Wrinkle Treatment

Fractora Blog: Part 1

Have you ever wanted a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance with very little downtime? Fractora could be the treatment for you.

How does Fractora work?

Fractora is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that can be used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve the texture of lax skin and give patients a more youthful appearance. Fractora is slightly invasive procedure using a matrix of micro pins to ablate the skins surface. Research shows using this matrix of micro pins allows treatment to be carried out with minimal downtime, promotes quicker healing and can provide clients with exceptional results.

Patient – 55 year old Female

Prior to treatment the patient attended for an in depth consultation to determine if she was suitable for Fractora treatment. We discussed the patient’s main concerns – which included skin laxity around face and neck, wrinkles and some scarring. Patient’s goals – patient would like to see an improvement in the appearance of skin. After discussing varies treatment options including Botox/Fillers, the patient opted for Fractora.

In part 1 of our blog, we will discuss the treatment parameters used on our initial treatment and the noticeable results achieved before our second treatment.

Treatment 1

The skin surface is thoroughly cleansed before topical anaesthetic is applied. This is then left on the skin for minimum of 20 minutes before the process is repeated again.  After this time the excess topical anaesthetic is removed and skin is thoroughly cleansed for a final time before starting treatment.

Tip selection – there are various different Fractora tips available and it is important to select the correct tip depending treatment area/skin texture being treated. I opted to use a combination of 24 coated and 60 pin tips which are used to treat lax skin and fine lines. The appointment time was roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes long.

Patient Feedback

Feedback from our patient suggested that she was aware we were carrying out the treatment however she did not experience any discomfort. When asked to rate the treatment for pain/discomfort out of 10 – our patient described this as a 2/3. After care instructions were given and a follow up appointment arranged for 5 weeks time.

5 weeks later

The patient returned to the clinic for her review/second Fractora treatment on areas of the face. It is clear to see there has been a remarkable improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin on our patient’s neck. She was absolutely delighted with the results so far and felt like she had a ‘new neck’. A further treatment was carried out at this appointment to continue treating wrinkles and scarring on our patients face.

Inmode TreatmentsWhat is Fractora?

Fractora skin treatment is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles and fine lines to slow the effects of ageing and restore the youthful appearance of your skin. Problems that can be treated with Fractora include deep wrinkles, scars and uneven skin tone. Fractora can improve lines and wrinkles in the lower and upper eyelid, the forehead as well as around the mouth and the neck.

Fractora can also be used to treat the body, including the arms, abdomen and other areas that may need contraction. Depending on your specific requirements and results you wish to achieve, you can expect to have between 1-6 sessions in total.

Results can be seen immediately, however, they will be more noticeable after two weeks. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.

What are the benefits of fractionated energy?

Fractionated RF energy used in Fractora is a scientifically proven method that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. It is minimally invasive, using a combination of micro-pins to regenerate and restore the skin, providing effective results within a very small period of time. RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled and non-harmful way, revitalising collagen and other skin rejuvenating ingredients. At the end of the treatment, your skin will look fuller and radiant.

Fractora is very versatile since it can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Fractora can also be combined with additional energy treatments or dermal fillers to achieve a thorough and comprehensible makeover.
