Whether you're gearing up for a special event or just want a rejuvenated appearance with no downtime, a red carpet facial is the way to go. At Avenue 1, we use Forma by Inmode to lift and tighten the skin of the face to achieve a more youthful appearance almost immediately with zero downtime. This allows you to be ready for your next upcoming event at a moment's notice or simply head into work the next day with no redness, peeling, or other obvious signs of treatment.

What is a red carpet facial?

At Avenue 1, we've been providing skin rejuvenation in Royal Oak and the surrounding area for years, and one of our most popular services is the red carpet facial. But what exactly is that?

This facial gets its name because patients who undergo the procedure are red carpet-ready in just hours. We use Forma by Inmode to achieve a more youthful appearance with a procedure that takes about 45 minutes and leaves patients with no redness, peeling, swelling, or any of the other short-term side effects that can come with other treatments.

Don't get us wrong. More aggressive treatments definitely have their place, but when you want to give your face a quick pick-me-up, Forma is the right choice, and it's a choice that many of our clients absolutely love.

What is Forma?

Forma is a thermal skin treatment that doesn't hurt, doesn't cause peeling or swelling, and self-adjusts for the perfect amount of heat from the start of the treatment to the finish. It's been called a "lunchtime" treatment because patients can actually spend a lunch hour receiving the treatment and head back to work with no visible signs that anything was done.

How Does Forma Work?

Forma uses radiofrequency technology to produce gentle heat that's applied to the skin via a hand-held wand. The wand gently heats the dermal layer of the skin enough to trick it into thinking that it's been injured but not enough to actually cause any visible signs of irritation. By heating the skin just enough in this way, the body releases chemicals that stimulate the production of collagen in the treated areas. This collagen naturally lifts and plumps the skin, reducing wrinkles and adding volume to the skin for a more youthful appearance.

What can a red carpet facial treat?

A red carpet facial with Forma can treat a variety of facial problems, and it even works on the abdomen and arms. A Forma facial is ideal to treat:

  • Forehead
  • Crows feet
  • Upper and lower eyelids
  • Smile lines
  • Jowls
  • Neck

In about 45 minutes, Forma can reduce wrinkles in all of the above areas and tighten jowls and sagging neck skin, so it's the perfect procedure to have when you need to look your best for any occasion or simply continue your skincare routine.

Is Forma painful?

In general, Forma is not considered a painful procedure at all. The wand heats up to about 109 degrees, and many people describe the feeling as that of hot stones being rubbed on their face. If you have particularly sensitive skin, you can, however, ask for numbing gel. In addition, when the treatment is used around more sensitive facial skin like the eyes, the temperature can be manually reduced for comfort.

What to Expect from a Red Carpet Facial

A red carpet facial with Forma delivers visible and immediate results. Wrinkles are reduced and skin is tightened in the treated areas. It's important to note that the amount of improvement is heavily influenced by the severity of wrinkles or lax skin in the treatment area. That being said, the first treatment will produce a visible improvement, and continued weekly sessions for a six-week period will produce the best results possible.

Will Forma work for me?

Form is a fit for anyone at any age - men or women. This procedure helps younger people keep their skin firm and tight, and it can help older men and women reduce wrinkles and tighten skin that has begun to lose its firmness. Forma is a procedure that's right for everyone.
