Fractora Forma /Fractora Forma Plus
Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic is proud to be one of the first clinics in the Midlands to offer the latest in skin tightening using radiofrequency waves.
What is Fractora Forma?
Dr Sagoo says “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 own elastin and collagen, which may provide beautiful skin tightening and improve the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting remarkable results.”
How does it work?
Fractora Forma and Fractora Plus technologies utilize radio-frequency (RF) energy to penetrate the skin layers. The goal is 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 and at the same time may increase the metabolism of the collagen-producing cells (called fibroblasts), which may accelerate the production of new collagen fibres. Radio-frequency may also diminish the size of fat cells for better contouring.
Fractora Forma and Fractora Plus offer you two configurations of non-invasive treatments, which may produce collagen remodelling. The “Forma” treatment is for the face and neck, while the “Plus” treatment treats the body.
How can sub-dermal heating benefit you?
Fractora treatments may help with:
- Ageing skin, fine lines and deep wrinkles.
- Tightening of loose and sagging skin on the body.
- And more…
Fractora (both Forma & Plus treatments) offer advanced fractional radio-frequency anti-ageing treatment.
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. Optional maintenance treatments are available to clients seeking prolonged, enhanced results.
Am I a candidate?
Fractora Forma 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.
