What is Fractora?

Fractora by InMode is a non-invasive or minimally invasive fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other skin imperfections. It is a type of fractional RF micro-needling that delivers RF energy deep into the skin through tiny pins, creating micro-channels in the skin, and promoting collagen and elastin production.

Fractora is designed to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, acne scars, and other signs of aging or skin damage. It can be used on various body areas, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and other areas where skin rejuvenation is desired.

The potential benefits of Fractora by InMode may include:

• Skin rejuvenation: Fractora's fractional RF technology stimulates collagen production, leading to improved skin tone, texture, and overall appearance. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, and improve skin firmness and elasticity.

• Customizable treatment: Fractora offers customizable treatment options, allowing the healthcare professional to adjust the depth of the treatment and the intensity of the RF energy to tailor the treatment to the patient's specific skin concerns and treatment goals.

• Minimally invasive: Fractora is a minimally invasive treatment that uses microscopic pins to create controlled micro-lesions in the skin, which can promote collagen production and skin resurfacing without the need for extensive downtime or recovery.

• Versatility: Fractora can be used on various areas of the body and is suitable for different skin types, making it a versatile treatment option for a wide range of patients.

How is the treatment performed?

During a Fractora treatment, a handheld device with an array of microscopic pins is used to deliver RF energy to the targeted treatment areas. The pins create controlled micro-lesions in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin resurfacing. The RF energy also heats the deeper layers of the skin, providing additional skin tightening benefits.

Fractora is a minimally invasive treatment that typically requires topical numbing cream or local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. The treatment is performed in a clinical setting by a qualified healthcare professional or a cosmetic physician. The downtime associated with Fractora is generally minimal, with most patients experiencing mild redness and swelling that typically resolve within a few days to a week.

What areas can be treated?

Fractora can be used on areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.

What to expect after the treatment?

After the Fractora treatment, the patient may experience mild redness, swelling, and some crusting, which usually subsides within a few days. It's important to follow any post-treatment care instructions the esthecian provides, which may include avoiding excessive sun exposure, using moisturizers or other skin care products as recommended, and staying hydrated.

How many sessions is needed for an optimal result?

A series of Fractora treatments spaced a few weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results, depending on the patient's skin condition and treatment goals. The number of treatments needed may vary, and the esthetician will determine the appropriate treatment plan for each patient.

Before your Fractora treatment

Avoid Blood Thinners: Avoid certain medications, especially those that increase the risk of bleeding or interfere with the procedure. This may include blood thinners and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from excessive sun exposure and use sunscreen with a high SPF (minimum 50 SPF) at least a week before the procedure to reduce the risk of complications.

Discontinue Retinoids: If you use topical retinoids, your healthcare provider may advise you to discontinue use for a certain period before the procedure.

after your Fractora treatment

Swelling and Redness: Mild swelling and redness are common after RF microneedling. It is recommended to use cold packs to reduce these symptoms.

Sun Protection: Minimize sun exposure and use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect the treated areas for at least one week. This helps prevent hyperpigmentation and supports proper healing.

Avoid Strenuous Activities: Limit strenuous physical activities for minimum 3 days after the procedure to minimize side effects.

Moisturize: Keep the treated area well-moisturized to support the healing process.

Avoid Harsh Skincare Products: Refrain from using harsh skincare products or exfoliants for at least one week.

It's important to note that the specific results and benefits of the treatment may vary depending on the individual's skin condition, treatment plan, and other factors. It's essential to consult with our specialists to determine if the treatment is suitable for your specific needs and expectations.
