size of the lips but also shrinks and tightens the skin around the lips. It targets the skin tissue on the surrounding areas on the mouth increasing the collagen and elastin production leaving it firm and tight. Fotona 4D provides results that are similar to more invasive procedures and it does not require incisions or injections.
What is Fotona 4D?
The 4Ds in Fotona refer to the 4 different treatments that are provided during this procedure. These are;
Each of these treatments provides a unique benefit to the patient. The treatments can be customized according to the patient’s preference.
How does it work?
Thermally induced laser heat energy is delivered to the lip area using the Fotona Smooth Mode laser. It is a gentle non-ablative laser treatment which targets the vermilion borders of the mouth, oral commissures, cupid’s bow area and the philtrum ridges. The heat laser energy stimulates the production of collagen resulting in more lip volume creating a fuller tighter appearance.
What does the treatment feel like?
The treatment is quick and comfortable and no numbing agents or anesthetic are required. It takes about 3o minutes or less to complete the procedure and there is no downtime. After the treatment the patients might feel some heat around the mouth area and on the lips but this subsides within an hour.
How many treatments are needed for optimal results?
Fotona 4D laser treatments are done once a month for the first 3 months and then followed by one session every three months so as to maintain the full volume of the lips.
What to expect during laser lip plumping
Laser lip plumping sessions are quick and the lips are treated using the Fotona laser system which delivers target heat pulses into the mucosa of the lips. This stimulates collagen production in the lips and the surrounding area. The treatment feels like warm water is being poured on your face.
After the treatment your skin might feel warm and be a bit pink for about 30 minutes or so.
