WHAT IS THE THERMAGE FLX™ SYSTEM?
The newest Thermage System is a significant leap forward in skin tightening and body contouring technology. It uses Comfort Pulse Technology to non-invasively smooth, tighten and contour the skin in a single treatment with no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime.
HOW DOES THE THERMAGE FLX PROCEDURE WORK?
The procedure works by using monopolar radiofrequency technology to heat collagen fibers deep in the skin and underlying tissue. The new Thermage FLX system has an improved, more uniform heating action that causes the structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten while stimulating collagen growth over time. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten and contour the skin.
WHAT MAKES THE NEW PROCEDURE MORE COMFORTABLE?
The Thermage system incorporates proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology™ in every aspect of the system including a new vibrating handpiece and scientifically advanced treatment tips. The Comfort Pulse Technology delivers energy more efficiently through the new system to the area being treated while the redesigned face and body tips distribute heat more efficiently. The new vibrating handpiece has also been shown in clinical studies to provide a more comfortable experience, compared to previous versions of Thermage.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results are often immediate and improve over time. Measurable tightening and contouring improvements appear gradually over a two to six month time period following a single treatment session.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Unlike many procedures requiring four or more sessions, most Thermage® patients benefit from a single treatment. The treating doctor will determine the course of treatment that is right for each patient, based on the patient’s needs and goals.
WHERE ON THE BODY IS THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The Thermage procedure is designed especially for the face and the body. It can help tighten skin safely on most body parts, including the face, eyes, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks. Our most popular areas are face, neck, stomach, knees and eyelids.
HOW LONG DOES THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Depending on the size and location of the area to be treated, the procedure may take up to two hours.
