Fractora™ is another fractional RF treatment that reduces wrinkles, addresses acne scarring, and tightens the skin. The fractional radiofrequency and minimally invasive matrix of microneedles resurface and restore the skin, providing exceptional results with minimal downtime.
After treatment, you may experience swelling, mild bruising, and redness, but these side effects should dissipate in approximately one week.

Laser Genesis™ is another treatment option for active acne. This state-of-the-art device uses light energy to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, diminish the signs of aging (such as facial redness and brown spots), and dry up acne-causing bacteria without chemicals.
You may feel a gentle warming of the skin during the treatment. You may notice a slight redness immediately following your procedure, which typically resolves within a few hours.
Acne breakouts can cause scarring, which may be difficult to correct. The PicoSure® laser device uses focused light energy to help smooth and revitalize the skin. The laser breaks apart cells in the scar tissue, allowing the body to reabsorb them. PicoSure® also heats the underlying layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and encouraging cell renewal.
The most important thing to do during recovery is to keep the skin moisturized and protected from UV rays. Broad-spectrum sunscreen is recommended for daily use. Our office carries SkinMedica® sunscreens.
Makeup can be applied several days after microneedling, once the skin has healed. Redness may persist for several days. You will be provided a post-procedural instruction sheet that is specific to your treatment plan. Follow these guidelines closely to optimize and prolong the quality of your results.
Visible results can be seen immediately or may take several weeks or months to appear, depending on the severity and location of your skin concerns. Depending on your goals and the condition for which these FDA-approved technologies are used, multiple treatments may be necessary. For example, more sessions may be required to resolve acne scarring. Your individualized treatment plan will be discussed during your consultation.
