You can’t say that the Kardashians aren’t the most beautiful person in the world. So, it makes sense that people were interested when the reality star 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 for 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 you and adjusts itself. The 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
Radiofrequency treatment with Forma is the best way to tighten the skin. A hand-held wand gently heats the dermal layer of the skin to make it work.
As the skin warms up, the body acts as if the treated areas were slightly hurt, making collagen to help the area heal.
The result is skin that is tighter and smoother, with better lift and contour that lasts. The process does not hurt and is not invasive. You can get treatment for all parts of your face and body, including
- Smile lines
- Nose-to-mouth creases
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. We can put something on your skin that will hurt less.
How Safe is Forma?
Forma is safe to use on all skin types and has been approved by the FDA. It is a completely painless procedure that doesn’t need any time off to heal.
With Forma technology, we can ensure that all treatment areas have the right amount of heat. At our med spa, skin tightening and other procedures are only done by doctors 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 is especially true if you ask for a numbing gel, which you don’t have to do.
Many people say it feels like having hot stones rubbed on your face. But 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 to see to see if the Forma skin tightening procedure is correct.
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. So, when you take Forma, you can feel the effects immediately. With each treatment, your skin gets tighter and looks younger.
You can expect your skin to become firmer and more flexible and lines and wrinkles to fade. Even after you finish your treatment plan, your skin may improve for a few months.
Skin tightening is thought to have long-lasting effects, but they are not permanent. Skin tightening is not surgery; it is a maintenance program.
You can combine forma treatments with other services like facials, injectables, and other laser treatments.
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 younger.
- No free time
- Stretch marks, sagging skin, scars, and wrinkles are all dealt with.
- Made to fit any part of the body
- All skin types can use it, and it works well.
- Long-lasting results
So, if you want to improve how your skin looks and feels but aren’t a good candidate 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.
Before we schedule a procedure for a patient, we check their health. You are a good candidate for Forma if you want to tighten your skin, and there are no reasons why you shouldn’t.
Forma Treatment Cost
A single session with an experienced esthetician will cost you $600, but you should see results immediately. Still, this will differ from every clinic to another.
How Long Does the Effects of Forma Last?
The effects of just one session will last for a few weeks. But it’s best to do more than one session, depending on your goal. That’s because, with a series of sessions and maintenance once a year, results can last up to 4 years.
Is Forma Best for Now?
Skin tightening treatment is a great way to get the beautiful skin you want without undergoing surgery, waiting a long time to heal, or doing something that could hurt you.
With Forma skin tightening, you can eliminate 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 works with the FDA.
