Fractora Laser Skin Rejuvenation | Cosmetic Surgery in St. Louis
Fractora Laser Skin Rejuvenation and resurfacing is a new cosmetic procedure that is used to improve the appearance of skin suffering from sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scars, wrinkles, and loss of collagen. The procedure is minimally invasive and suitable for all skin types and poses little to no risk to the patient. Though face lifts and fillers are still popular methods for creating a more youthful face, Fractora is growing in popularity due to the natural methods used and the minimally invasive nature with no downtime post-treatment. Anyone experiencing stretch marks, visible blood vessels, loose skin, smile lines, the development of jowls, or other common problem areas; can experience a noticeable difference shortly after their first Fractora session.
The Fractora Face procedure focuses on the areas of the face where most patients feel the need for improvements. The face is often prone to hyperpigmentation issues and fine lines around the eyes and the mouth. It’s also an area that is most often exposed to sunlight throughout the course of a lifetime, so the face shows some of the greatest signs of aging. The physician or esthetician will use a handheld device with a matrix of micro-pins that become heated as it moves across the face while stimulating collagen development in the deepest levels of facial tissue. A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to make the process virtually pain free. Patients experience a warming sensation, which is controlled to remain at optimal levels throughout the procedure. Many patients enjoy an improvement in appearance shortly after the first treatment is completed.
Fractora Firm works to tighten areas of the body that have lost their elasticity and firmness. Fractora Firm is often used on the body and is unique in that the tools used come with built-in safeguards so the physician or esthetician is able to determine the precise thermal temperature for optimal skin contraction with no risk of overheating. Fractora Firm can be used all over the entire body to create a firmer appearance overall.
How Does Fractora Work?
Fractora uses bipolar radio frequency energy that penetrates through the layers of skin by use of micro-pin electrodes that are connected to the handheld device. As the heat vibrates through the layers of skin, it causes a contracting of the area and in so doing, stimulates new collagen production.
What Are the Benefits of Fractora?
Fractora is a minimally invasive treatment, which means only a topical anesthetic cream is required and there is little to no downtime post procedure. Fractora is able to address a wide range of skin related issues including fine lines and deep wrinkles, pigment irregularities, blood vessels, redness, and texture. It’s considered a very low risk procedure, causes little to no pain, and is a cost effective alternative to procedures such as facelifts that produce similar results.
