How Does Forma Work?
Forma is a treatment that uses radio-frequency technology to encourage collagen stimulation for fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment was developed based on the A.C.E (acquire, control, extend) technology and uses radio-frequency to target the deeper layers of the skin and encourage collagen production. This tends to give long-lasting anti-aging results without a long and involved recovery period. It is a very targeted treatment, so it aims to deliver precise results. However, results vary from patient to patient.
Who is a Candidate?
Forma is a great treatment for practically anybody that is looking for collagen stimulation for fine lines and wrinkles on any area of the body. The most common treatment areas include the forehead, eyelids, smile lines, jowls, and neck. Patients may also benefit from Forma treatments on their abdomen and arms if they have loose skin. It is suitable for all different skin types and tones, so almost anyone can benefit from the anti-aging effects of Forma.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
The precise, targeted nature of the technology behind Forma means that the whole process is designed to be comfortable and has a very minimal recovery period. You may notice some slight redness on the skin in the treated areas, but this should improve after a few hours.
How Many Sessions are Required?
The majority of patients need weekly sessions spread out over a six-week period. However, your schedule will depend on the nature of your skin issues, and patients that only have mild laxity in the skin may not need as many sessions as those with more severe problems. During a consultation at our office in Dothan, AL, you can learn more about how many treatment sessions are required in your case.
Can Forma Be Used Alongside Other Treatments?
Forma can absolutely be used in conjunction with other treatments for improved results. Forma treatments that encourage collagen stimulation for fine lines and wrinkles tend to work incredibly well on their own, but they can be even better when combined with laser treatments or injections and fillers.
Forma can also be used in conjunction with Fractora Resurfacing and Lumecca Photofacial in a treatment program known as a FracTotal Facial. This is the ultimate facial treatment program which will encourage collagen stimulation for fine lines and wrinkles, deal with uneven skin tone, and manage pigmentation issues.
