Fractora Forma Skin Tightening
Fractora Forma® is a unique, non-invasive thermal skin rejuvenation treatment that heats the sub dermal layers to promote collagen and skin tightening without downtime or discomfort. Fractora Forma®, unlike other skin tightening procedures is designed with built-in safeguards that allows precise thermal temperatures for optimal skin contraction without the risks of overheating. The Fractora Forma treatment is intended for treatment of the face, neck, chest, forehead, under eyes, and eyelids – the Fractora Plus treatment in used on larger body areas such as upper arms (bat wings), lower abdomen, front and back of legs, knees, and buttocks. The non-invasive Fractora Forma skin-tightening treatments last for approximately 30 minutes per service area, with no discomfort or downtime following the procedure. The area will be red and warm for a couple of hours after treatment. The technology behind the Fractora Forma is radiofrequency (RF) energy driven into the skin to create a mild firming and skin toning effect. It was featured on the Dr. Oz show, The Doctors, and many other daytime television shows.
The use of RF to improve skin health is not new. It has captured the public’s attention due to the widespread concern of aging facial tissues as one ages and the hope that it will one day avoid the need for a ‘facelift’ or neck lift. It is better to think of Fractora Forma as a skin toning and firming method not a sagging tissue lifting method. It is not for someone who has more moderate to advanced facial aging with really evident jowls and a neck wattle.
How does Fractora Forma work?
All skin tightening technologies work by the same method, which is the application of heat to a degree that tightens the deeper structure of the skin and perhaps in some cases the fascia beneath the skin. The challenge is to heat the deeper skin enough to produce tightening, but to stay below the pain threshold, which is just a little bit warmer. Fractora Forma requires multiple ongoing treatments, usually 6-8 treatments spaced a week or so apart, to get the optimal skin toning effect. For optimal results, this treatment can be repeated on a far more regular basis (even indefinitely).
What areas other than the face can benefit from Fractora Forma treatments?
Areas that respond well to Fractora Forma include the upper chest, the area above the knees, the arms, the upper abdomen, and the back. We are seeing very impressive results when the technology is applied to the jowls, the cheek and brow areas. Our patients experience a nice tightening and lifting of these areas. We are enthusiastic about Fractora Forma at RMI Medspa because the results are consistent, and the treatment process is comfortable.
