PLUS is recommended for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to address targeted areas that require contraction. Plus can be used to reduce texture irregularities in lax skin to provide a lifted appearance.
Plus is a non-invasive sub-dermal treatment for collagen remodeling and tightening. It was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses RF energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under- or over-treated. This ensures maximum safety and consistent results. This technology is FDA-approved. Unlike other lasers and machines, because Forma has no lights or laser components, this treatment can be done on any skin type. Patients can just relax during the treatment feeling only a warm heat and movement of the treatment head. The subdermal heating allows your skin’s collagen to be increased and remodeled into a more youthful functioning layer.
As we age, collagen layers become smashed (think of an older mattress), thus creating wrinkles and lines. The RF energy in the Forma system allows the collagen strands to remold into tighter lines, thus improving lines, wrinkles, and texture. Forma treatments are done as a series, usually with one session a week, with a total of 6-8 treatments performed (depending upon whether the face or body is being treated). A maintenance program is suggested after the initial treatments are completed to help maintain your long-term res
How many sessions will I need?
Collagen production and skin remodelling is an ongoing process, Forma treatments are vital to be performed with sessions. Depending on the target area, the extent of our problem and the desired results, there might be a need of 6-8 treatments in total. As the collagen degradation is inevitable by nature, it is good to follow a maintenance program after the initial sessions in order to preserve our long-term results.
What is the process?
Forma can be used on multiple areas of the body and face. For the face and neck, each treatment does not exceed 45 minutes, while the body sessions last about 30-60 minutes. The medical aesthetician applies an ultrasound gel to the target areas and glides the Forma head in small, intense movements over those areas until the proper temperature is reached. During the treatment, there is no pain. We can relax and feel just a warm heat, as the treatment head moves all over the treated area. Just like having a hot stone massage. Forma treatments can also be combined with additional therapies.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime. Right after the treatment, the skin may be slightly flushed in the treated area that goes away within a few hours, and we can return to our everyday activities immediately after the session.
What results should I expect?
There is an ongoing improvement in the appearance and elasticity of the skin with each visit. Over time there is a remarkable reduction in the folds and wrinkles while sagging skin appears more toned and lifted, offering a more contoured, smooth look.
