As you age, your body’s skin replacement process slows down. Without as much collagen, your skin won’t stay in place as well as it did when you were younger. Dry, sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, and sagging can all make you look older. Skin tightening with Forma can help patients rejuvenate their skin for a younger, smoother appearance without the need for surgery.
Benefits of Forma
Forma skin tightening therapy is a relaxing treatment that utilizes radio-frequencies to heat skin cells trigger the deposition of collagen and elastin, leading to firmer, more elastic skin. The result is a tighter, smoother appearance as soon as you walk out of the office.
Forma is safe to use across the body, including the face, neck, arms, and thighs. There is minimal downtime with Forma, and while there may be some redness in the skin after treatment, it will clear up within a couple of hours for most patients.
Because Forma stimulates collagen production, the results are long-lasting, and with proper skin care and maintenance treatments, you can slow down the effects of ageing for years to come. While the number of initial treatments you need varies from person to person, you can expect to see noticeable results right away, with continued improvement as your skin rebuilds.
What to expect from your procedure
During your initial consultation, Dr. Shukla will evaluate the treatment area and discuss your beauty goals to determine if Forma is the best option. During the procedure, a skilled member from the drs skincare team will apply ultrasound gel to the treatment area before applying the handpiece across the skin. You will notice a warm sensation that is comfortable for most and mild redness post-treatment that resolves quickly. The process typically takes about thirty minutes, and you’ll be able to resume regular activity immediately afterward.
