What Is Forma Skin Tightening Its Benefits and How It Works 

You probably agree that the Kardashians are known all over the world for their beauty. So, it makes sense that people were interested when one of the reality stars got a Forma facial, also known as a “nonsurgical facelift” by experts.

Today, Encore MedSpa will discuss how Forma skin tightening works and what benefit it can give you to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Check out this blog post for more details!

Forma at Encore MedSpa

Forma is the first thermal skin treatment that doesn’t hurt and has no down time. Forma uses RF power that flows evenly between the electrodes to give a warm feeling and then make the muscles contract. 

This “lunchtime” treatment is quick and works well. It makes your skin tighter and makes you look younger. Forma will also make your skin more flexible, making your wrinkles less noticeable.

How it Functions

Form is a Radiofrequency Treatment that tightens the skin. A hand-held wand gently heats the dermal layer of the skin. As the skin warms up, the body acts as if the treated areas were slightly hurt, which in turn produces collagen to help the area heal. 

The result is skin that is tighter and smoother. The process does not hurt and is not invasive. You can get treatment for all parts of your face and body, including

  • Eyespots
  • Smile lines
  • Neck
  • Nose-to-mouth creases
  • Jowls
  • Forehead 
  • Arms
  • Abdomen

Forma can treat any area where skin tightening would be helpful. But people often ask, “Will it hurt?” as their first question about skin tightening treatments for the face and body.

The answer is Forma skin tightening is not only painless, but many people find it to be relaxing and comfortable. Patients often say that getting a Forma treatment feels like getting a warm stone massage on their face. 

Besides, the Forma wand’s heat settings can be changed by hand so you can use a lower location on sensitive areas like around the eyes.

How Safe is Forma?

Forma is safe to use on all skin types and has been approved by the FDA. With Forma technology, we can ensure that all treatment areas have the right amount of heat. As with most heat producing devices, there is always the risk of getting a superficial burn, but this is not very common. At our med spa, skin tightening and other procedures are only done by medical providers who are trained and licensed to do so.

How Painful is Forma?

Even though the Forma wand heats up to about 109 degrees, the procedure isn’t considered painful. This treatment does not require numbing cream or anesthesia. Many people say it feels like having hot stones rubbed on your face. The heat settings are set by hand, so around the eyes, where the skin is more sensitive, the heat is turned down to avoid pain.

What to Expect from the Forma Skin Tightening Treatment

During your medical pre-evaluation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and the results you want in order to determine if the Forma skin tightening procedure is right for you. How many sessions you need to get the best results will depend on the area being treated and how loose your skin is.

Fewer sessions are required in places with mild laxity. Sessions are usually scheduled once a week for six weeks. You can finish each session in less than an hour. You will notice the effects immediately and with each treatment your skin will get tighter and look younger. You can expect your skin to become firmer and more flexible and lines and wrinkles to soften. Even after you finish your treatment plan, your skin may continue to improve for a few months.

Skin tightening from Forma is thought to have long-lasting effects, but it is not permanent. Skin tightening is not surgery; it is a maintenance program. If you combine Forma treatments with other services like facials, injectables, and other laser treatments, you will have better results.

How Forma Benefits You

Forma has a lot to offer people who want their skin to look smoother and younger. Some of the reasons why Forma technology is a good choice are:

  • Immediate, noticeable improvements
  • The look is natural but more youthful
  • Non-invasive
  • No down time
  • Improves stretch marks, sagging skin, scars, and wrinkles
  • Made to fit any part of the body
  • All skin types can use it, and it works well
  • Helps build collagen

So, if you want to improve how your skin looks and feels but aren’t ready for surgery, Forma skin tightening may be the answer.

Am I The Best Fit for Forma?

Skin tightening treatment is suitable for almost everyone who wants it. We do this and other procedures to help people in their 20s and older feel younger. Forma can be used to treat both men and women.

The nurse will conduct a thorough health history to determine if you are a good candidate for Forma. Most people that are looking for natural results and want a non-invasive treatment are good candidates since this treatment is very low risk.

Forma Treatment Cost

A single session with an experienced aesthetic nurse will cost approximately $600. Many practices offer package discounts.

How Long Does the Effects of Forma Last?

The effects of just one session will last for a few weeks. Although you will notice results after one treatment, a series of 6-8 treatments is needed for longer lasting results. After a series of sessions and maintenance 1-2 times per year, results can last longer.

Is Forma Best for Now?

Skin tightening treatments such as Forma are a great way to get the beautiful skin you want without invasive surgery, downtime or or undergoing painful procedures. With Forma skin tightening, you can diminish the most severe signs of aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and even scars, no matter where they are on your body. It’s safe, doesn’t hurt, and is FDA approved.
