What is Forma Skin Tightening?
Forma is a non-surgical treatment for skin tightening and improved skin laxity that we offer in our Beverly Hills clinic.
Why Do I Need Forma?
Forma Skin Tightening is best suited to treat any area of loose skin. Forma is most suitable for moderate skin tightening due to aging or changes in weight.
What Areas Can I Treat?
Since Forma Skin Tightening is administered by hand, any area from the neck down can be treated. Tummy, knees, underarms, butt, even breasts are all treatable. Our Beverly Hills clinic offers free consultations, book an appointment to find out if you’re a good candidate.
How Does Forma Work?
Forma Skin Tightening offered at our Beverly Hills location uses a combination of clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy, and deep tissue heating. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The deep heat tightens the skin’s tissues and structure, while simultaneously stimulating natural collagen production.
How Safe Is The Treatment?
Forma Skin Tightening is FDA approved and since the treatment is non-surgical there is no need for anesthesia.
Is it Effective?
Forma Skin Tightening has been proven to result in the reduction of fat in multiple peer reviewed clinical studies. Clinical studies show 30% adipocyte (fat cell) apoptosis at a 2.5 cm depth and new collagen synthesis (neocollagenesis) of 13.7%. Research indicates a direct correlation between new collagen synthesis and skin tightening. Individual results may vary and it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle during treatment. In our Beverly Hills clinic, patients receiving treatment considered it successful.
How does it work?
Does It Hurt?
During Forma Skin Tightening treatment you can expect a warming of your skin as the radio-frequency works to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat. The best way to think of how this feels is through two processes: heat and massage. Most users find Forma Skin Tightening comfortable. You may notice some slight redness in the treated area post treatment.
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
On average, 6 to 8 treatments are recommended spaced a week to two weeks apart. Each treatment area takes about 30 minutes to complete at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
What is the Recovery Time?
There is absolutely no recovery time for Forma Skin Tightening. Because most patients find the treatment entirely comfortable and easy to do, it can be fit into your lunch break or right before work at our Beverly Hills location.
Do you have extended hours?
Our Beverly Hills location is open 9am – 5pm Monday through Friday, and offers late night hours for Forma Skin Tightening on Wednesdays and Thursdays to 7pm, as well as Saturdays by appointment.
When Will I See Results?
The skin’s surface will feel smoother and softer instantly. Results for Forma Skin Tightening see gradual improvements in the treatment area following the first few treatments and peak at 6-8 weeks after the final treatment.
