Forma To Improve Skin Laxity
As we age, our skin begins to sag and lose its elasticity. This is due to a number of factors, including decreased production of collagen and elastin, sun damage, and gravity.
While there are many products and treatments available that promise to improve skin laxity, not all of them are effective.
One treatment that has been shown to be effective is Forma skin tightening. If you’re ready for a treatment, yours can be performed at our doctor’s office in less than an hour, with results showing quickly.
Forma for Neck and Jowls
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and youthful appearance. This is particularly noticeable in the neck and jowl areas.
While there are a number of cosmetic procedures available to improve these areas, one of the most popular and least invasive is Forma skin tightening.
Forma for Body Contouring
Regarding body contouring treatments to restore a youthful look, few are as effective as Forma skin tightening.
Forma skin tightening can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. In addition, it can also improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.
Can Forma Be Used To Remove Age Spots?
Age spots, also known as liver spots or sunspots, are flat, brownish spots that typically appear on the face, hands, and arms. While age spots are typically harmless, they can be cosmetically displeasing to you.
In fact, many people around you may also find them unsightly and want you to remove them.
Age spots can be removed with laser therapy or surgery, but these treatments can be expensive and may not be available in all areas. As such, a relatively new method that is gaining popularity is Forma.
Forma has been shown to not only be able to tighten the skin, but also to be able to reduce the appearance of age spots.
A study published in the journal “Clinical Cosmetic Investigative Dermatology” showed that Forma was able to reduce the appearance of age spots by up to 52 percent.
