Fractora is a skin resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles to slow the effects of aging and restore skin to a more youthful appearance. Fractora lets you look and feel younger.
Fractora skin resurfacing can be used on any skin that needs renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth, and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring are also suitable for treatment.
A Fractora skin rejuvenation treatment in Austin, TX may be suitable for the following areas, depending on the cosmetic concerns you wish to address. Areas that may be treated with Fractora include:
Fractora costs approximately $500 per treatment area, the cost can vary depending on the extent of treatment required. Fractora delivers noticeable results in one treatment, however, the vast majority of patients will need between 1 to 6 treatments to see results. The more advanced signs of aging, laxity, or skin discoloration a person has, the more sessions that are needed to provide a great clinical result. During your consultation, Dr. Whitfield will provide you with a recommended number of treatments to meet your goals so you will know exactly how much the final cost is before agreeing to start treatment.

If you are bothered by signs of aging but are not interested in surgical treatment options, then there are many reasons you might want to try Fractora skin resurfacing with Dr. Robert Whitfield. Some of the most appealing advantages of Fractora treatments include:
Fractora applies fractional energy to the skin. This generates heat in certain dermal layers where collagen production occurs. Collagen is necessary for youthful skin to stay strong and healthy. By promoting natural collagen induction using heat energy, Fractora triggers a repair process that helps make skin stronger, thicker, firmer, and more even in tone and texture.
Dr. Whitfield offers Fractora at his plastic surgery clinic for just $500 per treatment area, but the cost can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed.
Depending on the extent of skin aging, patients can expect to have between 1 to 6 Fractora sessions in order to see a pronounced result. Fractora results may vary. Dr. Whitfield has been performing Fractora in Austin, TX for many years. After a skin examination and discussion of your needs, he will recommend the appropriate number of Fractora treatments that are needed to obtain your desired cosmetic goals.
Each Fractora treatment is spaced 6 weeks apart. It’s best to stick to the treatment schedule that Dr. Whitfield recommends in order to get the best Austin fractional laser results. However, there is no harm in waiting a few weeks longer between a treatment here or there, if absolutely necessary. We understand that many of our Austin clients have busy lives and hectic schedules.
Visible results can be seen immediately after each treatment, but typically after two weeks is when the most noticeable results take place. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment as the skin responds to the treatment.
Fractora recovery is fast and easy, compared to invasive treatments that have a long downtime. It is normal for the skin to feel tender and look red for a few days after the treatment. This usually lasts about one week but may vary, as each patient’s skin is different.
Makeup may be worn (if desired) starting 24 to 48 hours after treatment unless Dr. Whitfield recommends otherwise. It is very important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen and avoid strong sun after skin resurfacing because fresh, healthy skin is more sensitive to sunburn. Any sunscreen will do, but mineral formulas containing zinc, for example, can be more comfortable to wear than chemical sunscreens since the skin may feel more delicate right after treatment.
Yes. Fractora works great alone, but it can also be combined with other anti-aging treatments to deliver a more dramatic age reversal. Fractora is an excellent complement to both surgical and nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedures performed by Dr. Whitfield. While you do not have to pursue additional skincare or surgical treatments, he may suggest additional procedures that are designed to enhance your result. Never pushy, Dr. Whitfield will only recommend treatments that he believes will create meaningful change to the appearance of your aging skin. He wants every patient to leave feeling satisfied and looking great.
