Beautiful skin is a journey. As time goes on, it can become difficult to maintain.
As we age, collagen production diminishes and our skin no longer has the resilience and tautness that it did previously.
Our expertly trained practitioners are here to change the way we think about skin health, providing science based solutions to enhance our clients appearance and confidence.
Introducing Forma: one of the most advanced effective treatments available today. Clinically proven to activate your skin’s natural power to revitalise collagen and elastin fibres for a tighter, brighter and glowing appearance in just one session.
Loved by celebrities and hailed as the ultimate ‘non-surgical’ facelift, this market leading technology will give you the pain-free results you want, in as quick as a ‘lunch-time’ session.
Ideal for sculpting facial contours, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles and ultimate skin smoothing, this collagen facial rejuvenation treatment restores the inner structure of the skin.
This revolutionary radio-frequency technology is a minimally invasive treatment enabling patients to achieve a noticeably fresher appearance without surgery.
Example of Expected Results after Forma RadioFrequency Facial
What is Forma?
Forma is a cutting edge, non-surgical skin tightening and elasticity treatment that provides results without surgery, pain or downtime.
The targeted bipolar RadioFrequency technology provides contraction in the deepest layers of the skin. New collagen fibres are subtly built in the skin as RadioFrequency energy stimulates the fibroblasts to create new collagen and elastin in the dermis.
This ultimately improves skin quality and density, resulting in a lifted, sculpted and rejuvenated facial contour.
How does Forma work?
Forma is the first auto adjusting thermal skin treatment for deep and uniform tissue stimulation.
The device was developed on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E (Aquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E technology uses RF energy to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin dermis, with no area being under treaed or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results. An in-built temperature control guarantees the temperature being delivered is both sufficient and constant for optimal treatment outcomes.
A heated wand device that slides on to your skin uses thermal energy only to tighten and resurface and is an entirely non-surgical stimulation technique that causes the skin to contract thus , it contours, lifts and tightens ageing skin to restore its youthful glow without the need for surgery.

Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crows feet, upper and lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, jawline, smile lines and the neck.
On the body, popular contouring treatments are carried out on the upper arms, abdomen, thighs and any other areas that may benefit from skin tightening.
Is Forma for me?
Forma is suitable for all skin tones and types and is perfect for anyone seeking a non-invasive approach to ultimate skin health whilst defying ageing. The technology can provide preventative benefits and definition in the facial contours for younger patients whilst at the same time effectively treating concerns without the need of invasive surgery for older clients.
Once you have achieved your personal skin goals we do recommend a fortnightly to monthly facial to maintain your results. On average, The Look by Louise clients receive 1-3 facials per month.
How many sessions will I need?
In just 1-6 comfortable treatments, patient’s notice significant improvements in their complexion, laxity and density of their skin.
We believe in establishing a regular convenient routine that works best to suit you.
Depending on individual parameters, our Skin Health Practitioners may recommend weekly treatments initially over a 6 week period. Individuals with mild skin laxity may be treated in fewer sessions, each being spaced further apart.
Multiple sessions provide optimal results, upon consultation we will be able to advice a bespoke treatment plan.
How soon will I see results?
From just one treatment, you will immediately notice a tighter, smoother and glowing complexion.
Forma technology works gradually and incrementally as new collagen and elastin is being built. Therefore regular frequent treatments lead to optimal changes in the deepest layers of the skin, with improvements being accelerated after each session.
Many of our clients choose Forma as a maintenance programme. Once desired results have been achieved, results can be easily maintained with subsequent non-surgical skin tightening treatments less often or further apart.
Please note individual results may vary.
Does it hurt?
No not at all. Due to Forma’s precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin it is an essentially painless procedure, with maximum benefits and no downtime.
Slight redness and flushing is common post-procedure which subsides within a few hours providing a healthy, plump appearance.
Are there any risks or side effects?
This treatment is extremely safe, by virtue of the built in temperature control, which keeps the treatment within narrow parameters.
Slight redness (Erythema) is often seen immediately after treatment which generally resolves within an hour or so.
Do I need to do any preparation for my Forma treatment?
Forma is safe and suitable for all skin tones and types, therefore no preparation is required. It is recommended that you use sun protection at all times to delay the ageing process alongside hydrating topically and interally. As Hydrated skin will accelerate desired results.
How can I maximise my results post treatment?
Forma is classed as a ‘lunch-time’ treatment because you can resume normal activities immediately and apply any skincare products or make-up as desired, many of our clients choose Forma as the ideal pre-event or special occasion treatment due to the immediate luminosity and tightening results.
In order to obtain maximum results from your treatment; we recommend pharmaceutical grade skin-care alongside bespoke nutritional supplementation. All of these products are prescribed uniquely for your skin concerns and goals and can be purchased in-clinic or from our online skin boutique.
