Fractora is a fractional radiofrequency microneedle device from Inmode. It is a treatment that involves puncturing your face with tiny needles, which then deliver a radiofrequency beneath the skin. This is what makes Fractora different from other types of micro-needling treatments. The use of radiofrequency sends arcs of energy through your skin cells, which heat them up and increase the production of collagen and elastin, while simultaneously shrinking the skin’s oil glands. One of the most common causes of acne is excess oil that acne bacteria feeds on. This causes the inflammation of pimples.
Fractora hinders the skin’s ability to produce the trouble-making serum by basically shutting down or, at the very least, shrinking those oil glands. Acne was not intended to be the primary target for Fractora. It was initially not even recognized as a possible treatment option since the main application for Fractora was designed for tightening the skin and correcting rough texture by increasing collagen production. Your Fractora expert at Skinlastiq in Burlingame will explain how the procedure can help you with your acne scarring and even current breakouts.
Areas of Concern:
Modern science and recent advances in the skin care industry have resulted in chemical peels that meet expectations time and time again. During your consultation, your esthetician will determine which chemical peel will achieve your goals and can adjust a chemical peel to cater specifically to your individual skin type. While chemical peels continue to have exceptional anti-aging effects, they have also been known to reduce or eliminate pre-cancerous skin growth.
You should have realistic expectations when it comes to results. Multiple sessions may be necessary, though Fractora results continue to develop over the coming months as new collagen is produced. With each session, you will notice further resurfacing of the skin and a reduction of wrinkles. You will also notice an improvement in skin laxity, textural irregularities, and scarring. Remember, with Fractora, we are altering your skin and your collagen, so results will not just appear overnight.
