Forma is a thermal skin rejuvenation treatment. Forma uses radio frequency advancement to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio frequency will stimulate the formation of new collagen and contract the layers of your skin for an improved appearance in the skins surface.
The treatment involves the use of handheld devices such as Forma and Forma Plus that can work on the affected skin tissues with greater precision. It can improve the skin’s texture, tone, and appearance by restoring the firmness of the skin.
The non-invasive Forma Skin Tightening treatment uses radio-frequency or RF energy to trigger the formation of new collagen in the skin. Collagen is an essential component of the skin. It is important for maintaining the elasticity of the skin. It allows the skin to stretch and then, retracts back to its normal state just like an elastic rubber band. And this is the reason we do not develop wrinkles and fine lines at a younger age.
However, as age advances, the body’s ability to produce new collagen reduces. The lower collagen levels prevent the skin from retracting back to its original state causing it to wrinkle. The creases begin to form on the face and other body parts as the skin is stretched each time while talking or other bodily movements without relaxing efficiently. Over a few years, the creases become deeper resulting in the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Radio Frequency can help to manage these issues by addressing the root cause. It stimulates the production of new collagen and thus, restores the ability of the skin to stretch and retract as efficiently as it used to do at a younger age. This is how, Radio Frequency can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help the skin look firm, taut, and younger.
It is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment, which means it can offer instant facelift without the need for any surgical procedure, cuts, incisions or anesthesia.
On the face, Forma can treat sagging skin on the entire face or the lack of definition in certain areas like the nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, Forma Plus can treat the bum, abdomen and arms (bat wings), inner and outer thighs and other areas with loose skin or wrinkles.
When will I see results?
Usually after one session, you will see results. All depending on age and the maturity of the skin, results can last for a year. You will notice continued improvement for months after a full series as new collagen forms and your skin continues to contract.
Who is it for?
It is suitable for men and women who have already entered an older age and want to get rid of the signs of aging. It is also suitable as a preventive therapy for younger people who have not developed any signs of aging but would like to prevent them from forming.
What does it feel like?
Forma is a painless treatment with no downtime because of it’s precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. A lot of our clients say it feels like a warm massage.
Before the treatment, we will apply cool conductive gel to the treatment area. You will feel a warming sensation as the Forma applicator glides across your skin. The heating sensation will gradually increase until it reaches ideal temperature. However, it will feel as if you’re receiving a hot stone massage that is both comfortable and relaxing.
Slight redness in the treatment area is common post-treatment. It may also feel warm to the touch. However, both should subside within a few hours.
How many sessions?
For best results, a series of 6 sessions are usually planned. The sessions are performed once, every 5 – 10 days apart over a period of 5 to 8 weeks. Individuals with mild laxity of the skin usually require fewer sessions of InMode Skin Tightening treatment.
Cost: $225 per session. 7th session is free once all 6 sessions are completed in 6-8 weeks.
Booking: Please call us 204-306-8502 so we can book all 6 sessions for you.
More information about Radio Frequency:
Forma by Inmode is an FDA-approved, non-invasive skincare treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the natural regenerative response of the body to form collagen and counteract the effect of advancing age and gravitational pull on your skin.
InMode system uses Forma and Forma Plus handheld devices that emit controlled radiofrequency energy as the devices are moved over the part of the skin to be treated. The head of the device is moved over the treatment area gently. This leads to the heating of the deep tissues beneath the skin to a predetermined temperature optimum to bring the desired results. The head of the device is moved over the part for a set period of time based on the extent of damage to the skin.
The skin responds to the deep tissue stimulation by increasing the production of new collagen in order to support the repair and healing processes. This action of radiofrequency waves is based on the principles of the body’s natural skin-plumping mechanisms. This means the devices only promote the body’s own physiological processes in order to heal the damaged tissues and restore its youthful firmness.
The heating of the tissues and the subsequences increase in the collagen levels improve the skin’s elasticity and contour making it firmer and tighter.
