Improve Pigmentation, Wrinkles, and Tighten Skin with Fractora™
Fractora™ is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that can improve the complexion and texture of your skin. It offers the deepest penetration of all fractional laser technology.* Fractora™ utilizes revolutionary radio frequency (RF) technology to target superficial lines and deeper wrinkles that may form over time, due to the natural aging process, sun exposure, or environmental factors. This innovative skin resurfacing procedure can also reduce the appearance of acne scars, red spots, lesions, and pigmentation issues. Fractora™ treatment is designed to firm the face and body and improve skin tone in one procedure. RF energy from the Fractora™ machine stimulates the production of subsurface collagen to tighten skin, while also resurfacing the initial skin layer for a radiant complexion.

How does Fractora™ skin resurfacing work?
The Fractora™ handle is equipped with a series of micro-pins that deliver radio frequency energy to the treatment area. During your skin rejuvenation procedure, the skin is firmly stretched and the Fractora™ handle is applied to the surface of your skin. The micro-pins deliver gentle, controlled pulses of RF energy that penetrate down to the skin’s lower layers and stimulate the growth of new collagen. These micro-pins also resurface the outer layers of your skin to allow for the growth of new skin cells. Dr. Levine will evenly apply the Fractora™ device around the entire treatment site to ensure symmetrical results.*
What areas can be treated with Fractora™?
Fractora™ treatment areas include the forehead, eyelids, cheeks, nasolabial folds, jowls, and neck, as well as numerous areas of the body.
Who is a good candidate for Fractora™ skin rejuvenation?
Fractora™ candidates include patients looking to improve facial furrows, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, lesions, or pigmentation issues. If you would like to improve your complexion and treat fine lines without undergoing surgery, then Fractora™ skin tightening may be an ideal solution. Dr. Levine will meet with you during your consultation for Fractora™ at our New York office to help determine if Fractora™ skin rejuvenation is right for you.
Can Fractora™ treatment be combined with other procedures?
Yes. Fractora™ treatment can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, including BodyTite™, FaceTite™, a facelift, neck lift, browlift, blepharoplasty, and fat transfer. Fractora™ can also complement cosmetic injectables, as well as different skin care techniques. Since Fractora™ can treat the body, different body contouring procedures may also be combined, depending on the specifics of your procedure.
What type of anesthesia will be used?
Fractora™ is usually performed under local anesthesia. If you are combining Fractora™ skin resurfacing with other procedures, then a different type of anesthesia may be utilized, depending on the specifics of your treatment.
What should I expect during my Fractora™ procedure?
Fractora™ skin rejuvenation is performed on an outpatient basis in our NYC offices. First, an anesthetic is administered to prepare the treatment area(s). Dr. Levine will then stretch the skin and apply the Fractora™ handle to the treatment site. This device will be placed around the entirety of the treatment area(s) to ensure symmetrical skin resurfacing results. The length of Fractora™ treatments ultimately varies depending on the specifics of each procedure.*
What should I expect after my Fractora™ procedure?
Slight bruising, swelling, or tenderness may occur after your Fractora™ treatment. However, these side effects are normal and should subside after a few days. Medication can be prescribed to help lessen these symptoms, if necessary. There is minimal downtime associated with Fractora™ and patients can usually resume day-to-day activities immediately after completing Fractora™ skin resurfacing treatment.* Dr. Levine can discuss specific post-care instructions with you during your in-office consultation.
What kind of results can I expect from Fractora™ skin resurfacing?
Improvements to your skin texture can be seen after using Fractora™ and many patients see further enhancements in the months following treatment.* Fractora™ skin resurfacing can reduce acne scars, lesions, red spots, fine lines, and wrinkles for a smoother-looking complexion.
