Forma is an effective treatment for tightening the skin. It uses radiofrequency technology to address various areas on the face and body where wrinkles and / or sagging skin is present. Noticeable results for concerns such as: crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, jowls, neck bands, sagging knees, bingo wings and loose skin around the stomach can be achieved, as skin becomes smoother and firmer.
The skin loses elasticity through the ageing process, as the production of both collagen and elastin starts to decline. Most adult men and women will find that as they reach their 30’s or 40’s, this loss will affect the look and feel of the skin, often producing an appearance that looks tired, worn and a little droopy. Although these concerns are often more visible on the face, the body can also be affected.
The Forma treatment involves moving a warm wand over the chosen area, in circular motions. Heat energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the dermis, aiming to reach a maximum temperature of around 43 degrees. A healing response is then triggered naturally by the body which stimulates the elastin fibres. As a result, the skin tightens and new collagen is produced; increasing the levels within.
The results can start to develop from the very first treatment; developing further through a series of sessions – up to 6 procedures is often recommended (1 per week). Improved elasticity in the dermis can help to firm up the appearance of sagging skin, whilst also helping to soften the look of lines and wrinkles. Your youthful new look can also boost confidence and raise your self-esteem.Book a Consultation
