Skin Resurfacing with Fractora®: What to Expect

If you’ve been looking into ways to turn back the clock and restore your skin’s youthful look, you’ve probably discovered a plethora of options. The aesthetics field has much to offer if you’re looking for a noninvasive or minimally invasive approach to anti-aging. 

We provide the best of those services here at Gago Wellness in Brighton, Michigan. Whether you’re plagued with acne or acne scars, wrinkles, lines, creases, sagging skin, or dark spots, we have treatments that can solve the problem. 

Today, we’re taking a deeper dive into one of our most popular aesthetic treatments — Fractora® skin resurfacing. Here’s what to expect from this multitasking treatment.

Expect a scientifically proven technology

After years of research and technological evolution, two individual therapies have stood the test of time and remain leaders in cosmetic applications — microneedling and radiofrequency (RF). Fractora combines those two powerhouses into one advanced technology — fractional rejuvenation. 

Fractora is a comprehensive skin treatment that addresses several problems at once by using a pin-based device that penetrates your skin at controlled and scalable depths. Unlike some laser treatments that may only tackle surface blemishes, Fractora sends radiofrequency energy down through the micro punctures for a deeper and wider effect. 

Once the RF energy hits its target, it stimulates the production of new collagen, the essential protein that gives your skin its strength and resilience. As collagen increases and restructures the inner layers of your skin, it revitalizes the surface, as well.

Expect a fairly comfortable experience

Although countless tiny pin pricks in your skin sounds painful, it’s actually more comfortable than you might imagine. First, we apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treated skin. If you’re particularly sensitive, you may describe the experience as slightly uncomfortable, and you may feel some muscle twitching, but nothing terribly painful.

Expect versatility

If you’ve been disappointed by other treatments that exclude you because of your skin type or tone, then this is your answer. Fractora is safe and effective for all skin colors, even the darkest tones. It’s also safe for many areas on your face or body.

Expect more than one session

Age, sun damage, and the environment are just a few of the factors that determine the health of your skin. Depending on your unique skin condition, you may need several Fractora treatments to achieve optimal results. Healthy skin with only a few minor issues may only require one treatment, but more severe cases may need up to six.

Expect immediate and ongoing results

You’ll see tighter, clearer skin before you even leave our office. But the best news is that the improvements keep going. As your collagen increases on the inside over the next few weeks and months, you see better and better results on the outside: wrinkles smooth out, scars recede, dark spots fade, and your skin glows with health and vitality.
