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.

What is Fractora ?

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.

FAQ's

Fractora are either applied topically or injected superficially into the skin. So they are generally very safe if operated by a well-trained professional.
Depending on the different types of Fractoras and delivery procedures, it can be painless, with minor discomfort, or with bearable pain. If injected with needles, a numbing cream is required prior to the treatment and it will still hurt a little but is bearable in most cases. If injected with the U225 device, our state-of-the-art mesotherapy gun (or mesogun), you will experience minor discomfort if numbing cream is not applied or nearly zero pain if numbing cream is applied. It is completely painless if injected with JetPeel, our non-invasive, needleless procedure. Last, topical application won’t hurt, however, before the Fractora are applied, the microneedling or micro-channeling procedure to create microscopic punctures on the skin might introduce minor discomfort.
It depends on the delivery method to be used. For the needles and microneedling, the downtime can be 1-3 days. In this case, you might experience some pinkness, tenderness, and/or minor swelling or bruise immediately after the treatment, which should be resolved within 3 days. For the U225 mesotherapy gun and micro-channeling, it would be zero downtime to 1 day. If JetPeel is used, there is no downtime.
A typical Fractora treatment program requires 3 sessions to show optimal results and is normally performed 3-4 weeks apart. After these 3 initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments are recommended every 3-6 months.
One Fractora treatment session takes 30-60 min depending on the volume of the booster and delivery procedure.
Results become visible 1-2 weeks after the treatment, which will improve with every treatment session.
After the 3 initial treatments are done, the results typically last for about six to twelve months, depending on the individual’s lifestyle, age, and skin type.
It depends on the types of Fractora and delivery procedure, as well as the number of treatment sessions needed. Contact us about our Fractora package deals!
A Fractora treatment is a low-risk procedure. The main issues are swelling and bruising if needles or microneedling are used. Pre-treatment instructions:
  • To reduce the risk of bruising, avoid taking blood-thinning medications/supplements for one week before your appointment, e.g., Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, and fish oil. Do not stop the medication if recommended to take for medical reasons.
  • Avoid heavy alcohol consumption 24 hrs prior to your appointment.
  • Arrive makeup free.
Post-treatment instructions:
  • Do not apply makeup for approximately 24 hours.
  • Avoid heavy exercise 24 hrs post-treatment.
  • Avoid restarting ‘active skincare’ products e.g. Retinol, AHA/BHAs, for 3 days post-treatment.
  • Avoid chemical peels and laser or radio-frequency treatments for 14 days.
  • Avoid exposure to UV, and extreme heat such as sauna, steam rooms, sun beds, etc.
  • Use paracetamol to reduce discomfort if needed.
  • Use Arnica tablets/gel or Vitamin K to help reduce bruising if needed.

I have done 2 Cutera IPL treatments at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. My skin was much more even tone immediately after the treatments. Dr. Cathy Ding is so knowledgeable and professional. She will talk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during the service and how to care for your skin afterwards. I am going to see Dr. Ding for my 3rd session next week and couldn't be more excited. I would 10/10 recommend this medical spa in a heartbeat.

Anytime I consider getting a procedure done I do extensive research online. Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa looked like a high end medical spa with very good reviews. So I decided to do under eye filler with them. Dr. Murad was very good at the injection and patient as well. I'm extremely pleased with the results. Thanks!
