Forma radiofrequency treatments

Forma is actually not a laser, but rather it is a bipolar radiofrequency device that generates controlled dermal heating.  It is an effective, non-invasive treatment for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.  You would need a series of 4–6 weekly forma treatments for the best results. Hope that helps.
