What is Forma? 

Forma is an advanced, non-invasive skin tightening procedure that improves the skin with the use of radiofrequency energy. The RF energy lifts and tightens the features by increasing collagen production. During a Forma facial, a heated wand is rubbed over your face, emitting RF energy. This results in better definition in the jawline, improved and visibly-brighter skin, and lifted, firmer contours. 

Benefits of Forma

Forma achieves many benefits for patients both young and old who would like to refresh and renew their appearance without a surgical procedure. Benefits include the following:

  • Short treatment time
  • Visibly brighter skin
  • Lifted, firmer skin
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Short, lunchtime treatment

What happens during the Forma treatment?

The Forma wand is heated to about 109 degrees before it is passed over your face or skin in other areas. For the body treatments, the applicator is larger, and for the face, the applicator is smaller and more delicate. The treatment feels like a hot stone massage. When the wand is passed around more sensitive areas, such as the eyes, the heat setting is lowered to avoid any pain. 

Forma in Mt. Vernon & Centralia, IL, takes less than 30 minutes and requires no recovery, making it a perfect procedure for busy patients who can pop in during lunchtime. 

What areas can be treated with Forma?

Forma is primarily used on the face, but it is also an effective treatment for other areas of the body. Common treatment areas include the following:

  • Forehead
  • Crow’s feet 
  • Eyelids
  • Under-eye area
  • Midface

  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial folds

What to expect after a Forma treatment

After your treatment of Forma in Mt. Vernon & Centralia, IL, your skin will be red from the heat. This will subside in less than an hour.

We recommend a minimum of six treatments.

Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need more or less treatments. Your treatments can be scheduled about one week apart because the RF energy is extremely gentle. Your skin doesn’t need much time to recover between treatments.
