Fractora Skin Rejuvenation in Boston
What is Fractora?
Fractora Skin Rejuvenation is a revolutionary skin treatment that uses radiofrequency in a fractional way to reduce wrinkles, improve skin complexion, and tighten skin. Fractora is effective for fine lines, deep wrinkles, scars, redness, and uneven brown pigmentation.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Fractora?
Fractora can be used on any areas that can benefit from skin rejuvenation. The most commonly treated areas include:
- Full face and neck
- Target areas of the face
- Upper and Lower Eyelids
- Forehead and Brows
- Cheeks and Lower Face
- Lip lines
How Does Fractora Work?
Fractora delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin through an array of microscopic pins producing localized heat through small micro- dots. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the tissue directly underneath the skin promotes collagen growth and tightening.
Why Choose Fractora Skin Rejuvenation?
The most desirable benefit of Fractora is that it is an entirely non-surgical way of improving all the signs of aging skin. Fractora does the following:
- Tightens loose skin
- Smooths wrinkled skin
- Improves texture and pore size
- Improves acne scarring
- Evens out pigmentation
How Long Will it Take To Heal?
Fractora™ Skin Rejuvenation requires little downtime. Most patients are red for 1-3 days with some peeling. During this time patients apply healing ointment followed by a bland moisturizer. Patients can use light mineral makeup 48 hours after the treatment.
Is The Fractora Procedure Painful?
The majority of patients who undergo Fractora treatments do not find the procedure painful. When you arrive at our office, we will apply a specially prepared numbing medicine to your skin that will minimize any discomfort you may have. For patients who are more sensitive, we can speak with you about other alternatives.
How Soon Will I See Results From Fractora?
Some patients notice visible results immediately after the treatment, but typically after 2 weeks some smoothing and tightening start to appear. Improvements continue up to 3 months after the treatment.
What Is The Cost of Fractora?
The cost of Fractora usually ranges between $1500-$3500 per treatment, depending on how many areas you are having treated. Please speak with one of our patient advisors for more information.
How do I Get Started?
The first step in discovering if the Fractora™ treatment is right for you, is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahn. During your appointment, Dr. Ahn will evaluate your skin and discuss the best treatment options for you.
How many treatments will I need?
Your Fractora treatment is tailored to specific skin concerns; therefore, the number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. Those with more pronounced skin concerns may need more Fractora sessions, while patients who are just beginning to see signs of aging need only one or two sessions to see their desired results. You should expect to undergo one to four Fractora sessions. A major benefit of Fractora is the minimal downtime associated with it, which allows you to enjoy your normal activities soon after treatment. This means that even if you are scheduled for multiple sessions, treatment and healing should not heavily interfere with your schedule.
How can I maintain my results after my treatment?
After Fractora, patients enjoy smooth, glowing, youthful skin; it is common to wonder how you can best maintain these results. Great skin after Fractora depends on several factors, including the following:
Sun protection: Exposure to the sun can lead to a range of skin conditions, including age spots and wrinkles. It is important to apply high-quality daily sunscreen anytime you expect to be exposed to the sun. For additional protection, consider wearing sunglasses, protective clothing, and wide-brimmed hats while outdoors. Also consider avoiding in the sun in the afternoon, when its rays are strongest.
Skincare: It is important to treat your skin with care at all times, but this is especially true after receiving Fractora treatment. If your skin is naturally dry, consider incorporating a moisturizer that is ideal for your skin type. If you need help getting started, our team can provide recommendations.
Keeping up with your sessions: If your treatment plan includes more than one session of Fractora, it is essential to stay on track. Though you may be pleased with your skin after a few Fractora sessions, you will need to complete all sessions to reveal the results you truly desire. Our team recommends the appropriate number of sessions based on your unique skin needs.
Why am I suddenly developing wrinkles?
Wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, but sometimes, troublesome creases and lines seem to appear overnight. Several factors can contribute to wrinkles, such as:
Aging: Wrinkles are the result of slow skin cell production, the natural thinning of the skin’s layers, and a reduction in the production of collagen.
Expression lines: Additionally, wrinkles develop due to muscle contractions on the face, such as when you laugh or frown. Creases on the forehead, near the eyes, and around the mouth appear and become more noticeable with time.
Sun exposure: When your skin is exposed to the sun without the protection of sunscreen, clothing, or shade, it can lead to signs of premature aging. UV light affects collagen fibers, which is key to keeping the skin looking plump and healthy.
Smoking: Smoking can cause a decrease in collagen production, leading to unsightly wrinkles on the face and body.
Environment: Pollutants in the environment, such as soot, can also affect the production of collagen.
What if I have other cosmetic concerns?
It is understandable that patients who are interested in Fractora treatments may have other cosmetic concerns that they would like addressed, especially if a comprehensive result can be achieved in less time. Depending on your needs, Fractora can be combined with other anti-aging treatments. Our experts can determine which combination of treatments can give you the results you desire.
