Skin tightening treatments, such as Fractora and Morpheus8, may be for you! Dr. Nicole Kafka is the only physician on the Upper West Side and in Harlem to offer Fractora. Discover the possibilities of these unparalleled devices during your consultation with Dr. Kafka at KafkaCare in New York City, NY!
What Is Fractora?
Fractora by InMode is a powerful skin tightening and resurfacing treatment. It uses targeted radiofrequency energy, and it can be used on most areas of the body, including the eyelids and neck!
Fractora is an effective choice to address concerns such as:
- Acne scars
- Skin elasticity
- Skin texture
- Skin tone
- Stretch marks
Fractora is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that offers controlled healing of deep layers of the skin. During treatment, this encourages the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are import for providing skin with support and structure, but production naturally declines.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is another exciting technology from InMode. This is a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that remodels areas of the face and body by targeting areas of skin and fat. This treatment deeply penetrates the skin, but it affects the dermis very little. Morpheus8 provides comfortable, uniform treatment to enhance facial contouring and remodeling natural features.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Dr. Kafka performs Fractora and Morpheus8 treatments in the comfort of our Upper West Side office. Following a consultation to ensure this is the right treatment for you, a local anesthetic and/or 5% nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is provided to ensure your maximum comfort during the treatment process. The device is then used to deliver radiofrequency energy via microneedling. The device features a variety of tips that affect the skin at a range of depths.
There is no set downtime associated with the treatment process. However, you may experience some redness or swelling for a few days following treatment. The process may require up to two hours, but you should be able to return to most of your normal daily activities. If possible, we recommend allowing yourself time to relax and avoiding direct sunlight. Dr. Kafka will provide you with all recovery instructions, including how Oxygenetix makeup may help.
Results achieved with Fractora will vary for each person and their specific concerns addressed. However, most people begin to enjoy initial results shortly after treatment, and they gradually improve. Results may be enjoyed for up to a year. A regular series of treatments as well as follow-up treatments may be recommended to achieve and maintain the best results.

Am I a Good Candidate?
Fractora and Morpheus8 are safe and effective treatments for all skin types and skin pigment levels.While extremely effective, they are not the same as an operative facelift. It is important to approach treatment with realistic goals and expectations of what may be achieved.
It is important to seek the opinion and care of a doctor when pursuing any treatment. A personal consultation with Dr. Kafka can help ensure if either of these treatments is well-suited to you and your goals. She can also help develop your personalized treatment plan to achieve your goals.
