Fractora RF is one of the newest non-surgical methods 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 increased collagen production response. Generally, a series of treatments is required to achieve oprimal results. Most patients experience notably firmer skin, as well as improved skin tone and a more radiant and even finish.
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 discoloration complications. This opens a whole new world of opportunities for patients with dark skin who have been unable to find appropriate treatments for scars, pores, and sagging skin in the past. African-American patients who are susceptible to 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. The typical downtime lasts about 2-3 days, so you may want to schedule the treatment for a Friday, so you can 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.
“Fractora is nothing short of a miracle for people like me who have suffered from severe acne. It is a treatment that many people do not know about, and that is truly a shame because it has the ability to not only transform a person’s complexion, but also change their life. So far, I have completed three Fractora treatments, and have seen a tremendous improvement. Dr. Hellman improved my skin, and helped me regain my confidence and hope that my skin will go back to how it was.” *Results may vary
