Atlanta area residents who struggle with common skin conditions like wrinkles, acne scars, or poor skin texture have excellent options for treating these common cosmetic flaws non-surgically. Many skin problems can be treated effectively through Fractora treatments at Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Atlanta, GA.
Fractora Face by InMode uses cutting-edge technology that has a proven track record of slowing the effects of aging through non-invasive and cost-effective skin care treatments.
Through the use of radiofrequency energy, Fractora stimulates collagen production to improve the overall texture and skin tone. It is often used to reduce wrinkles and fade scarring, blood vessels, and/or redness.
Here at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, we are thrilled to offer Fractora to patients in the Atlanta area. Fractora can be customized to cater to each patient’s particular skin concerns and target their specific problem areas.
Good Candidates for Fractora Face
Fractora Face is a wise option for anyone in search of a non-surgical procedure for acne scarring, redness, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections almost anywhere on the face and body.
This treatment is safe and effective for Caucasians, Asians, Hispanic, African Americans, and other ethnic skin types. Prior to performing Fractora, we ensure that a patient is in good health and has reasonable expectations. Since Fractora cannot treat deeper tissues, we may recommend a facelift or neck lift to patients who would like to address moderate to severe sagging tissues or volume loss.
Fractora Face is used to treat deep wrinkles, scars, acne scarring, loose skin, redness, and skin irregularities. Patients must be in good health and have reasonable expectations for the procedure. Fractora does not treat deeper tissues, so Dr. DeJoseph or Dr. Daraei will advise you if a facelift, neck lift, or other procedure would better help you to meet your aesthetic goals.
Benefits of Fractora
The increasing popularity of Fractora is due to its ability to provide immediate effects of facial skin rejuvenation, as well as little to no recovery time. Furthermore, with Fractora Face, patients can obtain a more radiant skin complexion and project greater confidence in their everyday lives.
How Fractora Face Works
Fractora is administered through a hand-held device with a cluster of miniature pins. This device makes piercing in the outer covering of the skin and then warms up the deep layers of the skin, prompting the production of collagen by radiofrequency energy. After a Fractora treatment, the epidermis gets firmer and less wrinkled, creating tighter and healthier skin. In addition to that, this apparatus advances mending and lessens discoloration, rosiness, and marking on the countenance and throat.
Preparing for Fractora
Prior to a Fractora treatment, we may ask a patient to take a pain reliever to help reduce discomfort during the procedure. In addition, we’ll ask that they avoid topical treatments and exfoliation for five days before the treatment.
What to Expect From a Fractora Face Treatment
When a patient arrives at our office for Fractora, a topical cream will be applied to keep the treatment area numb. Once the area has been numbed, the doctor will mark the area to be treated and begin the procedure.
The Fractora handheld device is applied to the treatment areas, and the patient will feel localized heat. In order to make a patient feel more comfortable, a current of cool air will be passed over the skin during the procedure. As soon as all treatment areas have been addressed, the treatment is completed. Each Fractora Face treatment takes about 1 hour.
Recovering From Fractora Face Treatment
Fractora is a minimally invasive treatment. Therefore, it won’t cause skin damage. It also offers a quick and easy recovery. Right after treatment, we’ll suggest that a patient uses a light moisturizer to keep their skin moist. It’s normal for Fractora patients to experience a bit of redness, swelling, and temporary changes in pigment and texture. Fortunately, these side effects will usually subside within a week.
After your treatment, we’ll encourage you to moisturize the area of treatment regularly and avoid direct sun exposure as soon as possible. We’ll also suggest that you use quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis. Not only can sunscreen help protect from the risk of skin cancer, but it can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and slow aging.
Fractora is often used on the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, cheeks, mouth, neck, and other areas with scars, wrinkles, or excessive discoloration. In addition, Fractora can reduce the appearance of stretch marks throughout the body.
Your particular skin condition and goals will determine how many treatments we recommend. In most cases, our patients undergo one to three treatments.
Fortunately, the side effects of Fractora are usually minimal. Following treatment, you may notice red and swollen skin, as well as crusting and peeling. We’ll provide you with particular instructions on how to care for your skin after treatment so that you can reduce these side effects as much as possible.
A scar is the result of your body’s attempt to heal an injury, incision, or inflammation. The collagen in a scar usually has a different texture or color than the remainder of your skin. Fractora is a fractional rejuvenation treatment that improves scars by breaking down old scar tissue and controlling healing, creating a more uniform skin appearance.
Just like any minimally invasive skin procedure, Fractora is associated with minor risks. Some of these risks include swelling, micro lesions, slight redness, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and slow healing.
After Fractora treatment, there may be a minimal downtime period of three days to one week. Patient downtime will depend on the intensity of the settings we use and how quickly your skin is able to heal.
You are free to exercise once your skin has healed, as early as one to two days after the treatment.
Due to the fact that Fractora uses radio frequency wavelength, you don’t have to wear any special eye protection during this facial rejuvenation treatment.
One of the greatest benefits of Fractora is that it can safely be used on all skin types.
In order to improve the appearance of stretch marks, existing collagen needs to be rebuilt and new collagen needs to develop within the dermis. Fractora uses radiofrequency energy to gently remove thin layers of skin around stretch marks and break up the scar tissue. This process promotes self-healing capabilities and prompts the growth of new collagen. This forms new layers of skin to replace areas with stretch marks.
Fractora is one of the only devices on the market that can be used on patients with active acne who are hoping to get rid of their acne scars. Fortunately, it can decrease oil production by reducing the activity of sebaceous glands. It also allows active acne to dry up and can effectively treat scars thanks to its ablative properties.
You’ll likely begin to notice results once your skin has completely healed, about one to two weeks after treatment. We’ll inform you whether you need multiple treatments in order to achieve your desired results.
Regardless of whether you need one or multiple treatments, you can expect your skin to begin to continually improve several weeks to several months after treatment(s) as collagen forms and your skin repairs itself.
RF energy utilizes targeted heat to stimulate collagen production, leading to a more youthful appearance, and glowing complexion.
Due to the fact that downtime is minimal, you’ll be able to apply makeup one to two days after treatment.
Many Fractora patients choose to pair this treatment with additional energy treatments or facial injectables to achieve even better results.
