  • What is Envision by InMode?
    Envision is the new in-office standard revolutionizing procedures in delicate areas. This ground breaking, nonsurgical device, deploys multiple programmable modalities which work synergistically to deliver precision treatments: • Forma-I: bipolar radiofrequency (RF) • Lumecca-I: intense pulsed light (IPL) • Morpheus8: minimally invasive fractional technology
  • How does Envision by InMode work?

  • What is FORMA-I?
    This is an innovative nonsurgical procedure that delivers bipolar radio-frequency (RF) technology to smaller, more delicate sub-dermal layers. Designed with unprecedented safety, the small size applicator, precision RF depth control, and intelligent temperature monitoring, ensure a safe non-drug alternative.
    Forma-I feels like a warm massage in the eye area, improving blood circulation. The small size applicator and precision RF depth control allow for treatment in small and delicate areas.
  • How does INMODE Forma Radiofrequency treatment (RF) work?
    INMODE Forma Radio-frequency treatment (RF) uses Radio-Frequency energy to generate heat which is applied to the skin around the eyes. This heat stimulates collagen formation, bringing white blood cells, and stem cells to the skin around your eyes while reducing inflammation. This treatment aids in opening up clogged meibomian glands, allowing for improved tear production and secretion. RF is usually followed by a Meibomian Gland expression.
  • What is LUMECCA-I?
    Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) designed to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. Lumecca-I uses photothermolysis, which provides a photo-facial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. IPL has been FDA approved for more than 15 years to remove superficial skin lesions.
    Lumecca-I creates tissue heating which helps to reduce inflammation. During treatment there will be a bright flash of light and a sensation on your skin that feels like a light snap from an elastic band. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside within an hour.
  • How does INMODE Lumecca Intense Pulse Light treatment (IPL) work?
