Fractora is a cosmetic treatment using pulses of radiofrequency to tighten and resurface the skin. These pulses are administered to the skin’s surface and are channelled deep down into the dermis using fine microneedles. This helps access the deeper structures of the soft tissue, for a more thorough and comprehensive firming effect.
Fractora is a colour blind treatment that works on all skin types, by causing the skin to contract when producing newly-formed Collagen fibres. This then has a long-term impact on the skin’s firmness and texture, leaving behind a complexion which looks and feels healthier and far more youthful.
Fractora treatments essentially mimic minor injury to the skin, so the body then responds by trying to heal itself. This provides a boost to the Collagen fibres that are naturally prominent in the peak of youth, and therefore skin appears remarkably more healthy and in the best possible condition.
How long does it take?
Sessions of Fractora typically take no longer than 1 hour to carry out, and the effects are almost instant. You will then see visible improvements over the course of the next few months.
Are there any side effects?
As Fractora is somewhat invasive, creating superficial surface wounds so the body is able to heal itself, you may experience moderate redness, swelling, minor bruising, temporary pigment changes and/or pimpling. These however, are all likely to subside within 3-7 days of treatment, although can vary from patient to patient.
How long is the recovery?
You should expect to accommodate around 3-5 days worth of downtime following traditional Fractora, make up can be worn from day 3. During this time, you may wish to use a cold compress to curb swelling and redness, and apply ample moisturiser. This will help to promote rapid healing and keep the skin hydrated whilst it recuperates.
How long will the results last for?
Fractora treatments are permanent. That said, skin will inevitably become more lax as we age and additional treatment is recommended to maintain collagen and elastin stimulation over time. Revisiting your practitioner at 12 month intervals will be more than enough to keep skin firm, smooth and wrinkle-free for years to come.
