About Fractional Firming
Fractional Firming treatments utilize radio-frequency energy to tighten and contour the skin of the face and body. This technology induces collagen contraction and stimulates new collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and enhanced skin firmness.

4. What areas can be treated with fractional firming treatments?
Fractional firming treatments are versatile and can target different areas where skin tightening, contouring, and firming are desired, including but not limited to:
5. How are fractional firming treatments performed?
Fractional firming begins with a consultation to assess suitability, followed by the application of controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy using a handheld device. This energy heats the skin’s layers, causing collagen fibers to contract for immediate tightening while stimulating the production of new collagen over time.
6. How long do fractional firming treatments take?
The duration of fractional firming treatments ranges from approximately thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
7. What is recovery like after fractional firming?
There is no significant recovery time associated with fractional firming. Some redness and warmth may occur immediately after treatment but usually dissipate within an hour. Normal activities can be resumed immediately.
8. How soon will I see results?
Shortly after fractional firming treatment, patients often notice improvements in skin texture, fine lines, and skin tightness shortly. However, optimal results may develop gradually as collagen production continues.
9. How long do results last?
Results from fractional firming treatments are long-lasting, but maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the benefits over time. The duration of effects can vary based on individual factors.
10. How much does fractional firming cost in Canada?
The cost of fractional firming treatments varies depending on factors such as the treatment area and the number of sessions required. In Canada, the cost of fractional firming treatments can range from approximately $250 to $1,800 per session.
11. What are the risks of fractional firming?
Fractional firming is considered a generally safe treatment with minimal risks associated.
