Radiofrequency Skin tightening: Forma
Discover your skin’s younger looking glow.
What is FORMA Radiofrequency skin tightening?
Forma is a Health Canada approved bipolar radiofrequency technology that is safe to use in all skin types. Forma RF safely targets the deep layers of the skin to stimulate the production and growth of collagen fibers, resulting in a radiant, restored youthful appearance.
At Captivating Aesthetics we only offer the most recent and advanced treatments that are Health Canada approved. After carefully discussing your treatment goals during a face to face consultation, we create a clean and safe treatment environment for those patients that are new or known to medical microneedling.
The benefit of Inmode’s FORMA is that the technology is “color blind”, and therefore safe to use on all areas of the body in all skintypes*. The unique properties of these devices allow us to safely treat even darker skin tones. Any area that can benefit from skin rejuvenation and tightening can benefit from FORMA.
How does FORMA radiofrequency skin-tightening work?

Process & Treatment
Typically, weekly sessions performed over a period of 6 weeks is recommended. Based on your skin goals and needs, you may be treated with fewer or longer session over a longer period of time. The exact treatment schedule will be determined during your initial consultation. *Certain skin types may need to follow a pre-treatment skincare regimen in order to minimize risk of hyperpigmentation, and to ensure optimal results.
Forma can safely be added on to your monthly in-office facial to boost your treatment results. (memberships are offered at Captivating)
How quickly will you see results: Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically most noticeable results are seen 6-9 weeks after the treatment. Actual skin improvement continues up to three months after the final treatment
The actual process of getting Morpheus Microneedling is simple and time efficient.
At Captivating Aesthetics, the first step is to book a consultation with our team experts. During this consultation a brief medical and relevant aesthetic history will be taken. You will have the chance to discuss your treatment concerns, your treatment goals, your fears and concerns in regards to the actual treatment itself. Your full treatment plan, along with expected maintenance will then be discussed.
A detailed series of photographs will be taken at every visit to compare your results to your baseline pictures, as well as monitoring progression of results.
Same day treatment is often possible and is usually discussed at the time of booking the consultation.
After booking our friendly team will send you a link to our patient portal, which allows you to complete the necessary forms in the comfort and safety of your own home. Once you arrive for your appointment, our front office team will get a set of baseline photos, and your skin-technician will meet with you to ensure you understand the procedure before commencing.
Forma offers a non-invasive, pain-free, no downtime way to stimulate collagen formation and skin tightening. It typically is described as feeling like a “ hot-stone massage”. Some redness may be seen immediately after the procedure.
Photographs may be done immediately after the procedure. You will also receive specific after-care directions. The most important is hydration and avoiding direct sun exposure
Mineral makeup can be applied right after the treatment
As each individual has very specific goals and needs, every treatment plan differs. This will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation. Prices range from $250 and up. Membership and Package pricing is available.
