Fractora RF is a nonsurgical skin-rejuvenating treatment, delivering radiofrequency energy—hence the RF—below the skin’s surface, via micro-needling. In the hands of an experienced provider, the Fractora RF device makes micro punctures in the dermis (the lower layer of the skin) with very tiny needles and fractionated radiofrequency energy, which you’ll experience as a farm heat feeling.
Fractora RF triggers the skin’s natural healing response, restructuring the existing collagen, stimulating the production of more collagen, and increasing the rate of cell turnover. The result is tighter, firmer skin, with better tone and more even texture. It also helps reduce acne by shrinking the skin’s oil glands.
Because the Fractora RF treatment promotes healthy, new skin, it can effectively treat many concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, mild skin sagging, scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and even active or cystic acne. Fractora RF truly works wonders.

Fractora RF is generally an extremely safe device, however, a few minor downsides include:
- It is typically a bit painful—Numbing cream is required
- Redness and swelling of the treated area for up to 48 hours after treatment.
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 48 hours after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters and skin conditions.
After your treatment, your provider will send you home with detailed aftercare instructions. You shouldn’t experience too much discomfort, but you will have some mild reddening of the skin and some possible slight swelling could occur. This will disappear in a couple of days. You might also have some light track marks, scabbing, peeling, or even oozing for up to 48 hours. Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. Your fresh new skin will be more sensitive, and making a regular habit of wearing sunscreen will help protect against future skin damage.
