Thermage FLX is the newest model of a proven, unique radiofrequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. Apex Dermatology are thrilled to announce that the new Thermage FLX completes the treatment in an hour, as opposed to the hour and a half the last model took.
Thermage FLX radiofrequency energy works with your body, remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want. Thermage FLX treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective. Best of all, Thermage FLX works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It’s your skin, revitalized.
The new four centimeter tip increases the surface area by 25 percent. That means that the treatment time is reduced by about 25 percent. With the addition of the new cryogen device, which cools the skin during treatment, you’l get all the results Thermage is known for - in a comfortable delivery at a fraction of the time.
Thermage FLX is effective on:
- The Face – as we age, phrases like “turkey neck”, loose jowls, sagging skin and “what happened to my jawline?” creep in. Thermage FLX smoothes lines and wrinkles and remodels collagen for the overall health of the skin.
- The Body – aging doesn’t just affect the skin on our faces, our bodies see the effects too, with crepey, sagging skin and unwanted bulges and dimples. ThermageFLX is a non-invasive way to smooth the skin on our bodies and even temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite.
- The Eyes – those bags under our eyes, the fine lines, and thick hoods under our eyes make us look worn-down. Thermage FLX treats the upper and lower eyelids to help you look more youthful and rested.
Most patients can see and feel Thermage FLX results soon after treatment – in as little as one day. Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body actually produces new collagen and creates a smoothing effect. Even better, results can last years.
What to Expect
Thermage® treatments are typically 45 minutes for eyes or face and up to 120 minutes for larger body areas. You will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse of radio frequency. At Apex Dermatology, we use the latests Thermage CPT which adds a gentle vibration sensation and interspersed cooling bursts that give you even more comfort during treatment. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There's typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.
