Forma Q&A

What happens to my skin as I age?

There are several forces that contribute to aging skin, starting with exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. This exposure breaks down the connective fibers in your skin and prematurely ages your skin cells, which leads to wrinkles and fine lines.

Another factor is the natural loss of collagen in your skin as you age. When you were 20, your collagen was at an all-time high, but the production of this structural protein begins to wane in adulthood. This decline is slow, at first, with a 1% loss of collagen production each year. But the cumulative effect can begin to take its toll, leaving your skin to succumb to gravity and begin to sag.

And for women who are transitioning through perimenopause and menopause, the loss of collagen is acute as hormone levels decline.

How does Forma work?

Forma is an innovative technology that revitalizes and tightens your skin by calling upon the best resource for the job — your own collagen. With Forma, your cosmetic expert at Erasing Time delivers bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy into your skin, which heats your tissue to just the right level to create a mild healing response. And at the head of this response is renewed collagen production.

How long is a Forma procedure?

A Forma procedure takes less than an hour, and there’s no downtime afterward, which is why it’s the most requested service at Erasing Time. The treatment itself is painless, as the RF energy passes through the outer layer of your skin to heat your tissue below.

Forma features auto-adjusting technology, which allows your registered nurse to deliver uniform energy at the right level in your tissue.

When will I see results after my Forma procedure?

Another wonderful aspect of a Forma treatment is that your results are both immediate and gradual. After your Forma treatment at Erasing time, your skin contracts in response to the RF energy, giving you a more youthful appearance right from the start.

And over the weeks following your treatment, your tissue rebuilds healthy new collagen, which will provide renewed strength and tone.
