Fractora

Fractora is an advanced treatment used primarily to improve acne-scarred or wrinkled skin and works as a powerful method for anti-aging and skin-tightening through the use of microneedles and radiofrequency.

WHAT IS FRACTORA AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Fractora is an FDA-approved (as of 2011) nonsurgical procedure used to treat scarring and other skin-texture issues (like loose skin and stretchmarks) with minimal downtime and clinically-proven results.

Although originally invented for the skin-tightening, Fractora showed such incredible results for scar reduction that the technology is now being used as one of the primary treatments for it. It punctures the skin with tiny needles that deliver radiofrequency deep within the skin, using heat to stimulate collagen production which allows natural-looking skin-tightening and scar-depth reduction.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE AND IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?

Through the use of microneedling, our technicians use radiofrequency energy at a specific temperature to send heat deep into the skin to treat any imperfections from skin-laxity or scarring. The length of the procedure widely ranges based on the area being treated.

The downtime for patients treated with Fractora strongly depends on the amount of energy required to restore the skin, but after 24-hours patients are more than welcome to apply makeup again. The treated area should be moisturized regularly and a form of sun protection used afterwards in order to achieve best results.

The side-effects following the treatment can vary from patient-to-patient and will be explored during the consultation. The initial consultation for Fractora with a qualified-laser technician is the only way to determine if the procedure is right for your specific needs.
