What is Forma Skin Tightening?

Forma is a non-invasive skin procedure that uses heat and radiofrequency energy to increase elastin and collagen production in your face. Collagen and elastin are proteins naturally found in the skin and they are largely responsible for skin laxity and volume. When new collagen is stimulated, the skin is lifted, tightened, and contouring to restore a more youthful appearance. Commonly treated areas include the forehead, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines, and loose skin on the neck and face. The entire skin tightening procedure typically takes less than an hour.

What Happens During the Forma Skin Tightening Treatment?

During the Forma treatment, your aesthetician will apply a thin layer of ultrasound gel to each area being treated. This gel allows the Forma wand to easily glide across the skin. Your aesthetician will work in circular motions, ensuring heat is delivered to each area of the face for an appropriate amount of time. Heat settings can be adjusted as necessary when treating thinner/more sensitive areas of the face.

Does it Hurt?

Forma is considered a pain-free procedure, and most patients tell us it feels like a hot stone massage for your face. At the start of treatment, a cooling gel will be placed on the skin to keep you comfortable and maximize the effectiveness of the Forma laser device. No anesthesia is required, making is safe for almost all patients.

Who is a Candidate for Forma?

Anyone and everyone! Forma is great for younger patients who are looking for prevention, and older patients who are looking to lift and tighten. Forma is also great for anyone getting ready for a big event. We love treating brides and the mother of the bride!

Is There Any Downtime After Treatment?

Some patients report looking a little flushed after Forma treatments, but this resolves shortly after. Other than that, there is truly no downtime. As new collagen develops, patients will see significant improvements in skin texture and sagging skin, leaving them looking glowy, youthful, and refreshed.
