Forma skin treatment is a non-surgical fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment. The devices aims to reduce wrinkles and fine lines to slow the effects of aging and restore skin to its youthful appearance.
Forma works by utilizing radio frequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin. This helps to revitalize collage to improve skin complexion and texture.
The device can be used on any skin areas that could use benefit. Typically, the face is the primary treatment site, specifically the upper and lower eyelids, smile lines, the forehead, cheeks, and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment, including the decolletege, hands, and back. Results may vary.
Results from the treatment can be noticed immediately, but it will be 1-2 weeks before full results resolve. Following this, slight improvements may continue up to three months after the final treatment.
Downtime associated with the procedure is minimal. To offset mild irritation or reddened skin, makeup can be used 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week, of which both will then dissipate.
A Forma treatment costs $150. During your consultation, Dr. Whitfield and his staff will be able to give you an accurate estimate of the number of necessary treatments.
