F orma is the first auto-adjusting, non-invasive, thermal skin treatment for deep and uniform tissue stimulation. Forma uses radio-frequency power that flows uniformly between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience with immediate and subsequent contraction. There is no downtime in this effective “lunch-time” procedure that will make anyone look years younger!
Forma treatment is such an effective skin tightening method, because it is able to use radio frequency (RF) energy that is specifically tuned to target your fat cells, and is delivered by a precision application head that is specifically designed to match the contours of your face. Using radio frequency energy, it is able to stimulate the formation of new collagen, the body’s natural skin plumping mechanism, to improve the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting results.
The technology is FDA-approved, and unlike other lasers and machines, it can be used on any skin type. As a patient, all you need to do is to sit back, relax, and enjoy a painless treatment with only a mild warmth and the movement of the treatment head to disturb your peace.
Forma laser is helpful in loose skin treatment, it offers the ability to contour the body with non invasive skin tightening procedure. Body contouring effects are achieve by the radio frequency current which flows between the electrodes on the specially designed head, creating a warming effect beneath the skin. The resulting heat is maintained at comfortable levels, and there are no concerns of hot spots, pain, or under-treatment of affected areas as a result. Through years of science and innovation, the technology has gained the exclusive capacity for prolonged heat exposure at scientifically proven therapeutic temperatures which can be reached quickly, providing impressive results in a short length of time.
The Forma treatment system by InMode offers two treatment head sizes that allow multiple areas of the body to be treated.
Typically, it is used to treat areas of the face and neck, which usually takes about 45 minutes each. Other popular locations on the body are the thighs (front and/or back), hips, and buttocks, as well as the stomach or waist. Lax or flabby skin under the arms is also a popular location that many of our clients have achieved success.
The FaceTite™ procedure causes the skin to tighten by 40% instantly, the skin will look and feel better immediately and though the results are instant there will be some swelling for approximately seven days afterwards. Over a period of three to six weeks as new collagen is formed there will be a continuous improvement.
The FaceTite™ hand-piece is designed to be minimally invasive creating skin tightening with virtually no scarring and no stitches required, this makes the recovery process even quicker.
FaceTite™ is based on the successful technology behind Bodytite™ liposuction. FaceTite™ is a new form of energy-assisted skin tightening, using the computer-controlled application of radiofrequency energy.How long does FaceTite™ last?
The treatment result from FaceTite™ will last up to about five years, similar to a mini Face Lift™ and thereafter the skin will age naturally, though genetics and lifestyle may affect the lifespan of the FaceTite™ or any other Face Lift procedure.
The Forehead (giving a brow lift), Cheeks, Jowls, Neck, Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth) in fact just about any area above the shoulders can be treated with the new
No. A local anaesthetic is administered which reduces discomfort to minimal levels. As with BodyTite™ – FaceTite™ does not require a general anaesthetic which reduces downtime, no overnight stay is required and treatments can be performed within the day.
Normally Yes, though this would depend upon the skin laxity and your desired results.
Yes, BodyTite™ uses aspiration so will give different results to FaceTite™ but the three procedures can be used in conjunction with each other or alone, this will be discussed at your FaceTite™ consultation with your Cosmetic Surgeon who will advise whether a combination of treatments may be the best option and whether these treatments would be carried out together or as separate procedures.
FaceTite™ uses the same technology as is used in BodyTite™ – RFAL™ (Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction) except with FaceTite™ there is no aspiration so the technology used is RF – Radio Frequency. RF or Radio frequency is used in MRI machines and many other medical treatments and has been used to treat patients for over 75 years, Invasix FaceTite™ is the Facial Cosmetic Surgery Revolution that now brings this proven technology to Cosmetic Surgery.
FaceTite™, as with BodyTite™ is exclusive to the Invasix platform and provides the Cosmetic Surgeon with constant feedback in order to monitor and maintain the amount of RF Energy and Heat used during a procedure and has many in built safety features to ensure that patient safety is paramount.
In the FaceTite handpiece, RFAL energy is deployed from an internal cannula to an external electrode, generating focused energy into the adipose tissue and fatty areas. The directional application of RFAL is precise and controlled to heat specific targets without thermal injury to surrounding tissue. Furthermore, the geometric design of the handpiece and size of the electrodes provides an exact science to how much heat is generated on the skin’s surface, preventing unwanted thermal build-up.
The innovative development of a simultaneous aspiration-coagulation handpiece removes the hot liquefied adipose tissue immediately, allowing the FaceTite to become a one-step procedure providing a quicker treatment, at least 4x faster than other laser assisted devices.
Patient will see substantial fat reduction and body firming results. Patients with skin laxity who do not want an excisional procedure or the lumpy irregular appearance caused by liposuction will appreciate this added benefit.
BodyTite is a sophisticated device using patented radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL™) technology for effective body contouring and significant skin contraction. The first and only RFAL device on the market, BodyTite combines adipose tissue and blood vessel coagulation, simultaneous aspiration with precise dermal heating to achieve fast, safe, consistent and uniform results.
Anyone with excess skin laxity that desires improvement but does not want the scar or downtime of an invasive excisional procedure would benefit from bodytite.
The procedure can be performed awake or under anesthesia depending on the patient’s preference or if other procedures were being performed at the same time. If the area(s) being treated are large, you may be more comfortable being asleep.
Morpheus8 is a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology for fractional resurfacing that stimulates collagen production. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. There is little to no damage to the dermis and this procedure provides an extremely uniform effect.
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment. The most commonly treated areas include the face and neck, as well as the abdomen which is beneficial for tightening loose skin with underlying fatty tissue.
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions.
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is common with other resurfacing methods.
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled manner to revitalize the collagen. This treatment helps to improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
Yes, Morpheus8 can be combined with PRP for optimal results.
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
