Stretch Marks & Anti-aging Q & A
We use a combination of powerful technologies to tighten the face and body if needed and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Stretch marks (striae) are indented streaks that often appear on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks and thighs. Over time they become less noticeable. Stretch marks are particularly common in pregnant women, especially during the last trimester. They are also common after significant weight loss that occurs after Bariatric surgery.
WHAT IS FORMA?
Forma is a skin and tissue remodeling technology equipped with a subdermal heating applicator. Radiofrequency travels via electrodes to deliver a non-invasive and pain-free treatment, and its controls allow the device to reach optimal temperatures. Forma effectively treats the forehead, upper and lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls and neck.
- Forma has a thermal temperature sensor built into the handpiece allowing clinicians to acquire skin temperature in real-time.
- Forma provides unprecedented safety of RF delivery. The “cut off temperature” feature reduces RF energy automatically when the handpiece senses that the required skin temperature has been reached.
- Clinical evidence suggests prolonged exposure to temperature above 40°C is advantageous for optimal clinical outcomes.
- There is no downtime in this effective “lunch-time” procedure that will make anyone look years younger!
- Safe on all skin types.
Forma remodels the dermis by delivering uniform heating to the deep layers of skin.
Forma improves skin texture, addressing delicate areas of the face for desired results.
Forma uses bipolar radiofrequency heating, ideal for remodeling the skin for a more youthful and natural appearance.
Morpheus8 is a deep fractional remodeling device that addresses the adipose tissue (fat) on the face and body. Ideal areas of treatment are the lower face, that may have jowling, and areas of the body, like arms or bra fat rolls. Morpheus8 provides radiant and beautiful contours for a smoother and naturally beautiful appearance.
Our remodeling solutions help improve skin texture and complexion to enhance the skin’s overall appearance. Patients can revive aging skin by stimulating the formation of new collagen to improve elasticity. Patients often can feel results immediately during and after the treatment. The best part is that the results look and feel completely natural.
The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, active acne or acne scarring are also suitable for treatment.
