What is Forma Plus?
Forma Plus stimulates the formation of new collagen and improves the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting and remarkable skin tightening results.
Plus is a non-invasive sub-dermal heating applicator that stimulates sub-cutaneous tissue. Radio-frequency energy flows uniformly between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience, built-in temperature controls allow for the attainment of clinically proven optimal temperatures without concerns of hot spots or under treatment. Acquire: Forma has a temperature sensor built into the hand piece which reads skin surface temperature 1000 times per second, allowing us to acquire skin temperature in real time.
Indications for Forma Plus
Forma Plus is a cutting edge treatment for those looking to tone and tighten skin on the body without any downtime.
The most commonly treated areas are the thighs (front and / or back), hips, and buttocks. The stomach or waist can also be treated, as can the arms. Most people select 1-2 large areas for body treatments (about the size of an 8×10 paper) to be treated within each 30-60 minute procedure.
Before you begin a Forma series, photos and/or measurements may be taken for later comparison.
During each treatment, our therapists will apply a ultrasound gel to the treatment area and will glide the Forma head over the selected areas in small, concentrated passes until a specific temperature is reached and maintained. Radio frequency will deeply penetrate into the skin, heating it. Each treatment head has a temperature gauge built into it to maintain control and make certain that no areas are under- or over- treated. Forma treatments are essentially painless and have no downtime. Most people describe them like a hot stone massage.
After the treatment
The whole procedure is non-invasive and requires no recovery time.
You can easily have the treatment during your lunch break and return to your daily activities immediately. After a session, you may see slight redness in the treated area, which will lessen within a few hours.
