Fractora™ Forma™ Skin Tightening

Over time, the body begins to go through its natural aging process, which means that collagen production slows down, the skin loses its elasticity, and you begin to look older than you are with hollowed-out areas of the face and sagging skin. At Northwest Aesthetics, we offer Fractora™ Forma™ skin tightening to decrease the appearance of lines and tighten and lift the skin for a more youthful appearance. Forma™ is a safe, effective treatment option for non-invasive skin tightening.




Ideal candidates for Forma™ skin tightening are men and women who are experiencing sagging skin on the face, neck, and body who wish to tighten their skin without undergoing traditional lift surgeries. This treatment is suitable for many parts of the body, including the forehead, eyelids, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and jowls. Forma™ Plus can also be used on other areas of the body such as on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.



The Fractora™ Forma™ skin tightening treatment uses the latest laser technology to target sagging skin on the face and neck for a firmer, more defined appearance. The Forma™ radiofrequency (RF) technology heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled, safe way. This process stimulates the body’s natural response to produce more collagen, which aids in skin contraction, resulting in a more refined skin texture and tone and an improvement in the appearance of sagging skin.

A cool, clear gel is applied to the treatment area, and a radiofrequency handpiece is smoothed over the treatment area, delivering the RF energy and heat. Forma™ is a painless procedure, and many patients say it feels similar to a hot stone massage. Each treatment head has a temperature gauge built into it to maintain control and make certain that no areas are under or overtreated.


For optimal results, it is recommended that sessions are performed for eight weeks. However, the recommended numbers of treatments also depend on the degree of laxity, which may require additional treatment sessions.



Patients may experience mild redness, which will subside a few hours after their Forma™ treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment. It is very important that a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen is used on the face always.



Patients will notice gradual results with each treatment as more collagen is produced. Within one to two months of finishing the treatment series, patients will be able to see noticeably tighter skin and can expect to look more youthful.


Fractora Forma treatments are available at Northwest Aesthetics Bellevue and Kent, WA locations.
