For clients with first signs of an ageing or loosening facial skin.
The treatment is based on monopolar radiofrequency technology which triggers production of new collagen in your skin.
A sophisticated firm gel plate is used to heat up the inner layer of your skin and as a result, the skin stretches immediately. The plate delivers a controlled amount of energy from radiofrequency currents and heats up large amounts of collagen in the lower layers of your skin and skin fibres. The surface of your skin is cooled using the cryocooling technology.
After some time, the skin starts producing new collagen which causes the skin to stretch even further.
Thermolifting treatment consists in heating the skin to over 42 °C. In most cases, the procedure is not painful, but if you wish, we perform it after applying an anesthetic cream, which is effective in the facial area for about 15 minutes. For other parts of the body, the application of an anesthetic cream is not necessary.
The greatest danger is when the laser beam enters the eye, which can cause permanent damage to vision. During the treatment we protect the eyes with special glasses.
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience slight swelling, redness and an intense feeling of warmth on the skin. We recommend that you maintain your drinking regime throughout the treatment series, preferably with still mineral water. The treated area must be shaved without hair.
Radionfrequency lifting is to be avoided if you’ve recently undergone some treatments, such as hyaluronic acid or botulin toxin application. A period of 3 weeks to a month needs to pass between treatments, but we do recommend 3 months.
FOTONA dynamis laser therapy is contraindicated in pregnancy, hypersensitivity to light and taking medications that cause such hypersensitivity, dysplastic pigmented nevi in the treated area, implanted pacemakers, active infections and herpes zoster and herpes simplex diseases, severe diabetes and epilepsy.
We do not perform the treatment on tanned skin.

Usually, a total of 4 procedures is needed every 10 days. The effects are visible for up to a year. A visible improvement appears gradually in 2 to 6 months after the treatment.
In most cases, 4 treatments are required, 3-4 weeks apart. Visible improvement in skin tightening occurs gradually.
Your skin consists of three layers: a visible surface layer called epidermis. Underneath, a further layer can be found: it’s called dermis and is rich with collagen. The last layer is known as the subcutaneous layer. It contains fat and a network of collagen fibres.
In all layers, collagen is degraded due to the skin being exposed to sunlight, the ageing process or congenital reasons. That’s when your facial features seem to loosen and first wrinkles appear. Obviously, your skin is able to renew itself to a certain extent, but it can’t do much about how much collagen is produced in your dermis and other skin layers.
