It seems like there is something new in the world of beauty every single day. Botox this, dermaplaning that. No matter what the treatment is, you can find something that claims to zap wrinkles, rejuvenate saggy skin, or get rid of dark spots. Chances are you have never undergone something as successful as fractora laser treatment.

What is fractora laser treatment?

Fractora is a treatment that is aimed at rejuvenating, resurfacing, and restoring the surface of the skin. This leads to younger-looking skin and slows down the aging process. This laser treatment is minimally invasive and helps to tighten skin, improve the overall texture of skin, reduce large pores, and lessen acne scars.

How exactly does Fractora work?

Fractora utilizes a laser device that is directed at the tissues below the skin’s surface. It combines radio frequency with needle-based heat to reach deep below the surface. This results in radiant, age-defying skin and is one of the only treatments to have success with active cystic acne.

Who is the ideal candidates and what areas can be treated?

The ideal candidate is definitely not somebody who has flawless, young-looking skin. This treatment is for men and women who are unhappy with their skin’s condition, whether it is due to wrinkles, fine lines, or acne scars. Like other skin treatments, Fractora can be completed on any skin tone. No matter if you have pearly white or jet black skin, you can benefit.

As far as the areas that can be treated, Fractora has been proven to work on any areas that show signs of aging. This includes but is not limited to the eyelids, neck, mouth, smile lines, and cheeks. Depending on the size and skin severity of the targeted area, you might need more sessions.

How long does it take to see results?

This really depends on each individual patient and his or her current skin condition. If it is a more minor skin problem, you could see results after your first session. You can definitely expect to see results after 3 sessions. The sessions only take about 30 minutes to be performed, and sessions can take place every 2-3 months.

This is not a treatment that should be done every single week or even every month. After the laser and needle penetration, your skin will start to develop more collagen and elastin. Although it is minimally invasive, your skin still needs to rest between sessions so that it can thoroughly renew itself.

Is the treatment painful?

Some people say yes, some people say not at all. This depends greatly on your pain tolerance. You will be given a topically applied anesthetic agent to slather on about an hour of the treatment. This will numb the targeted area so that you feel barely any pain at all.

Will it be possible to go back to work right after a Fractora session?

Technically yes, but keep in mind that your skin will look a bit red and swollen for about a week. Since Fractora is combined with needle-pricking heat, you might be able to visibly see some of the pinpoints. After 1-3 days, these pinpoints tend to crust over and the skin will start to peel. Try to avoid applying makeup until about a week after your treatment since concealer and foundation could slow down the healing process.
