FRACTORA™ Fractional Technology
FRACTORA™ Fractional Technology, a medical Fractional radio-frequency treatment, is widely used to cure skin structure problems such as acne scars and scars, rejuvenate skin turgor, decrease undesirable wrinkles, and strengthen skin structures from the inside. Your skin will absolutely look healthier.
FRACTORA™, with a frequency of 1 MHz, is an innovative radiofrequency technology. A bipolar radiofrequency emits and transmits heat energy (40-100 °C) by pins into the dermis in a fractional form, causing three mechanisms simultaneously including ablation, coagulation, and sub-necrotic healing. These mechanisms are the cause of epidermis peeling (with wound). Moreover, the collagen fibers are produced, and its structures are well-rearranged. That’s why flabby skin, wrinkles, scars, and acne scars will reduce apparently.
Each pin has a feedback control to maintain the equal temperatures, so the physician is able to manipulate energy level penetrating to the skin layers. For more comfortable, A FRACTORA™ screen is apparently seen as well.
