In you want a tighter look to your skin in order to regain a more youthful appearance, consider skin tightening via Forma™ and Forma™ Plus. This non-invasive treatment promotes skin tightening from the inside by stimulating the growth of collagen.
Collagen is present in the lower layers of the skin and serves the purpose of helping to hold things together. It also gives the skin fullness. As you start to age, the level of collagen begins to fade. This is because the body does not continue to produce it at the same level as it did during youth. When the collagen is not present in the same quantities as before, the skin will become loose. This leads to sagging and the development of lines and wrinkles. These, of course, are among the most visible signs of aging.
If you think about ways in which your skin may be tightened to get rid of those wrinkles, the idea of a facelift or tummy tuck might come to mind. For many people, the thoughts of having cosmetic surgery are quickly dismissed due to the invasive nature of the procedure. They view the procedure as something that is not worth the risk of complications and not worth the downtime and associated discomforts while recovering from the procedure. If this lines up with your way of thinking, you should be reminded that there are non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening alternatives available through Forma™ and Forma™ Plus.
Forma™ and Forma™ Plus skin tightening work by taking advantage of radiofrequency energy. The heat created by the RF energy stimulates collagen production. It basically works by tricking the body into thinking it has suffered an injury, even though it has not. This then kicks the healing processes into action, and additional collagen is the result. Forma™ is designed to treat small areas like the face, whereas Forma™ Plus is designed to treat larger areas.
Since the lack of collagen contributes to things like sagging, lines and wrinkles that are signs of loose skin, the presence of higher levels of collagen will contribute to skin that is free from these signs because it is tighter. As such, non-invasive skin tightening can help you to have smoother skin.
After receiving these skin tightening treatments, it may take some time for you to see the full effects. This is because it takes time for the collagen to return to the higher levels necessary to give the skin its maximum fullness. There are some immediate benefits from the therapy as well, however. The natural reaction of the skin in response to the RF energy is to tighten. This happens as soon as the treatment is given, so there are both short-term and long-term benefits of the treatment.
