Thermage FLX is the state-of-art, fourth-generation system for non-invasive skin tightening from Solta Medical, a global leader in the aesthetic industry in laser and energy-based devices. Thermage FLX optimizes the use of radiofrequency energy to induce skin tightening and new collagen formation. Compared to previous generations of Thermage as well as many other tightening devices on the market, Thermage FLX provides better results and more comfort during treatment with its innovative system of energy delivery and comfort pulse technology.
How Does It Work?
Loss of healthy collagen and elastic fibers in the skin contribute to the loss of skin thickness, strength, tone, and resilience. The youthful contours slowly change over the years, and skin laxity and sagging develop. Thermage FLX effectively delivers radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the skin to produce new, healthy collagen over the months following treatment. Thermage FLX also tightens the existing collagen, giving immediate improvement in contours and tissue tone in many patients.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Thermage FLX?
Since every individual has a unique set of problem areas to be treated, including asymmetry of right and left sides of the face and/or body, we customize every treatment and use a technique that includes “lifting vectors” to optimize results.
Upper Face – improve skin thickness and create subtle lifting of the brows; we customize the treatment to enhance the symmetry between the right and left brows.
Eyelids – improve skin texture and, in some patients, achieve modest lift.
Lower Face, Neck – tighten skin and soften the appearance of the facial folds (nasal folds, “marionette lines”); enhance the jawline to create a more youthful contour.
Body – improve skin thickness and tighten skin.
Who Should Not Undergo Treatment with Thermage FLX?
Thermage FLX should not be performed on people with an implantable pacemaker, an Automatic Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillator (AICD), or any other implantable electronic device (e.g. cochlear or retinal implants, electrical stimulation devices, insulin pumps, etc.). Thermal FLX should not be performed on a person who is pregnant or lactating (breastfeeding).
