Forma & Plus
Forma™ and Plus™ unprecedented technology delivers a skin tightening and elasticity improvement that no other technology can match.
This is a radiofrequency (RF) system that gives off a deep, warm heat that stimulates new collagen production and provides optimal skin contraction in the deepest layers of your skin.
Forma is the only skin tightening system, through its proprietary A.C.E. technology, that can regulate temperature precisely and maintain the most optimal temperature for skin contraction with built in feedback controls and sensors, enabling the most effective skin tightening possible. Unlike other skin tightening procedures, Forma technology is designed with built-in safe guards that allow precise thermal temperatures for optimal skin contraction without the risk of overheating or cutaneous burns.
Forma is safe and convenient in that there is no downtime, it is suitable for all skin types, even dark ethnic skin, and it is virtually painless. It feels like a hot stone massage.
Q What conditions are benefited from this procedure?
- Loose skin tightening
- Contraction of sagging skin
- Wrinkle and line reduction
- Firming of skin texture
- Skin rejuvenation
Q What areas can be treated?
Almost anywhere you have laxity!
Forma targets wrinkling and sagging areas of the face, particularly on the forehead, cheeks (smile lines),crows feet, under-eye area, jaw line, and neck
Plus can be used on larger areas of the body that may need contraction and tightening. Most common areas of treatment include the abdomen, arms (bat wings), inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, back fat, and knees.
Q How does Forma and Plus compare to other skin tightening technologies?
Forma and Plus differ from other radiofrequency technologies such as Thermage and Fraxel in that Forma is constantly measuring skin temperature and automatically adjusting energy levels to maintain the optimum temperature for skin contraction. This ultimately allows for a much greater degree of skin tightening, comfort, and overall patient safety. Dr, Rose also believes that Forma provides a more effective, predictable result and a much more comfortable experience than Ultherapy, which Dr. Rose used to offer, but has since discontinued us in favor of Forma.
Q How long do treatments and the program take?
It is recommended that weekly sessions be performed over a six to eight-week period for best results, although some patients may require fewer sessions. The length of each treatment depends upon the number and size of treatment areas Treatment time generally runs 30 to 45 minutes per session. Please expect to be in the office for approximately one hour.
Forma and Plus also works well in combination with other treatments. Ask about treatment combinations that can achieve remarkable comprehensive results.
