Forma is one of the most advanced, effective skin rejuvenation treatments available today. It’s painless, and there is no downtime. Forma treats wrinkles and sagging skin on the entire face and neck as well as restoring definition.
This non-invasive treatment is suitable for all skin types. The result is skin that is smoother, thicker, plumper and more elastic, with improved definition to the cheekbones and jaw.
As your skin ages, it loses elasticity, thins, and the texture becomes uneven. This treatment works by delivering a finely controlled heating of the skin, which will simulate the production of collagen due to the skin’s healing response to heat, promoting skin elasticity. Over time the contours of the skin lift and tighten, you will see less wrinkles and a fresher appearance.
How it works
A hand held probe is used to gently massage your face and neck. This probe is heated using radiofrequency. The heat used differs with each patient, as the probe measures the surface temperature of your skin constantly to provide extreme accuracy.
The treatment is painless, and feels like a relaxing hot stone massage. Although it doesn’t feel like your skin is burning, the body’s defences treat it as such, so it heals with increased collagen and elastin production over the following weeks.
The result is that the dermis regains volume with collagen and elastin and the overlying skin looks fresher with fewer wrinkles. Collagen production plumps out the skin naturally and the heating effect of the energy tightens the skin.
After your treatment
Your skin will feel lightly flushed, and will have a fresh, plump appearance straight away. The more fair your skin, the more flushed it will appear. There is a noticeable tightening and lifting of the skin immediately after the first session, which lasts for a few days. We recommend a weekly treatment for eight weeks to see the maximum results, although we will assess your skin to recommend the appropriate course.
Optimal results will be seen around four months after the first treatment, and a maintenance treatment will be required every three months after the first treatment.
