At The Caudle Center Medical Spa, we offer the Fractora ablative RF, various skin peels, SkinPen (see Microneedling) as skin resurfacing treatment options. Our experienced providers utilize these treatments and a variety of prescription grade skin care regimens to provide superior improvements in skin texture, wrinkles, acne scars, and contraction, and a variety of other skin resurfacing and rejuvenating properties.
The Fractora Advantage
The Fractora skin resurfacing treatment is the first bipolar radio-frequency fractional treatment that provides superior improvements in skin texture, wrinkles, acne scars, and contraction by fractionally ablating the skin and restructuring deeper tissue.
Fractora delivers bipolar RF energy to various depths in the skin through an array of pin electrodes. This creates micro lesion zones of ablation, coagulation and heating, leading to rejuvenation and contraction. Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with tunable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (rhytids and tightening).
- A safer alternative to a surgical facelift.
- Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
- Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue. Fractora meets and exceeds the results of fractional CO2 without the associated downtime, prolonged redness, and pigmentation drawbacks.
- Variable settings allow your Physician to customize the level of heat and treatment depth for your needs.
How Fractora Works
Fractora delivers RF energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated. Fractora can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, cheeks, mouth and neck. RF energy heats the skin in a controlled manner to remodel deep collagen and improve the appearance of the skin.

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.
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment (depending on the decided regime). Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
Patients will be given a ZO Post Procedure Kit which will include all the products and instructions needed to be used throughout the healing process. It is vital that the aftercare regimen be followed in order to get the best perceived results.
During the complimentary consultation, our providers and staff will discuss the different treatment parameters, which involve either topical anesthetic, or injectable local anesthetic, and depending on the treatment areas, and how many treatments expected.
