Many of us suffer from sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, which is a common occurrence due to aging, childbirth, weight fluctuations, or sun exposure. There are many skin care products that those suffering from saggy skin and wrinkles can seek out to try to improve the look of their skin; however, many of these products have minimal effects, even if used over a long period of time. A new, non-invasive skin procedure in St Louis, Forma, is becoming one of the most popular solutions for treating sagging, wrinkled skin wherever it may appear on the body. This procedure can be done quickly and painlessly without requiring any downtime.

Forma uses radiofrequency technology which, combined with heat, penetrates to the deepest layers of skin and helps to stimulate new collagen growth in areas that are lacking elasticity and even skin tone. Anywhere on the body where skin is in need of a little refining can benefit from this procedure. Popular areas for applying the Forma technique include sagging knees, jowls, lines around the eyes and mouth due to squinting and smiling or sun exposure, upper arms, abdomen and neck.
Is Forma right for me?
Forma can be beneficial to anyone, older or younger, men and women, who would like to see an improvement in the elasticity of their skin and enjoy a more youthful appearance, and because Forma utilizes radio frequency it is safe and effective for all skin types. Most patients will notice an improvement in the appearance of their skin after only one treatment. Multiple treatments, typically five to eight sessions, spaced one to two weeks apart are suggested to achieve optimal results. Collagen stimulation continues to improve with each successive treatment.
What are the risks associated with Forma?
Forma is considered to be a very low risk noninvasive treatment with absolutely no downtime post procedure.
What can I expect to happen during the procedure?
Our estheticians, who are trained in the Forma technique, will glide the handheld device over the treatment area. The procedure is completely painless; most patients will feel a warming sensation in the treatment area, which is similar to a warm stone massage. Patients return to normal daily activity immediately following the procedure.
How much will Forma cost?
Compared to a facelift or other more invasive procedures, Forma is an affordable option. Of course the overall cost will depend on which areas of the body are treated and this will be discussed in detail with the esthetician at your consultation.
