How Does FORMA Work To Tighten The Skin?
Are you seeking a non-invasive treatment to change the trajectory of your skin in the long term? Do you want to have your skin lifted, tightened, and rejuvenated without the inconvenience of post-treatment downtime? Then FORMA could be your new favourite treatment of the year!
So, what is FORMA? How does it work, and what is the science behind it? Including what it can treat, who is eligible, and how can it achieve great results? Keep reading for our complete guide to FORMA treatments in Liverpool!
What is FORMA, and how does it work to tighten the skin?
FORMA is a non-invasive facelift/skin tightening procedure where a handpiece is used to apply radio-frequency technology to heat the skin and tissue. The resulting heat energy enters the dermal layer where collagen bonds reside and causes a small ‘micro-injury’ under your skin. In response to this ‘micro-injury’, the skin then produces new collagen bonds, resulting in long-term skin elasticity. As a result, the skin further tightens and smoothes to appear more rejuvenated!
In terms of the treatment itself, we will use a heated wand, gliding it across your face to essentially ‘iron’ the skin and create a smooth, taut complexion. Once the tool is removed, your skin is left looking and feeling much tighter, brighter, and youthful! In addition, it’s minimally invasive and comes with little downtime whatsoever, meaning you can carry on with your day.
The wand has a special thermal temperature sensor built into the device, allowing us to measure your skin temperature in real-time. Not only that, but the radio-frequency delivered is very safe as the wand cuts off automatically when it senses the skin temperature is too high. In addition, clinical evidence has shown that prolonged exposure to temperatures above 40°C is beneficial for skin, meaning the wand is not damaging even with the initial heat you experience.
Despite the FORMA wand being able to reach an incredibly high temperature of 42°C, it is actually a straightforward, safe, and painless process – one which has been likened to getting a hot stone massage on your face! Of course, if you’re someone who has a low pain tolerance, a numbing gel can be provided, but it’s very unlikely that you’ll need it during treatment at all.
What can FORMA treat?
FORMA is all about rejuvenating your skin with minimal invasion and is therefore suitable for almost all skin types. Some people invest in this treatment from as young as 20 years old, employed as a preventative measure to slow down the ageing process to a crawl. That being said, people in their 80s who want their skin tightened without the hassle of undergoing invasive surgeries also seek out this treatment! It is super effective for undoing any sun damage and getting rid of various forms of fine lines, such as crow’s feet, under-eye sallowness, sagging in the neck, creases in the forehead, nasolabial folds, and sagging jowls. In addition, FORMA can also be used on the body too. Its uniformed volumetric heating makes it a suitable treatment for a wide range of body parts, including women’s wellness issues.
All in all, FORMA is versatile and perfect for use on the majority of facial and body skin complaints. We highly recommend you read more about the treatment, but in your initial consultation with a Specialist Doctor at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we can determine your suitability and ensure you’re entirely up to speed.
What are the results?
Like any form of treatment at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we’ll tailor the procedure to your needs right here in Liverpool. The best route to take in your FORMA treatment journey will be discussed in your consultation. The number of treatments you wish to undergo is up to you, but you’ll have to manage your expectations if you only want it done once or even twice. For long-term results, we recommend that you have weekly treatments over the course of six weeks (a minimum of five treatments) so that your collagen bonds can truly repair and regenerate as needed. The results will completely depend on how well you look after your skin by way of a rock-solid skincare regimen and how often you receive our FORMA treatment. On average, those who’ve had a series of sessions and yearly maintenance can expect to see results for up to four years.
The actual treatment itself takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. So, if you are getting this done on a regular basis, it won’t interfere much with your day-to-day life (some celebrities have been known to get this treatment during their lunch break, that’s how simple it really is!). Another incredible thing about FORMA is that you can get it done alongside other treatments such as wrinkle relaxing and dermal fillers. There are so many options, all of which can be discussed with our professional doctors carrying out your treatment.
