Fractora FAQ’s


Morpheus 8 is a device that is designed to combine microneedling and radio frequency to achieve deep fractional remodeling. The Morpheus 8 doesn’t just address superficial tissue; it directs energy toward the adipose fat that is notorious for creating jowls, bra rolls, and more.

Morpheus 8 can and often is combined with Fractora treatments, also both developed by InMode. This combination may be referred to as EmbraceRF, a treatment that targets the lower third of the face. When combined with either Fractora, the Morpheus 8 aspect of the process enhances the final outcome of treatment by sculpting adipose tissue to support youthful facial contours.

Is Microneedling With Radiofrequency Painful?

It is important to us that our patients have access to the treatments they want without the fear of intolerable discomfort. Microneedling with radio frequency is conducted after a topical anesthetic has been applied to the skin. Within approximately thirty minutes, the cream desensitizes epidermal nerve endings to reduce the sensations from radio frequency to a mild heat. This also significantly reduces or eliminates the sensation of the microneedles passing over the skin.

In addition to numbing superficial tissue with topical analgesic, we also offer patients the opportunity to increase their physical and emotional comfort using ProNox®. This self-delivery nitrous oxide system puts the power in your hands as you undergo the treatment of your choice. Ask about ProNox® during your consultation for skin tightening with Morpheus 8 or any of our other innovative devices.

Who Is A Candidate For Microneedling With RF?

Many adults are excellent candidates for microneedling with radio frequency. This minimally-invasive technique may be ideal for you if you wish to reduce the appearance of:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Poor skin texture
  • Sun damage
  • Deep lines and creases
  • Mild sagging or jowls
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

Combining microneedling with radio frequency and other radio frequency treatments like FaceTite or Fractora may be ideal for:

  • Conservative treatment. Patients who are interested in achieving tighter, smoother skin but prefer to do so without surgery and its risks may be ideal candidates for the latest RF treatments.

Are There Any Side Effects After Treatment With Morpheus 8?

Side effects of Morpheus 8 may include transient redness and swelling. It is possible that some patients may experience temporary bruising. The microneedling aspect of treatment may leave tiny points on the skin that crust and flake off. This should be expected if Morpheus 8 is combined with Fractora. Mild tenderness or soreness may result from the absorption of RF energy and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Our team will discuss the side effects you might experience during your consultation and decision regarding the extent of your treatment plan.

How Many Treatments Are Needed To See Results?

Optimal results may be achieved in as little as one treatment or through a series of treatments conducted over a period of several weeks. We can make an accurate estimate of treatment outcome by observing the condition of your skin, including texture, tone, and laxity, during your consultation.

Fractora FAQs

What is Fractora?
Fractora skin treatment is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles to slow the effects of aging and restore skin to its youthful appearance. Fractora lets you look and feel younger.

What areas can be treated?
Fractora can be used on areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your Fractora treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-6 sessions.

How quickly will I see results?
Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.

What is the benefit of fractionated energy?
Fractionated RF energy found in Fractora is a scientifically proven method that reduces wrinkles. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin, providing exceptional results with almost no patient downtime.

What is the benefit of RF energy?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. Fractora treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Can this be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes, Fractora can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Fractora can also be combined with additional energy treatments or injectables to achieve a more extensive full face result, called a FracTotal Facial.

When can I put make-up on after treatment?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days 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.

What kind of post procedure care is required?
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. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
