Why we Want the Fractora Non-surgical Lift
The Fractora non-surgical lift is one of the most advanced fractional radio frequency and micro-needling resurfacing treatments available. This procedure helps reduce wrinkles, shrink large pores, smooths out texture and tone and slows the effects of aging while restoring collagen - which in return helps with skin laxity. Fractora is your key to a more-youthful appearance within a short time period. The all-in-one treatment will also help significantly reduce the appearance of mild-to-severe acne and acne scarring in just a few treatments.

Fractora is a diverse colorblind procedure that can treat all skin types. If you're looking for a treatment with minimal downtime with exceptional results that treats a variety of skin concerns, Fractora is for you.

How it works: Unlike regular micro-needling, Fractora uses radio frequency at the same time. A small square device with 24 to 60 microscopic pins is used to penetrate the epidermis of the skin. These perforations stimulate the skin's natural repair process. Once the microscopic pins are in the skin, an advanced radio frequency technique is delivered beneath the dermis in a controlled way to revitalize collagen, which will tighten the area being treated. You can see significant results after one treatment, however depending on what your concern is, a series of one to six can be performed to achieve optimal results.

The side effects: Side effects are minimal; patients can expect to be red for one to three days post treatment and makeup can be applied after 48 hours. Microscopic pin-point scabs may last up to a week.

Results: Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks more noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.

We Tried It! Cryo-Facial at Mend
"I just got out of my first Cryo-Facial at Mend (294-7898). Kendra was wonderful and explained everything every step of the way. The facial was fab, too! I was scared of the cold at first, but this was refreshing - like I had walked outside on a winter morning with the wind blowing. They use products from The Body Deli featuring potent, pure and raw food ingredients made nearby in the Coachella Valley - my facial included mango, pineapple and blueberry. The products are kept refrigerated, so it fit nicely with Mend's cool, natural approach to self-care. Kendra also gave me a jade stone massage to help to clear impurities, depuff and smooth the area. After the treatment, my skin felt amazing to the touch and was rosy, bouncy and glowing. A few days after, I noticed that my skin had really cleared up thanks to the treatment, too. I will definitely be back!"

PRP for You & Me
PRP, or platelet rich plasma is used many different ways in the medical field. In the medical esthetics world, PRP, which is full of natural growth factors, is used to stimulate collagen in the skin. Patients have seen a significant improvement in the brightness and texture of their skin, as well as a reduction of wrinkles and imperfections.

How is this magical elixir procured? From a simple blood draw! The vial is then spun in a centrifuge to separate plasma, platelets and red blood cells. The platelets are then re-infused with the plasma, resulting in PRP.

The PRP can then be applied topically to the skin during a micro-needling treatment; it can also be re-injected into the skin. For example, when PRP is reinjected right under the eyes, a patient can see a dramatic reduction in wrinkles and crepiness within only a few months.

Under-eye injections cost around $500 and several treatments may be necessary for maximum results. It's worth it - because PRP is truly natural! Because PRP is drawn from the actual patient, treatments are completely safe and allergy free.
