What is Fractora?
Fractora is a fractional skin-resurfacing device that targets wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet and other facial flaws with targeted RF energy, for a fresh, youthful look to aging or damaged skin.
What does it address?
Fractora treatments produce a remarkable degree of skin renewal. The most common issues improved with a Fractora treatment include wrinkles, lines, sun spots, scars, and aging skin on the face and neck. Fractora treatments will improve the quality of skin on the lower and upper eyelids, smooth laugh lines, and smooth wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks, lips, and neck area. Fractora will create a more attractive, even skin tone, and with several treatments, can dramatically reduce the appearance of acne scarring.
How does Fractora work?
Using fractionated RF energy, the Fractora device delivers heat through tiny pins to varying layers of your skin. When the heat reaches just below the surface of your skin, collagen production is stimulated, leading to firmer, more youthful skin. At the same time, the RF energy removes the damaged skin on the surface. The result is an even skin tone, with surface skin discolorations removed, for facial rejuvenation at its finest.
What is the treatment time?
Fractora treatments are customized to match your individual skin condition. Each treatment requires about approximately 30 minutes to complete. Your provider will recommend the necessary number of treatments based on your specific concerns.
How long should I expect for recovery?
Downtime may vary depending on the condition treated. After your treatment, you may experience flushed skin in the treated area. Your skin may be sensitive and feel slightly warm. It is normal to experience some swelling with visible micro lesions. These side effects should only last for a couple of days to one week. It is recommended that you wait for 48 hours before applying any makeup or skincare products.
