Forma Skin Tightening
Forma is an innovative, non-surgical procedure from InMode that utilizes radiofrequency energy to gently heat the deeper layer of tissues underneath the skin. This process boosts collagen to lift and tighten skin. Dr. Min S. Ahn and his staff at the Aesthetic Wellness Center are pleased to offer Forma to Boston patients who wish to tone skin and turn back the hands of time without surgery or extensive downtime.
How Forma Works
Forma is the first auto-adjusting, non-surgical thermal skin treatment for deep and uniform tissue stimulation. The radiofrequency energy penetrates the deep layers of the skin to heat the underlying tissues, triggering the body’s collagen regeneration process. Fresh, new collagen results in firmer and tighter skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are also smoothed out for a rejuvenated appearance.
Forma delivers consistently great results by utilizing the“A.C.E.” system:
Acquire – Forma features multiple sensors programmed to read skin temperature 1,000 times per second. This allows our team to constantly monitor skin temperature at all times and make adjustments for optimal effectiveness and comfort.
Control – Forma’s “cut off temperature” feature automatically reduces radiofrequency energy whenever the built-in sensors detect that the desired skin temperature has been reached.
Extend – Forma constantly calibrates itself to ensure the safest and most effective skin temperature range is used for the entire duration of treatment. The Forma system features an application head that delivers precise radiofrequency energy to the targeted areas. This makes Forma a great choice for treating wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Unlike other systems, Forma is safe and effective for all skin types. Forma is virtually painless and can be conveniently completed in a lunchtime appointment.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Forma?
Dr. Ahn and the team at the Aesthetic Wellness Center can use Forma to tighten skin and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on many areas of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, the brow area, around the mouth, and the area below the lower eyelids. We can also use Forma to treat wrinkles, lines and lax skin on the neck.
Is Treatment Painful?
Treatment with Forma is not painful. Patients may feel a slight warm sensation on the skin but this is generally tolerable.
How Long Is Recovery?
There is no downtime with Forma, meaning you will be free to return to work and resume most of your regular activities immediately after your treatment session. Our team will provide you with a detailed list of instructions, including guidelines on sun protection, to follow after treatment.
How Soon Can Results Be Seen?
Results with Forma can be seen almost immediately after treatment and will improve over time as new, fresh collagen is produced. Most patients require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve their desired results. Dr. Ahn and our team can recommend a treatment plan and schedule upon evaluating your aesthetic needs and goals.
