Non Ablative Skin Tightening

Pick those jowls up off the floor

Forma and Forma Plus are radio frequency skin treatments available at Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine and designed to stimulate collagen and contraction in even the deepest layers of the skin.* Treatments deliver smoother, younger looking skin nearly anywhere on the body.* Most patients who are bothered by wrinkles, loose skin and lack of firmness are candidates for Forma, including those with ethnic skin. It is ideal for people looking for a non-invasive way of smoothing and tightening the skin.*

*Results may vary from person to person.

Non-ablative Radio Frequency (RF) = Neocollagenesis

The superior choice for the treatment of loose skin.*

As collagen production declines during our 30s and beyond, the skin begins to suffer from the effects of a thinner dermal layer, underlying structural changes and effects from our ever present gravity. Fight back! This versatile treatment stimulates the formation of new collagen and improves the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting and remarkable results.* We love neocollagenesis and so will you.*


*Results may vary from person to person.

Recommended: Series of 6-8 treatments

Why? Forma stimulates the formation of new collagen and improves the skin’s elasticity for remarkable results that last.* At Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine our technology operates at an optimal thermal level, without concerns of hot spots or under treatment.* Built-in temperature controls allow for the attainment of clinically proven optimal epidermal temperatures.

ACE technology is critical to noticeable, successful and long lasting results:*

This maximizes the outcome of treatments while lowering the risk of adverse reactions.* Built-in safety features include a highly advanced temperature sensor that is constantly analyzing skin temperature 1000 times per second. The systems software works together with the temperature sensor to ensure the exact amount of energy is delivered to the skin, preventing under-treatment, as well as ‘hot spots’ caused by over treatment.

What is the difference in Forma and Forma Plus?

Forma and Forma Plus are both designed to treat lax, sagging skin. Forma, however, is used to treat small treatment areas on the face, while Forma Plus is used to address larger areas on the body, such as ‘bat wings’ on the arms, excess skin on the abdomen and sagging skin above and around the knees.* Forma Plus is especially helpful to people with sagging skin caused by significant weight loss.*

What should I expect during and after a Sherwood Forma treatment?

Forma and Forma Plus are completely painless, in-office procedures, though some patients may notice a tightening or heating sensation during treatment.* Most people require between 6 and 8 sessions to achieve desired results, with the most treatments reserved for those with more challenging treatment areas.* Forma and Forma Plus do not have any associated downtime, leaving patients free to resume any activity after their appointments.* Patients say the procedures feels like a nice hot stone massage.* As mentioned above, multiple sessions are required for the best results, however you should expect your progress to improve with each visit.* Forma is not a permanent solution to sagging skin, however a maintenance program will help maintain your results long-term.* You can expect to start seeing results immediately, although the skin will continue to improve for several months following treatment.*
