Forma and then Some — Forma Plus
- Posted on: Apr 30 2021
In April’s first blog we talked about the radiofrequency treatment from InMode known as Forma. This non-invasive treatment uses easy-to-take RF energy to tighten and rejuvenate the skin all across the face and neck.
In April’s second blog, let’s get bigger with Forma Plus.
What is Forma Plus?
Everything that is great about Forma — utilizing radiofrequency energy comfortably delivered through a handpiece to trigger a wound-healing reaction in the skin — is the same with Forma Plus. Just bigger.
By that, we mean, a bigger handpiece. By attaching a larger head, Forma Plus enables us to use the same skin tightening RF energy across the body. This is unusual for RF and laser rejuvenation treatments; they typically don’t venture beyond the facial skin and neck.
What areas can I treat with Forma Plus?
We all have areas that have taken on a little sagging and looseness. This can be from the gain and subsequent loss of some weight, or it can simply be due to the slackening and loosening that is an unfortunate part of normal aging. Regardless of the why, no one’s very fond to see their skin becoming looser with every passing year.
At Austin Cosmetic Surgery, we can use Forma Plus all over the body. The most popular areas are the abdomen, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, back fat, and the knees.
Do Forma and Forma Plus treatments hurt?
That’s the beauty of InMode’s use of radiofrequency energy in these two treatments: they don’t hurt at all. Our patients in Austin and Scottsdale equate the feeling to that of a hot stone massage. And who doesn’t love those? That’s simply the radiofrequency energy heating the dermis, the key to new collagen production. There isn’t a minute of downtime. Your skin can be slightly red across the treatment areas, but this fully passes in just a few hours.
What are the benefits of Forma and Forma Plus at Austin Cosmetic Surgery?
These are great treatments from our InMode platform. Here are some of the benefits:
- Minimally invasive with no downtime.
- Forma and Forma Plus don’t create the lingering redness or possible hyperpigmentation that can occur with laser rejuvenation treatments.
- Tighter, smoother skin thanks to the new collagen production.
- Reduces skin irregularities and lines from within.
- Can be used on all skin tones and types without risk.
- Fully customizable with the pulse duration and penetration depths.
