Discover the Revolutionary Skin-Tightening Power of Thermage

Thermage FLX is a revolutionary skin-tightening procedure that works to smooth out wrinkles and sagging skin, revealing a smoother and more youthful complexion. Using advanced radio-frequency technology, the device emits powerful energy pulses deep into the dermis and subcutaneous layers of the skin, causing existing collagen and elastin fibers to heat up. This heat energy works to remodel the existing collagen and elastin while stimulating new collagen growth, leading to tighter and more toned skin with a visible improvement in the skin’s elasticity. Plus, with the added flexibility of FLX, the heat energy can be applied more efficiently than before to target specific facial areas or wrinkles more effectively. With this powerful and convenient technology, Thermage FLX is able to deliver the skin-tightening results of a face-lift with no needles or surgery.

Explore the Procedure Details

During the procedure, the RF device is placed onto the treatment area. Then, a cooling gel is applied. The RF device glides across the skin, creating thermal columns of heat beneath the skin’s surface. As the RF device is glided across the skin, pulses of heat are released to treat different areas, depending on the desired results. The patient may feel some heat during the procedure. After the procedure, a post-treatment moisturizing cream will be applied to help calm the skin.

Experience a Smooth Recovery

Following the treatment, you may experience mild redness, tenderness, and swelling at the treatment site, which can usually be relieved by applying ice and taking a few pain relievers if needed. Any side effects typically disappear within 24-48 hours, and most people can resume their regular activities following treatment. In some cases, the skin may look and feel tighter immediately, and the results can improve over time as new collagen builds up in the area.

Generally, the best results of a Thermage FLX treatment can be seen within the first few months. However, the most important factor to consider when it comes to long-term results is following a skincare routine with sunscreen and topical retinol, as these products will help maintain the benefits of your Thermage FLX treatment.
