formaFORMA is a revolutionary innovation in treating wrinkles and sagging skin without the surgery, pain or downtime.   FORMA is one of the newest, most advanced non-surgical cosmetic procedures available. It is proven to be a highly effective technique for skin tightening and lifting. Using radio frequency, Forma targets deep layers of the dermal layer to improve skins elasticity, and firming the skin resulting in tighter more toned skin.  Forma can also spark collagen regeneration which results in younger looking skin. This collagen remodeling procedure is non-surgical and pain-free; without the need for numbing cream! Using the Forma system, we will make several passes on targeted areas to firm up your skin. After each treatment, there will be some slight redness in the treated area, which will subside within a couple of hours.

FORMA is suitable for all skin types and is a nice option for a non invasive rejuvenation. Patients have reported that they really appreciate the improvements it makes on the jowls and neck areas. The procedure is very relaxing and we do suggest multiple weekly sessions for maximum results. Forma skin tightening treatments are virtually painless. Many people compare Forma skin tightening treatments to a hot stone massage. Because Forma skin tightening treatments are virtually painless, there is no need for topical or oral anesthesia, like there is with other skin tightening services. We see patients of all ages for difference reasons. Younger patients come in for prevention or a more defined look, and older patients coming in for the lift and tighten without needing invasive surgery.

Forma Radio Frequency is quick, convenient and painless, immediately revealing tighter skin,  younger looking skin just after one treatment, with no downtime. You can return to work and resume normal activities. Call us for your free consultation and assessment at 540.371.9098.

 

 

Anti-aging: Should we lose the term?

At GlowMD Laser MedSpa, we hear the word anti-aging a lot. Anti-aging happens to be one of   top-searched keywords on the internet. The notion of turning back the clock draws patients to dermatologists and clients to med-spas, and the term is part of skin care advertising for thousands of products from over the counter moisturizers to prescription peels and injectables.

So it comes as something of a shock that the publishers of Allure, a leading fashion and beauty magazine, announced that they’re banning the term anti-aging from their editorial copy. Huffington Post quotes Allure‘s Michelle Lee on the thinking behind the change:

“Whether we know it or not, [the term is] subtly reinforcing the message that aging is a condition we need to battle — think antianxiety meds, antivirus software, or antifungal spray,” wrote Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lee , adding, “Repeat after me: Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full, happy life.”

Allure is putting its cover where its philosophy is, featuring ageless cover woman Helen Mirren. (Of course, if we all aged as gorgeously as Dame Helen, maybe we wouldn’t be so anti-!) But the magazine isn’t content to police their own editorial team. Lee is issuing a challenge to all of us to rethink the way we approach aging, to think of it as something we do naturally, beautifully, gracefully, not an enemy in the mirror to vanquish.

At GlowMD laser MedSpa it’s our motto that healthy skin is beautiful skin — at any age. Though we’ll continue to use the keyword anti-aging to describe many of our cosmetic treatments and products, the only aging we’re dead-set against is premature, preventable damage to skin that causes early wrinkling, sagging, and spots and can lead to skin cancer. Otherwise, we’re here to help you live gracefully and beautifully every year of your life.
