What is Forma?
Skin tightening is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a skincare procedure targeted to tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of sagging skin; in turn, it also works to diminish the appearance of apparent wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is a client favourite at Urban Beauty Bar for the reason that it serves as a quick fix before a birthday, a wedding or even a night out with friends and family.
Forma is a relaxing and non-invasive treatment requiring no downtime. It uses heat and radiofrequency to stimulate the production of collagen and tightens facial contours and smoothen static and expression lines. The use of radio frequency and heat allows the technician to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles while re-shaping the contours of your face to compliment your facial structure.
This treatment is an anti-aging treatment that can leave your skin feeling tighter, glowing and much more youthful. The best part of this treatment is that it mimics a warm facial massage. Not only does it bring you the quick results you’re looking for but it’s also one of our most relaxing treatments at Urban Beauty Bar.
Here at Urban Beauty Bar, we specialize in heat-induced skin tightening. More specifically, we are proud to bring to you the pain free and result driven Forma skin tightening treatment to you.
The Forma treatment is preferable over other skin tightening treatments because it is non-invasive and requires no downtime. It uses heat and radiofrequency to stimulate the production of more collagen in the body, resulting in brighter, plumper, and more youthful skin.
How Does Forma Work?
Forma makes use of radiofrequency and heat to stimulate the production of collagen. Heat and radiofrequency provide deep and uniform skin stimulation. During your skin tightening session, a wand-like device will be moved across the skin, allowing for heat to penetrate deeper into the skin and almost providing an effect comparable to ironing out a wrinkled sheet.
In addition, the Forma wand device precisely adjusts to the contours of your face, providing uniform care to the entire treatment area. In other words, you won’t end up with spots that are not wrinkle-free; we ensure that even the harder-to-reach areas like our crow’s feet are reached and treated equally. The innovative development of the Forma applicator has the ability to target it all.
Due to the deep radiofrequency energy exuded by the Forma wand, your body’s natural mechanisms should become more effective at keeping the skin plump.
In a nutshell, Forma provides a uniform, auto-adjusting, non-invasive treatment that will visibly tighten your skin.
Is Forma Safe?
Understandably, the idea of applying laser technology to your delicate facial tissue can sound a little scary. We’re here to assure you that you have nothing to fear when you book your skin tightening treatment at Urban Beauty Bar.
With our non-invasive Forma handpiece, the procedure is rather simple and shouldn’t cause any pain. While the wand applicator does get hot, most of our clients compare the feeling to receiving a relaxing hot stone massage on their face.
If the heat becomes too uncomfortable for you, we can always apply a numbing gel, but this scenario is unlikely. Keep in mind that the precise technology of Forma lowers heat levels for more sensitive areas, like the skin around the eyes.
Because our skin tightening treatment is so non-invasive and requires no downtime, almost anyone can try out our Forma treatment. Young people can come in to receive the treatment as a preventive measure against the onset of wrinkles. Patients can also utilize Forma to target and diminish already-developed wrinkles and sagging skin.
Forma is safe for all skin types. However, as with most skin care procedures, if you have sensitive skin, like if you’re prone to eczema or have active acne, it is best to wait until your skin is clear and soothed before getting Forma skin tightening. While the procedure is non-invasive, the wand does heat up, which could cause further irritation for those with sensitive skin.
In terms of skin care products prior to your appointment, please refrain from using topical treatments and products 3-5 days prior to your scheduled appointment. While you can certainly cleanse and moisturize your skin as usual, refrain from using strong active ingredients.
If you’ve been searching for Forma skin tightening near you, we can help you determine if this skin tightening procedure is right for you.
Does Forma require Multiple Treatments?
