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.

I am so thankful to the BACD team and doctors. My 2024 update is that after miraculous treatment from Dr. Austin, with the latest medicine and technology my skin conditions are essentially 100% cured. (They will need a lifetime of maintenance on my end.) My keloid scars are completely healed and that is really unheard of at other medical practices. I also had rosacea which has also 100% improved. Part of the treatment is learning how to care for and maintain your skin, health, and body.Special thanks to Nurse Ari, who is gentle and kind and makes patients feel cared for and their needs seen. When I have worked with Nurse Ari, my treatments have been relatively painless and my healing time was extremely quick. Ari remembers her patients and always gives them the best care.Special special thanks to the BACD office team who always greets me by name when I arrive and always helps with the questions and needs.

Dr. Shannon Watkins is excellent! This was my first visit to BACD, and I could not have been happier with her care. She addressed all my concerns efficiently, yet I never felt rushed. I trust her intelligence, experience and recommendations. Pinching myself that I found her. The office staff is really wonderful as well. Great follow through and very kind. Highly recommend!

I have been going to BACD for almost 10 years. I have always seen Nurse Mary Krempa. Many moons ago performed Mira Dry on me, which helped reduce my underarm sweating and gave me my confidence back. She has been doing neuromodulators on me for years now and always does such a beautiful and natural job. Mary is literally an earth angel and one of my fav people. I love coming in to see her regularly. She is gorgeous and so is the work she does!

Had a great experience with Dr. Austin! She clarified where my product regimen was lacking, prescribed a medication to mitigate this dry patch that always shows up in the same spot on my chin. She did 2 different fillers for different parts of my face. It’s looks great! I have an appointment in 3 months for some laser & a chemical peel. Can’t wait! Thank you so much Dr. Austin.

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.
