Fractora is unique in that it can lift and tighten the skin like Ulthera does while at the same time reducing scars and wrinkles like Fraxel does. It can achieve these results with less discomfort and downtime due to the nature of the energy employed. Fractora uses radio-frequency waves which heat the deep tissue to lift and tighten and is also capable of remodeling the collagen and stimulating new collagen to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars. The end result is a fresher more youthful look with more defined facial features and a dramatic reduction of wrinkles and scars.
Following the procedure your skin will likely be slightly red or pink with mild to moderate swelling and subsequent tiny dots that exfoliates over the next 3-5 days. You can usually apply makeup on day 2 or 3 following the procedure. The Lifestyle Center employees treated have been able to return to work the following day but depending on your public exposure, you may want to allow for more down time. This is something that can be discussed during your consultation.
Treatments can be targeted to specific concerns such as wrinkles around the mouth or eyes, or they can be performed on the face, neck and decollete all at one time. They can also be combined with treatments to restore volume such as dermal fillers or IPL treatments to reduce brown spots and sun damage.
This procedure is already one of the most sought after treatments by the employees of The Lifestyle Center which is always a sign of its effectiveness.
