What is Skin Tightening with Forma Plus?
As we age, our skin loses its collagen and elastin from years of sun exposure as well as the natural aging process. This gives the skin an unwanted crepey or saggy appearance. For many years effective skin tightening procedures have been elusive.
Tightening skin requires collagen stimulation and this can be achieved with lasers, ultrasound, and now radio frequency. Technology has continued to advance but older treatments such as ultrasound and lasers have been painful, only moderately effective. Now, with radiofrequency skin tightening with Forma Plus, you can have great results with no pain or downtime.
The most common areas to use the Forma Plus are the crepey skin of the arm, abdomen, and above the knee, but most other areas of the body that you are experiencing laxity can also be treated.
The Forma Plus Procedure
JanigaMD’s is excited to be able to offer the most advanced noninvasive tightening technology currently available today, radiofrequency tightening with Contoura Forma Plus. Contoura Forma Plus is bipolar radiofrequency which delivers heat and radio frequency synergistically to the skin to provide maximum tightening with no pain and no downtime. This advanced technology has been revolutionary for noninvasive skin tightening.
Forma is a new skin tightening technique to replenish collagen and elastin.
At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.
Recovery & Results
This procedure does not require any topical numbing as it is painless; you will feel a slight warming sensation of the skin as the wand is applied to the treatment zone. There’ll be some redness of the treated skin afterward, but no downtime is associated with this treatment.
As with most non-invasive procedures, a package of treatments is recommended. As we lose collagen as we age, you may desire to repeat treatments in the future to maintain your results.
