THERMAGE TREATMENT SINGAPORE

BY S AESTHETICS CLINIC

The New Thermage FLX – Non-invasive treatment to contour the face, tighten skin, pores and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in 2020.

What is Thermage?

Thermage FLX is the newest iteration (4th generation) of the popular Thermage treatment.

It is the premier and most effective skin tightening treatment that can help combat loss of skin elasticity to effectively reduce wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes, face, neck and body without surgery.

How does Thermage work?

Using a unique patented monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology, Thermage safely heats up the deeper layers of our skin where collagen is broken down and lost as we age.

The applied heat causes the loose collagen matrix to contract and encourages new collagen to regenerate and grow again, helping to create smoother skin that continues to improve 4-6 months after treatment.

Is Thermage FLX better?

The new Thermage FLX builds on the benefits of the prior generation Thermage for even better results.

Thermage FLX AcceREP technology provides for more precise and consistent treatment while integrating the Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) with multidirectional vibration and interspersed cooling to make treatment more comfortable and less painful.

The New Total Tip 4.0 is also larger and makes treatment faster by up to 25% than the older Thermage machines.

Thermage treatment starts with placement of a grid which guides the treatment of a specific area on the skin.

The level of heat is checked throughout treatment and adjusted accordingly to ensure patient comfort while producing maximum results.

Does Thermage FLX have downtime?

Thermage FLX treatment has minimal to no downtime.

Some patients may experience mild redness or minor swelling which typically subsides within 24 hours after the treatment.

Patients can usually get back to their normal daily routine immediately after treatment.
