Forma Fractional Thermal Contraction
This aesthetic technique uses radio frequency energy to heat the tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce fine lines and loose skin. It induces the production of new collagen and elastin, giving the skin a more youthful appearance.
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 the 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 radio-frequency 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?
At our office we offer Forma skin tightening on the face and neck.
How many treatments will I need?
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.
Will it hurt? Is there any downtime?
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 post-procedure, which subsides within a few hours.
