What Is Forma?
Forma is a non-invasive, thermal skin treatment that uses radiofrequency to target deep into the skin’s layers to improve elasticity and build collagen.
This wrinkle treatment is commonly used on the forehead lines, crow’s feet, brows, bags under the eyes and the skin on the neck. Its radio-frequency energy and heat work together by stimulating the deep tissue which then tightens and enhances the skin. It can be used to tighten the jawline, remove folds, lift the eye area, sculpt the cheekbones, and more.
How Does Forma Work?
Forma uses radiofrequency and heat to provide skin contraction in the deeper layers of your skin. The radiofrequency energy stimulates the formation of collagen and also contracts the layers of your skin giving you a tighter, smoother, more youthful look.
Before treatment begins, a cool conductive gel is applied to the treatment area. The device is then massaged on the treatment area and the highly trained medical professional will concentrate on shaping the areas of concern.
Am I A Good Candidate for Forma?
Forma works well for any skin type. Candidates for Forma include those who are beginning to show signs of aging such as:
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin that has begun to lose elasticity.
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
Treatments take approximately 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated.
- It begins with a cool gel on the treatment area.
- The handheld device is then applied over the treatment area to deliver radiofrequency energy.
- At the conclusion of the treatment, the gel is washed off of the treatment area and a moisturizer is applied.
A series of 6 treatments spaced one week apart are typically required for best results.
Patients report feeling a warming sensation on the skin and slight redness after the treatment. The warmth and redness typically subside within hours after the treatment.
