Forma is a non-invasive radiofrequency technology designed to treat the forehead, upper and lower eyelids, and the creases around the nose, mouth, jowls, and neck. This device remodels skin and tissue using a subdermal heating applicator that has a built-in temperature sensor. Forma Plus is used to treat cellulite and loose skin on larger areas of the body.

Who is a good candidate for Forma/Forma Plus RF skin rejuvenation?

Forma technology is suitable for all skin types. You may be a good candidate if you would like to:

  • Tighten the skin on the face and neck or larger areas of the body
  • Reduce the appearance of mild to moderate skin laxity without undergoing surgery
  • Enjoy smoother, firmer skin with minimal discomfort and no downtime

What should I expect with a Forma/Forma Plus treatment in NYC, NJ, or Miami?

You may need a series of Forma or Forma Plus treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. Dr. Mesa will customize a treatment plan specifically for your needs. This is a virtually painless, in-office procedure that takes less than 30 minutes to perform. A heated wand is moved up and down your face or area of the body you want to improve. The sensation is described as being similar to a hot stone massage. When the procedure is complete, your face will appear lifted, your skin will be visibly brighter, and your jaw will appear more defined.

What is recovery like after a Forma RF skin rejuvenation treatment?

There is no downtime with a Forma or Forma Plus skin rejuvenation treatment. You may have slight redness in the treatment area which should subside within a few hours. You may be instructed to avoid hot water or scrubbing and to apply moisturizer in the treatment area for a few days after each session.

Is the treatment safe?

Forma devices include a cut-off temperature feature that reduces radiofrequency energy immediately when the required skin temperature has been reached. The handpiece also has a built-in thermal sensor that allows the doctor to monitor and control skin temperature in real time.

How does Forma technology work?

Forma uses bipolar radiofrequency heating, which is ideal for remodeling the skin to create a more youthful appearance. Radiofrequency energy flows uniformly between electrodes for a comfortable treatment experience. This technique remodels the dermis (deeper layer of skin) by delivering uniform heating that stimulates subcutaneous (under the skin) tissues. It improves skin texture by addressing the delicate areas of the face.

  • Forma plus uses radiofrequency energy to treat problem areas
  • It is a non-invasive, comfortable procedure that requires no downtime
  • Forma devices have built-in temperature controls for safety and optimal results
  • This treatment stimulates collagen production, improves elasticity, tightens the skin, and reduces wrinkles
