Fractora™ Fractional Resurfacing (Sold by Aristocrat Plastic Surgery)
WHAT IS FRACTORA FRACTIONAL TECHNOLOGY?
Fractora Fractional Technology uses radio wave (RF) energy to remove dead and damaged skin cells and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This process reduces surface imperfections in the epidermis and causes the skin to gradually become firmer, tighter, smoother, and more voluminous. It functions similarly to BBL Laser Skin Tightening, but it uses RF energy in place of light energy. RF energy is extremely gentle; this treatment is not associated with any risk of burning, significant skin irritation, swelling, or pain.
During Fractora treatment, a special applicator containing several tiny probes is applied to the skin. These probes create microlesions in the skin, which permits the RF energy to penetrate deeply into the dermis. Fractora strengthens the connective tissues below the skin, rather than just tightening the epidermis. The micro lesions created by the applicator also stimulate the body’s healing response. Collagen is used during wound healing, so the presence of even a very small wound results in increased collagen production. Fractora is therefore capable of producing more pronounced changes in skin firmness and overall condition than many other nonsurgical RF-based therapies. If you want to have a face or neck lift but you’re not ready for facelift surgery, Fractora is the next best thing.
WHAT DOES FRACTORA FRACTIONAL TECHNOLOGY TREAT?
Fractora Fractional Technology is used to treat loose skin, wrinkles, fine lines, problems with skin texture, age spots, visible capillaries, and acne scars. As well as being ideal for use on the face and neck, Fractora can be applied to other areas of the body, like the chest and arms.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING RECOVERY?
Most patients heal completely from their Fractora treatment overnight. Recovery is not painful, but you may notice some mild redness immediately after treatment. Most patients return to work within one to two days after having this procedure.
