For superficial and subdermal remodeling of the skin’s collagen, Morpheus8, Fractora and Forma are the most effective treatments. Using non-surgical radiofrequency technology, these unique devices penetrate deep into the skin and fat to tighten the skin, contouring the face and the body. All three devices are safe on ALL skin types (Fitzpatrick I – VI) with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Aging skin is revived by stimulating new collagen, which improves elasticity. Patients can expect improvement in overall skin complexion, including smoother wrinkles, smaller pores, acne reduction, and improvement in scarring. Mostly used on the face and neck, Morpheus8, Fractora and Forma can also be applied to other areas of the body, such as the arms, abdomen, thighs, or any other part of the body that could benefit from tissue contraction. Cellulite, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and stretch marks are also conditions that can be treated with Morpheus8 and Fractora.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the surface of the skin one hour prior to both Morpehus8 and Fractora. Each treatment is completed in under one hour. The downtime varies from two days to one week during which sun exposure and all antibiotics, retinoids, photosensitivity inducing medications must be avoided. Patients will need a minimum of three treatments at least four weeks apart in order to achieve desired results. For severe scarring and deep wrinkles, more treatments may be necessary.
Forma is a completely painless treatment, with no need for a topical anesthetic. There is no downtime associated with this non-invasive skin remodeling procedure. The treatment time varies from 30 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes, depending on the treatment location. The treatment protocol for most patients is a series of six treatments, spaced one week apart. Severe skin laxity will likely need additional treatments. Immediately following a Forma treatment, patients can expect a brighter and tighter appearance. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, and Ashley Tisdale, regularly post about their sleek, contoured faces and bodies after Forma.
