Fractora™ is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses heat and a series of microneedles to decrease wrinkles and improving skin complexion on the face and neck.
What is Fractora?
Fractora is an innovative skin resurfacing procedure that delivers bipolar radiofrequency energy to the skin. The procedure is fully customizable to suit each patient’s unique conditions and requirements and is typically used to treat the neck smile lines, cheeks, and mouth areas of the face.
Unlike traditional radio-frequency treatments, Fractora has been shown to exceed the results of a CO2 fractional laser with less downtime, redness, and swelling. The procedure can be altered by your provider as necessary to deliver full-scale treatments at strategically selected depths, densities, and energy levels.
- Minimally Invasive
- Minimal Downtime
- Quick, In-Office Treatment
- Customizable (varying depth of ablation, coagulation, and heating)
What To Expect After
Immediately after your procedure, your skin may be tender and swollen. The swelling can last up to a week. If the procedure was performed on a higher setting you might require a bit of rest and downtime after treatment. Your results will not be immediately visible but will start to show after any inflammation and redness subsides, and will continue to develop in the coming months.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How Does Fractora Work?
A: Fractora delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin by way of a cluster of pins that produce localized heat and micro-lesion pricks simultaneously. The combination of heat and micro-punctures is effective in triggering the sub-dermal tissue’s natural production of collagen, helping to restructure the skin cells over time. The calculated placement of the micro-lesions permits the skin to heal faster and maximize the effect of the skin repair occurring in the sub-dermal level.
Q: HOW LONG DOES A Fractora PROCEDURE TAKE?
A: Fractora treatments typically last approximately 30 to 60 minutes, based on the extent of treatment required. A topical numbing agent will be applied before your procedure to help prevent any discomfort. The tip of the laser will be applied directly to the skin and measured pulses of radio-frequency energy will begin. You will feel a slight heating sensation on your skin.
