Thermal Skin Rejuvenation
WHAT IS FORMA?
Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting improvement.
HOW DOES FORMA WORK?
Forma was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses radiofrequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.
IS FORMA FOR ME?
Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in skin tone and texture irregularities. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined, and a reduction in wrinkles.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Forma can be used on both the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crows feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, popular treatments consist of the arms (bat wings), abdomen and other areas that may need contraction.
WILL IT HURT?
Forma is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common postprocedure, which subsides within a few hours.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a medical pre-evaluation.
WHAT IS PLUS?
Plus uses fractionated radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production for body remodeling. After Plus treatments you can achieve a more youthful and toned skin contour making your body appear smoother, sexier and younger.
IS PLUS FOR ME?
Plus is recommended for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to address targeted areas that require contraction. Plus can be used to reduce texture irregularities in lax skin to provide a lifted appearance. Plus is safe and can be used on all skin types and tones.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE AND FEEL?
During treatment most patients will feel a heat sensation and "feel" tighter. Over time patients typically notice a reduction in the folds of their skin leading to a smoother contour of the body. Textural irregularities will even out and sagging skin will appear more toned.
HOW DOES PLUS WORK?
Plus was created and based on the development and clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control and Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology targets deep within the skin to ensure that no areas are under, or over-treated, thereby maximizing results and providing consistent outcomes.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Plus can be used on parts of the body that may need contraction after the effects of weight gain/loss or general aging. Most common areas of treatment include the abdomen, arms (bat wings), inner thighs, outer thighs, back fat and knees.
How many treatments will I need?
A typical treatment course consists of 6-8 sessions. Each session takes between 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated. Optional maintenance treatments are available to clients seeking prolonged, enhanced results.
How does it work?
Forma technology utilizes Radio Frequency (RF) energy to penetrate the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts thereby accelerating the production of new collagen fibers. Radiofrequency also diminishes the size of fat cells for better contouring.
Am I a candidate?
Forma treatments are suitable for all skin types. However, the extent of the patients' reaction to treatment is client specific. Candidates who maintain a healthy lifestyle and are near their ideal weight typically show the best results.
What can be treated with Forma?
Forma treatments are ideal for:
Will it hurt?
The Forma treatment is virtually painless. During treatment some candidates can experience mild heating sensations. Immediately after treatment, some redness and warmth can be seen and felt on the skin. Both are necessary to the treatment and should disappear within an hour or so following the treatment.
When can I expect results?
Immediate results can be seen during the first treatment. Furthermore, the desired outcome can be seen over a full treatment course. Noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, face and neck contouring and lifting. Clients report a measureable smaller torso, with improved tone and texture of arms, tummy, thighs and a lift in their buttocks.
Will the treatment interrupt my daily routine?
Forma treatment is an in-office procedure with no downtime. You can return to work or your daily routine immediately after your session.
