Fractora treatment is one of the most exciting new cosmetic procedures out there. It’s fast, easy, and very effective. If you want to know what the recovery process is like (it’s really very easy!), read this quick blog to learn more.
What is Fractora?
To understand how Fractora works, it’s essential to understand how collagen works. Collagen is a type of protein that composes up nearly every part of your body. In particular, collagen gives your skin its shape, with collagen located deep below the dermis helping provide firmness and shape to your skin.
As you age, collagen can start to lose its structure somewhat as production slows. This leads to less support for your skin and the emergence of things like wrinkles. However, Fractora treatments can help revitalize collagen.
How this works is that pins are placed into the skin. These pins help direct heat through radiofrequency to the lower sub-dermal tissues, where collagen is found. Heat causes collagen to restructure itself into a more elastic and healthy form. By improving the base of collagen under the skin, you can create skin with reduced wrinkles and a more youthful-looking appearance overall.
What is Fractora Used For?
Anywhere you have wrinkles! Fractora is appropriate for use anywhere on your body that you would like to get younger-looking skin. Most popular are naturally the face and neck areas. This is because these are the places that tend to be noticed first and places where wrinkles are common. Using this treatment in these areas tends to give the most striking results. Most patients tend to see improvements very quickly, with the effects of Fractora continuing to steadily improve up to three months after the procedure.
Tips for You Fractora Downtime and Recovery
Fractora is much less invasive than, say, a facelift when it comes to cosmetic procedures. This also means that there is a less severe recovery time than many other cosmetic procedures.
It is perfectly normal for skin to be tender or swollen after receiving Fractora treatment. It’s also normal for the skin to have a red coloration during the Fractora downtime. These effects usually last for roughly a couple of weeks.
The best advice we can give for the downtime period is this – listen to what your cosmetic surgeon tells you! Every Fractora treatment may be somewhat different, depending on what areas the treatment targets.
Usually, your cosmetic practitioner will give you products like creams to put on the areas where you got Fractora and advice on how to use them.
It’s also essential to avoid picking at or trying to peel your skin. Simply apply the products that your cosmetic surgeon provided you and wait for the natural healing process. If you clean your face during this period, be gentle – only lightly soak your face, and be careful with drying. Try to avoid hot showers, baths, or saunas.
It’s also a good idea to avoid direct sunlight for a few weeks after your procedure. If you need to be outside for long periods of time, bring sunscreen.
