Skin Tightening

As we get older, several things happen that make our skin look different. One of the biggest changes is that we start producing less and less collagen. Collagen is a protein responsible for the structure and renewal of cells. It comes into play when your skin is injured, when it comes into contact with UV rays, and whenever it is in need of healing. Collagen is the reason why young people do not develop fine lines or wrinkles.

In our 20s or 30s, our collagen levels drop. When that happens, our skin becomes more susceptible to fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and other issues. In particular, wrinkles occur as a result of the normal facial expressions we make every day. The reason for this is that the movements cause our skin to crease, leaving visible impressions that deepen over time.

The good news is that your body has the ability to produce more collagen and restore the youthful benefits you once enjoyed. It just needs a little encouragement, which is what this treatment provides.

Forma skin tightening

Forma skin tightening treatment is a fast, gentle way to address the signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and skin that has lost its firmness. By harnessing the power of radiofrequency and thermal energy, it stimulates your body’s natural ability to renew itself.

We recommend this treatment to anyone who wants to refresh their look & slow down the hands of time with a safe, straight forward treatment.

It is beneficial to have a series of RF facial treatments prior to Dermal Fillers. The increased firmness to the skin after treatments help to maximize the filler results.

Radio Frequency treatment

What is a Radio Frequency treatment ? – A noninvasive solution to aging.

Radiofrequency skin treatments are non-surgical methods for improving the quality of the skin – specifically skin texture, tone and elasticity. Most people feel that these treatments are virtually painless, producing a sensation of heat, but not much else. The procedures are also relatively quick, usually taking less than an hour to perform. Radio Frequency is a form of electrical current that converts into heat energy once inside the body. The heat generated by the RF travels through both the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin stimulating collagen (a protein that holds skin tissue together) fibers and making them contract, resulting in a tighter, smoother skin. It also accelerates fibroblast (cells that produce collagen) metabolism allowing increased collagen regeneration and long term skin tightening and firming.

It Stimulates Collagen to Rejuvenate Your Tissue – It Firms and Tightens

In addition to losing collagen, many other things happen to your skin over time. These changes include:

• A decrease in natural fillers
• Less elastin
• Less hyaluronic acid
• Reduced access to nutrients through blood flow

As a result of these changes, your skin can become drier and thinner if it is left untreated. Without the structural support it once had, it can start to sag. Forma can counteract all of these processes and restore your skin to better health by stimulating cell turnover. This means that your body will produce newer, healthier cells to replace the old, damaged ones. It also works by tightening the skin, causing loose areas to contract. After this treatment, you will enjoy brighter, more lifted skin.

Everything You Need to Know

How Long Does It Take?

One big advantage to this treatment is that it can be done quickly. You can even schedule it during your lunch break. For the face and most other areas of the body, the total time you will spend from start to finish is about 30-45 min. If you choose to get treated in multiple areas during the same appointment, you can expect us to spend half an hour on each section.

How Is This Treatment Done?

The radiofrequency is delivered by a small hand-held device to heat the skin. We will apply the hand piece in smooth, broad strokes that heat up the skin

What Does Treatment Feel Like?

This treatment delivers heat, but it does so painlessly. Some patients even compare it to a hot stone massage. The device auto-regulates its temperature, ensuring maximum patient comfort throughout the experience. It can also be manually adjusted when we work on more sensitive areas. Overall, your treatment will be pleasant and comfortable.

How Many Times Do I Need to Get Treatment to See Results?

We recommend a series of around six sessions to start. The recommendation could be slightly more or less for you depending on the current condition of your skin. Unlike some treatments, which require a few weeks in between each session, you can schedule your appointments about one week apart. The reason for this is that the radio frequency is extremely gentle, so your skin does not need time to recover afterward.

How Long Do the Results Last?

After your initial series, you could enjoy the results for up to several years: it all depends on your unique skin. Many people continue getting this treatment at less frequent intervals. Doing so can help your skin retain its collagen levels to the greatest extent possible.

Most skincare experts recommend you get one professional facial treatment every month and one skin tightening treatment every 8-10 weeks to supplement your at-home regimen and any products you use regularly. This treatment is a good option for people who want to take this approach.

What Do I Need to Do to Get Ready?

There is nothing really special that you need to do to prepare for this treatment. If you have any specific concerns about the health of your skin, just let us know in advance.

How Old Should I Be to Start This Treatment?

There is no standard age for starting this treatment. It is used to treat an impressive range of ages. Forma patients include people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s+. Younger people love how it keeps their skin smooth, while people with more advanced concerns love the improvement it offers. So, when should you begin? Whenever you feel you are ready for professional care that will significantly improve the texture and tone of your skin.

Is It Safe?

One of the reasons many patients choose this treatment is because it is so safe and gentle. It is FDA approved and used regularly by thousands. While some treatments are suitable for certain skin types but not others, this method works for all. One of the best safety features is the auto-regulation element that makes sure that the device produces an appropriate level of heat throughout the session.

It Makes a Noticeable Difference

This treatment will make a true, visual impact on your appearance. It will noticeably tighten, tone, and smooth your skin. Finally, you can have glowing results that you will actually see.

You can use it to address specific issues, such as wrinkles, stretch marks, or areas of loose skin, however, you will also enjoy a general boost in your skin’s brightness and overall texture.
