Forma Skin Tightening
Ready to slow down the clock and keep your skin firm and young looking? Improve your skin’s texture and appearance with non-invasive Forma Skin Tightening. Forma uses radio-frequency energy to stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity. That’s why it’s often referred to as the non-surgical or “instant face lift.”
Forma offers both anti-aging and preventive benefits. It effectively combats loose, sagging skin and wrinkles on the face, neck, chest and body. Plus, its a fantastic treatment to delay the natural aging process and help maintain younger-looking skin longer for clients in their early 20s and 30s.
This FDA-approved technology is safe and virtually painless. Best of all, your skin will look smoother and more defined with absolutely zero downtime.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
An alternative to surgical face lifts, Forma is a non-invasive thermal skin care treatment that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to stimulate the body’s natural regenerative response — the generation of collagen — to counteract the effects of aging and gravity on your skin.
Here’s how. Controlled radio frequency energy is emitted from the Forma application head as it moves over the treatment area. It gradually heats the the deep layers of tissue beneath the skin to an optimal temperature for a set period of time. Consequently, the body responds to this deep tissue stimulation by forming new collagen, its natural skin plumping mechanism. This, in turn, improves the skin’s elasticity and contour for a firmer, tighter appearance.
Results are both natural looking and long-lasting. Plus, not only is Forma non-surgical and FDA approved, but it’s also painless, with no downtime.
What Issues Does It Improve?
Forma treatments are effective on both the face and body. Commonly treated areas and issues include:
- Crows Feet
- Nasolabial folds (smile or laugh lines)
- Arms (bat wings)
- Inner & Outer Thighs
- Other areas with loose skin

Skin Tightening Technology
At Viva, we use the Forma Skin Tightening device by InMode. This FDA-approved technology features the clinically-proven, proprietary A.C.E technology:
- Acquire: Forma’s built-in temperature sensor reads the skin surface temperature 1,000 times per second
- Control: Algorithms that provide unprecedented safety for radio-frequency (RF) delivery and precise “cut off” once required temperatures are reached
- Extend: Exclusive capacity for prolonged exposure at therapeutic temperatures, for optimal clinical outcomes
A.C.E technology optimizes radio frequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being over or under treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.

How Long Is A Treatment?
The average skin tightening treatment takes between 45-60 minutes, depending upon the size and number of treatment areas.
What Does Skin Tightening Feel Like? Does It Hurt?
Forma is painless treatment with no downtime because of its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. A lot of our clients say it feels like a warm massage.
Before the treatment, your Viva med spa practitioner will apply cool conductive gel to the treatment area. You will feel a warming sensation as the Forma applicator glides across your skin. The heating sensation will gradually increase until it reaches ideal temperature. However, it will feel as if you’re receiving a warm, skin massage (or ironing) that is both comfortable and relaxing.
When the treatment is over, your Viva med spa service provider will wipe away the cooling gel and soothe your skin with a cool towel. Then apply moisturizer and sunscreen.
Slight redness in the treatment area is common post-treatment. It may also feel warm to the touch. However, both should subside within a few hours.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is zero downtime after your BodyFx treatment. Typically clients will experience warmth and redness in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. However, you can get back to your regular activities immediately post treatment.
We also strongly recommend keeping your skin hydrated after your body contouring session. Drink plenty of water, use good moisturizer on the treatment area, and reduce your alcohol intake.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For best results, plan for a series of 6 sessions performed weekly over a 6-8 week period. Individuals with mild skin laxity may require fewer sessions with more weeks between treatments. Our med spa team will help you determine the best plan for you pre-treatment.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
For some clients, results are visible after their first few skin tightening treatments. You will notice continued improvement for months after a full series as new collagen forms and your skin continues to contract.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost?
For best results and savings, schedule a package of six treatments. Purchase five Forma treatments in advance, receive the 6th for free.
|Treatment Area||Per Treatment||Series of 6 Treatments|
|Face & Neck||$400||$2,200|
|Back of Arms||$200||$1,100|
|Inner & Outer Thighs||$350||$1,750|
