Skin Tightening and Collagen Remodelling for the Face, Neck and Body with Forma and Plus RF

Discover firmer, smoother, more lifted skin with Forma (for the face and neck) and Plus (for the body) Radio Frequency Skin Tightening. Production of collagen and elastin fibres starts to slow down as early as our mid-twenties, contributing to skin aging, sagging and loss of elasticity over time. Forma is a zero-downtime treatment that helps to tighten and tone the skin. It does this by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres, giving the skin a more youthful elasticity and firmness.


Forma and Plus Radio Frequency (RF) use a bi-polar current to create uniform heating and contraction in the deep layers of the skin. It is the only RF technology to use a built-in temperature control to optimize the best treatment temperature, creating a comfortable thermal experience, and also ensuring client safety at all times. This deep heating and contraction results in an instant tightening effect, and with a series of treatments, a lasting improvement to the skin’s overall elasticity and tone. It is a pain-free treatment that most will compare to the sensation of a hot stone massage. It really is a ‘lunchtime’ treatment, as you can apply makeup immediately after and return to most daily activities right away. Forma treatments can be performed on the face, jawline and neck area and Plus treatment can be performed on most areas of the body. Both use the same bipolar radio frequency. Forma is a smaller handpiece designed for small areas of the face and neck and Plus is a larger handpiece better suited to areas of the body such as the abdomen, arms and legs.
