At drs skincare in Hamilton, Ontario, we use the latest, safest, and greatest technologies to tighten, tone, recontour, and erase many signs of aging and conditions that detract from a vibrant, healthy appearance. Forma is a versatile treatment that uses advanced technology to tighten lax or saggy skin. Those who undergo Forma treatment also “lift” their skin non-invasively – without extensive surgical interventions such as facelift procedures. Furthermore, Forma may be used on the face (and body) to soften fine lines.
Turn back the clock
Collagen and elastin are substances that our bodies produce naturally. They are responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Over time, our bodies produce less of these beneficial proteins. Environmental and lifestyle factors can further degrade these and other vital substances. Notably, exposure to UV rays from tanning in the sun or artificial sources can hasten the skin aging process or worsen the effects of aging. These factors contribute to skin laxity and wrinkling.
Fortunately, we can treat the source of many age-related conditions with today’s modern technologies. Forma effectively tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates by stimulating renewed collagen and elastin production. The “magic” behind the Forma system is its use of powerful, therapeutic radiofrequency (RF) energy. When delivered safely and precisely to a targeted skin area, RF energy and controlled heat penetrate the deep layers of the skin. Deep tissue is stimulated, and the process of building elastin and collagen begins anew.
Due to the nature of the treatment, individuals notice gradual improvements in the tone, firmness, and overall quality of their skin in the days and weeks following their Forma appointment.

What to expect
If we determine that you are a good candidate for a “Forma facial,” just kick back and relax! Since the system is so customizable and features such as temperature can be monitored well, treatment requires little more than a cooling gel applied to the skin for safety and utmost comfort.
The gel also allows the handpiece that delivers RF energy to the skin to glide across the treatment area effortlessly. Treatment is so well-tolerated that many patients describe it as feeling similar to a hot stone massage! Due to built-in customizability, Forma is safe for all skin types and typically has minimal adverse effects.
The total number of sessions that are necessary depends on factors such as the nature and severity of laxity, wrinkling, or other skin concerns. Generally, optimal improvement is visible within three months as collagen and elastin are replenished.
Putting your best face forward without a facelift
Forma is indicated for use on nasolabial folds around the mouth, the neck, “jowls,” upper and lower eyelids, and the forehead. It may also be administered to the arms to correct “batwings,” the backside, knees, and other body areas. While we can reset the clock, drs skincare can’t stop the march of time. So, we will discuss ways to maintain stunning improvements from Forma treatment with good skincare and annual maintenance treatment sessions.
