fractora skin tightening at Garza Plastic Surgery in Belle Meade

Fractora is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment. It is most commonly used on a person’s face. Fractora uses radiofrequency energy to help with discoloration and reduce wrinkles. After Fractora treatments you can expect to see results immediately. The most common results will be seen around two to three months after treatment.

What is Fractora Skin Tightening?

Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing. Fractora can be used in many areas that have visible deep wrinkles, scars and even discoloration on red and brown skin tones. 

The radiofrequency energy delivered by the Fractora microneedling device creates tiny punctures in your skin while applying heat. This process stimulates your skin’s natural healing factor, which increases collagen production. With increased collagen, your skin will begin to look younger as deep lines and wrinkles fill in. As a result, Fractora helps you look younger, feel younger and feel more confident too!

What areas can Fractora treatment be used?

Anyone that is thinking about Fractora should know the areas that Fractora can be used on. While Fractora can be used on any area of your skin that can benefit from skin renewal, the most common areas treated are lower and upper eyelids smile lines, forehead, mouth, cheeks, and neck area. It can also be used to help active cystic acne and acne scars, improving acne scarring by 50%. Fractora can be used on any face and body area that shows wrinkles or discoloration. 

Number of Treatments and Results

The number of sessions you will need depends on your personal Fractora treatment. Most people have 1-6 sessions of Fractora.  The results should be visible and can be seen immediately. Typically after two weeks of the treatment is when the results are most noticeable. Improvements continue to show after each session and can show up to three months after treatment and sessions. 

Can I still apply makeup/beauty products on after treatments?

While this procedure and treatment downtime is minimal, makeup can be used and applied 1 to 2 days after Fractora treatments. Most patients should expect to see a micro lesion a couple of days after the treatment and may be slightly red from the time of the treatment up to one week depending on the treatment and how your skin reacts to the laser.

How to care for my skin after Fractora Treatment?

All patients must make sure to keep the area that receives the treatment moisturized and avoid any direct sunlight. It is also suggested that each patient uses some type of sunscreen that is broad-spectrum every day. When wearing sunscreen you are not only lowering your chances of future risk of skin cancer, but you are helping those areas not wrinkle up, which slows up the process of aging.
