FORMA RF SKIN TIGHTENING
What is Forma RF Skin Tightening?
Forma Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening is an effective treatment for addressing skin laxity on the face and body and is commonly used for non-surgical face and body tightening in areas such as the eyes, jowls, neck and stomach. During a Forma RF Skin Tightening treatment the temperature in the sub dermal layers of the skin increases, causing shortening (tightening) of the collagen fibres and stimulating new collagen development. This treatment requires no downtime and results are immediately noticeable, becoming even more so in the weeks following the treatment as the build-up of collagen effects further skin contraction.
What does the treatment involve?
During treatment, the therapist slowly rotates the handpiece over the targeted area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis – heating the dermis to between 39 and 45 degrees Celsius without harm to surrounding tissue. During treatment you will feel a warm-hot sensation, but it doesn’t burn or hurt – the heat bypasses the epidermis altogether.
How many treatments will I need?
This will be individually assessed during your consultation. Typically to achieve maximum results, a course of 6 treatments every 1-2 weeks. Then one maintenance treatment every 3-6 months. Thicker skin that is more fibrotic may require more sessions.
How long will the results last?
Results vary from client to client. They can last 24 months or more based on the client’s natural aging process.

Radio Frequency treatments are not suitable for clients with a pacemaker or internal defibrillator or those who have cystic acne, open wounds or infections in the area to be treated. Treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or while nursing.
