A Step By Step Guide To Forma: A Skin Tightening Treatment

share this post


As we age, our skin’s elasticity decreases, leading to skin laxity (sagging skin). While there are various treatments available to address this concern, one option that’s gaining popularity is skin tightening with Forma technology.

Forma uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in mild to moderate skin tightening.

In this step-by-step guide, we’ll explore the Forma skin tightening process and provide tips for the right preparation and aftercare to help you achieve optimal results.

Let’s dive in!

What is a Skin Tightening (Forma) Treatment?

The Forma Skin Tightening Treatment is a cutting-edge technology that harnesses the power of radiofrequency to improve the appearance of mild to moderately loose, sagging skin. This non-invasive treatment stimulates collagen production deep within the skin, resulting in firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

Forma is a safe and effective way to combat the effects of skin laxity without the need for surgery or downtime. With its innovative technology and proven results, Forma has quickly become a popular choice for those seeking a non-invasive solution for tightening loose skin.

Before the Treatment

Before your Forma Skin Tightening Treatment, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, it’s important to find a reputable provider who is experienced in administering Forma. You should also schedule a consultation beforehand to discuss your specific skin concerns and goals and to determine if skin tightening (Forma) is the right treatment for you.

On the day of your treatment, it’s recommended that you come in barefaced (i.e., with no makeup on). It’s also important to stay hydrated and avoid caffeine, as this can make your skin more sensitive.

Taking these simple precautions before your treatment can help ensure the best possible results and a more comfortable experience.

The Treatment Process

The Forma Skin Tightening Treatment itself typically takes 30-45 minutes. Here’s what you can expect:

Your provider will cleanse and prepare your skin for treatment.
A small amount of gel will be applied to the treatment area to help conduct the radiofrequency energy better.
Your provider will use the Forma handpiece to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy to the treatment area, gradually heating the skin to a comfortable temperature.

This process stimulates collagen production deep within the skin, resulting in firmer, tighter skin over time.
You may feel a warming sensation during the treatment, but it should be tolerable.
After the treatment, there’s no downtime, so you can return to your normal activities immediately.

With the Forma Skin Tightening Treatment, you can achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance with minimal discomfort or downtime.

After the Treatment

After your Skin Tightening (Forma) Treatment, you may notice a slight improvement in the appearance of your skin. However, optimal results are typically seen after a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart. Your provider will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals.

It’s important to care for your skin properly after the treatment to maintain your results. This includes avoiding sun exposure, using a broad-spectrum sunscreen, and keeping your skin well-hydrated.

Your provider may also recommend specific skincare products to help enhance and prolong your results.


The Forma Skin Tightening Treatment is a safe, effective way to address sagging, mild to moderately loose skin, and skin laxity.
