Improved Skin Appearance With Fractora

fractora-dr wrightIf your skin looks older than you are due to hyperpigmentation, scarring, sagging skin, wrinkles, sun damage or lack of collagen, you may be frustrated by what seems like a lack of legitimate options for truly repairing the damage that has been done and getting your skin’s health back. Aging often has drastic effects on the appearance of the skin, but aging isn’t the only culprit and even those who are relatively young may have skin issues that hurt their self-confidence and create a skin’s surface that is less than youthful looking.

Fractora is a procedure that can drastically improve the look of skin that is suffering from a lack of collagen, wrinkles, sagging, pigmentation problems and scars due to acne or accidents. This minimally invasive procedure can improve not only the face but also areas of the body that have lost some of their lift and appear older and less firm than desired. As a relatively new cosmetic procedure, Fractora uses a device that is equipped with small, heated micro pins that combine to penetrate through the deepest levels of the skin and stimulate new collagen growth painlessly and quickly. This minimally invasive treatment can be performed on both men and women and all skin types though the amount of treatments required to achieve optimal results will depend on the person and their individual skin condition.

Each Fractora treatment begins with the technician applying a numbing cream to the designated area about half an hour to 45 minutes prior to the procedure. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, the technician will gently glide the tool over the skin’s surface. Patients will experience minimal pain if any at all though most patients won’t experience much more than a mild warming sensation during the treatment process.

Results will of course vary patient to patient depending on the seriousness of the condition and how much of the body is being treated. Each patient may respond somewhat differently to the Fractora treatments and some patients may require several additional treatments to see the full results while others may see optimal results in as few as one or two sessions.

Schedule an initial consultation with your doctor to discuss your skin insecurities and issues and to see if Fractora will be right for your circumstances. Your doctor can give you an idea of what kind of results you can expect for your skin with Fractora.
