Forma uses surface application of radiofrequency technology to provide skin contraction and collagen production in the deep layers of your skin. The radio-frequency energy is designed to stimulate formation of new collagen and improvement of skin elasticity.
Forma can be used on all skin of the both the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: Forehead, crows feet (smile lines around eyes), under-eyes, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines, chin and neck.
The proprietary A.C.E (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology was the basis of the Forma treatment method. Radio-frequency energy is used in A.C.E. technology to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.
Forma is a great treatment for patient seeking a non-invasive and natural looking approach to improvements in skin tightening and skin tone and texture irregularities. It is suitable for all skin types. The usual noted benefits include skin that feels smoother and more defined, with a reduction in wrinkles.
Most of our patients find Forma a pleasant warm feeling that has been described “like a hot stone massage”. It is essentially a painless procedure with no downtime. Slight redness in the treatment area which subsides within a few hours is common post-procedure.
We often recommend weekly sessions over a six-eight week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. But as always, we will taylor the treatment plan to your desired outcome, and skin type.
Forma is commonly used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, and aesthetic injectables.
Not much! You walk out of our clinic with glowing skin. But as always we want you to love and care fo your skin. So we strongly advise avoiding sun exposure for the first 48hrs and diligence with daily sunscreen application. That’s just good practice for everyone!
