Forma Q & A

What is Forma?

Forma uses radiofrequency energy to reverse the effects of aging. During the noninvasive treatment, Dr. Peters moves the Forma wand over any part of your face or body you want to rejuvenate. As the wand sends radiofrequency energy into your skin, it stimulates your tissue and jumpstarts the production of collagen.

Collagen is the protein in your skin that helps it stay firm and elastic. Think of it as your skin’s “net.” More collagen means your skin has greater support to stay taut, smooth, and youthful-looking.

Forma has a built-in temperature sensor so Dr. Peters can carefully monitor the thermal energy in your skin, raising it to the right temperature to deliver the most impressive results while ensuring your comfort.

Forma is specifically designed to treat wrinkles and skin laxity on the face and neck. It can smooth:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • The 11s between your brows

 

It’s also effective in lifting bags from under your eyes and chin.

What is Forma Plus?

Forma is extremely effective for the face, but you may have other areas you’d like to treat. If you’d like to regain your confidence wearing shorts, sleeveless tops, and even bathing suits, Dr. Peters has a solution for you: Forma Plus treatments.

Forma Plus treatments can improve skin laxity anywhere on the body. It’s ideal for treating the:

  • Upper arms
  • Stomach
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees

What can I expect during and after my Forma treatment?

Forma is designed with your comfort in mind. During your treatment, you’ll feel some warmth and tightening in the treated area, but will experience no pain. Because this procedure is completely noninvasive, you can resume your normal activities immediately after. In fact, this can be a lunchtime procedure!

You may notice some results from your Forma or Forma Plus treatment right away, but they will continue to improve over the coming weeks. A single treatment may be enough to help you achieve your face or body goals. If, however, you want to see even greater results, Dr. Peters recommends starting your treatment with a series of three sessions. 

Forma and Forma Plus can turn back the clock, transforming your skin and helping you look younger and more toned. If you would like to learn more, call Mark H. Peters, MD, or book your appointment online.
