Many people in Hamilton are seeking skin resurfacing with Fractora because they want to enhance their appearance or look younger. Cosmetic dermatologists are highly skilled in assisting patients with fighting the signs of aging such as reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, or age spots. Patients may want to address acne scarring, unwanted hair, or uneven skin tone.
Advancements in technology and the growing popularity of cosmetic dermatology have resulted in services that are more cost effective and less invasive than plastic surgery and provide more natural looking results. Patients of all ethnicity and genders are choosing cosmetic dermatology treatments such as Fractora.
Fractora utilizes fractional radiofrequency to improve the tone and texture of the skin. Fine needles and electrical energy are introduced and produce a controlled injury to the skin. Downtime can last anywhere from 3-14 days depending on the individuals healing process.
How it works:
On the Fractora device there is a series of tiny pins that deliver heat and produce small microscopic lesions on the skin. The heat delivered to the tissue beneath the skin promotes rebuilding of the collagen network. The tiny micro holes heal faster than if all skin in the area is ablated because most of the repair occurs underneath the surface of the skin.
Following a treatment, patients will notice some swelling and redness. Some may also experience bruising. Post-care instructions will be given to patients, as it’s important to keep the area moist during the healing process. Side effects will lessen over time but may last for up to a week. Makeup can be used to cover this up after 5-6 days.
