Forma Plus (which is made for larger areas) is a modality that helps tighten skin on the face, neck, and body. This is a radiofrequency (RF) technology that emits a warm, deep heat and uses the RF energy to help stimulate the production of new collagen and provide effective skin contraction in the deep layers of skin, with no area being under or over-treated. This ensures maximum safety and consistent results. This technology is FDA-approved, and unlike other treatments which tend to use lasers, FORMA has no lights or laser components. This means that treatments can be performed on any skin type.
Patients see an improvement in skin elasticity almost immediately with long-lasting results. FORMA is non-invasive and non-surgical. FORMA specifically targets wrinkles in these areas:
Radiofrequency thermal treatments have had many advancements. With FORMA, you will notice almost instant enhancements in your skin texture, tightness, and a decrease of fine lines and wrinkles. Those who receive this treatment will enjoy:
It is smart to have realistic expectations when it comes to your treatment results and know that FORMA should be done with regular exercise and healthy eating. FORMA treatments are NOT part of a weight-loss program. They are also not painful. Patients feel some warmth on their skin and a “tightness” throughout the treatment process. Patients that have minimal issues can expect to see dramatic, ongoing results after just one treatment.
FORMA is also not permanent, so you will be required to have regular treatments to maintain your results long-term. Over time, patients generally notice a decline in the folds of their skin – which leads to smoother contouring of their body – and sagging skin appears toned and lifted. During your consultation with one of our specialists, you can discuss how many additional treatments you will need over a 6-8 week period. Reverse the effects of sun damage, aging, and stress – even sagging skin after a large amount of weight loss – with the help of FORMA!
Areas of Concern:
Forma (plus) uses fractionated radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production for body remodeling. After Forma (plus) treatments you can achieve a more youthful and toned skin contour making your body appear smoother, sexier and younger.
Forma (plus) is recommended for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to address targeted areas that require contraction. Forma (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.
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.
Forma (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.
Forma (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.
Forma (plus) is essentially painless and has no downtime; it feels like a hot stone massage. Patients may see slight redness in the treated area, which will lessen within a few hours. All patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Typically, weekly sessions are recommended over a six to eight week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a pre-evaluation. Best results will be noticed over time or after a series of treatments.
