Improve the skin’s overall appearance with smoother skin and a more radiant glow
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.
Forma is an essentially 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 postprocedure, which subsides within a few hours.
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.
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a medical pre-evaluation.
Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach feels smoother and more defined with less wrinkles.

Under no circumstances should you have further permanent cosmetic work undertaken during the 4-week period.
