These days, everyone wants to look and feel young, beautiful and on top of the world. Luckily, there’s no shortage of ways to achieve this, with various treatments promising excellent results for eliminating the signs of ageing, so you can live out the next decades like a fine wine; ageing with grace. But what’s the best treatment for you?

The fact is, going under the knife is a pretty major decision, and it takes a lot of time to recover and achieve the look you want. But why put yourself through such a gruelling — and expensive — experience when you can look and feel your best with non-invasive treatments?

Forma is the latest non-surgical skin treatment that provides women of all ages beautiful and natural results. Yes, it’s possible to get rid of pesky wrinkles and spots once and for all. Get in on this age-defying treatment now to look — and feel — younger than you’ve ever before.

What is Forma?

Forma treatment is the future of healthier, younger-looking skin. Powered by cutting-edge radiofrequency technology, Forma can tone and tighten the skin in virtually no time, achieving an age-defying lift for wrinkly, sagging skin around the face and the rest of the body. Forma works like a facelift, but without the hassle of invasive surgery.

The best part is, Forma is designed with all skin types in mind, providing reliable results across skin tones and degrees of sagging and wrinkling. With a prescribed number of sessions, you can easily see crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, sagging skin in the neck and jowls, and smile lines disappear for good.

For the rest of the body, this means saying goodbye to flabby arms or bat wings, as well as stretch marks and loose skin in the abdomen, thighs, and knees.

How does Forma Work?

Forma treatments are powered by radiofrequency energy delivered deep into the layers of the skin. Feeling like a gentle heat on the surface — just like getting a massage — Forma stimulates collagen production that slows down ageing by restoring the skin’s natural elasticity. The result is tighter skin that looks and feels younger than ever before, effectively smoothing out wrinkles and lifting sagging areas for good.

In the process, Forma also contributes to smooth and clear skin as spots and pigmentation fade when the skin is able to rebuild with new collagen fibres underneath. The best part is, you can achieve all of these beautiful, lasting results without the hassle of invasive procedures and prolonged recovery times.

How many sessions do I need?

Depending on the degree of your wrinkles and sagging skin, you’ll need a number of treatments to achieve optimal results and erase the signs of ageing. While mild to moderate wrinkles are likely to fade in just a few treatments, severe ones might take more sessions to be effectively erased or eased out.

But not to worry — each session takes less than an hour to complete from start to finish, making healthy, younger-looking skin a breeze to fit into your busy schedule. It’s essentially a lunchtime lift.

What Should I Expect During my Forma Treatment?

At the start of each session, the medical aesthetician will apply a cool conductive gel that activates the radiofrequency sensors in the Forma machine. This allows radiofrequency energy to reach deep into the layers of the skin, enabling effective delivery to activate collagen production.

Once this is done, the aesthetician will massage the wand over different areas of your face and body, focusing on areas with wrinkles and sagging skin. These include the upper and lower eyelids, cheeks, jowl, and neck. For full-body treatments, these include bat wings in the arms, cellulite and sagging skin in the thighs, and the stomach area.

This process lasts for about 15 minutes on each side of the face, and once all the areas are treated, a cool towel will be placed to wash away the gel and soothe your skin from the heat. You’ll also enjoy cream and sunscreen for added protection as you go about the rest of your day.

It’s normal to see your face flushed for a while and feel warm to the touch, but these should go away completely after a few hours. After that, you’ll feel much calmer, just like after a much-needed pampering massage.

When Can I See Results from my Forma Treatment?

The best part about Forma treatments is that they don’t take long to peel back the layers of your skin and reveal that youthful glow hiding under wrinkles. Unlike invasive procedures that require extended recovery periods to eliminate swelling and stitches to dissolve or be removed, Forma can produce results almost instantly.

A lot of women with mild to moderate wrinkles and sagging skin notice tightened, smoother skin after each Forma treatment.

Plus, with quickly fading redness and a full pampering, coming in for each session does feel like a real treat. With instantly visible results it’s a worthy investment in healthier, younger-looking skin. With each Forma treatment, skin feels soft and smooth, with visibly even complexion, and a natural glow.

It’s time that you finally look and feel your best. Pamper yourself with Forma treatments, and erase the signs of ageing that are keeping your inner youthful glow from radiating.

Easy ways to reduce wrinkles for beautiful, younger-looking skin

5 Easy Ways to Reduce Wrinkles for Beautiful, Younger-Looking Skin

By | Advice | No Comments

You’re beautiful at any age, but it’s true what they say — it’s hard to look good when you don’t feel good. And who can blame the modern woman, with the demands of a high-powered career, family life, and the signs of ageing that come with the day-to-day stress of living in Toronto?

