The Thermage FLX Skin Tightening procedure is a safe, non-invasive, no downtime, single treatment, cosmetic procedure that is clinically proven to tighten, contour and rejuvenate facial skin to help naturally restore a more youthful appearance. The Advanced New Thermage FLX procedure is administered in a doctor's office using the Thermage FLX Therma Cool system, FDA & TGA cleared for the treatment of facial wrinkles, which utilizes a unique form of Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new natural collagen production. Immediate results are visible and continue to improve for up to six months. The treatment is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities. Unlike lasers, the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin colours.

The Advanced Thermage FLX Skin Tightening procedure works by heating deep collagen fibers in the skin and underlying tissue, while protecting the skin's surface with a cooling spray. The treatment is performed with the Therma Cool device. A Therma Tip, attached to a handheld device, briefly touches the skin, delivering the non-invasive CRF energy deep beneath the skin. This deep uniform heating action causes the deep structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten skin and renew facial contours.

The Thermage FLX Skin Tightening & Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment is a completely non-invasive, safe treatment that is performed only in a doctor's office. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure may take as little as 20 minutes or up to 60 minutes. This advanced new Thermage FLX Treatment is faster, more comfortable and delivers deeper results than the older Thermage CPT System.

Unlike Laser & Ultrasonic Treatments (e.g. Ultraforma & Ultherapy) requiring four or more sessions, a single Thermage FLX treatment produces results in the majority of patients. The treating doctor will determine the course of treatment that is right for each patient, based on the patient's needs and goals.

Thermage FLX - Immediate skin tightening results are visible during the treatment, and results continue to improve over time. Measurable tightening and contouring improvements appear gradually over a two to six month time period following a single treatment session.

With each touch of the Therma Tip device, the patient experiences a brief, deep heating sensation as the CRF energy is delivered to the skin and underlying tissue. This deep heating sensation is an indication that collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening. To protect the skin and make the treatment more comfortable, the surface of the skin is cooled before, during, and after each application of CRF energy. Thermage treatment patient feedback on the level of heat sensation experienced during the procedure will help guide the doctor to balance procedural comfort with maximum results.

With Thermage Treatments, unlike surgery, there is no pre-procedure preparation, such as blood work or fasting required. One can return to regular activities immediately following treatment and there is no special care after treatment. Some patients exhibit a temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, this usually resolves within 24 hours.

Good skin care and sunscreens are recommended as part of your regular skin care regimen. The only signs of treatment are naturally smoother, younger, and healthier skin. 

 

The Thermage FLX Skin Tightening procedure immediately tightens existing collagen and stimulates new natural collagen production for up to six months following the treatment. The results of the skin tightening last between 3 to 5 years in most individuals. The Thermage FLX delivers faster & superior results when compared to the older Thermage treatments and Ultrasound treatments.

The Thermage FLX procedure has an excellent safety record. With over 1 Million worldwide thermage patient treatments to date the reported incidence of side effects is less than 0.1 % in the hands of qualified medical practitioners. The most frequently reported incidents are classified as swelling, redness, bumps, and blisters on or around the treated area. These side effects have disappeared in a few days or weeks.

Ensure that your treatment is only performed by qualified cosmedical doctors and not by unqualified businesses such as hair salons and beauty salons.

While there are other skin care technologies that use radiofrequency energy, only the Thermage proprietary capacitive radiofrequency technology delivers deep uniform volumetric heating powerful enough to naturally tighten and contour skin and underlying tissue. Also, Thermage FLX achieves results in a single treatment compared to other technologies requiring five or more treatment sessions and require regular top-up treatments.
