As you age, your skin becomes lax, and this can make many people feel self-conscious and worried about being seen by others. If you find yourself experiencing loose, sagging skin in the face, neck, chest, arms, and knee, then a Forma™ skin tightening procedure might be the right solution for you. This treatment can provide optimal skin tightening in the areas that need it the most.
Forma™ is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment. This procedure uses radio-frequency technology and has an applicator that is designed to match the contours of the body to target fat cells and reach the deeper layers of the skin. The subdermal heating stimulates collagen and improves elasticity in the treatment area, which results in decreased wrinkles and tighter skin.
With a Forma™ procedure, there is no downtime, and side effects are very minimal. Some patients may experience redness in the treatment area, but that should dissipate within a few hours after the treatment is complete. You should be able to return to normal life within hours of the treatment.
Most candidates for Forma™ are men and women of all skin types who have loose, sagging skin. The most common areas treated are the face, neck, chest, arms, and the knee. By scheduling a consultation with the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa, you will be able to confirm if you are truly a candidate for this skin tightening procedure.
Depending on your specific goals, you could be advised to schedule a series of treatments to achieve the results you desire. Most patients notice their skin tightening results after about eight sessions. If multiple treatments are received and yearly visits are maintained, then your Forma™ skin tightening results may last up to a few years.
