Forma RF skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure which works to boost collagen production.
The result of the procedure is tightened skin on the face and the neck, particularly on the jawbone and cheekbones.
Forma RF skin tightening is part of the BodyTite platform. The procedure involves using a handheld device which emits controlled RF energy, which heats the skin.
This procedure is considered a less invasive alternative to procedures such as Fractora RF Microneedling. Unlike other facial rejuvenation procedures such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, Forma RF skin tightening does not involve the use of any substances.
You will be a suitable candidate if you are unhappy with the appearance of the skin on your face and neck.
It is suitable for those who are looking for a non-invasive procedure which will help to improve sagging skin, texture irregularities, skin tone and lack of definition.
This is a suitable procedure for all skin types.
You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Before undergoing any treatment, you will meet with the surgeon to have a consultation. They will be able to assess you and help decide whether this is the best procedure for you.
Forma RF skin tightening involves using radiofrequency energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production.
A handheld device is used to gently massage the face and neck. This device will emit radiofrequency energy, which will feel like a warm, relaxing massage.
While you will not feel or look as if you have been burnt, this procedure will cause the skin to react as if it is healing from a burn. This causes the skin to boost collagen and elastin production over the following few weeks.
This procedure causes the skin to increase volume while also tightening, improving the appearance of any loose, saggy skin.
The treatment will take around one hour to complete.
Following the treatment, you may notice your skin will appear slightly more red. Those who have fairer skin may notice they appear redder.
For best results, we recommend undertaking eight treatments. These can be done at weekly intervals.
You will be able to notice immediate tightening and lifting of the skin. Final results will take time to be noticeable as the collagen and elastin continue to be produced. It may take up to four months after the final treatment for final results to be visible.
You may wish to repeat treatments every three months.
Forma RF Skin Tightening is a non-surgical procedure which uses RF energy to boost collagen and elastin production. This will leave you with tighter, rejuvenated skin.
Forma RF will leave you with tightened skin. Loose skin will appear lifted, which will give you a more youthful appearance.
You will be a suitable candidate if you have loose skin on the face and neck which you are unhappy with and are wishing to tighten. If you are not ready to undergo a surgical procedure such as a facelift, you may wish to consider Forma RF instead.
Forma RF can be used on all skin types.
Those who have darker complexions may experience a higher level of discomfort during treatment.
You will not need any anaesthetic before the procedure.
The procedure will involve the application of heat, however, this will not feel painful, and will instead feel like a relaxing warm massage.
Following treatment, you will notice your skin will appear red and you may have mild swelling. These symptoms will quickly fade.
You will be able to notice tightening and lifting immediately. Final results may be visible after four months.
You will be able to apply makeup immediately after the procedure.
You will need a series of eight treatments. These treatments can take place at one-week intervals.
A variation of Forma RF can be used to perform this procedure on other areas of the body. This version is called Forma Plus. Forma Plus can be performed on the arms, upper abdomen, upper chest, back and the area around the knees.
