FraxRF

Rejuvenate & Restore Skin with a Versatile Fractional Skin TreatmentFractora is the most advanced fractional bipolar radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing.

Fractora delivers bipolar 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 the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated.

Physicians can offer a versatile fractional treatment that can provide non-ablative to minimally ablative results up to 1mm in depth. Fractora can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, cheeks, mouth and neck. RF energy heats the skin in a controlled schema to remodel deep collagen and improve the appearance of the skin.

Benefits:

Fractora delivers improvements in the broadest range of symptoms of aging skin including fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness. Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies. Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue. Versatility of parameters allows the user to vary the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.

Clinical study:

Studies show that skin ablation can reach a depth of 1mm with a coagulation zone of up to 100 microns around the crater. During the treatment, a controlled ablation zone is surrounded by coagulated tissue. Active phagocytosis indicates healing at five days post treatment and new restructured collagen is observed in the deep dermis.
