Forma RF Face and Body Skin Tightening – Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, and Newport Beach
Are you looking for a solution to smooth and tighten your skin without downtime, anesthesia, or scarring? Forma RF is your ideal treatment. Radiofrequency energy penetrates deeply into the layers of the skin, enhancing its texture by stimulating the formation of new collagen and elastin and restoring youthful elasticity.
Call Allure Anti-Aging and Aesthetics at (714) 804-5460 to learn more about this non-surgical approach to skin tightening.
What Is Forma RF?
Radiofrequency energy is a relative newcomer to the field of cosmetic medicine, but it has already solidified its place as one of the most groundbreaking treatment options. As skin ages, a protein called collagen begins to break down, which leads to sagging and laxity. On the face and neck, a loss of collagen can create the appearance of jowls or a “turkey neck.” On the body, collagen breakdown can cause crepey-looking skin in areas such as the thighs, buttocks, and upper arms.
RF energy stimulates the body’s natural collagen-building response. Loose, sagging skin will tighten gradually, creating beautiful results over time.
Forma RF’s Proven Benefits
Why is Forma RF one of the most effective non-surgical anti-aging treatments available today? Consider the following advantages this approach can provide.
- Alternative to invasive surgeries such as facelifts and body contouring
- Stimulates new collagen growth in the deep layers of the tissue
- Tightens and lifts lax skin for a naturally youthful appearance
- Minimizes fine lines and sagging skin
- Can be an excellent preventive treatment for anyone who wants to get ahead of the anti-aging curve
- Requires no downtime for recovery
Safe enough to use almost anywhere on the body, including the face, legs, arms, belly, and buttocks
How Does Forma RF Work?
The Forma device uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate contraction in the deep layers of the skin. The RF heat stimulates the formation of new collagen for total skin rejuvenation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Forma RF Skin Tightening?
One of the best things about RF skin tightening is that, unlike older non-invasive skin care treatments that were only effective for lighter skin tones, this treatment is ideal for anyone who is concerned about sagging skin.
What to Expect During a Forma RF Procedure
Forma is a painless, and even relaxing, in-office procedure that usually takes between a half-hour and an hour, depending on the body part you are addressing. First, we will apply a cooling gel to the treatment area. Then, we will deliver the radiofrequency energy using a specially designed handpiece. You will feel a warming sensation as the handpiece passes over your skin; most of our patients liken this feeling to a hot stone massage. Each Forma treatment head has a built-in temperature gauge to deliver heat uniformly, and ensure no areas are under- or overtreated.
What to Expect After Getting Forma RF
There is no need to plan for recovery time after a Forma RF treatment. You can go back to work or resume any other activities immediately. Initially, the treated area will appear reddish or mildly sunburned after treatment, but this will fade by itself within an hour.
Depending on the degree of skin laxity you’re experiencing, you will likely need a series of six to eight weekly Forma treatments to achieve your optimal cosmetic goals. With each treatment, you will see gradual results as your body continues to create new collagen.
Maintaining Your Forma Results
Forma is not permanent, so you will need to plan for occasional touch-up appointments to enjoy tighter, firmer, smoother skin. Our experts can also recommend complementary treatments that you might wish to combine with Forma to enhance its anti-aging benefits.
For the best long-term results, we recommend applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher anytime you are planning to expose your skin to either direct or indirect sunlight.
Frequently Asked Questions About Forma
To help you be a more informed patient, we have compiled answers to some of our clients’ most-asked questions below.
Compared with surgical solutions such as tummy tuck or a facelift, the results from a course of Forma treatments tend to be more subtle. The best candidates for RF skin tightening are people experiencing a mild to moderate degree of skin laxity. During an in-person consultation, our experts will evaluate your skin and the degree of aging you’re experiencing to determine if Forma is right for you.
The Forma handpiece has on-board safety features, including temperature control. It enables the clinician to set the desired temperature below the threshold that can cause damage to complete your treatment without risking burns. Forma reads the skin’s surface temperature 1,000 times per second, and automatically adjusts the RF energy when the device senses the skin has reached the required temperature. Since Forma is an FDA-approved device, you can rest assured it has passed a thorough series of clinical trials.
As with many other devices that tighten the skin with heat energy, the results of Forma are not immediate. The results will reveal themselves over several months. This “slow-and-steady” improvement is ideal for anyone who prefers a subtle approach to aesthetic improvements.
Radiofrequency energy stimulates your body to produce more collagen, a structural protein that acts like scaffolding within your skin. The boost in collagen production is how Forma creates its tightening results. Unlike with lasers, there is no light involved, and it is safe for any skin tone and texture.
Forma can treat the face and neck, including the delicate skin around the eyes and eyelid area. It can also contour and improve the skin health of other areas of the body, such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, waist, stomach, and arms.
