Forma in Tampa is a non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate down to the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates new collagen production, improving the skin’s suppleness.

Forma helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other facial and body aging indicators. It effectively corrects uneven skin tone and texture. This treatment is also ideal for those who want to improve their body’s contours but don’t want to undergo surgery or deal with a long recovery process.

How Does Forma Work?

The radiofrequency energy used by Forma to tighten the skin is of extremely high intensity. Because the RF energy waves heat the deep dermal layers of the skin, the body’s natural firming agent, collagen, is made in greater amounts.

With Forma, you can safely stimulate your skin’s natural tightening capabilities at a rate of one million pulses per second without worrying about the temperature.

What Specific Areas Can Forma Treat?

Forma can be used anywhere on the body, including the face. Crow’s feet, the forehead, the upper and lower eyelids, the nasolabial folds, smile lines, and jowls are commonly targeted areas. The neck is another area that may be addressed.

On the body, common treatment sites include the abdomen, the upper arms (to treat “bat wings”), and any other areas that require toning.

Who Are Good Candidates for Forma Treatment?

Because Forma is not invasive, nearly anyone is suitable for this treatment. Forma is an excellent option for somebody who is interested in effective skin tightening but isn’t quite ready for a surgical lift. Patients who want to avoid long periods of post-treatment downtime may find Forma especially appealing.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Forma necessitates only a single visit to our office, and the treatment session is quick and easy. First, conductive gel is applied to the patient’s skin.

The Forma handpiece is then used to deliver radiofrequency energy deep within the skin, where it stimulates collagen contraction and formation of new collagen. Patients often report that it feels like they are getting a warm massage, and it does not require any kind of numbing medicine.

How Many Forma Treatment Sessions Do I Need?

For most of our patients, we recommend a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 1 week apart for optimal results. The exact number of treatments will depend on factors like the degree of skin laxity and the patient’s goals.

What to Expect After the Procedure

After a Forma treatment, you will be discharged and allowed to return home. It is typical for the skin to appear flushed; however, this redness should subside by the next day. There is zero downtime associated with the treatment. Because the procedure is painless and involves no recovery time, patients can get right back to their daily lives after treatment.

Most patients report seeing changes 2 weeks after the first treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles will be less noticeable, skin tone will be more even, and the skin will be much tighter.
