Treating skin problems such as wrinkles, poor skin texture, discoloured skin, and acne scars has for decades been done using different methods, including laser and surgery. Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing
Here at Doux Papillon MediSkin Clinic, we are thrilled to offer Fractora to customers who would like to treat the following skin problems:
- Skin laxity
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and deeper wrinkles
- Pigmentation and vessels
This non-surgical treatment option is suitable for face and body areas that have wrinkles, acne scarring or discoloured brown or red skin tone. The most common areas include upper and lower eyelid, forehead, smile lines, mouth, cheeks, and neck.
How it Works
Fractora uses an array of microfine pins to deliver radio-frequency energy to the skin, and the pins produce small micro-lesion dots and localized heat in the treatment area. The gentle heat promotes collagen restructuring that rejuvenates the skin and improves its appearance. Fractora has lower risk of PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) than laser treatment.
Our physicians can treat you with the InMode machine on high setting and lower setting varies level of strength depending on the problems being treated and the severity of the problems. Most patients will need about three treatment sessions but may go up to 6 sessions depending on the severity and the patient’s response.

The Treatment Procedure
