Often, people experience sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines on parts of their body. This can be a result of age, childbirth, weight loss, or sun damage. Unlike some body contouring issues, this sagging skin cannot be improved through exercise and diet. Also, many people try to improve their sagging skin through skin care products; however, these products have minimal effects.
There are, however, new technologies that offer options for skin that has lost elasticity and collagen. A new procedure called Forma is becoming a popular solution for sagging skin, no matter where it appears on the body.
This non-invasive procedure offers solutions for problem areas such as “bat wing” arms, abdomens that have been stretched due to weight loss or pregnancy, saggy knees, and even wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and jowls.
The Forma procedure uses radio frequency technology in combination with heat to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production to encourage elasticity, and even skin tones.
During the procedure, a trained technician will glide the Forma handheld device around the treatment area. The procedure is painless, with patients experiencing a warming effect that is similar to a warm stone massage.
Face lifts and tummy tucks are satisfactory options for improving the appearance of the skin; however, these procedures do require anesthesia and long recovery times. Forma is a cost-effective procedure that provides similar results in a non-invasive manner. Forma does not require any downtime, allowing patients to return to their normal schedules following the procedure.
Additionally, Forma can be used on more delicate areas of the body including lines around the eyes, lower and upper eyelids, smile lines, the neck, and forehead.
Forma can be beneficial to anyone who would like to obtain an improvement in the elasticity of the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Form is safe and effective for all skin types and the majority of patients will notice an improvement after a single treatment. Multiple treatments, usually five to eight sessions that are spaced one to two weeks apart will let clients achieve optimal results, as collagen production continues to increase with each treatment.
