Fractora is an advanced fractional radio frequency treatment which is widely being used as an alternative to surgery when it comes to anti-ageing procedures.
The treatment provides frequency energy to the skin through an array of pins, producing localised heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. This stimulates the skin to provide improvements on wrinkles and to reduce laxity.
The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation. This results in anti-ageing improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated.
Fractora can be used in areas that have fine or deep lines and wrinkles, scars or discoloured skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, cheeks, mouth and neck. Fractora can help to tighten saggy skin on the eyelids, face, neck, décolleté and hands.
What Can I Expect In A Treatment?
An hour before your procedure, an anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area, and then again thirty minutes later to ensure minimal discomfort, although a prickling sensation may still be felt as the treatment is carried out.
The skin is heated by placing a small handle against the skin. Radiofrequency energy is passed through a series of tiny bipolar pins; this heats the skin and causes tiny pin prick holes that the body naturally repairs.
This results in tighter firmer, younger looking skin. Lines and wrinkles are filled out, superficial sun spots and thread veins disappear, skin looks firmer and tighter.
There are very few risks or side effects when this treatment is used for skin tightening.
