Target Stubborn Fat with Forma Plus

Wrinkles, lines, folds, and loose skin can have a significant negative impact on your appearance. To combat these signs of aging, patients can choose a skin tightening procedure to rejuvenate their look.

While wrinkles and folds of loose skin are often most noticeable on the face, many patients are frustrated with their appearance all over the body. However, if you prefer to avoid surgery, Dr. Patricia Berbari and her team provide Forma Plus skin tightening at our Gatineau, QC, cosmetic practice to smooth out lines and excess skin on the back, arms, and other areas of the body.

What Areas Can Forma Plus Target?

While standard Forma skin tightening focuses on smoothing the appearance of the face and neck, Forma Plus is intended to address aesthetic concerns on larger areas of the body. Some of the most common areas for this type of treatment include the:

  • Stomach
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs 
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks

Forma Plus offers natural-looking enhancements in texture and skin tone irregularities. In fact, most individuals report that their skin looks and feels smoother after just one treatment. Best of all, Forma Plus is appropriate for use on all skin types.

Forma Plus heats up the skin and underlying tissue to stimulate new collagen production, which leaves your skin looking smooth and refreshed. 

How Does Forma Plus Work?

Forma Plus uses the same basic technology as standard Forma skin tightening: radio-frequency power causes skin contraction in deep layers of tissue, stimulating new collagen production and improving skin elasticity. The advanced technology behind Forma Plus allows for maximum stimulation of the skin with optimal safety and effectiveness. Because no area is over-treated or under-treated, patients can enjoy consistent results.

More than one session is often necessary to achieve the desired results, though this will depend on the severity of your skin condition. Most individuals require a few Forma Plus treatments, with results becoming apparent after the very first session.

What to Expect during Treatment

During Forma Plus treatment at our office, Dr. Berbari will clean and dry the skin and then mark the targeted areas. She then delivers radio frequencies to the skin and the tissue beneath through a small wand. The handheld device will be moved slowly in circles over the skin. This process actively disrupts the cellular structures of the collagen bands, then stimulates the body’s natural collagen production with gentle heat. Most patients describe the sensation as a warm massage. 

Like standard Forma skin tightening, Forma plus is best-suited to minor to moderate wrinkles and looseness.

Because Forma Plus technology gives an accurate and consistent skin temperature reading, the entire process can be completed without causing discomfort. Essentially, the device heats up enough to deliver accurate results, but not enough to damage the skin’s surface or the surrounding tissues.

Alternative Treatments

Like standard Forma skin tightening, Forma plus is best-suited to minor to moderate wrinkles and looseness. For more extensive cosmetic concerns, Dr. Berbari may recommend traditional surgical alternatives like a liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift. These treatment options are incredibly effective, although you will need to plan for downtime after your procedure. During an initial consultation at our practice, Dr. Berbari can help you determine which treatment option will be most effective for you.
