The Fractora procedure using the BodyTite device is a hardware-based technique for correcting age-related changes and skin imperfections using needle RF lifting.
The Fractora procedure is recommended for tightening the skin, correcting age-related changes (ptosis, saggy and uneven skin, wrinkles), removing postacne scars, stretch marks on the body. The effect is comparable to the effect of the fractional CO-2 laser, but without long recovery period.
The essence of the procedure
The procedure combines two types of exposure - fractional (point) ablation through micro-punctures with the help of the needle nozzled device and simultaneous thermal stimulation of the skin with radio-frequency energy (RF lifting).
A needle nozzle is used for the procedure, providing phased heating of tissues with radio frequency energy within the procedure. The penetration depth and power of the RF pulses are selected individually by the doctor based on the problem (deep or more superficial depending on the nozzle selection).
The procedure triggers the regeneration and restructuring of the dermal layer, visibly tightens the skin. Under the action of thermal stimulation, reduction in old collagen fibers and stimulation of the new collagen and elastin production occurs. Changes are visible immediately after the procedure: the skin looks more youthful, elastic, even and toned. Due to the stimulation of the new collagen synthesis, an additional delayed effect of rejuvenation is observed.
To reduce discomfort and pain, Fractora procedure is performed under sedation.
Indications for Fractora RF-lifting
The procedure successfully solves such problems as:
- saggy skin;
- small and deep wrinkles;
- loss of defined face oval;
- dystrophy and thinning of the skin;
- postacne changes;
- vascular defects, pigmentation;
- stretch marks and striae;
- scars and cicatrixes.
Rehabilitation after the procedure
During the first day after the procedure it is not recommended to apply anything on the skin. Within 2-3 days after the procedure, a slight swelling and redness remains. The netting from skin micro-punctures disappears in 5-7 days.
Active sunlight should be avoided within two weeks after the procedure; apply cream with SPF of at least 30 before going out. It is not recommended to visit bathhouse, sauna and pool.
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- Autoimmune diseases;
- Chronic diseases in the acute stage;
- Cardiovascular diseases;
- Infectious diseases;
- Bleeding disorders;
- Thyroid disease.
Patients under 18 and those with implanted pacemakers or defibrillators are also not allowed to the procedure.
The interval between injections of botulinum toxin or fillers based on hyaluronic acid and the Fractora procedure should be at least two weeks.
The effect of the procedure
- Visual rejuvenation for 5-7 years due to tightening and lifting of the skin;
- Face oval gets a clear outline;
- Improved quality and microrelief of the skin;
- Age spots become less noticeable or even disappear;
- The skin tone is getting more even;
- Acne, scars and cicatrixes disappear or become less visible;
- The number of wrinkles gets reduced, their depth and intensity decreases;
- Superficial vascular formations are eliminated.
The effect is visible after the first procedure and increases within 2-3 months, the maximum result from the Fractora procedure is achieved at the 5th-6th months. If necessary, the procedure can be repeated.
