Skin rejuvenation can be achieved through abrasive resurfacing, plumping, or collagen induction therapy. The latter often involves the use of tiny needles that cause channel wounds. One of the lesser-known cosmetic treatments uses radio-frequency energy instead of lasers.
This is the Fractora skin therapy technique, and we highly recommend it for our clients who complain of discolored, wrinkled skin on the face. Fractora is especially effective on the upper and lower eyelids, around the corners of the mouth, and on the cheeks.
It is a procedure that allows the skin to heal itself without the need for total skin ablation in the treated areas.
About Radio-Frequency Stimulation
When the Fractora instrument is pressed into the skin, the RF energy is distributed around the subdermal tissue. The instrument itself can be adjusted for a specific needle penetration depth.
What the Energy Does
The pins produce a localized heating of the adjacent tissue, stimulating a response from the body. Nutrients are sent to the areas, and the result is an increase in the production of collagen.
The area becomes more supported by the subdermal tissue, and the skin becomes smoother with less visible wrinkling.
Pigment irregularities are completely treatable using this type of collagen induction therapy. The unaffected tissue between the lesions promotes faster healing because these tissues reproduce themselves and help fill in the lesions.
Benefits of Fractora Treatment
Because the instrument can be calibrated in several ways, the treatment is effective on all skin types. The gentle heat produced only encourages collagen growth, and it may result in a strengthening of blood vessels in the affected area.
What Patients Should Know
No pre-treatment care is required on the part of the client. After consulting with the client, we may suggest avoiding certain medications because of the risk of inflammation or bruising.
The duration of treatment varies according to the number of areas that require rejuvenation. Treatment time may also vary. There is no downtime after the treatment session.
We may ask the client to wear bandages or apply a medicated salve for several days.
The healing and tissue reconstruction continues for several weeks. In some cases, a second treatment may be scheduled a month or so later.
