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 of your skin’s overall appearance with smoother skin and a more radiant glow.**
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.
By stimulating production of fresh collagen, Forma not only enhances your skin's suppleness, but it also offers remarkably rejuvenating results. A safe, stable current of radio frequency energy flows between electrodes applied to your skin that prevents undertreatment or overtreatment. In addition, the Forma device is equipped with a sensor for precise gauging of your skin's surface temperature. This advanced technology allows your doctor to obtain real-time skin temperature for optimizing treatment.
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 with less wrinkles. If you are looking for a non-invasive “mini” facelift that lifts and tightens your skin, reduces irregularities in skin texture and tone and gives your skin a more youthful appearance, Forma may be just right for you.
Forma can be used both on 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.
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. In fact, clients undergoing Forma skin tightening in Bakersfield report the procedure feels similar to a gentle, warm massage. The ability of the Forma device to maintain a pleasant skin temperature also contributes to keeping the procedure comfortable and easy. No downtime is needed following a Forma treatment.**
The only side effect of Forma is redness to treated areas, which diminishes in two to three hours.** Clients can resume their normal activities after leaving our clinic.
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals with mild skin laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a medical pre-evaluation. Multiple sessions are necessary for producing enough new collagen in your skin to achieve desired tightening, firming and wrinkle reduction. Although you will not need “maintenance” Forma sessions, your skin will continue aging naturally. Consequently, you may wish to undergo future Forma treatments on an as-needed basis.
Yes, Forma can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables and/or fillers. Please speak to your aesthetic provider when considering combining Forma with other treatments.
Many Forma patients will combine Forma with Fractora Resurfacing and Lumecca Photofacial for a treatment series called FracTotal Facial. Providing remarkable improvements on your skin texture and tone through skin resurfacing and ablation, Fractora delivers radio frequency energy to skin using localized heat and special Fractora pins. Collagen restructuring occurs in subdermal tissue treated with Fractora to rejuvenate aging skin.
Using intense pulsed light technology, Lumecca Photofacial reduces the appearance of age spots, freckles, rosacea, sun damage and minor vascular lesions.
