Aging is inevitable, and as we age, our body’s production of collagen declines. Collagen is a protein that helps keep skin looking firm, toned, and youthful. When we lose stores of collagen, the skin loses elasticity. Over time, gravity takes its toll and patients are left with loose or sagging skin, often around the neck and face. Fortunately, at drs skincare, we offer Forma for skin tightening in our Hamilton office. Forma is a revolutionary technology that utilizes controlled heat to stimulate growth in the collagen network. This helps tighten the skin and leaves patients with a younger appearance.
Forma uses radio frequency technology to deliver controlled heat and increase collagen production. Results from Forma are not usually seen immediately, and will gradually appear over 6-8 weeks. Many patients see a continued improvement in skin laxity as collagen production continues. We will work with you to recommend a treatment plan based on your needs and desired results. Most patients require a minimum of 8 treatments, spaced approximately a week apart, for the best results.
Forma sessions are short and produce very little discomfort. Most patients describe it as a warm massage. There may be some redness near the treatment site, but this is temporary and will disappear quickly. Forma is appropriate for most patients regardless of age or skin color. It can be done on various areas of the body including the jowls, neck, abdomen, thighs, and knees.
If you are tired of sagging skin making you look older than you are, come see why so many of our patients are turning towards this alternative to surgery to tighten the skin in trouble areas.
