Would You Like a Single or a Double? (Fractora That is)

Fractora is a marvelous treatment. It tightens and firms your skin, it reduces acne scars, it shrinks wrinkles.  It gives delightful results in areas that are traditionally hard to get good results, like lip lines, crows-feet and forehead wrinkles. There is a reason it is one of our favorite treatments as well as a favorite of our clients.


At SkinScience, we do not believe in cookie cutter approaches to skin care. Every time you as our patient comes through our doors, we re-evaluate and re-analyze your skin. Through this constant and regular process, we get to know your skin and your goals very well.  This allows us to create the perfect plan for YOU, all while adjusting your plan and treatment to how YOUR skin responds and changes.


We extend constant re-evaluation and customization to all of our treatments, including our Fractora treatments. We have talked about the benefits of IPL boosted Fractora, but another customization option that you might be the ideal candidate for is our double Fractora.  Here are some of the differences between our Single Fractora and our Double Fractora:


Single Fractora

This is where we start most patients with their first Fractora treatment.  A Single Fractora uses one treatment head.  The treatment head used for this treatment will tighten and firm your skin, target fine lines, help improve shallow acne scars, shrink pores, shrink lines around your lips and create livelier looking skin. It can safely be used over your entire face including around the eyes and over areas considered “bony” like foreheads. A Single Fractora will also tighten and firm the skin on your neck, helping to reduce fine to medium sized wrinkles on your neck.


Double Fractora

A Double Fractora uses two treatment heads. The one we talk about above, AND one that targets deeper collagen. With a Double Fractora you will see all of the improvements we see with the single above, AND we can shrink/reduce jowls (sagging or uneven jawline) tighten your double chin, lift the cheeks to reduce nasal labial folds (deep smile lines) shrink deeper wrinkles and target medium to deep acne scars.


During a Double Fractora, we are able to layer the two treatment heads over the same area, ensuring the absolute maximum possible positive results, even in areas with multiple concerns. A Double Fractora treatment means we are able to offer you a more customized treatment. Custom treatments mean better results.


Add and IPL Booster

Yes, you can add an IPL booster to your Single Fractora or your Double Fractora for the best results possible.  Adding an IPL booster means your skin will be firmer, tighter, have less wrinkles AND be more even. (It really is like turning the clock back several years)


Who needs makeup when you have this amazing combination of treatments?


Not you!

IPL Boosted Fractora; A Journal (No Details Withheld!)



Fractora Day! Fractora Day! Yes! Yes! Yes! I am so excited.  I have seen so many positive results on others, its finally my turn! Plus, my wicked sun damage needs to be knocked back. It got so much worse with, my last pregnancy, it’s about time!


My biggest concern? Not being hydrated enough.  I know that if I’m not hydrated enough, the treatment won’t work as well, and it will hurt more.  Sooooo where’s my water bottle????


Almost lunch time:

I’ve now finished my third refill on my large water bottle, all before lunch, and I have just completed my fourth trip to the ladies’ room.  Confirmation of hydration!  I’m glad that I know that my technician will let me sneak out again to visit the ladies room if needed! LOL


After lunch:

Numbing cream on. Time to wait.

**45 min later**

Numbing cream off…. This feels totally weird!  I am surprised at how numb I feel! Even my lips feel a little numb.


Treatment Time:

(Start with IPL)

Weird, I can feel the IPL more than I thought I would. It’s not painful, but I thought I’d feel less.  My technician tells me she can see lots of popping (technical term for a positive treatment of brown spots) so I am thrilled!


Ok, onto the Fractora now, and I can hardly feel it!  I would say on a scale of 1-10, this rates at a 1.5-2. Totally tolerable!  (All my water worked!) This treatment is shockingly comfortable! I really expected it to be more uncomfortable!  The part the bothers me the most?  Being numb.


Treatment is done:

I am a little puffy, and I definitely have some redness, but overall, it’s not too bad. I can feel some warmth in my face as the numbing is wearing off, but not enough to really bother me.



I’m headed to bed, most of the redness has come down by now.  My skin feels a little sensitive, but overall it really isn’t bad. The cream and the water help a lot with keeping any discomfort at bay.




I’m still a little pink, and I have slight swelling, but I doubt anyone will notice.  I can feel that the micro lesions have closed, so that is good!  All my brown spots are more prominent, which I expected. Healing is happening, that means results are close behind!


Late morning:

I’m at the gym.  I put on a bit of mineral powder makeup before leaving the house. All the regular Friday people are here, the people I see almost every Friday, and not one of them has given me weird look, or sideways glance, no one has noticed I look like I have had “something done”. Nice!


I feel good, I did my regular work out, just slowed it down a bit so I didn’t get too sweaty. My skin is slightly more sensitive, but overall feels great.





Almost all the pinkness is gone, I’m slightly puffy, but only very slightly, so I’m pretty sure I am the only that can notice it.  Some of my micro-lesions have turned slightly brown, making me look more freckled than usual.  Makeup covers this nicely.  I have a few spots that feel dryer and tighter, but not so much that it bothers me.



