Forma+ – The Non-Surgical Body Skin Tightening Solution
Collagen and elastin are the two proteins that make our skin firm and toned. Once we reach the milestone of age 30, our body’s production of these proteins slows down. The skin begins to lose its elasticity and lacks fullness. The result is loose and sagging skin. While initially, this can be most obvious in the face, it also appears elsewhere. Sagging skin on any area of the body can make an individual self-conscious about their appearance and leave them searching for a body skin tightening solution.
Those who don’t want to have surgery often end up wearing clothing styles that cover or camouflage those areas. Sound familiar? If so, it’s time to consider Forma+. This non-surgical skin tightening treatment can help tighten loose skin, reduce sagging and let you leave those leave that camouflaging wardrobe behind.
How does Forma+ Work?
The secret ingredient behind Forma+ body skin tightening is radio frequency technology. The radio frequency energy creates heat which penetrates deep below the surface layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This causes the tissue to contract and tighten.
The Forma+ body skin tightening treatment also sets off a process known as fibroplasia during which new fibrous tissue is formed. This process along with collagen stimulation produces short, more taut collagen fibers. This reduces and in some cases even eliminates wrinkled, sagging skin. The result is a more youthful appearance without surgery or any damage to the body’s collagen-producing molecules. Because there are no laser components in the Forma+ device, the treatment can be used on any skin type.
Forma+ can treat various parts of the body and is typically used on areas where the skin has become lax from normal aging or weight loss/gain. Some of the most popular treatment areas are the arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks and both the front and back of the thighs.
What to Expect
The Forma+ applicator is equipped with electrodes that deliver radio frequency to the treatment area. Before the treatment begins, a cooling gel is applied to the targeted area. The applicator is then moved along the area in a massage-like motion. You will experience warmth during the treatment, similar to a hot stone massage.
The Forma+ body skin tightening treatment is virtually painless with no downtime. Some patients may experience a slight redness in the treated area which dissipates within a few hours. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
Treatments and Results
Treatment time can vary from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being treated. The condition of each patient’s skin is different. Typically, eight treatment sessions are normally sufficient to see results. For those with more serious laxity, additional treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result. Treatments should be administered a week apart.
Forma+ body skin tightening treatments aren’t a permanent solution. Improvement will be evident after each treatment. Once the desired results are achieved, your provider will determine how often you should receive treatments to maintain those results.
