The medical community is constantly refining the treatments available. while the medical advancements are exciting, they’re also hard to keep up with! Fractora is a great choice if you’re looking to improve how you feel about your appearance.

What is Fractora?

Fractora is a skin treatment that’s designed to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. This helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, slow future aging, and restore a youthful glow.

Where Can Fractora be Used?

Any area of the body that needs improvement can be treated with Fractora. The most commonly treated areas include:

  • Upper and lower eyelid
  • Neck
  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth and Smiles Lines

How Many Treatments Will I Receive?

The number of treatments depends on the severity of the case and the desired results. Typically, patients receive anywhere from 1-3 treatment sessions.

When Will I See Results?

You may notice some results immediately following treatment, but full results will be visible 2 weeks after your treatment session. Treatments will continue to improve the appearance of the skin for up to 3 months after your appointment. That’s right – just a few sessions will be enough to improve the appearance of your skin for months to come!

Can I Use Fractora if I’m Receiving Other Treatment?

Yes, Fractora can be used in conjunction with other treatments. Your doctor may be able to give you multiple methods of treatment at the same appointment or separate them but just a couple of days.

Will Fractora Affect My Daily Life?

Patient downtime is slim to none using this treatment method. You may experience skin redness for up to 1 week following each treatment session, but makeup can be worn just 1 to 2 days after treatment to help cover the redness. No other side effects have been reported by patients using Fractora.

How Do I Care for The Treated Area?

Use a high-quality moisturizer each day, preferably one that contains SPF. You should try to avoid direct sunlight for the first few days following each treatment session. Sunscreen and avoiding the sun not only help slow down the aging process but also reduces your risk of developing skin cancer!
