Recently, I had my first Fotona4D treatment at CSK Clinic with Dr Shiau Ee Leng, the Senior Medical Director of CSK Aesthetic, who has more than 20 years of experience. Needless to say, I was more than satisfied with the results.

What is Fotona4D?
During the consultation, Dr Shiau explained to me how does Fotona4D works in the simplest way possible. “Fotona4D is basically an innovative laser treatment that uses heat to trigger deep lifting, tightening and rejuvenating processes in major problem areas of our face.”
The best part is that our whole face is treated in just 4 simple steps. Dr Shiau has kindly summarised the benefits of each step so that I know what I am getting myself into.
1D Step 1: SmoothLiftin™
This step is done from the inside of your mouth. Hence, it helps to tackle problems of laxity around the mouth and jowls that other treatments can’t address. It also tightens the skin around the jawline and reduces expression lines by adding volume to them, much like a filler, but naturally.
2D Step 2: FRAC3®
This step precisely targets deeper imperfections (like deep lines) and pigments to restore a youthful texture and more uniform overall complexion.
3D Step 3: PIANO®
In step three, the heat creates an overall tightening effect and restores collagen in our skin. This gives us an immediate and long-term full skin lifting from inside out.
4D Step 4: SupErficial™
Lastly, a light laser peel is done to improve the appearance of the skin and address surface-level imperfections. You’ll immediately notice that your skin looks refreshed, tighter with an extra glow.
Consultation with Dr Shiau
It is a myth to say that young people do not have to fight gravity… because even in my 20s, I am experiencing problems with sagging cheeks and under-eye wrinkles, which Dr Shiau has also pointed out.
Thankfully, Fotona4D can help me with these problems that have been bothering me for a while.
After examining my face closely, Dr Shiau recommended Step 1 (SmoothLiftin™) and Step 3 (PIANO®) to target my problem areas specifically. She also marked out the most optimal areas to penetrate in order to give me maximum results.
There is also no preparation needed prior to the treatment.
Fotona4D Treatment Process
I was guided to a private room, and I immediately felt relaxed once I stepped into its comfortable ambience.
Dr Shiau seated me down, passed me safety goggles and began working on the machine.
Fotona4D is fully customisable. Its laser technology can be accurately tuned to varying temperatures when ablating your skin. Dr Shiau can then set it to a comfortable temperature to achieve my desired outcome.
As per the consultation, she started from the inside of my mouth. To my surprise, the experience was not painful at all, even though heat is being transmitted onto my bare skin. The laser pulses sent to my skin felt very precise and accurate, I could feel the areas that are supposed to be treated heating up, but to a comfortable level, while the surrounding skin felt untouched.
The treatment lasted for around 45 minutes. By the time the treatment was done, it was as though something was holding up my cheeks. The muscles around my cheeks felt like it was being pulled back, but in a good way, because it meant that the treatment worked. I was genuinely so happy about the visible results!
There was a residual heating sensation around the treatment areas, but it disappeared after 15 minutes. There was no skin damage at all and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Watch how the treatment is done under the skillful hands of Dr Shiau.
After talking so much about Fotona4D, I am sure the most pressing question is, ‘does fotona 4d really work? Here is a timeline of my results with some before and after pictures.
Immediately after Fotona4D
Not only can I feel the results, I could see the results as well. There is a very obvious change in the firmness of my cheeks right after the treatment. It is much more lifted now, giving my face more structure. The wrinkles under my eyes have also visibly reduced, and I look much livelier than before. You can clearly see the difference between the treated and non-treated areas below.
3 months after Fotona4D
3 months in and the results were still very visible, as though I had fillers to lift my cheeks. Except that this is non-injectable and much more natural looking.
6 months after Fotona4D
The biggest worry is ‘‘how long does Fotona4D last?’ I can say that Fotona4D last for a very long time, because I could still see the results after 6 months, even though the full effect has started to unfold gradually over a period of time. However, this varies across different individuals.
Fotona4D Reviews - Final Thoughts
If Fotona4D worth it? Here are my final thoughts for my Fotona4D reviews.
