Skin Tightening – Skin tightening is a comfortable, rejuvenating treatment that tightens lax skin, making it taut and supple again. Skin tightening is done in a short appointment in our office which targets and treats collagen. Nicknamed by some the “lunchtime lift,” the treatment has no downtime at all, just a slight flushed pinkness that fades rapidly. The treatment feels wonderful, as it massages skin and delivers penetrating energy to the collagen layer. This causes collagen to regenerate at skin’s source. With time, skin gets better and better after treatment.
Collagen is a building block of skin that we lose naturally as we age, or that is reduced in effectiveness by weight gain or stretching of the skin. With skin tightening and collagen improvement, the hydration of skin is increased, and your skin tone, color and smoothness are greatly enhanced. The procedure is very helpful in reducing the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, on the face, eyes, neck, under the eye, jowls, brow lines, abdomen, and buttocks. It restores suppleness and vibrance to skin that is lax or tired-looking. The skin is left toned and tightened and collagen highly improved.

Near Infrared Skin Tightening
Our laser skin tightening treatment is similar to the treatments Thermage and Ulthera, at a fraction of the cost of those treatments.
Forma is used to provide flawless skin following fat removal. Radio frequency technology is administered to contract deep below the superficial layer of the skin. This non surgical skin tightening technique promotes collagen production and increases skin elasticity.
Forma was established through clinical-based studies, which proved successful with the technology known as A.C.E. – short for Acquire, Control, Extend. It furthermore guarantees a consistent outcome.
Will Forma Work For You?
Forma is versatile for a range of skin types, and is beneficial for men and women who would like a uniform skin tone and texture. Additional benefits for Forma include even skin, with less wrinkles.
Where Is Forma Applicable?
Many individuals are concerned with wrinkles and other skin imperfections on the face. The good news is that Forma can be applied to both the face and other areas of the body. It’s popularly used along the upper and lower face to treat jowls, wrinkles under the eyes, and also on the neck. Other common areas for Forma are the abs and arms.
Does Forma Hurt?
Forma is a virtually painless, non-invasive and nonsurgical skin tightening technique. The procedure is straightforward and based on the A.C.E. technology described earlier. In this technique, radio frequency is directed deeply deep below the superficial layer of the skin. Some patients may however experience slight redness within a few minutes following the technique – and this will diminish after a couple of hours.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The most common recommendation is one session each week, for one and a half months (or six weeks). Clients with sensitive skin may require more time between each session. Dr. Wright will complete a medical evaluation to determine how many treatments are needed.
Is Forma Safe With Other Cosmetic Procedures?
Absolutely. Forma is commonly used with other processes like laser technology, microdermabrasion and other facials, as well as fillers. Dr. Wright will analyze each patient’s skin to determine safety and effectiveness when combining treatments.
What is FracTotal Facial?
