Fractura emits radio frequencies that penetrate the skin, heating up the sub dermal layer and shrinking oil glands. This limits the skin’s ability to produce oil, which encourages bacteria buildup and leads to the growth of pimples.

What is Fractura?
Fractura is a rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles and tightens skin, providing patients with a more youthful look.
Who would benefit from Fractura treatment?
Fractura is ideal for patients in good medical standing who desire a natural looking, rejuvenated appearance. In addition to wrinkles, Fractura is highly effective at treating:
- Lines on the neck
- Drooping skin around the jawline
- Acne scars
- Vascular Lesions
- Skin irregularities
How does Fractura treatment work?
The Fractura device emits concentrated radio frequencies that penetrate the skin through heated pins. These pins produce small punctures, sending a controlled heat into the sub dermal tissue layer. The reaction that follows helps promote the growth of collagen and tightens/resurfaces the skin.
How do I prepare for Fractura treatment?
Be sure to avoid sun and harsh wind exposure for at least 1 month before your procedure. In addition, discontinue the use of anti inflammatory drugs or supplements, as these can increase the risk of bleeding during Fractura. It’s also crucial to stay hydrated leading up to treatment, as hydrated skin heals more quickly and encourages faster treatment results.
How long does treatment take?
Patients will be administered a numbing cream, which takes approximately 10-15 minutes to take effect. The procedure itself lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the designated area. Note that most specialists recommend blocking off an hour to accommodate a Fractura procedure.
What happens during a Fractura treatment?
Your specialist will begin by marking the areas on your face designated treatment. They will then administer a numbing agent to prevent any discomfort. Once the device is activated, it will be placed on your skin for at least 20-30 minutes. Finally, you’ll be given antibacterial ointments and moisturizing lotion to clean your face and promote healing.
What precautions should I take after Fractura?
Your specialist will supply you with ointment, which you must apply to the treated area 2-3 times a day for 3 days following the procedure. This will ensure the micro-punctures heal properly and remain free of complications.
When can I expect to see results? How long do they last?
Most patients see results within 2-3 days of treatment. Since Fractura promotes significant collagen regrowth, improvements can be seen for up to 6 months after the procedure.
Note that your results are generally permanent but may require additional attention down the road as your skin succumbs to the natural effects of aging.Call Us
