The most effective method for stimulating healthy skin growth is by prompting the body to create replacement tissue. Heat energy has been shown to accomplish this, but the procedure must be carefully controlled. When dermal layers absorb heat, collagen shrinks, and this actually promotes the creation of additional collagen. The result is tightened skin and more natural surface contours. The Thermage FLX® treatment employs the use of a specialized instrument that delivers radiofrequency energy into and beneath the skin. Quite often, a single treatment is all that is necessary to achieve the desired result. We highly recommend this treatment for our clients who want smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, but who are wary of any sort of skin ablation procedure.
About Energy Stimulation
Radiofrequency energy penetrates through the skin layers, but doesn’t damage the upper layer, the epidermis. When this energy is absorbed by denser tissues that lie below, the collagen shrinks. When new collagen is created, fine lines and wrinkles become far less noticeable because they are literally being filled in. In the months after the treatment, the skin texture improves dramatically. Hollows and creases are less visible because the skin surface is now suppler.
How We Perform Thermage FLX®
This treatment utilizes Comfort Pulse Technology™ to make the treatment experience comfortable for the client. After we consult with the client, we design a customized treatment that targets specific areas of the facial skin. The amount of energy we use and the duration of the energy pulses is determined by the thickness and tone of the skin and also the severity of wrinkling and where it exists.
Advantages of Thermage FLX®
This treatment is performed without having to remove or resurface the epidermis. This makes it ideal for those who have skin that is sensitive to abrasion. It’s also gentler than chemical peels. Most other tightening or contouring treatments involve downtime, but our clients who experience the Thermage FLX® treatment can get on with their regular activities quickly.
