Forma: What Is It?

Forma is one of our most popular procedures here at Snowberry Lane, and one that our professional and highly trained team expertly perform on a daily basis, with fantastic and long lasting results. So we thought that we would go into detail about what Forma actually is and what it does.


What is Forma?
Forma is a facial treatment, where the tissue is slightly heated using radio frequency technology.

What does it do?
The heating up of the tissue promotes the growth of collagen, which naturally maintains the skins elasticity. This increase of collagen production causes the skin to regain firmness with lasting results.

What happens?
A thin layer of gel is applied to the face, and then a specially designed radio frequency applicator is used to heat the skin up to a level at where the collagen will be stimulated. One of our highly experienced tea perform this procedure

How fast are the results?
Initially your skin will be red and look a little tight, however this will only last for a few hours. After this, you will be able to notice the results immediately.

How many treatments are needed?
Ideally, a Forma is performed weekly for a period of 8 weeks in order to produce the best possible results.

Does it hurt?
Since Forma is a non-invasive treatment, there is minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. When the radio frequency heat is applied, you may feel a slight stinging sensation, however this is completely normal and not uncomfortable.

Is there any risk?
Since this treatment is non-invasive there is practically no risk of any complications as there will be no risk of infection or healing problems. It is also practically hypo-allergenic meaning that it is even suitable for people with sensitive skin.
