Forma is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production. Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery offers this and other skin tightening solutions to men and women living in Kerrville, San Antonio and Houston, TX.
What is Forma?
Forma is a non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, stimulating the formation of new collagen and improving the skin’s elasticity. The Forma system has built-in temperature controls, which ensures that patients are treated at a level that is optimal for both results and safety. With two different-sized handpieces, Forma can be used to treat all areas of the face, neck, and body. The Forma skin tightening treatment can be a great solution for any patient who would like to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles without the use of surgery.
How Much Does Forma Cost?
The cost of your Forma treatment can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Forma Treatment Like?
The Forma treatment is a comfortable in-office procedure that requires no anesthetic. During treatment, the Forma handpiece will be placed on the desired treatment area. It will then emit gentle radiofrequency energy, tightening the skin and stimulating collagen production. You may feel a warm or tingling sensation during this process, but it is typically well-tolerated by patients. Once the desired treatment areas are addressed, the treatment will be complete.
What is the Downtime Like After Forma?
After a Forma treatment, there is no downtime necessary. You will be able to return to work, exercise, and other normal activities immediately following your appointment. You may experience minor redness or sensitivity in the skin, but these side effects typically fade within a few hours.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Forma?
The results from Forma may not be visible immediately, since it takes time for the body to produce and implement collagen into the skin. Patients will notice a gradual improvement in their results over the months following treatment, especially as additional treatment sessions are received. We typically recommend weekly sessions for six to eight weeks. After this time, regular maintenance treatments can help you maintain your results.
