If you are concerned about loose, wrinkly skin on your face, particularly around your eyes, mouth, nose and forehead, you are going to love Fractora for skin tightening. It is very effective at treating the loose skin under our chins as well, and it will tighten the skin on the back of the hands and other areas too.
Fractora can be used on both the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include...
forehead, crows feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, common treatment areas are the arms (bat wings), abdomen and above the knees. Any area of wrinkly skin, acne, or scarring can be treated.
Radio frequency energy is not reflected or absorbed by brown or dark pigment in the skin, making it safe to use in all skin types. Fractora is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improve skin tone and texture irregularities and to provide lifting and firming of the skin. Patients report that their skin feels smoother and more defined, with a reduction in wrinkles. Conditions treated by Fractora include:
Fractora uses radiofrequency technology applied through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area to provide optimal skin tightening and contraction in the deep layers of your skin. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated.
Fractora is a relatively painless procedure with minimal downtime. A topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort, although some areas may be more sensitive than others. Ibuprofen is also recommended prior to the procedure. Typically moderate redness and swelling should be expected for the first 3-5 days with possible redness remaining for up to a week. An emollient should be applied to the skin after the procedure for the first two days. Then you may resume normal makeup and products.
Most individuals receive 3 treatments about 3-6 weeks apart. Some conditions like severe acne scarring may take up to 6 treatments. Some results can be seen immediately but maximum results are achieved 6-12 after your last treatment as your natural collagen and elastin increase.
This depends drastically on how many sessions are needed and what areas of the body are being treated. Typical pricing ranges $800-$3600. Treatment bundles can be used to decrease the price. Financing is available through a third party: Care Credit
