Several of my patients brought to my attention an article in the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal: “A gentler turning back of the clock.” They found it amusing that these “new” energy treatments had just arrived in New York, while we have been offering the most advanced radio-frequency treatments to our patients for two years. This led me to review our experience with these useful therapies, so that I can provide an up-to-date summary of what they can and cannot do.
We have been very pleased with the consistency and quality of skin tightening that we can obtain for our patients with mild to moderate degrees of looseness of skin in the face, neck, upper abdomen, and knees. We make use of the Fractora Firm® technology and have developed a treatment protocol around this.
We have developed a technique of non-surgical skin tightening that produces consistent benefits in various zones of the face and neck as well as in other body areas. We utilize the fractora firm® technology as the platform for our treatment methods. This technology has only recently become available in the United States.
Forma is a non-surgical method that can tighten loose skin in the cheek, jowl, neck, and other body areas. In our opinion, the Forma technology offers an optimum combination of safety, comfort, and meaningful results.
