Skin Tightening


Skin Tightening

The Fractora treatment uses radiofrequency to treat sagging skin, improve definition, and reduce the appearance of scars or discolored skin tone. A handheld device with small pins creates tiny punctures in the skin, sending heat below the surface to promote collagen production. It’s most commonly used on the face and neck, but body treatments can also include arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas that could benefit from tissue contraction. Some swelling and redness will occur and may take up to a week to fully subside.

The Fractora Treatment also treats acne, stretch marks, excessive perspiration (hyperhidrosis) and vitiligo.

Forma and Plus offer two configurations of non-invasive subdermal heating for collagen remodeling. RF current flows between electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience. built-in ACE temperature controls allow for the attainment of clinically proven optimal epidermal temperatures and, in addition, the exclusive capacity for prolonged exposure at therapeutic temperatures. Reach optimal temperature quickly and uniformly.

Fractora is a fractional skin resurfacing and subdermal tissue coagulation device that bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures. Clinical papers demonstrate outcomes such as: improvement in skin complexion, reduction in skin irregularities and restoring skin to a more youthful appearance. This all occurs within one session or multiple sessions, depending on patient preference. Fractora can be used on active cystic acne and acne scars.

The complete facial treatment series combining Fractora Resurfacing and Forma in a single session. Combine the best of tunable RF factional ablation with collagen remodeling to address all in demand facial concerns.

Fractora™ Treatment

We perform Fractora treatments in the comfort of our relaxing office setting. To ensure utmost comfort for our patients, we begin by applying topical or injectable numbing medicine. Once the areas are prepared and the appropriate Fractora treatment tip is selected, your physician applies the handpiece to the skin as it emits quick pulses of RF energy. Patients feel a warm or hot sensation as the RF energy permeates the skin. To ensure optimal results, we make multiple passes over each area. While the total treatment time varies with individual patient needs, sessions typically range from 45 minutes to 2 hours.

What To Expect After Fractora™ Skin Rejuvenation

Afterwards, treated areas will look red, puffy, and shiny for about a week. It’s important to keep the skin moisturized and protected with an ointment such as Aquaphor®. While improvements may appear quickly, the most noticeable changes may occur over the following several weeks as collagen in the skin renews. This gradual transformation may continue for up to 2 months. For best results, we recommend a series of 1 to 4 treatments, spaced 3 to 5 weeks apart.

Fractora™ Results
Our Fractora patients enjoy firmer, smoother, more radiant skin that contributes to an overall younger appearance. Patients can prolong results with follow-up treatments, proper sun protection, and an appropriate daily skin care regimen.
