As you age, the collagen in your skin that gives it firmness and elasticity is lost. Starting around the age of 30, you begin producing less collagen, and your skin becomes thinner and less firm. One of the best ways to slow the signs of aging, like lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, is to increase collagen production. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer collagen induction and skin tightening with Forma treatment, available at our Washington, DC, metro area clinics.
What is Forma?
Optimas by InMode is a laser energy aesthetic platform that includes the Forma radiofrequency (RF) device. Forma utilizes RF thermal energy that is delivered deep into the targeted skin to stimulate collagen production. This non-invasive, non-painful treatment can be performed in about 30 minutes. No downtime or recovery is needed after the procedure – you can return to work or normal activities after your Forma treatment.
Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment
Forma can create more youthful skin that is firmer with improved tone and texture. The RF energy is delivered to the skin through a wand after a conductive numbing gel is applied. This treatment can be used in multiple areas on the face and neck where there is evidence of wrinkling or sagging skin. Some of the most common areas where Forma skin tightening treatments are performed include:
- Forehead and brow
- Upper and lower eyelids
- Cheeks and jawline
Forma skin tightening can achieve a non-surgical face, neck or eyelid lift by firming the targeted skin. The best results are achieved with a series of sessions held a few weeks apart over a couple of months. Patients often begin to see results within two weeks of their first session, but the final results can take three to four months to achieve.
If you want firmer, more youthful skin on your face or neck, Forma facial treatments may be right for you.
