Who is the treatment suitable for?
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. Benefits include skin tightening and minimizing of fine lines and wrinkles particularly the smile lines, jawline, cheeks, eye area and neck. It minimises pigmentation, resurfaces and refines skin tone and will improve the appearance of stretch marks and scars. We can improve the appearance of:
Discoloration and photo-damage
Is the procedure painful?
We have a range of options that depend on the power settings for your procedure and your sensitivity to pain. Many patients do well with the application of an anesthetic cream 30 minutes before therapy. For people who are more sensitive to pain, this can be supplemented with oral medications prior to treatment however most patients find numbing cream suffice. Patients who have experienced other methods of skin resurfacing typically remark that Fractora is significantly less painful and has a much easier recovery.
How does the treatment work?
Fractora™ delivers radio frequency (RF) energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the sub-dermal tissue. This creates hundreds of tiny wounds in the skin that stimulate the body to heal, promoting collagen restructuring and tightening the skin.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Downtime is minimal compared to other fractional resurfacing devices however patients should expect to feel a little sun burnt, flushed pink in the skin for up to 3 days post treatment. A mineral makeup may be used post treatment. Direct sun exposure must be avoided post treatment for 2 weeks. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day.
When will I notice results?
Results being seen after one treatment of Fractora is to be expected however multiple sessions may be required for best results. This will be determined in your initial skin consultation with one of our skin specialists.
Will I need maintenance treatments?
Depending on what we are trying to achieve with our Fractora device, your therapist will be able to provide you with the guidance of how often maintence treatments may be required if any. Some conditions we are correcting may not need any maintence at all.
Can Fractora be combined with other procedures?
Fractora™ is often combined with our Forma Facial, a non-invasive skin tightening technology that can improve the tone of the cheeks, jaw border, and neck. Many of our patients combine Forma with facial fillers, relaxants, chemical peels, enzyme therapy and LED. Our team can design a customized plan that meets your individual needs.
Is there any pre and post care required for the procedure?
If you are not using any active cosmeceuticals in your home care routine, we will start you on a basic pre-treatment regimen two weeks before you have the procedure to prevent hyperpigmentation, reactions and to speed up any downtime. A post treatment balm will be required to use 3 days post treatment.