With Forma, the skin tightening effect will immediately be observed after your first session. However, in order to maintain the best results and keep your skin looking its youngest, we recommend regular skin tightening treatments. However, in order to see maximum results, it’s best done in a series of 6-8 treatments. Most clients will stick to a schedule of booking in a forma treatment either weekly, biweekly or monthly depending on which skin goals they wish to achieve. For clients that do a series of forma treatments 1-2 weeks apart, they will be able to reap the most benefits from these treatments as we are continuously penetrating heat and tightening the skin on a continual basis.
After a client undergoes a recommended series of 6-8 forma treatments, clients can also book yearly maintenance appointments as the results of Forma skin tightening can last up to four years.
While you can save money with gua sha and at-home skin tightening treatments, they won’t produce any visible results. Instead, invest in your skin and invest in professional skin tightening services that will be worth the investment if you’re looking to see noticeable results.
Where Can I Receive Forma?
While skin tightening tends to be associated with the face, you can receive Forma tightening anywhere on your body. We can also target specific areas of concern. If you want to focus on tightening jowls, smile lines, neck skin, or the forehead, our precise handpiece can tackle any areas of concern for you to help you feel more comfortable in the skin you’re in.
Your skin should look visibly more toned after the minimal redness and minimal irritation settles down from your session. However, in order to maintain your results and really get the full benefits of our Forma treatment, we do recommend regular appointments just like any other facial or any other skincare service.
How long do the results last?
Factors determining how long the results last include maintenance and the number of sessions you undergo. Professionals recommend at least 6 sessions for best results, but you will start noticing changes after the first session. That means you can get better-looking skin even when you go for the session once, but it will only last a few weeks. The only way to enjoy lasting results is by completing multiple sessions followed by annual maintenance – a one-year appointment can give you better skin for up to four years.
Who can get Forma treatment?
Forma is perfect for anyone who prefers a non-invasive skin tightening solution between 20 and 80 years. Younger patients use the procedure as a preventive measure or to get a more defined appearance, while older people use it to gain tighter and more vibrant skin. We will assess your condition and use the procedure to help you achieve your goal regardless of gender.
That said, you should always disclose skin concerns before the process. Sensitive skin may not be suitable for formal treatment, but our professionals will give a more definitive answer after assessment.
Will the treatment hurt?
Forma treatment is painless even though it uses high heat. You can always ask for a numbing agent if you feel pain, though that is unnecessary. We lower the heat level around more sensitive facial areas like the eyes.
Forma treatment is one of the best solutions for aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines. It gets better when done by our professionals with vast experience and expertise in non-surgical skin tightening treatments. We enhance the pros of the safe and reliable procedure to ensure you get more beautiful skin.
FORMA SKIN TIGHTENING POST-CARE
Because laser skin resurfacing involves removing the top layer of your skin, redness and swelling will be inevitable right after your procedure. All you need to do is follow our customized pre-care instructions so you can significantly decrease the chances of dramatic swelling.
First off, if you are taking medications such as Ibuprofen, aspirin, or Vitamin E, you must not take any for at least 7 days prior to your procedure. In addition, we also encourage clients who smoke to refrain from doing so for at least two weeks before they are set to receive the treatment.
In terms of skincare treatment prior to your appointment, please refrain from using topical treatments in the meantime. While you can certainly cleanse and moisturize your skin as usual, anything strong like retinol should be avoided.
Before you come in for your appointment, we’ll provide you with more detailed pre-care recommendations.
What are the benefits of Forma?
With Forma skin tightening, your skin will instantly look tighter once the post-procedure redness subsides. Our clients love booking in a forma treatment before a big event as well as enjoy coming in on a weekly basis to be able to continuously enjoy the benefits of the forma treatment.
The following benefits can be achieved through Forma:
- Targets areas of concerns, such as jowls, smile lines, neck skin, or the forehead
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Lifting and contouring of the skin
- Skin tightening
- Promotes the production of collagen and elastin
You may be familiar with do-it-yourself skin tightening devices. These home devices will barely penetrate into the skin, and likely will not produce any visible results. To truly see a visible increase in collagen, a professional level medical
