Forma in Chesterton is a non-surgical skin treatment that makes use of radiofrequency to target deep within the layers of the skin in order to enhance the skin’s elasticity and build collagen.

Wrinkles and other signs of aging on the face can be diminished with a Forma treatment. The neck can also be effectively rejuvenated with this treatment option. This therapy is a great choice for people who want to improve their appearance but don’t want to go through the hassle of surgery or the recovery time that follows.

how does forma work?

How Does Forma Work?

Forma uses radiofrequency energy waves at very high intensities. The deep dermal layers of the skin are heated by the energy, which triggers the body to produce more collagen, a natural firming agent.

Forma works quickly to stimulate your skin’s natural tightening capabilities at a rate of one million pulses per second. While this occurs, the technology maintains carefully controlled temperatures to ensure your safety.

is forma right for me?

Is Forma Right for Me?

A good candidate for Forma would be someone who wants tighter skin but doesn’t yet need a surgical lift. Patients who don’t want to deal with a long recovery process will appreciate the advantages of a Forma treatment plan. Everyone can use Forma, as it is safe for all skin types and offers a non-invasive method for correcting uneven skin tone and texture.

what to expect during the procedure

What to Expect During the Procedure

Forma is performed in a simple and stress-free office visit. Its duration depends on the extent of the patient’s treatment. Patients can unwind while a conductive gel is applied to their skin.

Next, the precisely shaped Forma handpiece sends radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, where it causes collagen to contract and new collagen to be produced. Many patients compare it to getting a heated massage, and the technique can be performed without anesthetic. Patients can go home after finishing treatment.

what areas can be treated with forma?

What Areas Can Be Treated with Forma?

Forma is suitable for use on the face. The following areas of the face are frequently treated: crow’s feet, the forehead, upper and lower eyelids, the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, and jowls. The neck may also be treated. 

how many sessions are required for forma treatment?

How Many Sessions Are Required for Forma Treatment?

We typically advise a course of eight treatments, each one week apart, for the majority of our patients. Optimal stimulation of collagen production in your body is ensured, and the targeted areas are thoroughly treated.

People who only have mild skin laxity may be able to be treated in fewer sessions, with longer gaps in between each Forma treatment. A pre-evaluation needs to be done before scheduling can begin.

what to expect after the procedure

What to Expect After the Procedure

It’s normal for the skin to look red and flushed immediately following a Forma treatment, but the redness should fade away by the next day. There is no recovery time required after the procedure. Patients can go back to their regular routines right after their session, because treatment requires no downtime.

Full results typically appear after a series of three to six Forma treatments, but patients may start to see improvements as early as two weeks after the first treatment. Age lines and wrinkles will be less visible, skin tone will be more even, and elasticity will be improved as a result of the treatment.
