Forma™ Fractional Thermal Contraction Skin Tightening
Discover Younger Acting Skin
WHAT IS FORMA?
Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep
layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen
and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting improvement of your skin’s appearance.
HOW DOES FORMA WORK?
Forma was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire,
Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses radio-frequency energy to
target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.
IS FORMA FOR ME?
Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a
non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in skin tone and texture
irregularities. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined
with less wrinkles.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Forma can be used both on the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crows feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, popular treatments consist of the arms (bat wings), abdomen and other areas that may need contraction.
WILL IT HURT?
Forma is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology
and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common postprocedure, which subsides within a few hours.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals
with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each
treatment. Scheduling should be based on a medical pre-evaluation.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH
Yes, Forma can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables and/or filler. Please speak to your aesthetic provider when considering combining Forma with other treatments.
WHAT IS FRACTOTAL FACIAL?
Many Forma patients will combine Forma with Fractora Resurfacing and Lumecca Photofacial for a treatment series called FracTotal Facial. FracTotal Facial is the ultimate skin renovation treatment that addresses all in-demand facial concerns including skin laxity, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, wrinkles and pigmentation.
