Fractora is a treatment for loose skin, poor texture, fine lines, wrinkles, pores and scarring.
Fractora combines skin needling and radiofrequency energy. Skin needling is one of the longest standing beauty treatments for effective rejuvenation. It is based on the principle of causing “micro-traumas” in the skin, the body’s response is to repair this injury by making new collagen and elastin.
We combine this technique with radiofrequency (heat energy), the energy is transmitted between the pins deep under the skin, so you get a combined rejuvenation from both needling and heat. This results in resurfacing and tightening of your skin.
Thermal heat energy stimulates fibroblasts resulting in new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

I was amazed by my visit at Hampton Clinic, Dr Hill was fantastic and explained everything about the different procedures and products there was no pressure and my first experience was great and will definitely be going back. I had my eyebrows done on my first visit and very pleased with it. I will definitely be going back for more treatments the staff are friendly.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Fractora would be uncomfortable without pain relief. We use a strong anaesthetic cream which makes the whole procedure very tolerable
What is the difference between Fractora and Tixel?
Fractora and Tixel are similar in their modes of action. Fractora is a doctor treatment compared to Tixel being performed by the beauty therapists, it is a more powerful treatment. Tixel will give similar results, but you will need more treatments to get to the same end result.
What is the difference between Fractora and Morpheus?
Fractora and Morpheus are similar in their modes of action. Morpheus has longer needles and heat treats to a deeper level. Morpheus can treat below the dermis and cause contraction of the subcutaneous fat, this is better for toning the face. Fractora can do very superficial levels which is better for surface texture.
Will I look different?
You will not look different, but healthier and well, you skin will look better quality and firmer.
Is there much downtime?
Downtime is dependent on how aggressively you do a treatment. If you want little downtime then, the energy can be turned down accordingly. If we do an aggressive treatment, you may expect redness up to 3 days, possible mild swelling and tiny faintly visible scabs or micro-crusts. There is no pain after the treatment.
Do I have to avoid the sun?
If you have a superficial treatment, we advise avoiding sun for 4 weeks, deeper treatments do not require strict sun avoidance.
Is it safe in darker skin types?
Yes, although you would not do a superficial treatment in a dark skin type
