Forma

Forma technology is a revolutionary method of reducing wrinkles by using radio frequency (RF) currents that result in a comfortable experience, requiring no downtime. Its RF technology helps stimulate the formation of collagen, which improves skin elasticity and leads to a more youthful appearance.

How it Works

Using a radio frequency current that flows between electrodes, it provides a comfortable yet effective treatment. This non-surgical device uses heat to warm up the layers under your skin to reverse the signs of aging and stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers – the building blogs of youthful skin. With built-in temperature controls, there is no need to worry about hot spots. Forma technology can exclusively provide prolonged exposure using therapeutic temperatures to offer fast, outstanding results that are also uniform.

Commonly treated areas include:

  • Forehead
  • Eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Upper eyelids
  • Lower eyelids
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jowls
  • Smile lines
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Upper arms (bat wings)
  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Other areas of loose skin

Features

Forma technology has a built-in temperature sensor in the hand piece that reads the temperature of your skin 1000 times per second. This means Dr. Preminger can gauge the temperature of your skin in real time, providing a safe and comfortable experience.

Using unprecedented safety of RF (radio frequency) technology, there is even a “cut off temperature” feature that will reduce the RF energy automatically should the hand piece sense the maximum allowed skin temperature has been reached.

Benefits

If you are searching for a scalpel-free, non-surgical method to a facelift, you are in luck!

Patients can enjoy these benefits of Forma technology:

  • Surgery free
  • No anesthesia necessary
  • Pain-free procedure
  • No recovery time required
  • Substantially less expensive compared to a traditional facelift
  • Versatile to use in various areas of the body

What to expect

Each treatment should take between 45 minutes to one hour. The number of treatments necessary will depend on your unique needs but may take up to six treatments for maximum effectiveness.

These treatments are conducted once every six weeks. After that, expect to undergo maintenance treatments about once every 3-4 months thereafter.

How much does Forma cost?

The overall cost of your Forma treatment will vary, depending on how many areas you have treated, and how many sessions you require. However, in comparison to a traditional facelift,

Forma can tighten and reduce wrinkles on your face for thousands of dollars less than a surgical facelift. Dr. B. Aviva Preminger offers a variety of payment options at her boutique plastic surgery office located in the upper east side of Manhattan.

Is Forma for me?

This revolutionary technology is certainly ideal for individuals with mild to moderate wrinkles, sagging skin, or signs of aging. However, it may not be ideal for everyone.

In some cases, a traditional facelift may be a better option to achieve the lasting results that you desire. To determine if Forma is right for you, consider a consultation with New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Preminger.
