What Dr Sagoo says about “Fractora Forma”?
According to Dr Sagoo, “Fractora Forma is a non-invasive skin treatment that promotes skin tightening by heating the deep layers of skin. There is no downtime or discomfort. Fractora Forma may stimulate the production of your elastin and collagen to promote beautiful skin tightening and improve the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting remarkable results.”
How does “Fractora Forma” work?
Fractora Forma Firm and Fractora Forma Plus technologies utilize radio-frequency (RF) energy to penetrate the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the deep dermis where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating may cause an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, while at the same time it may increase the metabolism of the collagen-producing cells (called fibroblasts) thereby accelerating the production of new collagen fibres. Radio-frequency may also diminish the size of fat cells, which can produce better contouring of the body.
Fractora Forma Firm and Fractora Forma Plus offer you two configurations of non-invasive treatments for collagen remodelling. The “Firm” treatment is for the face and neck, while the “Plus” treatment treats the body.
What are the benefits of Fractora Forma?
Fractora Forma treatments may help with:
- Ageing skin, fine lines and deep wrinkles.
- Tightening of loose and sagging skin on the body.
- And more…
Fractora Forma (both Firm & Plus treatments) offer advanced fractional radio-frequency anti-ageing treatments.
Many Fractora Forma patients have reported that their skin feels smoother, with improvements in definition and decreased wrinkles. Fractora Forma is an advanced aesthetic solution for all skin colours.
How many treatments will I need?
A typical treatment course consists of 6-8 sessions. Each session takes between 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated. We recommend purchasing a package of 8 sessions for our patients getting Fractora Forma. Optional maintenance treatments are available to clients seeking prolonged, enhanced results.
Am I a candidate for Fractora Forma?
Fractora Forma Firm and Fractora Plus treatments are suitable for all skin types. However, the extent of the patients’ reaction to treatment is client-specific. Candidates who maintain a healthy lifestyle and are near their ideal weight typically show the best results.
What can be treated with Fractora Forma?
Fractora Firm and Fractora Plus treatments may help with:
- Contouring and sculpting of the face, neck and body.
- Tightening loose or sagging skin.
- Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.
Will it hurt?
The Fractora Forma treatments are virtually painless. During treatment, some patients can experience mild heating sensations. Immediately after treatment, some redness and warmth can often be seen and felt on the skin. Both are necessary to the treatment and should disappear within an hour or so following the treatment.
Fractora Forma may stimulate collagen to naturally remodel more tightly with more firmness, by gently heating the skin with radiofrequency. Many describe the warmth of the current flows between the Fractora Forma radiofrequency electrodes as comfortable. The Fractora Forma has a unique built-in temperature feedback system. This ensures that the perfect temperature for maximum treatment effectiveness is reached while nearly eliminating the risk of overheating.
When can I expect results?
Immediate results may be seen in most patients during the first treatment. Noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and face and neck contouring and lifting are commonly seen over a full treatment course. Clients having Fractora have reported improved tone and texture of their arms, tummy, and thighs, and a lift in their buttocks.
Will the treatment interrupt my daily routine?
Fractora Forma treatments are an in-office procedure with no downtime. You can return to work or your daily routine immediately after your session.
