Fractora - Fractional RF for rejuvenation & Fractora Firm

Rejuvenate & Restore Skin with a Versatile Fractional Skin Treatment

Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through mild sublative and ablative skin resurfacing.

Fractora delivers RF energy to the skin through an array of probes producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal quickly. Return to work within 24 hrs - 48 hrs*

Benefits:
  • Fractora delivers improvements in the broadest range of symptoms of aging skin including fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness.
  • Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
  • Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.
  • Versatility of parameters allows the user to vary the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.

Ageing, sun damage and our skin

 

While chronological ageing causes degenerative changes to all parts of our bodies, the effect of time and sun exposure on the skin is the most visible of all. Much of what is perceived as skin ageing is in fact damage acquired through chronic sun exposure.
Intrinsic ageing and extrinsic ageing of the skin are independent processes. Intrinsic ageing is determined by our genetic clock and is affected by the degenerative effects of free radicals and the body’s inability to perfectly repair their damage. Over time our cells, tissues and vital organs ‘rust’ or deteriorate. These internal changes are not as visible as the signs of ageing on the external organ – our skin.

Does your skin exhibit any signs of photoageing?

Skin responses to UV radiation can be divided into acute and chronic effects:
Fast onset, short duration & gradual onset, long duration: a
cute effects i.e. sunburn & tanning and chronic effects i.e. photo ageing and skin cancer

Photoageing:

  • Collagen/Elastin breakdown - wrinkles, fine lines, laxity
  • Telangiectasia  - capillaries or dilated blood vessels
  • Hyperpigmentation - brown spots and patches

Sun damage contributes to many chronic skin conditions such as Rosacea, Melasma, Lentigos - sun spots, pre-cancerous lesions- solar keratoses just to mention a few.

 How can I rejuvenate my skin which shows signs of photoageing?

Our Dermal clinicians can assess your particular concerns and advise which treatments will be most appropriate to achieve optimal results.

There are various non-surgical modalities that may be prescribed depending on the type of sun damage you have : Photorejuvenation by medical grade IPL, Laser rejuvenation, Laser toning, ablative Fractionated laser resurfacing , and Skin needling  also known as collagen induction therapy.  

Once we have achieved rejuvenation it is important to maintain the skin by medical skin treatments. These may include medical grade Microdermabrasion, Iontophoresis/ Sonophoresis to increase penetration of essential vitamins and anti oxidants , enzyme therapy to oxygenate and firm the skin, chemical peels to infuse high strength Retinol AGP, home care using cosmeceuticals containing high strengths of Vitamins A  & C and anti oxidants,  anti pigmentation products containing lightening agents and tyrosinase inhibitors to reduce resurgence of pigmentation.

Many treatment modalities are also used to maintain young skin and to combat the appearance of the visible signs of sun damage and ageing. The earlier the better!

Cosmetic surgery rejuvenates the contours of the face, yet it does not change the skin quality.  In fact, patients can appear neater rather than more youthful due to poor skin quality.  Youthfulness is determined by the appearance of the skin, so it is essential to treat the skin pre and post operatively.

How does Photoageing occur?

You may walk away from the beach with a suntan, but that's not all you're getting.  Excessive sun exposure is responsible for much of the skin damage associated with aging. This damage accumulates slowly over time and starts at an early age.

Extrinsic ageing affects our skin otherwise known as photoageing. Skin exposed to sunlight is the most vulnerable to damage. If we examine areas of the skin which have been least exposed to sunlight, we observe distinct differences.  In contrast to the protected skin of the abdomen or buttocks, the exposed areas of the face, neck, hands and forearms eventually show effects of chronic UVR Exposure:

  • Thickened /nodular
  • Yellow/ sallow
  • Coarse, wrinkling
  • Rough texture
  • Telangiectasia
  • Lentigines (freckling)
  • Mottled pigmentation - Dyschromias
  •  Elastotic, lax skin
  • Actinic comedones
  • Pronounced skin fragility
  • Marked dryness and scaliness
  • Benign and malignant skin cancers

UV A (320 to 400nm)

  • Major contributor to skin damage.
  • Penetrates into the dermis.
  • Constant levels throughout the day and all year round.
  • It is not filtered by glass.

UV B (290- 320nm)

  • Affects the epidermis and is responsible for sunburn.
  • Extreme levels between 11am-3pm.
  • Does not penetrate glass.

UV Damage to cells and systems of the skin

  • Increases Free radical load
  • Thickening of the stratum corneum (dead outer layer of skin)
  • Melanin disruption (pigmentation)
  • Damage to proteins, such as collagen forming fine lines, wrinkles and laxity
  • Damage to Vitamin C
  • Damage to Vitamin A and cell receptors
  • Damage to DNA

How should I protect my skin?

Topical anti oxidants in appropriate concentrations and form including sun avoidance, sunscreen and clothing is the best protection from photoageing.  Oral anti oxidants have not been shown to prevent photo ageing of the skin.  As sensitive vitamins are depleted by sun exposure, topical application to replenish the skin is important to combat damage.
