Our Fractora treatment remolds your skin’s collagen levels and elasticity to help restore your skin to its youthful appearance. This treatment actively tightens the skin, smooths and reduces the appearance of wrinkles while minimizing pigmentation and uneven skin textures. Fractora utilizes radio frequency that emits heat along with a controlled needle headpiece to penetrate deep into the dermis and induce collagen production.


What Is Fractora?

Fractora is a medical aesthetic treatment used for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. It is a fractional skin resurfacing procedure that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling. The treatment is designed to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and promote collagen production.

How does Fractora work?

During a Fractora session, a handheld device is used to deliver RF energy through an array of small needles that create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, leading to collagen remodeling and tissue regeneration. The combination of RF energy and microneedling allows for deeper penetration into the skin layers, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

Is Fractora Safe?

Fractora is considered a safe and effective skin treatment when performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some potential risks and side effects that you should be aware of before undergoing the treatment.

The safety of Fractora largely depends on the skill and expertise of the practitioner performing the procedure. When administered by a licensed and trained professional, the risks are minimized. 

Some potential side effects and risks associated with Fractora may include:

  • Redness and Swelling: Mild redness and swelling are common after the treatment, but these side effects usually subside within a few days. We recommended using our post procedure kit to help with these symptoms. 
  • Discomfort: Fractora involves the use of needles and radiofrequency energy, which may cause some discomfort during the procedure. At Urban Beauty Bar we use topical anesthetic cream to help minimize any discomfort so that your treatment is enjoyable.
  • Skin Sensitivity: Your skin may be more sensitive after the treatment, and you will need to avoid sun exposure as directed by your esthetician. Our post procedure kit will be prescribed for maximum recovery with little to no downtime.

What does Fractora treat?

Fractora is commonly used to address various skin concerns. The treatment can be used on different areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands.

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Fractora can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on the face, neck, and décolletage. The treatment stimulates collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity and smooth out wrinkles.
  • Skin Texture and Tone: It can help improve overall skin texture and tone, making the skin look smoother and more even. Fractora can be effective in treating rough or uneven skin caused by factors such as sun damage or acne scarring.
  • Acne and Acne Scars: The treatment can target active acne and also help improve the appearance of acne scars by promoting collagen remodeling and skin rejuvenation.
  • Enlarged Pores: Fractora can help reduce the size of enlarged pores, giving the skin a more refined and polished appearance.
  • Skin Laxity: It can tighten and firm loose or sagging skin, especially in areas like the lower face and jawline, providing a mild lifting effect.
  • Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation: Fractora can help fade sunspots, age spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone.
  • Scars: Whether caused by acne, surgery, or injury, Fractora can help improve the appearance of scars and promote smoother skin texture.
  • Stretch Marks: Fractora can be used to address stretch marks, particularly those with a reddish or pinkish hue, by stimulating collagen production and reducing their visibility.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of Fractora treatments you will require can vary depending on several factors, including the specific skin concerns and goals you want to address. The severity of those concerns, your skin type, and your individual response to the treatment. Typically, a series of three Fractora sessions is recommended to achieve optimal results.

In many cases, patients see noticeable improvements after a single Fractora treatment, such as improved skin texture and a reduction in fine lines. However, for more significant and long-lasting results, multiple sessions are often recommended. A typical treatment plan may involve anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart.

One of our Medical estheticians will assess your skin and discuss your  goals during an initial consultation. Based on this assessment, they will recommend the appropriate number of Fractora sessions needed to achieve the desired outcomes. Keep in mind that each person’s skin is unique, so the treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs.

It’s important to have realistic expectations about the results and understand that improvements may be gradual over time as the skin undergoes the healing and rejuvenation process. Additionally, to maintain the benefits of the treatment, some individuals may choose to have periodic maintenance sessions after completing their initial treatment plan.
