FAQs: Fractora RF Skin Resurfacing in College Station, Texas at Artisan’s Rejuvenation Med Spa
What is Fractora?
Fractora is a radiofrequency skin resurfacing treatment that brings about the same results as CO₂ resurfacing without the extended redness, downtime and negative side effects associated with it. Fractora can treat a broad range of skin concerns and leave patients looking and feeling years younger. One of Fractora’s greatest strengths is its customizability: the depth, intensity and length of each treatment can be adjusted to target the specific complexion concerns of each patient. This flexibility allows Fractora to treat a broad range of aesthetic issues.
How does Fractora work?
Fractora uses two different techniques to stimulate skin renewal: targeted bipolar radiofrequency energy and microneedling. Both of these techniques stimulate healing, but in different ways. Radiofrequency energy passes through the upper layers of the skin, heating up its deepest layers and structures. This heat stimulates the creation of collagen and triggers other natural healing responses within the body. Microneedling uses tiny pins to further trigger this healing response by creating thousands of tiny micro lesions on the surface of the skin. Healing factors rush to these microlesions, repairing and rejuvenating the existing skin to stimulate healing in all levels and layers of the skin.
Is Fractora safe for darker skin types?
One of Fractora’s top benefits is that it’s capable of safely treating a broad range of patients. While CO₂ laser skin resurfacing can be less effective and potentially damaging to individuals with darker skin, Fractora can be used on all different skin types, including skin type VI, with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), a common complication with laser skin resurfacing methods.
Is Fractora painful?
Fractora is a well-tolerated treatment. Depending on the depth of skin that needs to be targeted during treatment, an anesthetic or numbing cream may be used to ensure your comfort throughout treatment.
Is there downtime with Fractora?
Complete skin renewal and healing following each session typically takes between seven and 10 days, with some deeper treatments taking longer.
What are the most common side effects with Fractora?
Swelling and bruising are common within the first week.
When will I see results with Fractora?
While results of the treatment are not immediately apparent, they should be visible within two weeks of treatment with full results showing after six months, as your skin continues to grow vibrant new collagen and elastin.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients need a series of one to four treatments, depending on their unique needs and goals.
