Loose skin is a common cosmetic problem for our Miami-area patients. This condition can affect nearly anyone at any age, regardless of your physical fitness level. We have many patients who are youthful, energetic individuals in excellent shape who eat right and exercise and yet still suffer from loose, sagging skin in various areas of the body.
That's why at our office, skin tightening is such a popular procedure. Dr. Shaun Patel uses safe, effective, and advanced technology to tighten loose, sagging skin to help eliminate this embarrassing issue and give you confidence in your appearance.
We do this by using the advanced method of the Thermage FLX, an extraordinary radiofrequency-based treatment that we have seen work time and time again.
Thermage FLX is Solta Medical's fourth generation of its radiofrequency skin tightening system. The very first Thermage system was approved in 2002 and has been updated and improved throughout the years so you can trust in the safety and effectiveness of this procedure.
Thermage FLX is a completely non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening procedure that can be used on various areas of the body, including the:
- Other areas of the body
It's exceptionally effective at achieving its goal of tightening loose, sagging skin that has been affected by weight loss, childbirth, or genetics.
Thermage FLX works by using an advanced algorithm which measures radiofrequency waves and tunes them precisely. After this calculation is complete, pulses of radiofrequency waves are delivered deep under the skin, gently warming the targeted area being treated. These waves penetrate to the collagen-heavy layers of your skin where they tighten existing collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen. Collagen is your skin's natural support and healing substance, and when new collagen is stimulated in a treatment area, the result is tighter, more natural skin.
Now in its fourth generation, the Thermage FLX system has substantial upgrades that improve the entire patient experience. A larger treatment tip cuts procedure time by up to 25 percent, and a new, vibrating handpiece increases your comfort during the procedure.
Thermage FLX is an exciting option, and we have helped many of our Miami patients by using this procedure. However, that doesn't mean it's right for everyone. Thermage FLX is best for patients with mild to moderate skin sagging, so if you have more significant concerns, another procedure might be the right choice for you.
The best way to know if this treatment is right for you is to arrange a consultation and examination. Dr. Patel understands your concerns and will treat you with the respect and dignity you deserve. We will engage you in a respectful conversation about your goals while answering any questions you might have about your skin tightening options.
