What Is Thermage FLX?

Thermage FLX is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy. 

Radiofrequency energy gently penetrates the treatment area and heats your collagen. Your collagen then starts to change (called denaturation), causing it to contract and tighten up immediately. After this initial contraction, your skin begins a natural healing process where your body produces new collagen. This new collagen makes your skin firmer and thicker over time.

The procedure involves the following steps:

  • Preparation: We will clean your treatment area and apply a grid to guide the process.
  • Application: The Thermage FLX device delivers RF energy to the skin. Each pulse emits a cooling effect, followed by a brief heating sensation and another cooling phase to protect the skin.
  • Completion: The whole process typically lasts about 90 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

Patients often experience minimal downtime with this treatment, making it a popular choice for those seeking practical cosmetic improvements without too much interruption to their daily activities.

  • Contour Concerns: Helps redefine contours along the jawline and body parts like arms and abdomen.
  • Uneven Texture: Enhances the skin's overall texture, making it appear more youthful and refreshed.

What Can I Expect From The Results?

The great thing about Thermage FLX is that most patients see fantastic results after just one session. You can book additional sessions as part of an ongoing maintenance plan.

Thermage FLX results typically last for one or two years. However, pairing a good skincare routine with additional aesthetic services is a simple way to get more mileage out of Thermage.

Thermage FLX FAQs

What Is the Difference Between Thermage and Thermage FLX?

The original Thermage treatment uses one-of-a-kind radiofrequency technology. Over two million Thermage treatments have been performed worldwide. It has a proven track record of safety and has been the focus of over 50 clinical studies.

Thermage FLX builds on this foundation while offering some notable improvements, such as:

  • 25% faster treatments
  • Optimized energy delivery
  • Improved patient comfort 

Is Thermage FLX Painful?

Thermage FLX incorporates vibration to make the treatment more comfortable. The device also cools the surface of the skin. When the treatment tip touches your skin, you will feel a brief heating sensation followed by a cooling pulse. The latter helps to soothe and protect your skin. We can apply topical numbing cream before a Thermage FLX session if desired.

Why Choose Thermage FLX Over Other Non-Surgical Treatments?

Thermage FLX is often compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments such as Ultherapy, laser treatments, and microneedling. Here's how it stacks up:

  • Ultherapy: Unlike Thermage, which uses radiofrequency, Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to target deeper layers of the skin. Ultherapy is generally more focused on lifting the skin, particularly around the eyebrows and under the chin, while Thermage FLX can be used on other areas of the body.
  • Laser Treatments: Laser treatments use light energy to target various skin issues. They can be more aggressive than Thermage and require some downtime, which is a significant consideration for many patients.
  • Microneedling: This treatment involves tiny needles that create micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production. While microneedling is effective, it primarily addresses the skin's surface, unlike Thermage's deeper tissue targeting.
