We spoke with Sadiyah Karimi and Ani Malkhasyan, founders of Snatched LA to discuss Hollywood’s favorite facial, Forma as well its body contouring counterpart, Evolve. The radio frequency treatments remodel the skin, tighten, and stimulate collagen production with no downtime, making it a red-carpet favorite. The contouring treatments are offered at their Beverly Hills location amongst other popular non-surgical treatments like Morpheus8, Microneedling, and PRP.
Forma is a really great technology for stimulating collagen production and remodeling the skin on the face and neck. Can you explain how it works?
Forma is AMAZING. Essentially, it’s a wand that uses radio frequency heat to iron over the skin. Forma technology remodels your skin and tissue by delivering radio frequency via electrodes to the skin. It is a non-invasive way to address the signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin. It is not a permanent fix, but rather a maintenance program.
How many sessions do you suggest?
Think of Forma as an anti-aging, collagen boosting facial. It’s definitely a maintenance treatment. We suggest 3-6 sessions 1 week apart for longer lasting results.
How long does it take to start seeing results?
The best part about Forma is that it gives you immediate results! You will walk out looking tight, lifted and contoured.
Is there any pain involved?
Forma is completely painless! It is actually a comforting treatment. Many clients fall asleep while the treatment is being done.
What is recovery like?
There is no downtime whatsoever which is why it gained its name of the “red carpet facial” — celebrities love to get this done before big events because of it’s no downtime and immediate results approach.
Can you tell us about your body contouring system, Evolve?
Evolve by Inmode is a non-surgical body contouring technology that helps to destroy fat, tighten skin, and tone muscle.
Evolve has three modalities, Tite, Trim, and Tone. Can you explain the difference between the three?
Trim uses radio frequency energy and tissue vacuum technology to reduce cellulite and destroy up to 30% body fat.
Tite uses only radio frequency energy through multiple applicators to tighten and remodel the skin. This works best on those who struggle with loose skin after pregnancy, weightless, or even liposuction!
Tone uses electrical muscle stimulation technology to strengthen, tone and firm muscle.
Which areas of the body can these modalities treat?
All of these modalities can be used in places like the abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks.
Can all three modalities be done together?
We pair 2 modalities on every client for the best results.
Which modality is best for cellulite?
We do a combination of Trim and Tite to help combat the appearance of cellulite.
How many sessions do you suggest for visible results?
All clients are recommended to do a package of 6 sessions. These sessions are done once a week.
What is recovery like for Evolve?
There is no downtime!
How does Evolve differ from other sculpting technologies?
Evolve differs from other body sculpting technologies by being the only device on the market that offers 3 modalities to target all 3 main client concerns. Fat loss, toning muscle, and tightening the skin. Most machines on the market only specialize in 1 modality. With today’s technology we shouldn’t make clients have to choose between one or the other. Everything works best in combination. That is when we see some really quality results by combining multiple modalities of Evolve.
