Forma Non-Surgical Face Lift For Younger Looking Skin
Forma is a skin remodeling and “tightening” treatment is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals who want a younger looking appearance. Forma technology helps remodel and improve the appearance of your skin without surgery or downtime!
Forma Facial is the new non-invasive "Face Lift"
Forma is a non-surgical treatment that uses heat and radiofrequency to remodel collagen. It is the first, and only, thermal skin tightening device that stimulates collagen while also improving skin texture. Each treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour and is customized to your specific concerns.
The Forma skin procedure helps to make your skin look visibly brighter, your jaw more defined, and an overall lifted and tighter look. This treatment is a good option for everyone, including younger patients looking to prevent wrinkles.
Forma can be used on both the face and small areas of the body. The most common areas are the face and neck.
Additionally, there is no downtime to receiving this treatment. Each treatment can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and is customized to your specific concerns.
Though the wand does heat up to about 109 degrees, the procedure is still considered “pain-free.” The heat settings are manually controlled, so the temperature can be adjusted for sensitive skin areas, such as around the eyes. It has been compared to getting a hot stone massage on your face.
Following your treatment, you can expect your skin to be red due to the heat exposure, but it will subside within an hour. Your skin will also feel tighter and you may experience mild swelling.
You may begin to see results directly after your first treatment depending on the area treated. Results will improve over time as your skin elasticity strengthens and as more collagen production takes place.
The cost of your Forma treatment can range between $500 to $1000 depending on how many areas need treatment. It is important to keep in mind that the number of treatments usually is between 6-8 treatments for the maximum benefit. We customize each treatment plan to each individual patient. At Chicago Aesthetics Med Spa, have a variety of different treatments available that can be combined to give our patients the best results.
To prepare for your treatment, you should avoid skin irritation such as direct sun exposure, sunbathing, or tanning because you will feel increased heat sensation. Additionally, you should:
- Stop the use of irritant topical products 2-3 days before your treatment. This includes retinol and tretinoin.
- Arrive to your appointment with clean skin (no makeup, lotions, perfume, jewelry or other skin products on the area being treated).
- Be aware that if you have a pacemaker or any metal in your body near the treatment area, you are not a candidate for this treatment.
