Benefits of Fractora Skin Resurfacing

Aging is a natural process that many patients wish to reverse. However, for one reason or another – be it cost or the commitment to recovery, some are unable to undergo surgical methods to regain that youthful look.

Now, with Fractora you can look years younger, and have a healthy glow to your skin with these benefits:

  • Tighter skin
  • Youthful glow
  • Phenomenal results without surgery
  • Improve Scars
  • Smooth, clear complexion
  • Reduction of acne scares and indentations
  • Reduction in sun damage
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction of skin pigmentation and vessels

Quite possibly one of the best benefit of this procedure is that it is completely noninvasive.

What are the risks associated with Fractora?

As with any treatment, following proper post care instructions is essential to minimize any risks associated with your procedure.

Even with laser skin resurfacing, there are potential risks and side effects which include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation
  • Poor or slow healing

However, keep in mind that by undergoing skin resurfacing with Fractora’s CO2 laser, you are receiving a treatment that is much more advanced than traditional skin resurfacing lasers. It is even safe and effective for ethnic skin. The precision offered by Fractora is unparalleled compared to traditional lasers, which means Dr. Preminger can tailor treatment to your unique needs.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you will need to achieve desired results will vary, depending on your skin condition. However, most patients receive benefits of Fractora within one to six sessions. Visible results may be seen immediately, although improvements continue up to three months post-treatment.

Preparing for your Fractora appointment

You may experience mild bruising with Fractora, so be sure to avoid blood thinners, fish oil, aspirin, and NSAIDS for up to two weeks prior to your appointment.

Please note, your prescribing physician must clear you before stopping RX blood thinners. If you are prone to cold sores, let Dr. Preminger know, as prevention medication may be needed if treating areas around the mouth.

The procedure – what to expect

Before beginning treatment, Dr. Preminger will numb the areas to be treated to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure, although you may experience moderate discomfort. Additional pain medication may be provided if necessary.


Dr. Preminger will provide you with specific post-op instructions on how to care for your treatment site. Expect mild swelling for 1-3 days following treatment. Mange swelling by applying cold compresses.

A grid-like pattern, as well as crusting or redness may be visible on your skin for about five days following the procedure – this is normal and should be healed within about a week. Avoid sun exposure and wear an SPF when going outside.
