About Thermage FLX

Thermage FLX is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to tighten and contour the skin. It is an advanced version of the Thermage system, designed to address skin laxity and promote collagen production. Thermage FLX is often used for skin tightening on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, and abdomen.

Thermage FLX utilizes RF energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tissue remodeling. This leads to skin tightening and improved texture over time. Thermage FLX is a non-surgical procedure that does not require incisions or downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. The full effects of Thermage FLX develop gradually over several months as collagen continues to rebuild and remodel. Some immediate tightening may be noticeable after the treatment, but optimal results are typically achieved over time. The downtime for Thermage FLX treatment is minimal, most patients are able to resume their usual routine immediately after the treatment.
