Fractora treatments designed to reduce wrinkles, acne, scarring, and discoloration use fractionated RF energy to heat the deep layers of skin and encourage collagen production. This aims to tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, and give your skin a more even tone. This is done in a very controlled way so that only the areas that require treatment are affected.
A matrix of micro-pins is used to treat the skin and resurface it. This is a far better alternative than invasive treatments like surgery, which have a long healing period.
Individual results can vary. Some patients notice a difference almost immediately when they have Fractora treatments. After around two weeks, you should see a big reduction in wrinkles, acne, scarring, and discoloration. Your skin will continue to improve for up to three months after your treatment is completed.
The number of treatments that you need will depend on your specific skin issues, but most patients can expect to have somewhere between one and six treatments. If you have a few small wrinkles and lines and you want smoother skin, you should not need too many treatments. However, if you suffer from bad acne and you have a lot of scarring, you will most likely need more treatments if you want to see long-term results.
Some invasive treatments cannot be used alongside other treatments, but that is not the case with Fractora. In fact, certain skin issues, like extensive scarring, may require a comprehensive program with multiple treatments. Additional energy treatments or injection treatments can work well when used in conjunction with Fractora treatments to create a full FracTotal Facial.
Fractora is such a great treatment because there are no long recovery periods. However, you do need to follow a good aftercare program if you want the best results. Protecting yourself from sun exposure is very important after a Fractora treatment, so make sure that you are always using a good quality sunscreen every day. This will prevent skin damage after your treatment and also reduce the aging effects caused by sun damage.
