Fractora Skin Resurfacing from Dr. Tansavatdi

Fractora skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that improves skin texture, reduces wrinkles, and creates a more youthful appearance. Fractora uses safe radiofrequency energy to revitalize the body’s collagen and rejuvenate skin around the forehead, eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth, neck, chest, arms, knees, and elbows. If you’re interested in improving these areas, Westlake Village surgeon Dr. Tansavatdi can help.

How does Fractora skin resurfacing work?

Fractora is administered using a handheld device that contains a group of microscopic pins. This device creates tiny punctures in your skin, then uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin and stimulate your body’s formation of collagen. As a result, the skin becomes tighter and less wrinkled. In addition, the device promotes healing and reduces redness, scarring, and discoloration of the face and neck.

How is Fractora performed?

Fractora is performed using a specially designed handpiece that contains a group of microscopic pins. Dr. Tansavatdi will decide on the optimal depth of the pins, the level of radiofrequency energy needed, the areas to be treated, and the number of treatment sessions to achieve your desired result. Treatments take between 30 and 45 minutes. Local anesthetic will be administered to keep you comfortable. Topical numbing cream will also be applied before treatment to minimize any discomfort.

Fractora recovery and results

You may experience redness or swelling for the first few days after your Fractora treatment, as well as tiny scabs in the treated area. You will need to keep the area well moisturized, and you will need to wear sunscreen. Makeup can be worn three days following your treatment. Full results from the treatment will be apparent within three months. Every patient is different, and you may need between 1 and 6 Fractora treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals.

How long does Fractora last?

This answer depends on the quality of your skin and the extent of the treatment needed. In general, the benefits of Fractora are permanent. However, Fractora does not stop the aging process, and you will continue to lose collagen as you age. Because of this, additional treatments may be needed once per year to maintain your results and to stimulate new collagen growth.

Who is a good candidate for Fractora?

If you’re in the Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks area and interested in improving wrinkles, scars, loose skin, redness, and skin irregularities on your face, neck, and anywhere else, you may be an ideal candidate for Fractora skin resurfacing. Patients must be in good health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. 

Fractora doesn’t treat deeper tissues, so Dr. Tansavatdi will advise you on which treatments may better meet your aesthetic goals. Fractora doesn’t cause excessive hyperpigmentation reactions in darker skin types; as a result, it’s an ideal treatment for wrinkles, loose skin, and acne scarring in Asian, Hispanic, Indian, and African-American skin types.

In addition, since the treatment delivers energy through needles that penetrate the skin’s surface and the overlying skin is minimally damaged, the treatment can be used safely to treat loose skin in other areas of the body like the chest, arms, thighs, knees, and elbows. Scheduling a consultation is important to determine if Fractora is right for your needs.
