Fractora RF is the newest non-surgical method to reduce wrinkles, scars, and tighten sagging skin. The treatment can be tailored to the patient’s needs. For fine lines and large pores, Dr. Hellman uses a more gentle treatment protocol in which very fine pins resurface the skin while triggering a long lasting buildup of new collagen. For patients with deeper wrinkles and/or sagging skin as well as for those who suffer from acne scars there is a more aggressive treatment option, in which deeper skin layers are targeted for more significant tightening effect as well as tremendous collagen production response. Generally, a series of treatments is required to achieve dramatic results. Not only do patients experience a decrease in sagging, but the skin tone itself turns more radiant and even.
A special feature of this technology is that it is safe for all skin colors, from the lightest to the darkest. Traditionally, lasers and skin resurfacing devices can cause dark or light discolorations on ethnic skin types. Asian skin, Indian skin, and African American skin are very prone to these pigmentation problems. As a result of her vast experience with the Fractora RF device, Dr. Hellman feels very comfortable using it on any skin color without fear of complication. This opens a whole new world of opportunities for patients with dark skin who have been unable to find safe treatments for scars, pores, and sagging skin in the past. African American patients who are most effected by acne and acne scars can now safely and effectively treat their skin.
The treatment is performed with topical numbing cream to reduce discomfort. Treatment sessions take about 20 minutes and have a minimal downtime of 2-3 days so you may want to schedule the first one for a Friday, and be back to normal activities by Monday morning. The treatment can benefit adolescents from ages 14-15 as well as mature adults in their 60’s and 70’s.
