How does Forma work?
InMode Forma achieves effective, youth-restoring rejuvenation by exposing the skin to controlled radio frequency waves. The heat of the waves promotes skin tightening and collagen regeneration within the skin, which restores youthful volume to the area. You will see smoother skin where you once had fine lines and wrinkles. The InMode Forma system applies heat safely: it protects your skin by reading skin temperature in real time 1,000 times per second in order guarantee the skin reaches the temperature required for skin rejuvenation and not one degree higher. Forma is a thermal skin treatment that is capable of restoring your skin to a more healthy, youthful appearance.
What should I expect before and after my Forma treatment?
Your Forma treatment will be completed in 45 minutes to an hour, per treatment area. During your Forma session, software-monitored radio frequency waves will target the depth of your skin responsible for collagen production. You may feel a warming sensation, but no pain is involved. The skin will feel tighter following your treatment.
Your skin will be tighter immediately following your Forma treatment, which will help to smooth your fine lines and reduce the appearance of your wrinkles. You will notice a major improvement in your skin within two weeks. Due to the rejuvenated collagen within your skin, your treated area will continue to look more plump and youthful over the next three months.
Forma requires almost no recovery of any kind. You will be able to return to your regular activities the following day, or even the same day as your procedure if you choose. It is recommended that you avoid direct sun exposure and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen. You also will want to stay away from using hot water or rough manipulation of the skin in your treated area for a few days following your Forma treatment.
You will see your best results with Forma after completing two to three treatment sessions, spaced six to eight weeks apart.
