Fractora, the fractional renewal and resurfacing skin procedure, works to decrease wrinkles to minimize the effects of aging and helps the skin to regain a youthful look and feel. Fractora transports radiofrequency energy via a systemized group of pins, generating tiny micro-lesion dots and restricted heat to the treatment site. The mild heat produced by the pins in the sub-dermal tissue encourages collagen reformation for skin renewal and enhanced skin appearance.
The systematic disbursement of micro-lesions permits quicker healing than would occur if the complete area had been ablated. This means that most of the repair is taken place beneath the skin, which maximizes the results and minimizes any damage that occurs at the surface. This permits patients to have a faster and higher quality healing with treatments performed with Fraxel machines. At our office in NYC Fractora is a more advanced and intense level of treatment, which allows access to deeper scars and lines than with some other alternatives. The treatment is performed by Dr. Kolker with optional settings available. The dual options permit patients to experience more enhanced results with extended recovery periods, or less extensive downtime with a sequence of recurring treatments. In your consultation, Dr. Kolker will answer any questions you have so you can determine which application method best fits your lifestyle.
Patients experiencing mild to modest wrinkles, superficial irregularities, and loose skin usually elect this option. Most often patients who desire tighter, renewed, and more youthful-looking skin, without the facelift, are ideal candidates for Fractora in NYC. The Fractora treatment device is safe for use on any area of the body. In clinical observations, it has been used for the effective and safe treatment of the hands, face, back, neck, extremities, and chest.
Due to the adjustable radio frequency depth and various application tips utilized, customizable treatments are available. Fractora may be used in the treatment of areas that show thin or embedded wrinkles, intense discoloration, and scarring. The most commonly treated include smile lines, the neck, lower eyelids, mouth, and cheeks. The face and neck areas are often treated simultaneously. The treatment of localized scars that result from acne is also possible in areas of the nose and cheeks. Stretchmarks may also respond positively to Fractora. It is possible to combine Fractora with other treatments to amplify the impact it has on the skin. It can be treated as a standalone treatment or given a few days after receiving other types of treatments. Combining Fractora with IPL energy treatments or injections yields enhanced results known as a Fractotal facial.

Following treatment, patients will experience rejuvenated skin. You can expect permanent results but because aging occurs naturally, you will need treatments in the future to sustain your enhanced appearance.
Post-treatment, patients should use a moisturizer on the treatment area. Avoid exposure to any direct sunlight and apply a quality sunscreen daily. Sunscreens are also effective in decreasing wrinkles and slowing the signs of aging.
