Fractora Skin Resurfacing in Green Bay, WI
Fractora by Inmode skin treatment is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that combines radio frequency and microneedling that reduces wrinkles to slow the effects of aging and restore skin to its youthful appearance. Fractora lets you look and feel younger.
How it works
Fractora is the most evolved fractional RF (radio-frequency) device that offers rejuvenation of the skin through ablation, as it dramatically improves its tone and texture resulting in a more radiant, youthful appearance. It utilizes bipolar RF technology that delivers RF energy in a controlled manner to the skin through an arrangement of pin electrodes. This energy can penetrate from 100 microns up to 1mm deep into the skin offering a customized fractional therapy with non- to minimally ablative effects. Then, those pins generate gentle heat and small micro-lesion dots restricted only in the subcutaneous tissues of the target area. In those zones of ablation, coagulation and heating, there is a promotion of collagen production and remodeling while the spared from treatment areas allow the skin to heal faster, minimizing the recovery time. Unlike other ablative skin resurfacing devices, Fractora provides a deep treatment result and the maximum improvement in the skin appearance with minimal tissue damage.
What areas can be treated?
Fractora can be used on areas that can benefit from skin renewal (fine lines, deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and discoloration). The most commonly treated areas include 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. Also, areas that can benefit from skin renewal and textural improvement including the neck area.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your skin condition, desired results and your expectations, the treatment protocol is customized for each patient. Roughly, the average sessions required are between 3-6 treatments to attain the best results.
Is it painful?
It is a safe, almost painless process. During the treatment, you will experience a warm sensation. Prescription numbing cream will need to be applied prior to treatment.
How quickly will I see results?
Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks, the most noticeable results appear. Improvements peak three months after treatment.
What is the downtime?
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?
After receiving your Fractora treatment, it’s recommended:
- CLEAN – Use a soothing cleanser or face wash with lukewarm water to cleanse the face and gently pat dry the treated skin until it heals. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
- HYDRATE – Use a gentle moisturizer or healing ointment on the treatment area until skin heals.
- MAKEUP – Can be applied 2 days after the treatment. Clean makeup brushes prior to using.
- PROTECT – Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks after. You should apply a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with at least SPF30, AT ALL TIMES when you will be outside. Use a physical sunscreen (Zinc/Titanium Dioxide) daily. Reapply often. In addition to reducing your future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
