Many people feel like they look older on the outside than they feel on the outside. The face, in particular, tends to show age. Fractora is a revolutionary method of skin rejuvenation that can treat several signs of aging. By stimulating the growth of collagen, this treatment helps your skin turn back the hands of time.
What Is Fractora and How Does It Work?
Fractora uses radiofrequency energy in order to kick your body’s collagen production into high gear. Microscopic pins are used to deliver the energy deep into the skin where it can do the most good. It is this extra collagen in the tissue just below the skin that helps your face look smoother, firmer, and tighter.
This treatment is a type of fractional resurfacing. This simply means that the pins used during your session are arranged in a pattern. Some of your skin remains untouched, which is why this type of resurfacing is gentler and easier to heal from. Due to the fact that we are targeting the tissue underneath your epidermis, you can expect effective results that do not damage your surface layer of skin.
Through this treatment method, Fractora has clinically proven itself to be effective at:
- Reducing skin irregularities
- Improving the complexion
- Improving pore texture and size
- Tightening loose skin
- Improving acne scars
- Smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles
Where Is Fractora Effective?
This safe and gentle treatment is appropriate for many different areas on the face and neck. Common areas people seek treatment on include:
- Smile lines
If you are looking to have your entire face rejuvenated, this is a possibility as well.
What to Expect with Fractora Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Step one is to sit down in our office where we can have an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for both you and us. We get to learn more about your medical history and aesthetic goals while you can get any remaining questions answered and ensure that Fractora is a treatment you would like to try.
When it becomes time for your actual treatment, the target area will be thoroughly numbed. If you have particularly sensitive skin, be sure to mention it at your consultation. On average, the treatment takes up to 30 minutes when you are targeting the entire face. Please plan on spending more time in our office, however, due to the time it takes for the numbing cream to become effective.
How many treatment sessions you will need depends on a few factors. The first is the severity of the skin issue you are trying to fix. The second is how aggressive you would like the treatment to be. Many people find that one session is enough for visible improvements, while others may need up to six sessions to see their desired results.
The recovery period after your treatment is short. You may experience some redness and peeling for one to three days. It is recommended that you refrain from wearing make-up for at least 48 hours. At that point, mineral-based make-up is considered okay. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure in the days following your treatment. Sunscreen will also be important.
Results with Fractora
Unlike plastic surgery, which yields instant results, Fractora typically takes some time. This is because your body needs to create the new collagen necessary for your skin rejuvenation. How soon the results appear varies from person to person. Some people are lucky enough to notice results right away. Most people, however, begin to notice improvements approximately two weeks after their treatment. The body will continue to rebuild collagen for up to three months, making your results even more dramatic.
Fractora as an Acne Treatment
Many people love this treatment because they can have it done to fight an active acne breakouts while improving the overall appearance of their skin. Be aware that this skin rejuvenation treatment may initially cause the acne to get worse. This is simply because Fractora prompts your body to rid itself of any impurities. Fear not, this is a temporary side effect. Within a short period of time, your skin will start looking better than ever!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Fractora Skin Rejuvenation?
Some non-surgical options out there are only safe for certain skin types and tones. That is not the case with Fractora. In fact, you can even have this treatment done if you have active acne. If you are someone who has struggled with stubborn acne scars or who would simply like to delay the signs of aging, you are likely a good candidate. The best way to know for certain is to schedule a consultation.
