The Fractora skin resurfacing treatment is the first bipolar radio-frequency fractional treatment. Fractora provides dramatic skin and wrinkle improvement by fractionally ablating the skin and restructuring deeper tissue.
THE FRACTORA ADVANTAGE
- A safer alternative to a surgical facelift (when combining the Fractora and Fractora FIRM treatments).
- Fractora delivers improvements in the broadest range of symptoms of aging skin including fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness.
- Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
- Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.
- Variable settings allow your Physician to customize the level of heat and treatment depth for your needs.
While there are other fractional resurfacing options available, most help to improve one or two symptoms of aging skin. Some are best suited for treating wrinkle while others improve texture or pigment.
Fractora delivers improvements for the broadest range of symptoms of aging skin, all with one treatment. Fractora improves wrinkles, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness in a single treatment session. In fact, Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
Science & Technology
Fractora delivers bipolar RF energy to the skin through an array of pin electrodes with an ablation zone that can vary from 100 microns up to 1 mm. RF current flows between the pins creating zones of ablation, coagulation and heating. The gentle heating of sub-dermal tissue promotes collagenrestructuring for a deep treatment effect. The untreated skin around the ablation zones promotes fast healing of the micro-lesions to minimize patient down time.
Solid Clinical Proof
Histological studies show that skin ablation can reach a depth of 1mm with a coagulation zone of up to 100 microns around the crater. In combination with deep dermis heating this provides dramatic improvement of fine lines, deep wrinkles, skin tone and texture.
FRACTORA™ HOW IT WORKS
Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing.
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.
Physicians can offer a versatile fractional treatment that can provide non-ablative to minimally ablative results up to 1mm in depth.
Fractora 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, cheeks, mouth and neck.
RF energy heats the skin in a controlled manner to remodel deep collagen and improve the appearance of the skin.
FRACTORA™ BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
WHAT IS FRACTORA?
Fractora skin treatment is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles to slow the effects of aging and restore skin to its youthful appearance. Fractora lets you look and feel younger.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Fractora can be used on areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Depending on your Fractora treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-6 sessions.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONATED ENERGY?
Fractionated RF energy found in Fractora is a scientifically proven method that reduces wrinkles. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin, providing exceptional results with almost no patient downtime.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF RF ENERGY?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. Fractora treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Fractora can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Fractora can also be combined with additional energy treatments or injectables to achieve a more extensive full face result, called a FractoraFacial.
WHEN CAN I PUT MAKE-UP ON AFTER TREATMENT?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
