Thermage FLX – How it works

with No Comments

Available at our Nottingham, Leicester and London clinics, we use Thermage FLX radiofrequency technology for various skin tightening treatments. This proven, non-invasive treatment delivers bulk heating to the deepest layers of the skin which results in firmer, toned skin.


How Does Thermage FLX Work?

As you grow, the collagen that keeps your skin tight eventually breaks down. This results in looser skin that starts showing wrinkles and fine lines. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper layers of your skin that are rich in collagen. This applied heat then causes collagen to contract and encourages new collagen cells to grow. This helps you achieve smoother skin after a single treatment, with results that continue to improve.


Does Thermage FLX Hurt?

Thermage FLX technology is one of the quickest Thermage treatments, making it more comfortable for patients. The machine applies heat directly to the skin, but it also uses a cooling system to protect the skin’s surface which reduces discomfort.

At the same time Thermage FLX applies vibration massage to the treatment area which reduces pain even further by blocking the neural signals.


Does Thermage FLX work on the face?

Yes, Thermage FLX builds and reproduces collagen, which tightens the skin, giving your face a subtle lift. The most common treatment areas on the face are the cheeks and jawline. It effectively targets loose skin as well as a sagging jawline, making you look younger after a single session.


Does Thermage Work on the Stomach?

Thermage FLX can improve the appearance of sagging stomach skin, allowing you to achieve a tighter abdomen. The precise heating is specially designed to smooth dimpled or uneven skin as well as smoothing unwanted bulges. The result is a tighter abdomen with minimal discomfort and without injections or surgery.


Does Thermage FLX work on thighs?

The thighs are one of the most common areas that we treat, as the skin on your thighs often becomes loose and develops cellulite, even with regular exercise. Thermage FLX can tone your skin and reduce cellulite by boosting your natural collagen production.


How long does Thermage FLX last?

A Thermage FLX treatment takes around 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the areas treated. Unlike invasive cosmetic surgeries, it doesn’t require downtime or a recovery period.


How long does Thermage FLX take to work?

Visible results appear gradually within two to six months following your treatment. Results of a single Thermage FLX treatment are long lasting, with the effects lasting for up to two years for most patients. However, this will depend on your skin condition and ageing process.

After treatment, you can resume your normal activities. We recommend that you incorporate sunscreen in your daily skin care routine.
