Sagging and loose skin is a normal part of aging. Over time, sun and environmental exposure as well as genetic factors cause the skin to lose it's elasticity and begin to hang or droop. Our collagen and elastin fibers breakdown and our skin's underlying support system begins to fail. Emerging technologies offer us new and improved options that work to tighten our existing elastin fibers while stimulating the production of new collagen. The end result is a refreshed face with improved tone and elasticity.
What is forma and forma plus?
Forma technology is a superior choice for the treatment of wrinkles and skin laxity of the face, neck and chest. Forma stimulates the formation of new collagen while causing the deep layers of your skin to contract. Together these features improve the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting and remarkable results. The radio frequency current flows between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience, without concerns of hot spots or under-treatment. Built-in temperature controls allow for the attainment of clinically proven optimal epidermal temperatures. In addition, Forma has the exclusive capacity for prolonged exposure at therapeutic temperatures, which can be reached quickly and uniformly. This feature allows the clinician to deliver a more effective treatment. Forma Plus delivers the same great treatment benefits as Forma through a handpiece designed to be used anywhere on the body. After Plus treatments your skin will appear more youthful, toned and tight
The Forma technology is based on ACE technology which is comprised of the following steps:
- Acquire: Forma has a temperature sensor built into the hand piece which reads skin surface temperature 1000 times per
second, allowing clinicians to acquire skin temperature in real time.
- Control: Software algorithm allows unprecedented safety of RF delivery. The “cut off temperature" feature reduces RF
energy automatically when the hand piece senses that the required skin temperature has been reached.
- Extend: Clinical evidence suggests prolonged exposure to temperature above 40°C is advantageous for optimal clinical
outcomes. Only InMode's A.C.E. technology allows you to utilize therapeutic temperatures safely and efficiently.
IS FORMA FOR ME?
Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in skin tone, texture and laxity. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined with less wrinkles. It is perfect for busy, active patients who cannot tolerate a lot of downtime.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE AND FEEL?
Forma smooths and tightens skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reversing the effects of aging and sun damage. It is a painless procedure with little to no downtime.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
Typically, sessions are repeated every 1-2 weeks over a 6-8 week period for best results. Individuals with mild skin laxity may be treated with fewer sessions and more weeks in between. Scheduling should be based on your individual needs which will be discussed with you at your consultation. Results will continue to improve for months after treatments as new collagen forms and skin continues to contract.
