Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty utilizes a special technique that produces gorgeous outcomes for our patients using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for its skin tightening effects. This specific sort of energy therapy utilizes heat to encourage the creation of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. Fractora is used in conjunction with microneedling to maximize the impact on your skin. At Setty Plastics & Aesthetics, we frequently incorporate this new process into our Dallas and McKinney, TX skin remedies to generate healthier skin, a much smoother feel, and a luminous complexion.
"I went in for my first Fractora treatment today. I was nervous about being poked with needles! But I knew I was in good hands with Setty Plastics and Aesthetics, and with Laura. I chose to do the Fractora not only for skin texture, minor scarring, and fine lines, but because I have suffered with cystic acne for years. I woke up today looking like expected. Tiny grid marks all over my face. They are like little markers showing that laura did a wonderful job... not a spot got missed! She was very clear about what to expect, so seeing the marks shows me that it's doing exactly what it's supposed to. Let the healing begin! I have ZERO discomfort, even to touch. I'm sure I could cover most of it with good makeup, but today is Sunday- laundry- bare faced day, so it gets another day to rest and heal. So far so good. More to come!"- Anonymous / RealSelf / Oct 21, 2018
Fractora™ Ideal Candidates
If you're 40 years old or older and are beginning to find age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin flaws (which include age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling could be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling is an excellent option if you want to:
- Firm your skin, creating a more refreshed look
- Boost skin feel, pigment, and tone
- Treat skin imperfections like discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the look of sun damage and age spots
- Repair acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more luminous look
Fractora™ Procedure Technique
Microneedling utilizes an instrument (with little needles at the end) that's rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin begins to grow as the skin begins to heal, leaving the surface looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. Although this process is often done on its own, combining this innovative method with radiofrequency technologies has enabled us to maximize the outcomes for our DFW area patients.
This process is quite easy. The applicator, that emits radiofrequency energy, works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden micro-needles. The power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and returns the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels which offer cumulative and continuing results.
What to Expect with Fractora™
Your microneedling treatments will be performed in the Setty Plastics & Aesthetics MedSpa using a numbing solution to decrease any discomfort. During your procedure, the handpiece will slide across the desired treatment areas, and we repeat the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. You should anticipate small pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-treatment, which will naturally disappear when the inherent skin has healed. Results become noticeable as skin heals in about a month after a Fractora session. Optimal results generally require 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
