appointment Duration: 60 Minutes

FORMA by InMode is the first auto-adjusting, non-invasive RF skin treatment device for deep and uniform tissue stimulation.

What is Forma RF?

Forma by InMode is the first auto-adjusting, non-invasive RF skin treatment device for deep and uniform tissue stimulation. Known as the ultimate non-surgical skin tightening treatment, patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more contracted after treatment, with a reduction in wrinkles. The device uses radiofrequency (RF) heating technology to stimulate new collagen production in the dermal and sub-dermal skin layers, improving skin elasticity for long-lasting, remarkable results. Our Forma device is ideal for treating smaller face and body areas, such as the forehead, upper and lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jawline and neck.

The Forma device utilises thermal sensors built into the handpiece to read the skin’s surface temperature during treatment constantly. This allows clinicians to acquire desired skin temperature in real-time for optimal results. The devices’ handheld nature also enables clinicians to target specific areas, making Forma treatments highly customisable to every patient. Forma treatments can be conducted on all skin types and skin tones due to its advanced radiofrequency technology being safer than traditional lasers on darker skin types. There is no downtime required for Forma and Forma Plus treatments, and with immediate results, skin tightening and lifting, makes this the perfect ‘lunchtime lift’ treatment.

Procedure

Before the treatment begins, your clinician will cleanse the skin of the treated area to remove any dirt or impurities. Then, ultrasound gel, which has a cooling effect, is applied to the treatment area. The Forma device is then glided over the chosen areas until the optimal temperature to stimulate collagen production is reached and maintained. Radiofrequency technology then penetrates the deeper skin layers to heat them, helping to create smoother and tighter skin. The optimal temperature is maintained with the device’s thermal sensors to ensure no areas are over or under heated.

Most patients will feel a gentle heat during treatment, much like a hot stone massage, and will begin to feel the treatment’s tightening effects. The treatment takes approximately 15 minutes per treated zone, and depending on the number of treatment areas, one session may take between 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Aftercare

Although the treatment has very minimal side effects, we always recommend following some aftercare advice to ensure optimal, long-lasting results. Post-treatment care for Forma and Forma Plus includes:

  • Maintain hydration and water intake to two litres a day to promote skin health and vitality through lymphatic drainage.
  • Use gentle skin cleansers for a few days post-treatment.
  • Avoid exfoliation for a couple of days post-treatment.
  • Do not undergo any tanning treatments for a couple of days.
  • Avoid direct, prolonged sun exposure for two to three days, as this can cause skin irritation.
  • Patients can wear makeup immediately after treatment and should also use high-SPF sunscreen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Forma and Forma Plus right for me?

Forma treatments are suitable for all skin types. Individuals seeking a non-invasive and natural-looking approach to improving their skin tone and texture irregularities may find this treatment highly beneficial. Forma treatment patients have reported smoother, tighter and lift skin, that is more revitalised, free of impurities with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Which areas of the body can be treated?

Forma can be used anywhere on the face and body that experiences skin laxity, wrinkles, and other skin texture issues. Commonly treated areas of the face include the forehead, crow’s feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, jowls, smile lines, nasolabial folds, and neck.

How many sessions will I need?

It is recommended that patients undergo weekly sessions over six weeks, but this will depend on the severity of an individual’s skin laxity. Patients with mild excess skin may achieve their desired results in fewer sessions with a greater interval between each treatment.

Do Forma treatments hurt?

Forma and Forma Plus patients do not report any discomfort with these treatments. Most individuals find it to be a relaxing and enjoyable treatment, as the gentle heat from the device is a similar feeling to a hot stone massage.
