Fractional laser resurfacing vaporizes tissue in a precisely controlled manner to promote new collagen formation and skin rejuvenation. Fractora™ is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency (RF) treatment that delivers RF energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by Fractora™ in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. Fractora™ provides anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture through ablation and skin resurfacing. Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.
Fractora™ is most useful for improving scarring, texture, fine or deep wrinkles, sun damage, skin laxity, pigment irregularities and redness. The most common areas of treatment are the face (including the upper and lower eyelids, cheeks, forehead, smile lines, and lines around the mouth) and neck. Fractora™ offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
Of all the methods that can reverse the signs of aging, there is no better treatment than fractional laser skin resurfacing. This latest laser treatment is far more effective than any cream or peel currently available. At Curcio Dermatology, we offer the very latest in fractional laser therapies to rejuvenate your skin and take years off your appearance.
Forma™ skin tightening can be combined with Fractora™ skin resurfacing to create the complete facial treatment in a single session. Combine the best of tunable RF factional ablation with collagen remodeling to address all facial concerns.
The treatment is well tolerated by almost all skin types, and there is minimal discomfort. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will appear red, warm and swollen, which will decrease over the first 48 hours. With camouflage makeup, most people feel comfortable returning to work on the next day.
