As we get older, our skin stops producing as much collagen and elastin, the two proteins that keep our skin firm and plump. This is why our skin begins to sag, dry out, and wrinkle as we age. This is where Forma comes in. Forma is a skin tightening procedure that is commonly referred to as a non-surgical face-lift. It tightens skin, resulting in a smoother, firmer complexion! If you’re interested in Forma, here are some things to know.
Forma is non-surgical, non-invasive, and practically painless
It used to be that surgical facelifts were the best, and really only, way to tighten skin. Thankfully these days Forma offers a non-surgical, and non-invasive option to tighten skin. Forma uses radiofrequency waves to heat the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen fibers.
There is little downtime afterward
A huge downside of surgical skin tightening is that not only does it have more risks and pain, but it also requires healing time. With Forma skin tightening, there is little to no downtime required! There might be some minor redness and tenderness in the treated areas for a few days. Another great thing about Forma is that there are no restrictions before or after the treatments!
It will take a few sessions
Forma skin tightening is an amazing procedure, but it does require a few sessions for the best results. On average, it’s recommended to do 2-6 treatments in a series. Results can be seen immediately, but they will reach their full potential about 2 to 6 months after a treatment series is completed.
It can be used almost anywhere on the body
While Forma skin tightening is often thought of as the non-surgical face-lift, it can be safely used to tighten skin almost anywhere on the body. At AFYA, we offer Forma Plus Skin Tightening, which uses a larger piece to accommodate larger areas of the body. Almost anywhere you have loose skin, we can tighten using Forma!
Forma helps with multiple issues
Forma skin tightening helps with a range of skin laxity issues. Not only will it treat loose skin on the face and body, but it can also be used to treat wrinkles, smile lines, folds around the mouth, jowls, turkey neck, and stretch marks!
