What is Thermage?

The Thermage FLX Skin Tightening Laser uses focused radiofrequency energy to smooth away wrinkles and lines in the short term while boosting collagen reserves for longer-term rejuvenation. Collagen is an essential protein found in the human body that gives youthful complexions their resilience, suppleness, and radiance. With time, this supply is depleted, leaving the skin prone to sagging and creases. The Thermage FLX laser emits pulses that burrow through to the deeper skin layers, activating the body’s innate self-healing mechanism.

How does Thermage FLX work?

The Thermage FLX treatment offers non-invasive, state-of-art skin tightening through the delivery of cutting-edge RF energy. The radiofrequency stimulates the renewal of collagen reserves, reducing skin laxity. Since its inception, Thermage has been considered a gold-standard option for rewinding the clock on facial aging regardless of skin type. 

The new FLX modality works similarly to previous Thermage treatments, with certain upgrades and refinements. AccuREP algorithmic technology has been added to improve precision. A wider applicator tip also helps increase efficacy. Thermage FLX is faster and more comfortable than its predecessor.

Younger clients will appreciate Thermage FLX’s ability to ward off the signs of aging before they become pronounced, while mature patients will benefit from the gradual skin-tightening and collagen renewal. Patients can undergo Thermage FLX once a year. Thermage FLX is contraindicated for pregnant or nursing patients and for those with pacemakers.

What is the Thermage FLX treatment like?

For most clients, Thermage FLX is quick and painless. A grid is created to help guide your treatment, so it is the most effective. A handheld device is used to deliver the RF energy, while a stream of cool air is applied to the skin, enhancing your comfort during your session.

What happens after my session?

After treatment, patients can resume their normal activities right away; there is no downtime. You should take care to use the proper sunscreen to protect your results. Over the course of the coming months, collagen production will ramp up, smoothing and firming the skin. You will see visible improvements within 2-6 months. Results typically last up to 2 years.
