WHAT IS FRACTORA?
Fractora is an FDA-approved non-invasive resurfacing and rejuvenating treatment by InMode Aesthetics that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy (also called RF microneedling). Fractora is a fractional skin resurfacing/rejuvenation and subdermal tissue coagulation device that bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures.
Fractora is one of the most effective non-surgical solutions used to address skin problems such as wrinkles, sagging skin, pigment and complexion, active acne and acne scars, by remodeling skin tissue and stimulating collagen regeneration.
Fractora’s innovative technology allows you to have minimal downtime with maximum results. The advantage of its unique system is that Fractora treats both the outer and deeper layers of skin enabling more significant results than milder treatments like IPL. At the same time, Fractora has much less downtime than a surgical procedure or traditional Co2 laser resurfacing. The most impressive fact is Fractora’s capability to treat darker skin without causing hyperpigmentation, which is common with other skin resurfacing procedures.
HOW DOES FRACTORA WORK?
Fractora uses fractionated radiofrequency energy to deliver controlled heat to the deep layers of the dermis by microneedles. This works to revitalize and remodel the collagen, which improves the overall look and feel of your complexion. Fractora slows down the effects of aging on the skin and restructures the deep tissue of the skin.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Fractora can be used on any areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the 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 to reduce 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 ARE THE BENEFITS OF FRACTORA?
• Improved overall skin condition with enhanced complexion and texture, minimized pores, and smoother, more radiant appearance. • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles with a firmer and more youthful skin • Improved pigmentation and sun damages for skin revitalization/rejuvenation • Significant resolution of cystic/active acne and scars (improving acne scarring by 50%)
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 FracTotal Facial. We recommend patients combine Fractora with our PRP therapy to accelerate the skin healing process and enhance the overall results.
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.
