Testimonial

The combination of the IPL and Sublative laser treatments worked well for me and I was able to notice an improvement in my skin tone and texture within the first day. After a few days, I could see a difference in my skin’s brightness and tightness, especially around my cheekbone and under eye area. During the actual treatment, I experienced very little discomfort…  And there is minimal down time…I was able to go to a concert the next evening.

FAQs

CLICK ON QUESTIONS TO SEE ANSWERS.

Q: How do I get started with skin laser procedures at FoRM? +
A: We ask that anyone interested in a laser treatment schedule a 15 minute consult before their first treatment. This allows us to determine personalized treatment recommendations & expectations, review contraindications and risks, and to perform a "test run" on the treatment site to ensure safety.

SUBLATIVE
Q: How does Sublative (Laser) Skin Rejuvenation work? +
A: Heat, via Radiofrequency, is precisely directed into the deeper layers of skin via a laser applicator, in the form of a matrix. The penetrated heat then stimulates a healing response within the skin. As a result, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial imperfections of your skin’s tone and texture are appreciably reduced and skin appears healthier and more youthful.
Q: Is Sublative right for me? +
A: It is a “needle-free”, non-invasive cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the appearance and health of the skin’s surface, providing almost immediate results. It is most appropriate for those looking to address mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial imperfections of your skin’s tone and texture. This treatment is a safe and effective solution for most skin types. To optimize anti-aging effects, it may be combined with IPL Photofacial and PRP Skin Rejuvenation- please inquire about combined treatments during your consult.
Q: When can I expect to see results? +
A: Typically 5-10 days after treatment, as the skin recovers from the treatment. Each treatment has an additive effect, so to optimize results, 3- monthly treatments are recommended. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition.
Q: Does it hurt? +
A: During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. Most treatments last 30 min. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are used to reduce unpleasant feelings during treatment.
Q: What can I expect after the treatment? +
A: Immediately following treatment, it is common to have a light (pink) “sunburn” appearance for 24-48 hours. As the “sunburn” appearance fades, your skin will have a mild grid-like pattern (from the matrix) typically for 7-10 days following treatment. The “grid” then sloughs off, revealing healthier, more rejuvenated skin.This is a no-downtime procedure and can wear mineral based make-up 24 hours following the procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Q: What is the cost of treatment? +
A: Costs vary and discounts may apply. Please schedule an in-person consult to discuss pricing and to determine if Sublative is the right treatment for you.

IPL PHOTOFACIAL
Q: How does IPL Photofacial work? +
A: This treatment combines bi-polar radio frequency (heat) and light therapy to precisely and safely fade pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun & age spots, and acne. Vascular lesions such as spider veins and redness from rosacea are also lightened and gradually fade.
Q: Is an IPL Photofacial right for me? +
A: This treatment is most appropriate for those looking to reduce the appearance of darkened lesions and small blood vessels on the surface of the skin. It can also help reduce the appearance of active acne and hyper-pigmentation from past acne lesions. It may not be appropriate for those with very dark complexions or recently tanned skin. To optimize anti-aging effects, it can be combined with Sublative laser treatment and PRP Skin Rejuvenation. Please inquire about combined treatments during a complimentary consult.
Q: When can I expect to see results? +
A: Initial results are visible typically 1 week following treatment. Gradual and cumulative improvement of skin tone is typically achieved over the course of 3-6 treatment sessions, as the lesions continue to fade with each treatment, and in many cases, completely disappear. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition. Schedule a consultation to establish your personalized treatment schedule.
Q: Does it hurt? +
A: Patients may experience transient discomfort with each pulse of the laser. Any discomfort ends with the completion of treatment. Most treatments last 10-20 min.
Q: Is there down-time? +
A: This is a no downtime procedure. Most patients return to normal activities immediately treatments. Following treatment, targeted lesions appear darker for a short period of time, typically lasting 3-5 days. During this time, mineral-based make-up can be used to cover darkened lesions.
Q: What is the cost of the treatment? +
A: Costs vary and discounts may apply. Please schedule a 15 min phone or in-person consult to discuss pricing and to determine if IPL Photofacial is the right treatment for you.

MOTIF LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Q: How does Laser Hair Removal work? +
A: Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies.
Q: Is Motif Hair Removal right for me? +
A: Both men and women can achieve permanent hair reduction on almost any body area. We use an E-los laser which is proven to be effective for removing lighter colored hair on all skin tones. To achieve a successful outcome on lighter hair, more treatments may be needed compared to darker hair.
Q: When can I expect to see results? +
A: Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair color, hair type, body area and skin tone.
Q: Does it hurt? +
A: We cool the skin surface during treatment to improve comfort throughout the treatment. In addition, our E-los laser constantly measures the skin’s resistance to ensure safety and comfort during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Q: What is the cost of the treatment? +
