There are a variety of internal and external factors that can lead to the development of sagging, loose, or damaged skin that looks less than its youthful best. Weight fluctuations, sun exposure, childbirth, and genetics are all to blame when it comes to those fine lines and wrinkles that suddenly appear where there were none before. Upon noticing these changes, many people will run to the store in pursuit of topical solutions that will diminish the appearance. Creams, lotions, and serums may provide a temporary result, but in the long run these minimal effects won’t be permanent and more successful results can be achieved through cosmetic treatment.
While there are many options available when it comes to skin care and improvement, Forma is an innovative solution on the market that provides a highly efficient and successful approach to reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin across the body. Forma comes with the added benefit of being a non-invasive procedure that can be carried out quickly and relatively painlessly in the comfort of an attending physician’s office without any real downtime required.
How Forma Works
Forma was developed using the concept of radiofrequency technology combined with precision heat. Together, these two features are used to penetrate even the deepest layers of skin using a handheld device which stimulates new collagen growth in targeted areas that have experienced decreased levels of elastin. At most, patients report feeling a warming sensation at the treatment site that tends to disappear within a few hours following the procedure. While Forma is a popular choice amongst patients looking to treat problem areas such as jowls, lines around the mouth and eyes, knees, upper arms, the neck, and abdomen, it’s a versatile cosmetic procedure that can ultimately be used anywhere loose skin can be found. Many patients love the fact that in addition to tightened skin, Forma leaves them with a more even skin tone in the treatment area.
The Many Benefits of Forma Skin Tightening
Wanting one’s exterior to match the youthfulness felt inside is a common desire and one that’s closely linked to self-esteem. Fortunately, those who choose Forma as a solution for skin tightening will see a long list of benefits once treatment is complete. While Forma is known for providing successful results when it comes to improving the appearance of wrinkles, tightening skin and restoring youthful features, it’s also an FDA approved treatment method that’s extremely comfortable. Minimal side effects and recovery time mean patients who elect to use Forma can return to their daily routines immediately feeling refreshed and renewed. Because Forma is non-invasive, patients also enjoy the stress-free peace of mind that comes from avoiding risks associated with general anesthesia or potential infections that can be acquired during a lengthy hospital stay. Overall, Forma is considered an extremely low-risk procedure.
Deciding If Forma is the Right Choice
As a skin tightening technique that utilizes radiofrequency, Forma is considered safe and effective for all skin types meaning it’s a beneficial treatment option for patients of any age and gender. When deciding if Forma treatment is the right solution for you, it’s important to consider how long you’re willing to wait to see results. While most patients notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of their skin after a single treatment, many patients will require a series of sessions in order to achieve the results they are looking for. Many patients will undergo five to eight sessions held a week or two apart to allow the body to heal and achieve optimal results. Collagen levels will rise over time, allowing patients to see more noticeable changes over the course of the treatment series.
Like the vast majority of cosmetic procedures, the cost associated with Forma treatments varies from patient to patient and is highly dependent on the severity of the treatment areas as well as the number of sessions required to achieve the results the patient is looking to obtain. The team at the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center can provide patients with a variety of clinic-based financing options. Compared to more invasive procedures such as traditional facelifts, Forma comes with a significantly lower price tag.
