Skin Tightening - Forma & Forma Plus

Forma technology is the superior choice for the treatment of wrinkles. Forma stimulates the formation of new collagen and improves the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting and remarkable results. The radio frequency current flows between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience, without concerns of hot spots or undertreatment. Built-in temperature controls allow for the attainment of clinically proven optimal epidermal temperatures. In addition, Forma has the exclusive capacity for prolonged exposure at therapeutic temperatures, which can be reached quickly and uniformly.

Forma is based on ACE technology which is comprised of the following steps:

  • Acquire: Forma has a temperature sensor built into the hand piece which reads skin surface temperature 1000 times per
        second, allowing clinicians to acquire skin temperature in real time.
  • Control: Software algorithm allows unprecedented safety of RF delivery. The “cut off temperature" feature reduces RF
        energy automatically when the hand piece senses that the required skin temperature has been reached.
  • Extend: Clinical evidence suggests prolonged exposure to temperature above 40°C is advantageous for optimal clinical
        outcomes. Only InMode's A.C.E. technology allows you to utilize therapeutic temperatures safely and efficiently.

Who can be treated & What areas are treated?

Since the Forma & Forma Plus heats tissue under the skin's surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. North Shore Laser Clinic staff can advise you if the Forma or Forma Plus is right for you.  The face, neck, abdomen, arms & knees are all areas can be treated.

How many treatments will I need?

Although a single treatment has produced very good results for many patients, it is recommended for patients to have 6 sessions and maintenance treatments periodically.  

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours. Most clients like this look as it gives a look of "fullness".  The best results work over time 4-6 months down the road.

What do treatments feel like?

The treatment is extremely comfortable for clients.
