Fractora is a skin treatment commonly used to treat acne scars, as well as pigment changes. It delivers fractional radio-frequency (RF) energy through mico-pins down into the skin to promote resurfacing. The RF energy provides gentle heat deep in the skin in a precise way to stimulate collagen restructuring and thus a smoother skin surface. Fractora delivers the RF energy in a fractionated pattern, meaning in columns, leaving healthy untreated tissue around the micro-pins to promote faster healing. Fractora is one of the most advanced fractional RF treatments used to treat acne scars and provide skin resurfacing.
Treatments are customized for each patient, based upon the extensiveness of the scarring. Most patients can expect to have 1-6 treatments several weeks to a month apart. There is little downtime, much less than more ablative treatments, like CO2. Patients should expect to be red for a few days following treatments.
In addition to acne scarring, Fractora is an excellent treatment for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation to included enlarged pores, pigment changes, as well as fine and deep wrinkles.
Lumecca is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment, performed to improve skin conditions such as rosacea, hyperpigmentation, telangiectasias (“spider veins,” “broken capillaries”), and photo damage caused by the sun. Lumecca is the most powerful IPL treatment available, with many patients seeing dramatic improvement in skin tone in only 1-2 treatments.
