When Will I See Results?
Some patients see visible changes in their skin immediately. The most noticeable results will appear after two weeks. Depending on your skin and the results you want to achieve, it is generally expected to have between one and six sessions.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects from Fractora are limited to none. You may experience skin redness after a treatment that does not last longer than a week. Changes to texture and pigment may be temporarily observed but are not long-lasting.
Can I Combine My Microneedling Treatment With Other Treatments?
Yes! In fact, chemical peels and hydrafacial treatments can penetrate the deeper layers of your skin through the tiny punctures from microneedling. A chemical peel can remove even more years of skin damage, discoloration, and scarring after a microneedling treatment.
Did You Know Fractora also Works on Hyperhidrosis?
Currently, we offer two treatments for hyperhidrosis at Garza Plastic Surgery in Nashville: Botox injections and Fractora treatments. And we’re so excited that we can offer Fractora for hyperhidrosis! We understand that needles and injections are a concern for many people, on top of that, Botox injections have to be performed regularly. On the other hand, Fractora treatments only take a few treatments before our patients no longer experience symptoms.
How Can Fractora be Used for Acne Scars or Active Acne?
Fractora is an effective option to treat acne and the traces it can leave behind. It is possible to improve scarring and stop active acne and cystic acne from developing. This solution is possible because of the way Fractora treats the skin. Heat delivered to the skin shrinks oil glands and stops the skin from producing sebum. When sebum is no longer being created, acne will stop forming. Acne scars are dealt with as the skin begins to resurface after a treatment. Eventually, their appearance will be greatly minimized. The number of treatments needed depends on your skin’s needs.
