Vector Face Lifting
The forehead comprises one-third of the facial area. When it is tall, smooth and even, it makes our face look more open and the image more luminous and fresh. However, it is not uncommon that our mimic activity brings wrinkles on our forehead and makes it lose its height even at a young age. With age, the soft tissues of the forehead can shift down and make the look heavier, making the eyelids more overhanging. To prevent and correct these changes, beauty specialists have a large number of procedures in their arsenal: from massage to botulinum toxin injections and even plastic surgery. If you look at each technique separately, they seem to be either too soft and require frequent repetitions, or on the contrary, too aggressive. In search of the golden mean a new technique was born – the vector lift from the FOTONA laser system.
What is a laser vector lift?
The VectorLift® is an innovative solution for non-invasive rejuvenation of the upper third of the face, namely the brow lift and upper eyelid thickening. This unique three-step protocol provides improvement to the periorbital area by raising the tip of the eyebrow and tightening the upper eyelids.
The procedure is year-round, painless, and requires no additional anesthesia.
The mechanism of VectorLift® action is based on an exclusive mode of erbium laser from the FOTONA system. The FOTONA SMOOTH® Mode pulse technology has established itself as a solution that delivers immediate results by simultaneously applying a warming and renewal-stimulating action affecting the superficial and deeper collagen. VectorLift® provides an optimal balance between immediate tissue thickening (superficial contraction), new collagen formation (long-term rejuvenation) and patient comfort, without triggering any side effects.

Advantages of Fotona SMOOTH® mode
VectorLift® is based on Fotona’s revolutionary SMOOTH® Mode, proven to be a powerful and effective solution for heating and stimulating both superficial and deeper collagen renewal using a patented pulse mode. The innovative Fotona SMOOTH® mode treats the skin in a delicate non-ablative manner, without causing bleeding and with a precise temperature control. Optical energy is delivered in a unique pulse sequence lasting less than a second, which prevents the increase in surface temperature and ensures uniform heating within a few hundred micrometers of tissue.
How does VectorLift® work?
The VectorLift® is a three-step procedure that extends the overall treatment area to maximize the lift vector by combining forehead and brow lift, eyelid lift and scalp lift. Involvement of the scalp provides a strong fixation and creates a support point for the lift thanks to the tight adhesion of the SMAS (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system).
The VectorLift® penetration depth is particularly favorable for facial treatment because it saves subcutaneous fat, which is vital to the integrity and beauty of facial features. The use of low-density energy flow and the hyperstacking protocol ensures the synthesis of deeper collagen, which enhances the lifting effect, and also ensures patients with comfort by gradually increasing temperature, thereby avoiding heat shock, which can be induced by powerful single pulses.
Number and frequency of procedures required
The vector lift protocol is comfortable and non-aggressive, allowing patients to immediately return to their normal lifestyle. The treatment is usually performed under local anesthesia, except for the scalp area.
Combination with other treatments
With its comprehensive approach to treatment, VectorLift® provides impressive and natural-looking results.
Given that this treatment focuses on the upper third of the face, you can successfully combine this protocol with treatments for the middle and lower face, such as Fotona4D®, which provide even more pronounced results.
