WHAT IS THERMAGE FLX?
Thermage FLX is a non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment. It uses radiofrequency (RF) technology that stimulates collagen production to give softer and tighter skin.
Thermage FLX is a clinically proven treatment that helps diminish ageing signs such as loose and sagging skin. It is also equipped with a larger tip that can effectively deliver revitalizing ingredients for firmer and younger-looking skin.
As the latest generation treatment, Thermage FLX is confirmed to give superior results with a faster procedure and less discomfort. Skin tightening results will be in effect almost immediately after the procedure.
HOW DOES THERMAGE FLX WORK?
Thermage FLX works by transferring heat and energy onto the skin. The radiofrequency (RF) technology gives pulsation to the skin and triggers collagen production.
RF technology sends energy waves to the deep skin layer (dermis) and heats it up for revitalization. Effective in remodelling the natural collagen as well as stimulating new collagen production. The collagen renewal process can help in achieving firmer, smoother, and tighter-looking skin.
Aided with a larger tip, Thermage FLX is built to improve loose and sagging skin faster. Thermage FLX is also equipped with a cryogen cooling sensation that soothes patients from any discomfort. Compared to other laser treatments, Thermage FLX provides heat into the skin’s deeper layer, capable of delivering more robust results.
THERMAGE FLX AREAS OF TREATMENT
TREATMENT DOWNTIME AND RESULTS
With its relatively fast procedure (60 – 90 minutes), Thermage FLX gives little to no downtime. Most patients can see the results (tighten, slimmed down, and lifted skin) almost immediately.
However, the instant effect is only 10% of the outcome. Patients will need to wait for another 3 months to notice the optimal results and enjoy their firmer and younger-looking skin.
Thermage FLX results varies depending on the patient’s age and their skin’s condition. In most cases, results can last for 12 – 24 months. This way, patients can enjoy their luminous and energized skin for quite a long time.
MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS
The most common side effects reported by the patients are redness in the treatment areas. Fortunately these side effects will usually disappear within a few hours to a day.
Thermage FLX is a very safe beauty treatment. Most patients can directly continue their activities without dealing with any bothering side effects.
WILL I NEED TO REPEAT THE TREATMENT?
Most patients are able to achieve desired results after a single treatment. However, the outcomes may vary depending on many factors such as age, lifestyle, and skin condition.
If you wish to maintain your skin’s radiance and youthful appearance, you can repeat the Thermage FLX treatment after 12 months. In most cases, patients who repeat their treatment are able to notice the significant improvement in their skin’s elasticity.
Benefits from Thermage FLX
IS THERMAGE FLX SUITABLE FOR ME?
Thermage FLX is suitable for everyone who wishes to reverse any ageing signs (i.e. sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines). With its radiofrequency technology, Thermage FLX is very safe and effective in preserving skin’s natural elasticity.
Most patients who opt for this treatment are in the age range of 40 – 60 years old. This is because humans tend to lose their ability to produce natural collagen during these periods. A non-invasive collagen enhancement procedure like Thermage FLX makes a good choice to maintain skin firmness.
People in their 20s and 30s are also eligible for this treatment. They can benefit from this by preserving their natural beauty at a young age and prevent ageing signs beforehand.
Please note that Thermage FLX is not suitable for pregnant women due to dangers that can be imposed by the radiofrequency wave.
