Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is an aesthetic treatment that firms and tones skin that is sagging or loose. Skin sags when your body produces less collagen and elastin due to age or other factors. The lower production of these proteins causes the skin to hang loose over bones and muscles. 

Other factors that may impact the tightness of your skin:

  • Drastic weight loss
  • Repetitive facial expressions
  • Sleep positions 
  • Unhealthy diets
  • Hormonal imbalances 

You may notice sagging skin on your face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. Skin tightening can help improve the overall quality of your skin and take years off of your appearance.

There are both surgical and nonsurgical options for skin tightening. Surgical options include face-lifts, brow lifts, or skin reduction surgery. These methods can be costly, invasive, and require extensive downtime.

Cataleya Aesthetics proudly offers noninvasive options for skin tightening, including the hi-tech Forma® and Forma Plus®. These methods are cost-effective, painless, and require no downtime.

How can Forma and Forma Plus provide quality skin tightening?

Forma and Forma Plus are both safe and effective methods for tightening your skin that use therapeutic levels of radiofrequency-generated heat. This treatment stimulates deep tissue contraction and increased the production of collagen and elastin.

As a result, Forma and Forma Plus treatments: 

  • Firm, smooth, and refine the surface of the skin
  • Correct undesirable irregularities
  • Improve the texture and tone of the skin 
  • Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reverse evidence of sun damage


Forma treatments offer radiofrequency (RF) skin-tightening therapy for the face, neck, forehead, eyelids, under eyes, backs of the arms, and other small areas of the body. Forma Plus treatments provide RF therapy to larger areas of the body, including the back, abdomen, thighs, arms, and knees.

What happens during a Forma and Forma Plus skin tightening treatment?

During an initial consultation, the team at Cataleya Aesthetics creates a treatment plan that helps you meet your aesthetic goals. They may suggest that you combine Forma and Forma Plus with other treatments, such as intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, laser body contouring, and injectables.

Depending on the treatment area, your treatments may last from 30-60 minutes. Many people choose to treat multiple areas during one session, and this is both safe and time-efficient.

For best results, most treatment plans involve weekly sessions over 6-8 weeks. While you should see some immediate improvement in the looseness of your skin, you’ll see your best results over the following weeks after treatment.
