How does Fractora™ Fractional Work?

Fractora delivers RF energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated.

Who Is Fractora™ Fractional For?

Individuals who are looking for a non-invasive and natural looking approach to skin tone, texture irregularities and lifting can benefit from Fractora™ Fractional.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Fractora™ Fractional can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck.

Will It Hurt?

A topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort. 600 – 800mg of Ibuprofen is also recommended.
