"Fractora" - Fractional Radio Frequency Skin Resurfacing

Dr. Hovsepian is always working with new and continuously emerging technologies. Fractora has made wrinkle treatment possible and highly effective. Fractora is one of the most significant advancements in wrinkle treatment. It comes in the form of a revolutionary new hand piece used with the BodyTite Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) device, and provides dramatic improvements for the skin, enhancing its tone and texture. Fractora can be used on a variety of areas including eyelids, hands, and for facial tightening and sagging skin around the neck.

How does Fractora work?
The skin is gently heated by placing a small brush like device against the skin. Aided by the individual adjustment of radiofrequency, the energy is passed through a series of tiny bipolar pins resulting in localized heating and ablation of the skin. Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while the untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the tissue. Not only are lines and wrinkles filled out, but the treatment also minimizes any possible side effects. Fractora is performed in the office and the actual procedure takes about 30 minutes. Prior to the procedure a local anesthetic “numbing” cream will be applied to the skin; these measurements are taken to make your procedure as comfortable as possible.

How is Fractora effective in treating wrinkles and loose skin?
Fractora is effective in treating wrinkles and loose skin, and can be used on many areas such as eyes, lips, chin, neck, jowls, upper and lower lip, and back of hands. The device offers dramatic improvement in skin and wrinkles by restructuring deeper tissue.
A variety of skin conditions can be treated with this device, including:

• Fine lines
• Smoker’s lips
• Crow’s feet
• Acne scars

Fractora delivers fractional radiofrequency energy on targeted areas of the skin, through an array of pin electrodes with an ablation zone that can vary from 100 microns up to 1mm. This heats up the skin, gently resulting in localized heating and ablation of the skin. There are also different tip configurations that can be chosen for faster treatment. You can expect noticeable results with:

• Skin tightening
• Wrinkle reduction
• Improved skin texture and tone for softer, younger-looking skin

What are the benefits of Fractora skin resurfacing treatment?
• Promotes skin resurfacing
• Promotes faster healing
• Minimal discomfort
• Results can be seen immediately, with typical results visible two weeks after treatment
• Minimal side effects
