Features of Forma

Radiofrequency Technology: Forma relies on radiofrequency energy, a safe and effective technology that penetrates the skin’s layers to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These essential proteins contribute to the skin’s firmness, elasticity, and overall youthfulness.

Non-Invasiveness: Unlike surgical procedures, Forma is a non-invasive treatment, meaning it does not require incisions, needles, or anesthesia. This makes Forma a popular choice for individuals seeking skin tightening without the associated downtime and risks of surgery.

Customized Treatment: Forma treatments are tailored to each individual’s unique skin concerns and goals. The procedure can be adapted to target specific areas of the face or body where skin laxity is a concern, allowing for a personalized and comprehensive approach.

Comfortable Sessions: Forma treatments are known for their comfort and ease. Patients typically experience a gentle warming sensation as the radiofrequency energy is delivered to the skin. The procedure is designed to be painless, and most individuals find it relaxing.

Quick Sessions and No Downtime: Forma sessions are relatively quick, typically lasting between 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the treatment area. One of the advantages of Forma is that it requires minimal to no downtime, allowing individuals to resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure.

Gradual and Natural-Looking Results: The results of Forma Skin Tightening are gradual and natural-looking. As collagen production is stimulated over time, patients can expect to see a progressive improvement in skin tone, texture, and firmness. This subtle transformation contributes to a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Skin Tightening Pre-Care Instruction

Preparing for your Forma Skin Tightening treatment is an essential step to ensure optimal results and a positive experience. Here are pre-care instructions to follow before your Forma session:

Consultation: Schedule a consultation with your Forma practitioner before the treatment. This allows for a thorough assessment of your skin, discussion of your goals, and the creation of a personalized treatment plan.

Avoid Sun Exposure: Minimize sun exposure and avoid tanning beds for at least two weeks before your Forma treatment. Sunburned or tan skin can be more sensitive, and it’s essential to reduce the risk of adverse reactions.

Skin Products: Inform your practitioner about any topical products you are using on your skin. They may advise you to discontinue certain products containing ingredients that could increase sensitivity or interfere with the treatment.

Skin Conditions: Notify your practitioner of any skin conditions, infections, or irritations in the treatment area. If you have active skin issues, it may be advisable to postpone the Forma treatment until the skin has healed.

Medications: Inform your practitioner about any medications you are currently taking, including prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as supplements. They will advise you on whether any adjustments need to be made.

Avoid Blood Thinners: Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil, for at least one week before your Forma treatment. This helps minimize the risk of bruising during and after the procedure.

Hydration: Stay well-hydrated in the days leading up to your treatment. Hydrated skin tends to respond better to cosmetic procedures, and it can contribute to a smoother and more comfortable experience.

Comfortable Clothing: Wear comfortable clothing on the day of your treatment, especially if the treatment area is on the body. Loose-fitting clothing can help prevent irritation after the session.

No Makeup: If you are receiving Forma on your face, arrive at the session with a clean face and no makeup. This allows for a more effective treatment and reduces the risk of skin reactions.

Plan Ahead: Plan your schedule accordingly, as Forma treatments typically have minimal to no downtime. However, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and activities that may cause excessive sweating immediately after the session.

Skin Tightening Post-Care Instructions

Proper post-care is crucial to optimize the results of your Forma Skin Tightening treatment and ensure a smooth recovery. Here are post-care instructions to follow after your Forma session:

Gentle Cleansing: For facial treatments, use a gentle cleanser to wash your face for the first 48 hours post-treatment. Avoid harsh or abrasive cleansers that could irritate the treated area.

Moisturize: Apply a hydrating and soothing moisturizer to the treated area. This helps maintain skin hydration and supports the healing process. Choose a product recommended by your practitioner or one specifically designed for post-treatment care.

Sun Protection: Protect your skin from the sun by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. This is crucial for at least two weeks following your Forma treatment, as the skin may be more sensitive to UV radiation.

Avoid Intense Heat: Avoid hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, and activities that involve intense heat for the first 48 hours post-treatment. This helps prevent excess irritation and allows the skin to recover more effectively.

No Strenuous Exercise: Refrain from strenuous exercise and activities that cause excessive sweating for at least 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. Sweating can potentially irritate the treated area.

No Scrubbing or Exfoliation: Avoid scrubbing, exfoliating, or using abrasive skincare products on the treated area for at least one week post-treatment. Let the skin heal naturally without any aggressive interventions.

Stay Hydrated: Continue to stay well-hydrated to support overall skin health and recovery. Drinking an adequate amount of water can contribute to a smoother healing process.

No Alcohol-Based Products: Avoid using skincare products that contain alcohol for the first few days after your Forma treatment. Alcohol can be drying and may irritate the skin.

Be Gentle with the Skin: Be gentle when touching or cleansing the treated area. Avoid rubbing or massaging the skin aggressively to prevent unnecessary irritation.

Follow Up: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your Forma practitioner. They will assess your progress, address any concerns, and provide additional guidance for ongoing skincare.
