When patients want to improve the texture and tone of their skin, they have several options available at Silverado Medical and Aesthetic Clinic. This includes microdermabrasion, IPL
, or chemical peels
. However, there is a more advanced and revolutionary solution for patients in and around the area of Calgary, AB to consider: skin resurfacing.
What is skin resurfacing?
Many patients experience poor texture and tone which may be contributed to by the unwanted signs of ageing.
Fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and unusually large pores, may cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Many of these conditions cannot be corrected with make up or skin care. This is when the team at Silverado Medical and Aesthetic Clinic may suggest the advantages of using skin resurfacing treatments. We offer resurfacing with Fractora.
What is Fractora?
Fractora is a specialized dermatological device that is used for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. It uses targeted bipolar radiofrequency energy and medical grade needles that can greatly improve issues such as:
- Deep wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Poor skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Large pore size
- Active acne
What to expect during treatment:
Before the procedure a numbing cream will be applied to the skin for added patient comfort. As needles target the skin and deliver energy, the sensation is very tolerable for most patients. When the treatment is completed, the skin may look and feel similar to a sun burn. Do expect 3-7 days of down time as the resurfaces newer and healthier skin cells. Post treatment care will be described and outlined before your procedure.
