Forma Skin Tightening

Cosmetic Dermatologist Serving Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Larchmont & surrounding areas in California

The Forma laser for loose skin uses radio frequency energy to lift and tighten the skin. It stimulates the body’s own collagen to plump up areas and improve skin elasticity. 

Forma can be used on both the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crow’s feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. On the body, popular treatments consist of the arms (bat wings), abdomen and other areas that may need contraction

  • No anesthesia or downtime
  • Short session times
  • Cumulative results over 3-5 sessions

Will it hurt?

Forma is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post- procedure, which subsides within a few hours. Forma is quite different from previous radio frequency tightening systems which were painful with no ability to ascertain or control effective temperature levels.

How does it work? 

The radio frequency current flows between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience, without concerns of hot spots or under-treatment. Built-in temperature controls make sure the skin is heated to a clinically responsive temperature without the risk of getting too hot.

Safety at the forefront

Forma has a temperature sensor built into the hand piece which reads skin surface temperature 1000 times per second in real time.

Software algorithm controls RF delivery. The “cut off temperature" feature reduces RF energy automatically when the hand piece senses that the required skin temperature has been reached.