Unlike eyebags and dark circles that go away with proper rest or can be covered up with a concealer, or acne that responds to a regular skin care regimen, some signs of ageing made worse by stress take a little more than rest, toner, and concealer to get rid of.

Anyone over the age of forty is no stranger to pesky wrinkles, making them look much older than they are and feel on the inside. But that ends now.

While we can’t turn back time to reduce stress and add heaps of sunscreen to your skincare routine in your twenties or even your teens, we can definitely still reduce wrinkles — even if blowing out birthday candles and experiencing other signs of ageing are inevitable.

All it takes is five simple self-care rules, from paying closer attention to your skin to living a better, healthier lifestyle.

Stay Out of the Sun

We know, it’s easier said than done. Everyone needs a healthy dose of vitamin D that comes with sunshine, but there’s no denying the fact that sun damage is the leading cause of wrinkles.

Simply, staying out under the heat of the sun without taking the right precautions makes the sun’s UV rays work double-time on your skin as free radicals form and damage the elastin fibres underneath.

And they won’t just cause wrinkles. You’ll also deal with brown spots, red blotches, and pigmentation, which only add years to your skin. With constant exposure to the sun, it won’t matter what genes you inherited.

If you must stay out, take proper precautions. Wear protective clothing to limit the amount of exposed skin, and if you can, avoid direct exposure when the sun is at its height, such as noon, or any day during summer in Toronto.

If You Must Stay Under the Sun

The cardinal rule of skincare: wear sunscreen. This is a good habit to get into at any age. It’s never too early or too late to start, and your skin will thank you for it.

Aside from preventing painful and damaging sunburn, sunscreen has long-term benefits in terms of shielding skin from UV exposure, reducing wrinkles in the process. And because your skin stays protected even with constant exposure, you’re less likely to develop skin cancer, you’ll stay just as beautiful for longer.

Kick the Habit

The reality is, there’s no shortage of health issues and complications that arise from smoking. But lung damage aside, cigarette smoke is also highly detrimental to the skin, prompting the signs of ageing, like wrinkles, into overdrive.

Various studies show that cigarette smoke releases an enzyme that breaks down the collagen and elastin fibres of the skin, causing ageing — often most visible as wrinkles.

The nicotine in cigarettes can also cause blood vessels on the skin to narrow, which restricts blood flow, and as a result, the delivery of oxygen and essential nutrients like vitamin A. This adds to sagging skin and premature wrinkles.

If you’re still smoking — or are around family and friends who do — there’s no better time than now to kick the habit to reduce wrinkles.

Catch Some Zzz’s

Good, restful sleep is hard to come by, especially for the modern woman in Toronto dealing with a career and a busy social calendar. But it’s hard to take on the world when you don’t look and feel good. And there’s no better antidote to stress and the breakouts, dark circles, or worse – wrinkles – than regularly getting a good night’s rest.

More than feeling better and energized, there’s a science to getting a good night’s sleep and clear, younger-looking skin. According to dermatologists, a lack of sleep causes the body to produce excess cortisol, which is a hormone that’s harmful to skin cells. Cortisol causes them to break down, resulting in any number of imperfections that only add to a tired, sleepless appearance.

Make it a habit to get enough sleep every night, enabling your body to produce more human growth hormone (HGH) to repair the damage to your skin, restoring its elasticity and your youthful glow. With increased elasticity, wrinkles are reduced — and in the process, your energy restored for the day-to-day hustle out and about in Toronto.

Explore Lasting Wrinkle Reduction

With advanced wrinkles and signs of ageing, taking care of yourself requires a little more effort than sleep and sunscreen. It’s time to pamper yourself with a tried and tested treatment.

Enter Forma, the most advanced non-surgical treatment for reducing wrinkles in no time. Designed to target mild to moderate wrinkles and treat advanced ones in the long-term, Forma uses the latest in radiofrequency technology to reduce wrinkles by treating them at their root.

Combined with a trusted skincare regimen and healthy lifestyle choices, Forma effectively reduces wrinkles non-invasively. All it takes is a gentle heat delivered to the deepest layers of the skin that boosts collagen production and rebuilds the elasticity of otherwise loose skin.

Whether you’re dealing with loose skin on your face, tightening skin and reducing wrinkles around the eyelids, jowls, smile lines, and neck, or on the rest of your body, like in the arms, torso, and knees, Forma can treat these effectively, resulting in a younger-looking appearance.
