Meet Fotona, our newest future forward laser system. From non-invasive facelifts to more area-specific rejuvenation, we are thrilled to bring our patients a truly innovative suite of services. Fotona treatments are comfortable, carry minimal downtime and can be a powerful alternative for those looking to avoid surgery, needles or anesthesia.

Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology is currently offering the following Fotona treatments:

  • Fotona 4D Skin Rejuvenation: Experience an overall lift and tightening for your face and neck, providing natural, long-lasting results.
  • Fotona SmoothEye: Target and tighten the delicate area around your eyes, reducing wrinkles and enhancing skin elasticity.
  • Fotona Vectorlift: Elevate your brows and tighten your eyelids for a refreshed, youthful appearance.
  • Fotona Liplase: Plump your lips and define borders without the need for invasive procedures.
  • Fotona Linelase: Soften stretch marks and improve overall skin appearance with this 2-step non-invasive treatment.

For optimal results, all Fotona treatments are most frequently recommended as a series of 4, scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. During a cosmetic consult, a treatment plan will be specifically designed for your personal skincare needs and goals. Fotona treatments are performed by our expert team of registered nurses.


Fotona 4-D Skin Rejuvenation laser treatments employ a unique combination to treat 4 distinct “dimensions” of the skin, rejuvenating and tightening from the inside out. A non-invasive facelift alternative delivering natural, long-lasting results.


Looking for a targeted treatment for the delicate area around your eyes? Fotona SmoothEye may be your answer! We use specific laser wavelengths to stimulate both collagen remodeling and new collagen synthesis thereby tightening the area around the eye, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.


VectorLift is a non-invasive laser treatment combining both eyebrow elevation and eyelid tightening.


LipLase is a non-invasive laser treatment used to stimulate both collagen remodeling and new collagen synthesis for fuller looking lips and a more defined vermillion border (the demarcation between the lip and the adjacent skin).


LineLase is a 2-step non-invasive treatment that softens and flattens the appearance of stubborn stretch marks.


As with most services that help remodel and build new collagen, results from Fotona treatments are typically performed in a series. Many patients will begin to notice improvements during the series, with final results gradually developing 3-6 months after their last treatment.


Prepare for your Fotona journey by arriving at your appointments especially well hydrated. Check out our online Pre/Post Care Library for tips on getting the most out of your treatment as well as protecting your skin and investment.

My family and I see Cynthia for our skin cancer screenings, botox, and filler. She is so detail oriented, kind, artistic, and lovely. We really appreciate her work.

Dr. Austin is, without a doubt, the most talented doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure of consulting. Her knowledge extends far beyond traditional dermatology - in her words, it’s her job "to not just know about the skin, but everything going on underneath it." If you’re looking for someone who truly cares, look no further.I bounced through dermatologists and medspas for decades, until I found Dr. Austin seven years ago. I came to her with the goal of "feeling confident without makeup." She’s helped me achieve that, and so much more. I now live outside of the Bay Area, and drive a couple hours each way to see her. Totally worth it. I’d take a cross-country flight to see her (and you should, too).She’s constantly reading new research papers, and gathering more information for her ever-expanding arsenal. She’s done extensive research specifically to support my needs better - as she does for every single client. She’s more informed than any doctor I’ve ever been to, and I seek out her opinion on every medical issue I face. Her work IS the cutting edge of medicine.My dandruff is gone. My keratosis pilaris is gone. My eczema is gone. My dark circles are gone, and my hair is thick again. My dry skin is finally manageable, after decades of struggle. I can go foundation-free if I want. My botox and fillers are flawless and understated, and my face is beautifully symmetrical. I’m aging gracefully (and look much younger than my peers, thanks to her!). I genuinely trust her advice more than the advice of my friends and family, and wish I had found her sooner.She’s encouraged me to pursue the diagnosis and treatment of multiple autoimmune conditions that were affecting my whole-body health, including Hashimoto’s, POTS, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Where some doctors lack in understanding, she excels. She’s suggested more effective workouts, simple routine changes, and medical-grade products that have saved me thousands of dollars.At this point, I give her a budget and let her do whatever she wants. She carefully respects my financial constraints, and addresses my needs without judgement. Her office isn’t cheap, but I find that every single treatment is far more effective than any other office I’ve been to. The lasers available at her office are some of the most advanced in the country. She administers injectables artfully, and does more with less. Everything is heavily based in science - and it really, really works.I have no doubt that Dr. Austin will continue to receive well-deserved accolades and recognition. I know I’m seeing one of the best dermatologists in the world, and I am so grateful. I can’t sing her praises enough.I’m honored to be in her care, and consider myself blessed to have gained a wonderful friend in the process. It makes me a little emotional to write this review, because she’s truly changed my life so much.Thank you, Doctor Austin! I can’t wait to see you next!

Dr. He is a very skilled cosmetic dermatologist! For several years I have been trying to decrease the natural signs of aging on my face-without success. Until I started to see Dr. He. He accurately pinpointed the simple steps he could take that would achieve the most gratifying results and then expertly followed thru! Thank you Dr. He!

Most Fotona treatments are comfortable with minimal downtime. LineLase treatments (for stretch marks or scars) are the exception and carry with them 1-2 weeks of downtime in the treated area.
