Ageing is inevitable. As we get older, lines appear and sagging begins as our skin’s natural collagen stores deplete over time. But not to worry. There’s a way to bring a youthful glow to your skin. It’s the new Thermage FLX Skin Tightening treatment.
A popular non-invasive and clinically proven aesthetic treatment since the early noughties, Thermage uses radio-frequency (RF) to stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process – it promotes collagen production so the facial contours appear less saggy and more toned. The global leader in non-surgical skin tightening, Thermage currently holds 73 patents, and two million treatments have been performed all over the world. It’s also the treatment approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for non-invasive skin tightening around the eyes.
With the new-gen Thermage FLX Skin Tightening procedure, Thermage keeps getting better. RF energy is still used to treat areas like the face, eyes, neck and body (tummy, thighs and buttocks), but it now incorporates three improvements to deliver even faster results, reducing time spent in the doctor’s office so you can go about your daily routine with little fuss.
Best bit? One session is said to give you visible results – a reduction of wrinkles and immediate skin tightening. Over the next six months, you’ll continue to see improvements as your skin rebuilds its collagen production capabilities. Plus, studies have shown that the skin tightening effect lasts up to 12 months.
Besides tackling signs of ageing in skin, Thermage FLX Skin Tightening can be done as a preventive measure. Because it tightens and promotes collagen production, it can help delay skin sagging while keeping the skin looking smooth and supple.
What’s new, what’s improved
Here’s why Thermage FLX Skin Tightening is in a class of its own:
1. Improved technology
The AccuREP technology used employs an optimised treatment algorithm to enhance the RF energy output. It automatically measures the exact amount of energy needed and delivers it in real time, while taking into consideration variations in each treatment area. This ensures consistency in the results every time.
2. A new applicator
The new Total Tip 4.0 applicator is able to treat a larger surface area – an increase of 33 per cent, reducing treatment time by up to 25 per cent. Combined with the AccuREP technology, it delivers the RF energy in a controlled and precise manner, making the treatment faster, and more precise and effective.
3. Enhanced comfort
Along with Comfort Pulse Technology that intersperses bouts of cool air with shots of heat energy, the applicator tips (for both face and body) now incorporate multidirectional vibrations, offering a more comfortable experience.
In addition, the patented RF delivers heat safely and to a uniform depth within the skin to firm existing collagen and promote new collagen synthesis, so you see an immediate tightening and lifting of the skin.
Results include a more defined jawline, a softer appearance of wrinkles on the forehead or around the eyes, or even a perkier bottom (since Thermage FLX Skin Tightening can also be done on the body). Each session takes 45 minutes for the face, and 90 minutes for the body, depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated.
