One cannot deny that when it comes to facial procedures that are endorsed by Hollywood stars, there is an immediate sense of curiosity and popularity of those celebrity approved treatments. And so it was in the case of Forma, when Kim Kardashian referred to it as her secret to a non-surgical facelift. Safe to say, the world went nuts searching for more information on it. But we’re here to give you the lowdown on how you can get that well sculpted face just like she does!
At Ra Skin and Aesthetics, we have worked with this fabulous device to instantly transform skin and give the face a whole new look, but wait for the best part – no downtime involved at all!
So now that we have you all excited to know more, let’s jump right into it.
WHAT IS FORMA?
Quite simply put, FORMA is a non-surgical thermal skin treatment that uses bipolar radio-frequency technology to improve the appearance of the skin.
It stimulates collagen production and therefore gives the appearance of a more lifted, tightened, and contoured face.
HOW DOES FORMA WORK?
The device uses radio-frequency technology to target deep layers of the skin and makes sure that no area remains over or under treated. The results are instant and consistent.
IS FORMA FOR ME?
FORMA is suitable for all skin types and is suitable for individuals seeking a non-invasive and natural approach to achieve a younger appearance without surgery, scars, or downtime.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Forma is designed to be an essentially painless procedure due to its precise technology.
Patients often describe the sensation of this treatment as a heated wand being rubbed up and down the face, giving the feeling of your skin being ironed. A slight redness in the treated area is common post-procedure, and subsides in a few hours.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
The beauty of Forma is that there is absolutely no downtime, and it can be done in the amount of time you take for that quick coffee break! In the case of slight redness in the treated area, it can be expected to subside in a few hours time.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Forma can be used on both the face and the body. Commonly treated areas on the face include forehead, crows feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, jowls, smile lines, and neck. On the body, the arms and the abdomen are commonly worked on, and any other part of the body that needs more refinement.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
The answer to this always depends on the condition of the skin that you begin with. It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. The duration of the treatment period is based on a thorough medical pre-evaluation conducted by Dr. Rashmi Shetty.
Note: Treatments such as these work by stimulating your own collagen, which means that your own body needs to respond to the stimulation. At Ra Skin and Aesthetics, we believe in not making you do excessive or un-required sittings.
Dr. Shetty emphasises the need to respect your skin by giving it sufficient time to regenerate and for the underlying tissue to respond to the session.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, absolutely! At Ra, we love combining Forma with other treatments. Your ultimate goal is to look your best, and we know that when it comes to beauty, it is not just about that top layer of your skin. The expertise and knowledge of your doctor is imperative in giving you those results.
It is also important to note that what you might perceive as healthy glowing skin, may not be just the role of the skin itself. There are multiple layers of skin and factors relating to these that contribute to the overall appearance of your skin.
Forma helps in stimulating your collagen, elastin, and other ground substances. However, unless your skin is well hydrated, Forma alone might not give you that final ‘wow factor’ and so we combine it with amazing facials. At times, if the skin is in need of deeper bio-regenerators, we supplement the treatment with injectable bio-regenerators like Profhilo, Volite, or skin boosters.
Additionally, unless the skin is lifted from within, just fixing the surface of it is not the best solution. If the deeper layers of your skin such as the SMAS need a boost too, Dr. Shetty loves to supplement the Forma with other skin lifting devices such as Ulthera and SygmaLift that work on these deeper layers as well.
The knowledge of what combination of treatments and devices are required for your skin goals, is truly an art. Your trust in us has always manifested the best outcomes for your skin goals.
WHAT SETS US APART AT RA SKIN AND AESTHETICS?
Dr. Rashmi Shetty only picks up the best U.S FDA approved machines that have stood the test of time. She is quick to adapt to the newest and most sophisticated gadgets and devices in the world of skin and beauty.
We are proud to say that our patients have always been extremely happy with the protocols followed by our staff, the training and skill of our technicians, and most importantly – the way Dr. Shetty modulates the equipment.
With each individual having their own specific skin goal, knowing how to alter the use of the device, combine it with other treatments, and adapt the technology in a way that gives you the tailor made result that you have come for is what we are best known for.
