How Does Forma Work?

Forma works by using radiofrequency energy to target deeper layers of the skin. The advanced nonsurgical skin tightening technology allows providers to safely get to goal skin temperatures for maximum results. With radiofrequency energy, the body is stimulated to produce more collagen, which leads to improvements in skin wrinkles, loose skin, texture, and tone.

Commonly treated areas include the forehead, corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), eyelids, nasolabial folds, neck, jowls, and smile lines. Areas of the body that are commonly treated are the arms and abdomen.

What Makes Forma Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Unique?

Forma is a non-invasive, virtually pain-free method for remodeling and tightening skin by stimulating collagen production. This advanced nonsurgical skin tightening technology has several efficiency and safety aspects built into the platform, including:

  • A temperature sensor in the handpiece that interacts with the skin to allow the target skin temperature to be reached in a time-efficient manner.
  • A “cut off” temperature feature that automatically reduces the radiofrequency energy being delivered when the skin temperature required for nonsurgical skin tightening has been reached.

What Skin Tones and Types Can Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Be Used On?

Forma is safe and has been shown to be effective and safe for use on all skin types.

How Much Downtime Is Needed After Forma Skin Tightening?

One of the unique things about Forma nonsurgical skin tightening is that there is virtually no downtime following a session.

What Should I Expect on the Day of Treatment?

Before you began a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment in a dedicated room, the target area on the face, neck, or body will be cleaned. During the treatment, the gel is applied to the area to improve comfort.

During the nonsurgical skin tightening procedure, the skin is treated with a probe, which is moved gently over the surface. This procedure does not hurt, and some patients describe feeling a warm sensation from the probe. The procedure is virtually painless.

After the treatment, there is not prolonged pain. Some mild redness over the areas treated is not uncommon, and this resolves within a few hours after treatment.

Four to six sessions are recommended and can be done weekly or every two to three weeks. This is determined following your evaluation of the procedure.

What Other Skin-Tightening Options Are Available?

Nonsurgical skin rejuvenation is very effective for many patients, with options beyond Forma including Morpheus8 RF microneedling and BODYTite, which pairs well with liposuction to address lax skin. Those who want a more dramatic result can choose a surgical facelift, arm lift, or other procedure that focuses on their area of concern.
