Find out if the celeb-obsessed, “beauty-must-of-the-moment” delivers a permanent fix or just a preventative measure for your most pressing skin woes.
With more and more women and men opting to forgo the knife – and needle – for more noninvasive, revolutionary cosmetic procedures that address common complexion concerns, such as wrinkling, laxity/loss of firmness, hyperpigmentation, acne, rough texture, and more, the demand for the in-office, face fix known as Forma continues to make waves in the industry.
But, does this trendy, Tinseltown-touted treatment that harnesses the power of radiofrequency to lift, firm, sculpt, and contour the complexion to (near) perfection offer Fountain of Youth-like longevity?
Fast Facts About the Cosmetic Craze Heating Up the Industry
Unlike traditional, more invasive, plastic surgery procedures, like facelift and blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), game-changing Forma facial treatments are completely nonsurgical, and therefore, not permanent like their surgical counterparts. Forma uses advanced, radiofrequency energy synergized with intense heat to boost elasticity and promote collagen in the deepest layers of the skin via tissue stimulation.
This innovative, restorative facial procedure provides a comprehensive, preventative approach that can be uniquely customized to address the complexion (and body) concerns of every individual with long-lasting, natural-looking results. Unfortunately, results from Forma facial treatments aren’t forever and will eventually fade, prompting regularly-scheduled maintenance and touch-up treatments to attain a youthful aesthetic.
Forma is an FDA-approved, cutting-edge alternative that can effectively prolong the need for more invasive, cosmetic procedures in the future by safely providing visible improvements after each session until maximum results are achieved. Once desired results are reached, Forma skin-tightening treatments can be scheduled less often and much further apart, sometimes with 2-4 years before a single session is needed again, though each patient is different.
Like any anti-aging plan, there is no one-size-fits-all rule and Forma is a maintenance program offering cumulative, anti-aging effects. When combined with a rigorous skincare regimen and other popular, in-office procedures, Forma can deliver jaw-dropping benefits without the scary side effects of traditional and drastic surgeries.
Forma’s powerful, proven results have patients reporting visible improvements after just a single session, though these results usually last only a few weeks, hence why multiple sessions are recommended to enjoy the most desired, beautiful results.
How Many Forma Treatments Should I Expect to Undergo?
Most patients who seek the skin-tightening of Forma require at least five sessions before they will start to see significant, major enhancements to their complexion’s appearance. First-time Forma patients usually book their initial treatments 2-3 days apart.
If patients are combining injectables, such as Botox® and dermal fillers, and/or other minimally-invasive procedures to their anti-aging plan, it’s recommended they be performed either one week BEFORE or one week AFTER their Forma treatment to avoid any unwanted irritation, bruising, redness, or tenderness.
Benefits of Forma Skin-tightening Treatments
One of the most noteworthy advantages of Forma is its singular ability to stimulate youthful, complexion-plumping collagen production long after the patient has left the office chair.
So, while you may have reached your final Forma session for a few years, your skin is continuing to pump out skin-supporting collagen to keep your rejuvenated effects in full force and your face glowing and gorgeous!
Here are just some of the other beauty benefits of Forma that have A-listers lining up in droves:
- Minimally-invasive with little to zero recovery (some patients may experience temporary redness at the application site post-treatment)
- Tightening, firming, lifting, sculpting, contouring of the skin – head to toe
- Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Smoothing of texture
- Customized RF penetration levels prevent hyperpigmentation of the skin during application and foolproof efficacy and safety
