Practically everyone is going to struggle with skin laxity issues at some point, and that is why hundreds of thousands of skin tightening surgeries are carried out every single year. While those procedures are highly effective, you might not be ready to spend weeks in bed recovering from a major operation. Forma is a cutting-edge treatment that allows us to tighten and tone your skin with nothing more than pulses of radio frequency (RF) energy. This procedure is an ideal option for skin laxity issues throughout your face and the rest of your body.
Understanding Your Aging Skin
Your skin is an incredibly resilient organ, but it must withstand quite a bit of damage over the years. In addition to destructive UV rays, your skin is also going to be exposed to harsh beauty products and airborne toxins. Collagen and elastin will keep your skin firm and toned for a short period of time, but your body might not be able to produce enough of those proteins as you grow older. When your body no longer has an ample supply of collagen and elastin, your skin is going to become loose and damaged.
Some over-the-counter creams and ointments can minimize skin damage, but those products won’t reverse the signs of aging. If you want to enjoy long-term results, then you must explore professional treatments like Forma. The most effective way to improve the appearance of your skin is to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and other key proteins.
A Look at Radio Frequency Treatments
After years of exhaustive research, doctors discovered that they could trigger the production of collagen and elastin with pulses of radio frequency energy. This is accomplished with a small wand that is placed just over the skin, and the energy is going to affect every layer of your dermis and epidermis while leaving the rest of the soft tissue completely unharmed. In the weeks following your first round of treatments, your body is going to overproduce collagen and elastin. Over the course of a few months, your imperfections are going to disappear as your skin becomes smooth and firm.
Your Forma Appointment
The length of each appointment is going to depend on the size of the treatment site and how many areas are going to be treated. During your appointment, you will most likely feel nothing more than gentle warmth once the machine has been turned on. Following each treatment, you can immediately resume all normal activities.
Once you have achieved your cosmetic goals, you can schedule touch-up appointments every few months. We invite you to call or stop by Le Beau Visage Medical Spa to learn more about Forma or any of our other cosmetic treatments.
