Improving Skin’s Texture With Fractora
Skin is susceptible to many factors that can affect its youthful, glowing appearance whether it’s the natural effects of aging, acne and acne scarring, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, or a loss of collagen that is causing wrinkles or sagging skin. Most of these skin problems can be difficult if not impossible to improve or erase with topical treatments or over the counter medications and creams. Even though healthy eating, exercise and sun protection are important in protecting the skin and keeping it beautiful, some unwanted effects are unavoidable.
A new medical treatment known as “Fractora” offers patients with less than perfect skin the chance to improve those areas of their skin that need extra help. Fractora is a device that combines heat technology and dozens of small micro needles to penetrate the skin’s superficial surface, reaching deep beneath layers of skin to stimulate new collagen growth and development and in so doing, greatly improve the appearance of the treated skin.
This treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones and is effective for both men and women who have areas of their skin or body that are suffering from sagging, wrinkles, a lack of firmness or sun damage and scarring. Even delicate skin including the areas around the eyes or mouth that are experiencing wrinkles or sagging can benefit from Fractora treatments.
Prior to any Fractora treatment, potential patients should schedule an initial consultation to discuss their skin related concerns with their physician and determine which areas will require treatment and what kind of results can be expected. Results will vary patient to patient depending on their skin’s condition and severity and on how much skin surface area is going to be treated. Most patients will benefit most from several sessions in order to see optimal results.
On the day of treatment, the patient can first expect the technician to cover the affected area with a numbing cream to prepare the skin for the treatment. This cream is applied about half an hour prior to treatment. Most patients report little to no pain or discomfort during the process with most patients experiencing nothing more than a mild warming sensation while the Fractora device glides over the skin.
Many patients may see noticeable results after just the first Fractora treatment though several sessions will provide more optimal, long-term results. Results and treatment plans can be discussed with the physician during the initial consultation and as results are monitored.
