Additional Information

What are the benefits of FORMA®?
  • Tightens the skin
  • Improves skin quality
How does FORMA® work?

An electromagnetic device is used to generate heat to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This leads to tightening of the skin with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment can be used wherever skin appears to be lacking in elasticity and vibrancy. 

What complementary treatments are available?

Forma is aimed at rejuvenating and tightening the skin. For optimum results this treatment is best paired with a comprehensive skin care regimen tailored per skin type. Skin boosters such as Profhilo® will help improve collagen production and skin elasticity. HydraFacial is also recommended.

For those wishing to improve skin texture and target fine lines, you may wish to speak to our highly experienced team at Montrose about SkinPen®, PRP treatment or lasers.
