Fractora is now available in St. George at Oasis Aesthetics
Fractora technology is designed to provide results beyond microneedling with 2mm penetration of microneedles while simultaneously delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy to improve the skin’s appearance. While microneedling can provide great results with wrinkles, acne scarring, or traumatic wounds, the Fractora is designed to go one step further and in addition to treating everything microneedling does, it also treats sun damage, poor pigmentation/texture, broken veins, and active acne. Together with Morpheus 8 we are able to treat the deep skin and now using Fractora we can treat more superficial blemishes.