Had a family dinner with my in-laws, and not one person gave me a funny look or noticed that I a treatment. I was wearing makeup, but I thought that they might still notice, but nope!




Today the pinkness and swelling are gone, I still have a few tight dry spots.  I now have a bit of flaking as well.  A bit of extra moisturizer camouflaged it easily. Overall my skin feels good!



The flaking has pretty much stopped, I have zero swelling or redness that I can see at all.  I think I am already seeing results, but this soon I am wondering if I’m crazy?



I am not crazy! I can totally see the beginnings of positive results.  The crinkles in my cheeks are better, the crinkly lines under my eyes are softer, and my skin tone has already improved sooooo much! This is awesome! I know I’ve got lots more time before final results, so this is exciting!



I ran into an acquaintance that I hadn’t seen in about 3 months, she told me my skin looked great! I can see it too.  I am ecstatic that the lines under my eyes are so much better. My makeup is no longer getting stuck in the fine lines around my eyes.  The crinkles in my cheeks are wayyyy better too. I used to have to blend the makeup out of my lines after lunch every day, and I haven’t had to do that in the last week.


I’ve booked my next one already, I’m told that the results get better each time so I can’t wait to do the next one!

Should You Do IPL Boosted Fractora?

At SkinScience, we work hard to have an extremely thorough consultation with each of our clients so that we have an in-depth understanding of what each individual client is hoping to achieve.  We also try hard to understand each client on a deeper level so we can understand which treatment path is the right one for them.


At the end of our one hour comprehensive consultation, we discuss treatment options. We frequently recommend different treatment options for different individuals.  At that point, we frequently get asked questions like:


“Why didn’t you recommend ___________, “ (Fill in blank with any other treatment)





“Why are you recommending IPL boosted Fractora instead of________”


There are several reasons we recommend the combination of IPL boosted Fractora instead of just recommending a facial or a peel, here are the most common reasons:


Every treatment has its limitations.

Or in other words, another treatment won’t give the results you are looking for. It would be awesome if a Dermaplaning could tighten a jawline, or eliminate wrinkles for the long term but it can’t. Same goes for peels, and facials. Facials area perfect for helping to create healthier skin, as well as giving a deep hydration boost, relaxation, extractions, and light exfoliation, but facials are not capable of targeting the deeper signs of aging. If you desire better results, you will need a better treatment.


You have your own unique aging concerns (aka what works for your girlfriend might not be what you need)

Every individual has their own unique aging story. Every person’s genetics and life experiences are unique to them, and create their own unique needs. Creating a cookie cutter treatment approach, doesn’t work as well as a treatment approach that targets each clients’ specific needs individually. In order for you to get the most ideal results, we take all of your unique needs into consideration.


You are seeking improvement to more than one issue and don’t want surgery.

Part of our consultation process is to take the time to listen, really listen to what you as our client really, really want.  If you have brought to our attention that you want maximum results, that are long lasting or permanent and you want to target more than one of the following at once:



-Large pores

-Sun spots


-Uneven Skintone

-Lack of firmness


-Uneven jawline


-Lines around the mouth

-Lines around the eyes or Crows-feet

-Firmer skin

-Acne scarring




Then it’s not likely a singular treatment will help as much as a combined therapy like IPL boosted Fractora.



Often clients come in with one primary concern. However, if you are one of the ones that desires improvement to more than one of the concerns listed above, then doing a combined treatment is the way to go. Doing treatments together always gives better results. (to read about how and why combined treatments work better, click here to read our previous blog post about it).


If you are interested in learning about your unique aging needs, give us a call! We live to help you find the ideal treatment for your unique needs.

That is why we are now offering: IPL Boosted Fractora

IPL boosted Fractora offers all of the deep tightening benefits of Fractora with all the skin brightening of an IPL. It is an amazing treatment that when the two technologies are combined, create better results than when we do each treatment on its own.

IPL boosted Fractora enables us to give our clients wonderful results that help them achieve the goal of looking amazing for their age; naturally!

The IPL boosted Fractora is done in a few short hours, with most clients being in clinic for about two hours. Recovery is fast, and results can start to been seen about 1 week after treatment. The best part, is that clients achieve amazing results without altering their appearance. This is because the treatment works by stimulating your own collagen. Because it’s your own collagen you look like you, just firmer, tighter, less wrinkled, fewer sun spots and less redness, which creates an overall younger looking you!

The treatment is very comfortable. A topical numbing cream is applied beforehand, and clients most commonly report a discomfort level of 2*

* (out of 10, with 10 being discomfort to the point of stopping treatment)

If you want to look your absolute best, with skin that is smooth and even, without redness and sun spots, that is firmer and tighter along the jawline, with fewer wrinkles overall, IPL boosted Fractora is for you.

If you want to regain the confidence that has slipped away with age, IPL boosted Fractora is for you.
