What is Forma?
Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep
layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen
and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting improvement of your skin’s appearance.
How does Forma work?
Forma was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses radio-frequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.
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 and texture
irregularities. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined with less wrinkles.
What areas can be treated?
Forma can be used both on the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crows feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, popular treatment areas consist of the arms, knees, abdomen and other areas that may need contraction.
Will it hurt?
Forma is essentially a painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post-procedure, which subsides within a few hours.
How many sessions are required?
An improved skin appearance can be noticed after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regimes depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs. sun damage), and energy settings.
Can Forma be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes, Forma can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables and/or filler. During your consultation with Dr. Bednar he will discuss the best approach for you.
