The Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic is proud to be one of a handful of clinics in the UK to offer the most versatile radio frequency skin rejuvenation machine on the market.
The most versatile bipolar radiofrequency treatment on the market, Fractora provides dramatic skin, acne scarring, and wrinkle improvement by fractionally ablating the skin and restructuring deeper tissue.
What is FRACTORA and what does it do?
Fractora is the most advanced fractional radiofrequency (RF) treatment, which may provide anti-ageing improvements to skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance, through ablation and skin resurfacing. Ablative treatments do remove some skin, so they have more downtime than other non-ablative technologies like IPL and FotoFacial.
Fractora delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and causing small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue may promote collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and may produce an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated. What this means is that the majority of repair is being done under the skin, maximizing your results, but the damage to the surface is more minimal, allowing you to heal faster and better than with traditional resurfacing machines like Fraxel and CO2 technologies.
Fractora may help with the following:
- New collagen production.
- Skin renewal.
- Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles.
- Discolouration and collagen loss.
- Pre-existing acne.
- Deep acne scarring.
How many treatments are needed?
Depending on your Fractora treatment regime, most patients can expect to have between 1-6 sessions.
The science behind Fractora technology
Fractionated RF energy found in Fractora has been shown in scientific studies to reduce wrinkles. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins that may resurface and restore the skin, and can provide exceptional results for many patients with almost no patient downtime. Fractora is designed to deliver targeted bipolar RF energy to various selectable depths in the skin. Fractora can meet or even exceed the results of fractional CO2 without the associated downtime, prolonged redness, and pigmentation drawbacks. Fractora may achieve full-scale treatment depths with customizable fractional energy, which may improve a variety of skin problems ranging from superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (rhytids and tightening). Variable depths, densities and energy levels are used to give the possibility of results that were previously unattainable without excisional surgery.

The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the subdermal tissue may promote collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions may allow the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated. Fractora may deliver improvements in a broad range of symptoms of ageing skin including fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness.
Fractora may offer improvements for ageing skin that would previously have required 2, 3 or even 4 different technologies.
Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins may promote faster healing of the treatment tissue. The versatility of parameters allows the treating professional to vary the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.
Most common uses of Fractora resurfacing is for those who wish to:
- Reduce wrinkles or deep lines.
- Reduce fine lines.
- Tighten skin.
- Reduce red and brown spots.
- Improve skin texture.
Whilst there are other fractional resurfacing options available, most help to improve only one or two of the symptoms of ageing skin. Some are best suited for treating wrinkles while others will tend to improve texture or pigment. Fractora may deliver improvements for the broadest range of symptoms of ageing skin, all with one treatment. Radio Frequency energy has been shown in research studies over the years to vastly improve the appearance of ageing skin.
Fractora can be used in most areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discoloured red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck.
How quickly will you see results?
Some results may be seen immediately, but typical results are seen two weeks after treatment and can continue up to three months after treatment. Most patients can expect to have between 1-6 Fractora sessions. To see continued results and for skin maintenance, we recommend undergoing Fractora Resurfacing every 8-16 weeks, depending on your skin type, age and condition. This varies from person to person. You can do the treatment as often as every 5-6 weeks or you can go longer in between treatments.
