Forma® Facial Skin Tightening
Loose skin and excessive wrinkles can keep us from enjoying the healthy and vibrant looking skin we desire to maintain as we age. Forma by INMODE provides a non-surgical facial skin tightening option for both women and men. Advanced technologies such as Forma tighten skin, smooth out wrinkles, reduce fine lines and improve natural collagen production, without the pain and discomfort of more invasive procedures.
Forma is a unique, non-invasive thermal skin rejuvenation treatment that heats the sub dermal layers to promote collagen and skin tightening on the face, neck, chest, forehead, under eyes, and eyelids. The radiofrequency (RF) energy behind the Forma technology creates a mild firming and skin toning effect that improves the skin’s overall appearance, creating a smoother and more radiant glow.Request an Appointment
How does Forma tighten skin?
Forma is an FDA-approved skin and tissue remodeling technology that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology. The subdermal heating applicator uses RF energy to strategically target deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and enhancing the skin’s elasticity. Given its effectiveness and natural looking results, Forma is one of the most preferred non-surgical cosmetic treatments used at Tribeca MedSpa.
What issues does the treatment address?
Forma facial skin tightening treatment is effective for addressing areas/concerns such as the neck, forehead, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds (smile or laugh lines) and jowls.
What is treatment like?
Before the treatment, your medical provider applies a conductive gel to the treatment area. As the Forma applicator moves over the area, you will feel a warming sensation. Many patients compare it to a warm massage. The heating feeling will gradually increase until it reaches the ideal temperature, but you will continue to remain comfortable. Post treatment, your provider will remove the gel and apply a cool towel to soothe your skin.
How long does Forma treatment take?
This non-invasive skin-tightening treatment takes approximately 30 minutes per area. For optimal skin tightening and toning, you will need several ongoing treatments, usually 6-8 spaced a week or so apart. Your medical provider can more accurately schedule your time and number of treatments during an initial complimentary consultation.
How quickly will I see results?
Everyone’s skin responds differently and for some, results are evident after the first few skin tightening treatments. You will notice continued improvement for months as you progress through your treatment series. The creation of new collagen continues to form over time, allowing your skin to contract even more.
What can I expect after the procedure?
You can anticipate no discomfort or downtime following the procedure. You will notice slight redness and warmth in the area(s) for a couple of hours, but those side effects will dissipate shortly thereafter.
Am I a candidate for Forma facial skin tightening?
For anyone wanting to correct the signs of premature aging and enjoy more youthful looking skin, Forma is a non-invasive, viable option for skin toning and firming. However, if you have more moderate to advanced facial aging, such as obvious jowls and or a neck wattle, Forma is not the right treatment. Forma is safe for use on all skin types.
