Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity
Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in skin tone and texture irregularities. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined, with a reduction in wrinkles.
Forma can be used on both the face and body.
It is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post-procedure, which subsides within a few hours. This is why it is sometimes referred as the “lunchtime procedure” meaning you can do it on your lunch break and return to work that day.
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment.
MORPHEUS8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
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.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONATED ENERGY?
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.
CAN ANYONE USE MORPHEUS8?
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.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF RF ENERGY?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments.
WHEN CAN I PUT MAKE-UP ON AFTER TREATMENT?
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.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
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.
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions.
In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
- Sun damage
- Vascular lesions
Lumeccca can used in all areas of the body. But the most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands and arms.
WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to
sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?
During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin
are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week
afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and
disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the
severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over
time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as
spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
