Fractora

Fractora by Inmode

Fractora takes the vampire facial to a different level. This is our signature face procedure. It involves microneedling with radiofrequency treatment to amplify the results of the vampire facial. When we add PRP to the Fractora, the results are significantly improved!

What Is Fractora “The Vampire Facial” and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
The Fractora skin treatment uses radiofrequency, a rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that treats loose skin, improves definition, and reduces the appearance of scars, wrinkles and discolored skin tones.

How Does Fractora Work?

A handheld device with small pins creates tiny abrasions in the skin, sending heat below the surface to promote collagen production.
As we age, collagen and elastin become depleted in our skin causing lines, wrinkles and thin skin.
PRP is designed to reverse this: improve the texture and tone of the skin, helping it become progressively thicker, tighter and more supple.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Fractora?

It’s most commonly used on the face and neck, but body treatments can also include arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF RF ( Radio Frequency) ENERGY?

RF (Radio Frequency) energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. Fractora treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more beautiful and youthful look.

How Soon Can I See Results from Fractora Treatment or Fractora with PRP?

The most noticeable results appear after two weeks. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.

How Many Treatments Do I need?

For best results a minimum of 3 sessions.

WHEN CAN I PUT MAKE-UP ON AFTER TREATMENT?

This is the time for RR (rest and recuperation) we advise for our patients to stay away from make up for 2 to 3 days. That way their skin can fully heal and the collagen regenerates the proper way.

Post Procedure of Fractora with PRP
Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.

WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?

Patients should moisturize the treated area 6 or more times a day and avoid direct sun exposure. It is recommended that the patient uses a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition, sunscreen also reduces wrinkles and slow the aging process.

Forma

Forma by Inmode

The Forma is our body contouring procedure. It can be used in multiple places on the body and it is radiofrequency. It is used to tighten loose skin and improve texture and irregularities. It can be used on the face, neck, abdomen, and love handles to name a few.

WHAT IS FORMA?

Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting improvement.

HOW DOES FORMA WORK?

Forma was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses radio-frequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.

IS FORMA FOR ME?

Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in skin tone and texture irregularities. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined, as well as reductions in wrinkles.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

Forma can be used on both the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crows feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, popular treatments consist of the arms (bat wings), abdomen and other areas that may need contraction.

WILL IT HURT?

Forma is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post-procedure, which subsides within a few hours.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a medical pre-evaluation.

CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

Yes, Forma can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables and/or filler. Please speak to your aesthetic provider when considering combining Forma with other treatments.

Lumecca

WHAT IS LUMECCA?

Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:

  • Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
  • Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
  • Rosacea (redness)
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
