Innovation Dermatology offers Small Area Face Contouring – Forma & MiniFx. Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting improvement. After having this procedure, you will notice your skin feels smoother and more defined, as well as tighter with a noticeable reduction in wrinkles. This procedure is not only comfortable but is often described as relaxing.
What is Involved in Treatment? This procedure is used to treat the neck, forehead, crow’s feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, and jowls. The number of sessions depends upon the degree of laxity. Generally, 5-6 sessions are required to achieve ultimate results. It is essentially painless, causing slight redness post procedure that subsides in a few hours. There is no recovery time involved. Treatments vary from $200-500, depending on number of areas per session being treated until desired results are achieved.
Give your skin a tighter, smoother, firmer appearance with Forma, a new modality that promotes collagen production. Forma is a non-invasive procedure that is great for facial contouring and improving the texture of the skin. A cool conductive gel is applied to the skin. The Forma device is massaged over the areas to be treated. Commonly treated areas on the face include the forehead, around the eyes (to target crow’s feet), upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines and neck. Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and natural looking approach to improvements in skin texture.
Forma treatments are most effective when performed in a series. Typically, clients will book one session a week, for a total of 6-8 treatments performed to achieve desired results. Treatment time takes approximately 30-60 minutes and is not painful; you will feel a warm sensation but nothing uncomfortable. It is a great ‘lunchtime’ treatment since there is no downtime. Post treatment your face may be a bit flushed, like you just had a good workout, but this should fade within the hour.
