What is Fractora?
Fractora is a resurfacing treatment that rejuvenates your skin to restore your youthful appearance. This treatment can target many areas on your skin that currently show discoloration, acne scarring, and fine lines and wrinkles. It is most commonly used on the forehead, cheeks, neck, mouth, and even eyelids.
How does it work?
Fractora directs energy precisely at specific areas of the skin. This process provides enhanced results over weaker fractional CO2 laser treatments, with less redness and downtime. Depending on your treatment needs, you can expect between 1-6 sessions to achieve your desired results. Combining Fractora with FaceTite skin tightening can achieved exceptional rejuvenation results.
