Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

Why does my skin appear dull and loose?

Your skin is the single largest organ in your body and serves many important roles. Your facial skin is constantly exposed to the elements and environmental contaminants, and that takes a toll over time.

Just below your skin lies a layer of collagen, which acts as a sort of cushion that plumps your skin. Collagen is what gives you that youthful, baby-faced appearance, but your natural levels decline as you age. Loss of collagen leaves your skin looser, allowing it to gather into fine lines and wrinkles.

The combination of age, sun exposure, and environment can change the way your facial skin looks and feels, making you appear older than your years. That’s where Fractora comes in.

What is Fractora?

Fractora is a next-generation skin treatment that uses radio-frequency energy to create impressive aesthetic results. It’s a great option for women who want noticeable improvements in their skin’s tone and texture, but don’t want to undergo an invasive plastic surgery procedure.

Fractora can improve the following skin issues:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven texture
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Visible blood vessels (spider veins)
  • Areas of redness

Fractora is also great for treating cystic acne, and can even improve the appearance of acne scarring. 

How does Fractora work?

During treatments, the Fractora system’s handheld device with sterile pins penetrates into the deeper layers of your skin. Once in place, those pins use radio-frequency energy to create carefully controlled heat.

That heat creates thousands of micro-injuries in your sub-dermal tissue. Your body responds with its natural healing powers, creating a layer of new collagen. That plumps your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance. 

Those tiny injuries also damage the walls of visible blood vessels, break up concentrations of pigment, and help smooth scar tissue. The ability to deliver results in so many different skin conditions is why Fractora is quickly becoming the aesthetic platform of choice across the nation.

How many Fractora treatment sessions will I need?

No two women share the exact same set of needs, which is why Dr. Lingenfelter takes the time to provide a thorough skin examination and consultation. You’ll see results after your first treatment, and at that point, you and Dr. Lingenfelter will determine if additional sessions are needed to optimize your results.
