  • The lower eyelid
  • Upper eyelid
  • Smile lines
  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth
  • Neck
  • Body areas, such as the back

Dr. Preminger is confident Fractora will be a preferred treatment choice for patients in and around the New York City area.

Fractora Procedure

Fractora by InmodeThe Fractora hand-piece consists of two metal plates and an array of tiny pins between them. When radio-frequency (RF) energy is applied, it passes into the skin as it flows between the pins and the plates. This is a bipolar system; in other words, the energy passes between the pins and plates rather than just being blasted directly into the skin. This is a significant design advantage of the Fractora system.

The diagram below shows how the energy flows between the pins and the plates as the device is pressed onto the skin. The energy goes deeper the farther the plate is from the pin. This allows for a consistent delivery of energy to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin, which thins out as we get older.

The energy stimulates cells known as fibroblasts to go into action, producing collagen and plumping up the skin. These cells continue their regeneration for more than six months, so the effect increases with time.

Fractora in action diagramIt is a safe and minimally-invasive procedure, using the combination of small pins to resurface and restore the skin with almost no patient downtime. RF is color-blind technology, and the benefit is that it can be used on skin of all color, allowing even patients with darker skin tones to receive treatment. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant, youthful appearance.

The effectiveness of this treatment comes from the unique combination of fractional skin resurfacing and deep dermal heating. Depending on your regime, you can expect to have one to six sessions. Fractora can also be combined with additional energy treatments or injectables to achieve a more extensive full face result, called a FracTotal Facial.

"Fractora has quickly become the "go-to" treatment for resolving skin irregularities. It reduces wrinkles and slows the effect of aging, restoring skin to its youthful appearance – all in one session."

- Dr. B. Aviva Preminger

Fractora Costs

Fractora treatments are typically less costly than other laser rejuvenation procedures, ranging in cost from $1500 – $6000 depending on the extent of the procedure performed.  

 

Fractora Results

You should be able to resume your normal activities within one to two days after the procedure. Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied one to two days after the treatment. Patients should anticipate seeing micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to one week depending on treatment parameters. The full results of your first treatment should emerge within two weeks. Improvements will continue up to three months after treatment.

It is recommended that patients moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. In addition, patients should use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day, reducing their future risk of skin cancer and reversing the dramatic effects achieved with Fractora.
