Thermage FLX



No one wants to look older, but the aging process will sooner or later affect all of us. Now, thanks to Thermage FLX and the rejuvenation specialists at the Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation, you have a new and effective treatment option that can help improve many areas of the body. Best of all, Thermage FLX provides long-lasting results — with no downtime!

What does Thermage FLX treat?

Thermage FLX, a completely non-invasive treatment, can help improve the appearance of sagging, loose, or crepey skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker, and younger look and great feeling skin with no downtime. Thermage treatments can be performed on any area of the face and body, and you can easily combine Thermage FLX with other treatments to enhance your results.

Thermage FLX can:

  • soften lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead
  • improve body contours
  • smooth crepey skin
  • tighten leg and abdominal skin
  • reduce wrinkles around the eye
  • decrease hooding of the upper eyelid

How does Thermage FLX work?

Thermage FLX represents a substantial new level of treatment for individuals experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of aging in the face, neck, and body areas. Thermage FLX can even treat the delicate eye area. This latest Thermage technology delivers more energy more efficiently and more comfortably to areas where you need skin rejuvenation.

Thermage FLX, like previous Thermage treatments, uses radiofrequency heat energy to gently heat the underlying skin layers in a controlled and targeted fashion. Heating the dermis in this way stimulates the production of collagen which is naturally produced by the body and is responsible for maintaining good skin tone, texture, and hydration. More collagen means healthier, younger looking skin.

Thermage FLX improves upon previous generations of the treatment in three crucial ways. First, a Thermage FLX treatment will be much more comfortable. The Thermage FLX treatment tip vibrates to improve patient comfort. Second, the all-new Thermage FLX treatment tip is now 25 percent larger which means more skin area can be treated during each treatment pass, reducing treatment times substantially.

The most important advance in the Thermage FLX treatment is AccuREP™ technology. AccuREP™, a treatment optimization algorithm, helps your board-certified facial plastic surgeon determine precisely how much energy to deliver to the treatment area and how deep to deliver the energy. With this advanced technology, you will get the maximum amount of rejuvenation during your Thermage FLX treatment session.

Your Thermage FLX Procedure

Since Thermage is not a laser, it heats only the deep layers of the skin and leaves the top layers cool. No topical anesthetic is required, but we do recommend taking a dose of acetaminophen one hour before your treatment to improve your comfort level during the procedure. The new Thermage FLX tip will also help keep you comfortable during your treatment. Immediately after the procedure, your skin will begin to feel smoother and tighter. You will see the full effects by six months after your treatment. During this time, your body produces new collagen and rejuvenates your skin.

Recovering from Thermage FLX

You will have no downtime following your Thermage FLX treatment. You can resume all activities right away. While you may experience mild redness immediately following the procedure, this will resolve quickly. Full results of your Thermage FLX treatment will be visible 6 months following your treatment.

What results can I expect from Thermage FLX?

Your Thermage FLX treatment will continue to improve your skin for two to six months after your treatment. During this time, your body continues to produce new collagen. Your results, however, will last much longer. You will enjoy firmer, younger looking skin. Individual results, however, will vary depending on many factors such as genetics, your overall health, and levels of sun exposure. While only a single Thermage FLX treatment is needed to get your full results, follow-up treatments are recommended annually or as required to maintain your look since aging will naturally continue to affect your skin. We also recommend altenating Thermage FLX treatments with Ultherapy treatments to maximize the collagen boosting effect of both treatments. Thermage FLX is popular with both men and women and is safe for all skin tones and skin types.
