Is the procedure painful?
There is no downtime from a Forma™ treatment. Each treatment feels like a warm massage. Maintaining the skin’s temperature at a set point of 41°C – 43°C makes the treatment entirely comfortable and results in a 20% increase in collagen for most patients.
How does the treatment work?
Collagen is a heat sensitive protein. Forma™ slowly heats the collagen in the skin to a sustained temperature of 41°C – 43°C, which is not painful. It uses temperature sensors and feedback controls to keep the temperature of the skin in this precise range. The heat causes the heat-sensitive collagen in the skin to “unwind” and the body responds by making new collagen to repair the skin. The result is a tighter, firmer “non-surgical facelift” appearance.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Your skin will look instantly lifted and hydrated post treatment and possibly slightly flushed pink. There is no downtime associated with the procedure however we do suggest using a post treatment balm for 3 days to ensure no reactions.
When will I notice results?
Results being seen after one treatment of Forma is to be expected however for long term results and true collagen formation 8 weeks post treatment is generally a great guide to go by.
Will I need maintenance treatments?
As healthy human beings, we will continue to age and many patients will elect to have periodic treatments to maintain or improve their appearance a few times a year.
Is Forma a substitute for a face or neck lift?
Forma is a breakthrough therapy, but it can only provide a limited lift. If you have significant laxity of the cheek, jaw border, and neck area and want the most powerful result surgical rejuvenation is the best solution.
How many sessions will I need?
Forma™ is meant to work slowly over time. A series of gentle treatments are needed to build enough collagen to achieve visible skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. Six weekly or bi-weekly treatments are recommended for best results. Maintenance treatments may be recommended in your initial skin consultation.
