Rejuvenating facial treatment
We can reduce the signs of aging and give your skin a younger look. Fractora is a treatment device which combines radio frequency energy with microneedling. It can be used to treat sun damage, uneven pigmentation, superficial wrinkles, enlarged pores, and thin or loose skin.
Radio frequency energy in combination with microneedling causes microscopic lesions in the skin and warms up the deeper structures. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing process. During this process, age-related changes the elastin and collagen layers are reversed and the skin becomes thicker. Pigmentation problems and redness caused by superficial blood vessels are also reduced. The pores shrink and over the next few months, the skin becomes tighter.
Results start to show in around 2-3 weeks and the process goes on for up to 6 months.
Before the procedure, the skin area that is to be treated is anaesthetised with a cream for around 45 minutes and them cleaned. During one treatment session, the skin area is treated 1-3 times. After the treatment, moisturising cream is applied to the skin. The patient should continue using the moisturising cream as long as redness is visible on the skin and can then move on to lighter creams. Redness and moderate swelling appears on the skin for the next 1-3 hours, depending on the effect of the treatment. The redness and swelling peak the day after the procedure, so you may want to stay at home that day. We recommend that you do not plan anything for the days immediately following the procedure, as you will have to wait at least two days before you can use make-up.
After lighter treatments, the redness will go down within 2-3 days. A more intense treatment can cause a redness which lasts for 5-7 days, and you might experience a slight burning sensation during the first day. The microneedles may cause tiny crusts, but these will disappear within 3-7 days. Small red scratches can be visible for up to 3 weeks. After the treatment, you should avoid sunlight for 2-4 weeks, depending on the effect of the treatment. You can start using foundation creams after 2-3 days, depending on the effect of the treatment.
