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.
What is the downtime?
Moderate redness and swelling should be expected for the first 3-5 days with possible redness remaining for up to a week; however, patient experiences vary. Makeup can be applied after 72 hours.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
In most cases, 3 sessions every 4-6 weeks are necessary to see results.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Some results are often seen immediately, but typically results develop approximately two weeks after treatment and continue up to three months.
