Forma is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity. This advanced technology has become a popular choice for those seeking to rejuvenate their skin without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.

Celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen have been known to use Forma to maintain their flawless, youthful appearances, and to get ready for red carpet events. By opting for Forma, patients can enjoy the benefits of smoother, tighter skin, achieved through a comfortable and effective treatment process.

How Does Forma Work?

Forma utilizes radiofrequency technology to deliver controlled heat to the deeper layers of the skin. This heat stimulates collagen production and remodels the skin’s structure, resulting in tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Forma is suitable for all skin types and can be used on various areas of the face and body, including the forehead, nasolabial folds, jowls, neck, and abdomen. This collagen stimulation is key to achieving the desired results.

Benefits of Forma Treatment

  • Non-Invasive: Forma is a non-surgical procedure that requires no incisions or anesthesia.
  • Comfortable: Most patients describe the treatment as a warm, relaxing sensation, similar to a hot stone massage.
  • No Downtime: Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  • Immediate Results: Many patients notice an immediate improvement in skin tightness and texture, with continued improvements over several weeks as collagen production increases.
  • Versatile: Forma can be used on multiple areas of the face and body to address various skin concerns.

Ideal Candidates for Forma

Forma is suitable for individuals who are looking to improve skin laxity, texture, and overall appearance without undergoing surgery. Ideal candidates include those who:

  • Have mild to moderate skin laxity.
  • Are experiencing early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Want to enhance the results of other cosmetic procedures.
  • Prefer a non-invasive treatment with no downtime.

What to Expect During the Procedure

During a Forma treatment session, a gel is applied to the treatment area to ensure smooth movement of the handpiece. The handpiece is then moved over the skin in a gentle, circular motion, delivering radiofrequency energy. Patients typically experience a warm sensation, and the procedure is generally comfortable. Treatment times vary depending on the area being treated but usually take about 30 to 60 minutes.

Aftercare and Results

There is no downtime associated with Forma, and patients can return to their regular activities immediately. Some redness and slight swelling may occur but typically resolve within a few hours. Results are often visible after the first treatment, with continued improvements over the next few months as collagen production increases. For optimal results, a series of treatments may be recommended, typically spaced one to two weeks apart.

Combining Forma with Other Treatments

By combining Forma with other treatments such as Ultherapy, Emface, injectables, and Evoke, patients can achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Each combination targets different layers of the skin and underlying tissues, offering both immediate and long-term benefits.

  • Forma and Ultherapy: Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. Combining Ultherapy with Forma can provide a multi-layer approach to skin tightening and lifting, offering both immediate and long-term benefits.
  • Forma and Emface: Emface targets both the skin and underlying muscles to lift and firm. When used with Forma, the combined treatments can enhance facial contours and improve skin texture.
  • Forma and Injectables: Combining Forma with dermal fillers or Botox can address both skin laxity and volume loss, resulting in a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Fillers can restore lost volume and smooth out wrinkles, while Botox can reduce the appearance of fine lines by relaxing facial muscles.
  • Forma and Evoke: Evoke is a hands-free device that delivers radiofrequency energy to remodel facial tissue. Combining Evoke with Forma can enhance skin elasticity and provide a more youthful appearance through comprehensive tissue remodeling and skin tightening.

These combinations allow for a customized treatment plan that addresses multiple skin concerns, leading to enhanced and longer-lasting results.
