FAQs

What is Fractora actually doing within the skin?

Fractora is a fractional system, thus, it works in a dot-like pattern. In these dots, depending on the depth setting, Fractora will remove all or part of the epidermis. Beyond this ablative zone, there is a zone of coagulation; similar to the change seen with some deeper chemical peels. Beyond this zone, there is a much deeper zone of dermal heating and it is this, that most sets Fractora apart from other fractional technologies. It is this dermal heating that leads to significant skin tightening. The end outcome of the above changes is unparalleled skin remodelling (primarily due to new collagen being produced) with improved texture, reduced pigmentation and redness and tighter skin.

Is there any downtime?

Usually, downtime period is proportional to the degree of skin correction a treatment can achieve. However, this is not the case with Fractora! Despite it delivering superior results to any other fractional system, the downtime is relatively short, making it suitable for even those with busy lives in the public eye. Skin is likely to be pink for a few hours to a day or two. You may see tiny pin-point dark dots where the pins have worked their magic. As the collagen and elastin are produced and skin repair occurs, so your skin will appear fresher and tighter. You must remember that downtime period cannot be guaranteed in any given individual but overall, patients are very happy with this aspect.

What areas can be treated?

Fractora can be used on any areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include
lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, lower face, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on your Fractora treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions with maintenance. Maintenance will be discussed on final treatment. This may include at home products and other combination treatments.

How quickly will I see results?

Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to six months after treatment.

What is the benefit of Fractionated energy?

Fractionated RF energy found in Fractora is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles.
It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin, providing exceptional results with almost no patient downtime.

What is the benefit of RF energy?

RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalise the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Can anyone use Fractora?

Fractora uses radio-frequency which is colour-blind technology. The benefit is that it can be used on all skin colours. The unique properties allow even darker tones to receive treatment with minimal risks.

Can this be used in combination with other treatments?

Yes, Fractora 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 injectables to achieve a more extensive full face result.

When can I apply make-up after the treatment?

Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment
parameters. A medical foundation such as iConceal can be used the next day.

What kind of Post procedure care is required?

You will be given clear aftercare instructions following your procedure. Patients should moisturise the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum, physical filter sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the ageing process. We have a full range of AlumierMD physical filter sun screens to suit all skin types and colours.
