Is your skin looser than it used to be? Do you wish you had a quick, non-invasive way to erase your wrinkles? InMode Forma is a safe, effective way to tighten and plump your skin, without the use of needles or incisions.
InMode Forma achieves effective, youth-restoring rejuvenation by exposing the skin to controlled radio frequency waves. The heat of the waves promotes skin tightening and collagen regeneration within the skin, which restores youthful volume to the area. You will see smoother skin where you once had fine lines and wrinkles.
The InMode Forma system applies heat safely: it protects your skin by reading skin temperature in real time 1,000 times per second in order guarantee the skin reaches the temperature required for skin rejuvenation and not one degree higher.
Forma is a thermal skin treatment that is capable of restoring your skin to a more healthy, youthful appearance. To learn more about what Forma can do to treat your wrinkles and skin laxity, call Dr. Michaels’ and schedule your consultation.
What is InMode Forma?
InMode Forma applies focused radio frequency waves to your skin in order to address skin laxity and smooth wrinkles. The treatment is gentle and designed to treat even the most sensitive skin. The radio frequency waves will heat and tighten the skin, as well as penetrate to the level of the skin responsible for collagen production. Collagen is a vital component of soft, firm skin: however, our bodies slowly produce less collagen as we age, resulting in the weakening of the skin’s support structures. Our reduced collagen results in looser skin and the formation of wrinkles. The Forma system tightens the skin and stimulates new collagen production in the dermis. This new collagen, over time, produces a smoother, more youthful appearance in the skin.
Forma’s gentle but targeted radio frequency technology also enables Dr. Michaels to do mild contouring in the treated area. He will make sure your appearance is balanced and youthful-looking.
The Forma system contains an algorithm which tracks the temperature of the skin by the millisecond. This keeps the tissue safe and makes sure the skin is exposed to the exact temperature necessary for tightening and collagen stimulation.
Areas Treatable with Forma
Forma has the ability to plump skin and tighten wrinkles in patients’:
- Upper abdomen
Patients who would like to tighten and plump the skin in larger areas of their body may receive their treatment with Forma Plus, a component of the Forma system capable of treating larger areas.
What Are the Benefits of Forma?
Forma’s controlled application of radio frequency waves will:
- Create almost immediate skin contraction. No need to wait through weeks of recovery to see results. You will leave Dr. Michaels’ office with less apparent, smoothed fine lines and wrinkles.
- Contour a patient’s face or body to achieve a slimmer, more youthful appearance.
- Stimulate collagen generation, which will improve the volume and health of your skin for months to come.
- Give you peace of mind. Forma’s temperature sensor will keep your skin safe while providing effective skin rejuvenation.
- Provide a comfortable experience. Thanks to Forma’s application of RF waves, patients enjoy a pain-free treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients will see their skin become tighter and their wrinkles diminish after a single Forma treatment. After two to three treatments, you will see an impressive improvement in your wrinkles and skin laxity. You will look and feel years younger!
If you are tired of your acne scars and hyperpigmentation, Fractora could be the skin solution you are looking for. Fractora is another part of the InMode system which applies targeted radio frequency waves to the dermis. Like Forma, Fractora’s controlled heat will reach and stimulate collagen production in the skin, which creates a youthful volume within your skin in the months following your treatment.
The microneedling, combined with the RF waves, will promote healthy resurfacing.
Fractora differentiates itself from Forma with its application of a grouping of pins to the skin. The pins create microlesions, which promote the skin to heal itself. The pins come in configurations of 60, 24, or 24 coated, and vary by length to allow Dr. Michaels to penetrate to the depth of the dermis necessary to stimulate your collagen production. Fractora is an excellent means of erasing your acne scars and hyperpigmentation while improving the overall youthful appearance of your skin.
While Fractora can improve your skin after one treatment, you will see your best results after three to four sessions.
Fractora is capable of resurfacing and rejuvenating all skin types.
Can I Combine Fractora & Forma?
If you are interested in restoring healthy volume and elasticity to your skin, as well as improving the appearance of your scars and skin pigmentations, you may want to consider undergoing a combined treatment of Forma and Fractora. Forma will improve the volume and deep health of your skin, while the Fractora will smooth and clear the surface of the treated area.
Patients will need to complete a short period of downtime after receiving both Forma and Fractora. The microneedling incorporated into Fractora will require a small recovery window, while the skin heals from any resulting redness or swelling.
Am I a Candidate for Forma?
You may be a good candidate for Forma if you want to improve the elasticity of your skin, to reduce the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, and to restore youthful volume to your skin. Forma will address the quality and deep health of your skin, but will not address scarring or hyperpigmentation.
Forma may not be the right rejuvenation choice for patients with darker skin tones.
If you are experiencing an active skin condition, endocrine disorder, or serious medical condition, you may not be a candidate for Forma at this time.
