Fractora Skin Resurfacing Washington DC
At SomenekMD, we offer Fractora, one of the latest devices to improve the appearance of aging skin while offering less downtime than previous technologies. Wrinkles, saggy skin and poor skin quality can lead to loss of confidence and being self-conscious. Fractora provides a superior solution to decrease wrinkles, improve skin complexion including acne patients, and reduce skin irregularities- all in one session. Fractora uses radio frequency energy delivered through fractionated micro-pins to resurface and tighten the skin and is one of the newest non-surgical solutions for aging and acne scarred skin.
How Fractora Works
Fractora delivers targeted bipolar RF energy to various selectable depths in the skin. Fractora meets and exceeds the results of fractional CO2 without the associated downtime, prolonged redness, and pigmentation drawbacks. Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with customizable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (rhytids and tightening). Clinicians can select between variable depths, densities and energy levels for results that were previously unattainable without excisional surgery.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Fractora can be used on areas that can benefit from skin renewal. 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.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending on your Fractora treatment regimen you can expect to have between 1-4 sessions.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
Is It Safe for All Skin Types?
It is safe for skin of any ethnicity with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation(PIH) which is common with CO2. It has less downtime or risk of adverse reactions compared to the best fractional CO2 lasers.
What Is the Benefit of Fractionated Energy?
Fractionated RF energy found in Fractora is a scientifically proven method that reduces wrinkles. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin, providing exceptional results with almost no patient downtime.
What Is the Benefit of Rf Energy?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. Fractora treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
Can This Be Used in Combination With Other Treatments?
Yes, Fractora can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Fractora is frequently combined with FaceTite to optimize the nonsurgical skin tightening result.
When Can I Put Make-up on After Treatment?
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?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
Each treatment lasts approximately 1 hour. After 1 treatment, you will see improvements but for permanent results, we recommend 2-3 sessions, spaced 3-4 months apart. There are 2-3 days of downtime after each session.
