Skin Tightening

Ready to slow down the clock and keep your skin firm and young looking? Improve your skin’s texture and appearance with noninvasive 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 an effective treatment to delay the natural aging process and help maintain younger-looking skin longer for patients in their early 20s and 30s.

This FDA-approved skin tightening 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, FDA-approved 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. The body responds to this deep tissue stimulation by forming new collagen, it’s 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 non-invasive, but it’s also painless, with no downtime.

How Quickly Will I See Results?

For some, results are visible after your 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.

What Does It Feel Like? Does It Hurt?

Forma is a painless treatment with no downtime because of it’s 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 Medspa practitioner will wipe away the cooling gel and soothe your skin with a cool towel. Then she will 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.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Forma skin tightening is a fantastic option for individuals who want a non-invasive, natural-looking approach to improving their skin tone, texture, and laxity.  It is suitable for all skin types and tones. Because there is no downtime, it is an ideal treatment for busy, active people.
