Skin Rejuvenation–Hydrafacials and Ultrasonic Facials
Forma-Non-Surgical Radiofrequency Treatment For Wrinkles
Forma is a skin and tissue remodeling technology equipped with a subdermal heating applicator. Radiofrequency travels via electrodes to deliver a non-invasive and pain-free treatment, and it allows the device to reach optimal temperatures. Forma effectively treats the forehead, upper and lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls and neck.
This facial treatment works to:
- Forma has a thermal temperature sensor built into the handpiece allowing clinicians to acquire skin temperature in real-time.
- Forma provides unprecedented safety of RF delivery. The “cut off temperature” feature reduces RF energy automatically when the handpiece senses that the required skin temperature has been reached.
- Clinical evidence suggests prolonged exposure to temperature above 40°C is advantageous for optimal clinical outcomes.
- Safe on all skin types.
Targeting Skin Laxity Anywhere on the Face and Body
The skin depends on collagen and elastin to remain tight to our face and body. Collagen is the main structural protein, the building block of the skin. Elastin is an extracellular matrix protein that gives elasticity and resilience to the skin. Collagen and elastin are found in the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis, which is located right above the fatty layer beneath the skin. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin slows down, resulting in skin laxity.
FORMA heats up the skin of the targeted area to comfortably tighten sagging, wrinkled skin by rebuilding collagen. It is a non-invasive temperature-controlled radio-frequency system that will fight skin laxity and help you achieve supple, tighter-looking skin. We recommend 6-8 treatments spaced out 1-2 weeks apart. The results last about one year. A maintenance treatment every 1 to 3 months will prolong your initial results.
FORMA is FDA approved safe and comfortable treatment that requires NO downtime.
The hand piece will gently glide over the targeted areas heating up your skin and the tissues below the surface of the skin. Some redness and swelling may appear in the treated area and will subside after a few hours. The procedure is comparable with the warm massage. It will restore elasticity; make your skin smoother and firmer and younger.
Important Safety Considerations: FORMA radio-frequency should not be used on patients who are pregnant, have an active skin infection in or around the area of application.
FORMA FACE is a great treatment for any skin type. It is effective for various areas of the face that appear slack, loose, or show fine lines and wrinkles, including: forehead, eyelids, cheeks, lips, jaw, neck and décolleté.
