Fractora™ Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractora™ is one of the latest cutting-edge laser resurfacing treatments available in non-surgical medical aesthetics. It is the only device that combines minimal or deep ablation, coagulation, and sub-necrotic heating of the entire dermis. Fractora™ offers improvements for skin that would normally require two to four different laser technologies. This laser skin resurfacing treatment offers a wide range of improvements for skin concerns like fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels, redness, and acne scarring.
Ideal candidates for Fractora™ laser skin resurfacing are men and women who experience signs of aging like lines and wrinkles, texture or pigment irregularities, and other facial imperfections that may cause them to feel self-conscious about their appearance. It is important that all candidates do not have active lesions, a broken skin barrier, or any metal implants in the treatment area. A consultation with Northwest Aesthetics will determine if you are a true candidate for Fractora™ laser skin resurfacing.
How Fractora™ Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
Fractora™ delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy through a set of pins, creating tiny dots of controlled injury to restore aging skin. The RF energy generated by the Fractora™ pins reaches the subdermal tissue, promoting collagen restructuring and tightening the existing collagen strands. There is minimal damage to the skin’s surface during this treatment, which allows for faster healing time and more effective results. It is important that patients avoid sun exposure before treatment and during any stage of the treatment.
Fractora™ has a cumulative effect, meaning the more sessions received the more noticeable improvement is made. The recommended number of treatments varies based on various factors, including age, treatment goals, and the current condition of the skin. On average, a series of one to three treatments is recommended for best results.
After Fractora™ laser skin resurfacing treatment, patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day to protect their skin. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
Redness and inflammation will subside within three to four days. Some results can be seen immediately, but typically results are seen two weeks after treatment. Because of the nature of Fractora™, results can continue to develop for three to six months as collagen is regrown. In order to maintain desirable results, most patients benefit from multiple sessions scheduled four to six weeks apart in order to give the skin time to heal. With Fractora™ laser skin resurfacing, patients can look forward to a refreshed, rejuvenated, and more youthful facial aesthetic.
