Forma Skin Tightening is its name, and firming your skin to a more youthful-looking appearance is its game. This FDA-approved technology uses radio-frequency energy to increase collagen turnover and increase the elasticity of your skin — the very thing that keeps it supple and youthful looking. It’s not only a safe and nearly pain-free way to define and smooth your skin instantly, but also a non-surgical procedure, so it requires no downtime whatsoever. So, what exactly happens during this instant facelift?

Your licensed Viva med spa practitioner will apply a cool conductive gel to your skin — kind of like an ultrasound — so that the warm temperature of the Forma wand will feel comfortable, like a relaxing hot stone massage. Forma then glides across your skin, emitting a controlled radio frequency as it moves, which heats the deep layers of tissue beneath the skin.

The clinically proven, proprietary A.C.E. technology ensures the heating treatment maintains a consistent ideal temperature for a set period of time, for safe and thorough results. Your body’s natural response to the deep tissue stimulation is to activate new collagen, resulting in a firmer and more contoured appearance.
