Forma™ (for smaller areas) and Forma Plus™ (for larger areas) is a treatment that helps tighten skin on the face, neck, and body. This treatment uses radiofrequency technology which stimulates fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin that rejuvenates the skin making it firmer and more youthful. It is ideal for treating areas such as neck, abdomen, knees, under arms, face and other areas that require tightening.
During treatment, a medical laser technician will apply an ultrasound gel to the treatment area and will glide the Forma™ handpiece over the selected areas in small, concentrated passes until a specific temperature is reached and maintained. Radio frequency will deeply penetrate into the skin, heating the collagen to induce remodeling and collagen tightening. Patients can relax, feeling only a warm heat and movement of the treatment head.
There is no downtime to this treatment. After a session, patients may see slight redness in the treated area, which will lessen within a couple of hours. All patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. For optimal results, Dr. Munk advises that 6-8 weekly treatment sessions are required.
Forma™ can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables and/or filler.
