Are you tired of using tons of makeup to cover up brown and red spots? Do you wish there was a way to get rid of the discoloration and improve the look of your skin without invasive surgery?
Dr. Brandon M. Lingenfelter has a cutting-edge solution to improve the look of your skin so you no longer need to wear makeup. His radiofrequency cosmetic tool, Fractora, bridges the gap between laser treatments and surgery to give you flawless skin and banish those brown and red spots.
Fractora: Skin rejuvenation without surgery
Advances in medical technology have helped improve treatment in many areas of medicine, including cosmetic medicine. Fractora is one of the most advanced tools available for skin rejuvenation. It uses fractional radiofrequency energy to not only banish brown and red spots for a more even skin tone, but also to improve:
- Sun damage
- Cystic acne and acne scars
- Visible blood vessels
- Stretch marks
- Fine line and wrinkles.
Fractora works by sending targeted energy through special pins that cause micro lesions without actually piercing your skin. The heat energy stimulates your skin to produce more collagen, which is the protein that gives your skin its bounce and strength, while the micro-lesions kick your body’s natural healing powers into action to create new, flawless skin.
What to expect
Fractora is noninvasive, and Dr. Lingenfelter completes your treatment right at the office. To ease any discomfort during your session, Dr. Lingenfelter uses a numbing agent before he gets started and marks the treatment area.
He then places the radiofrequency tool to your skin and begins the skin rejuvenation process. You may feel a warm sensation, but no pain, as he runs the tool over the treatment area. Session time varies depending on the area being treated and may take up to two hours. Dr. Lingenfelter provides a treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect and how best to plan.
After treatment with Fractora, your skin may be red for a few days, but there’s no downtime following the procedure, and you can go right back to your usual activities. It’s important to moisturize your skin during the first few days after treatment to assist in the healing process. You should see an improvement in your skin within two weeks after treatment, and treatment keeps your tone even and smooth for up to a year.
Though some people only need one treatment, Dr. Lingenfelter may suggest a series of sessions, depending your aesthetic goals.
Maintaining your new, fresh look
Fractora can banish the brown and red spots from your skin, but it’s up to you to keep them from coming back. When it comes to skin health and aging, the sun is your biggest enemy. Dr. Lingenfelter recommends you use sunblock daily on all skin exposed to the sun to keep your skin smooth and flawless. If you plan on being outside for an extended period of time, especially between the peak sun hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., then it’s best to cover up with big sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and clothing.
Maintenance treatments with Fractora are also recommended to help you maintain your look and keep your skin fresh and healthy.
