WHAT IS FORMA PLUS?
FORMA PLUS is a dermal and sub-dermal heating technology using RF energy to stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve the body’s skin elasticity for long-lasting and remarkable results. It’s thermal sensor built into the hand-piece which reads skin surface temperature constantly during treatment, allowing clinicians to acquire desired skin temperature in real time. The “cut off temperature” feature reduces RF energy automatically when the handpiece senses that desired temperature is approached to ensure an effective treatment.
Clinical evidence suggests prolonged exposure to temperature above 40°C is advantageous for optimal clinical outcomes.
Our Forma™ and Forma Plus™ by INMODE RF Technology
InMode is an Israeli based company focus on developing products and procedures utilizing the most innovative radio frequency, light-based energy and laser technologies that strives to enable new emerging minimally-invasive procedures and improve existing surgical procedures.
Our minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures are clinically proven to reduce treatment and recovery time.
InMode has leveraged its medically-accepted RF technologies to offer a comprehensive line of platforms that will enable us to capitalize on a multi-billion dollar market opportunity across several categories of surgical specialty such as plastic surgery, genecology, dermatology, ENT’s and ophthalmologists.
With the Forma Plus system, a radiofrequency current flows between electrodes on a handheld device to create and apply heat to your skin. Using the device, we are able to slowly heat your skin to a sustained temperature of 41°C – 43°C, which is the optimum temperature to cause your old collagen to unwind and new collagen to be formed as the body works to repair the heat damage beneath the surface. Plus uses Smart RFTM technology to keep the temperature within a precise range. It reads your skin surface temperature a staggering 1,000 times per second and cuts off the heat at the optimum temperature to protect your skin. As new collagen forms in the days and weeks after your treatment, you will notice that your skin becomes tighter and smoother, giving your body a more toned and sculpted appearance. Plus is particularly effective for tightening lax skin on your abdomen, arms (especially ‘bat wings’), inner and outer thighs, back and knees.
A Forma Plus treatment typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes, although it will depend on the size of the area to be treated. With most people, we see a 20% increase in collagen production and skin elasticity as a result of Forma Plus treatment. Although you should see some improvement after one treatment, we usually recommend that you have a weekly treatment over six weeks for the best results. Collagen build-up occurs slowly, so you should notice your skin tone continues to improve for several weeks after each treatment.
Because Forma Plus delivers heat to your skin in a highly controlled way, this is a comfortable procedure. Your skin will feel warm but most people liken it to a hot stone massage. This treatment has no downtime, although you may notice a slight redness in the treated area, which should resolve itself within a couple of hours. You can return to your daily activities as soon as your treatment is over.
Forma Plus is ideal for use in conjunction with Fractora skin resurfacing [E1] or Lucca broadband light treatments for brown spots, broken vessels, fine lines, and wrinkles. We offer a number of other treatments and services to support you with weight management and body sculpting.
