Thermage (FLX) Skin Tightening

What is Thermage?

Thermage FLX is a noninvasive radiofrequency skin-tightening treatment that makes your skin stronger, firmer, and more elastic. The radiofrequency energy goes deep into your tissues where it’s converted into heat. The heat separates water molecules from collagen fibers deep in your skin, which causes them to immediately contract.

Over time, after your treatment, a secondary healing response happens in your skin and tissues, which causes new collagen and elastin fibers to grow. Collagen makes the skin firmer and elastin keeps it tight. While you have many of these fibers during your youth, they naturally diminish with age. 

To keep you comfortable during the treatment, the Thermage FLX system includes a cooling component for your skin’s surface. It also delivers vibrations to improve your comfort during the process. 

What are the results of Thermage?

Thermage can tighten wrinkled skin and lift skin that is sagging downward. It also offers some improvements for the texture of your skin and certain features affecting it. The team at Younger World Med Spa uses Thermage to target:

  • Wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Jowls
  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • A soft jawline

Thermage FLX stands out among its competitors because you only need one treatment session to get results that you can see. You can talk to the team at Younger World Med Spa about getting additional treatments in the future if wrinkles and roughness reappear.

How long do the results of Thermage last?

The results of Thermage FLX treatments vary in duration due to multiple factors, including your natural skin type and some of the behaviors you engage in that influence your skin health. The results take shape over the course of three to six months after your session, and then last for roughly one to two years.

Is there any aftercare for Thermage?

Right after your treatment with Thermage, you’re free to go back to all of your usual tasks and activities. This includes work and exercise. However, you should dedicate yourself to a skin care regimen appropriate for your skin type, including a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen. This helps minimize continuous skin aging after Thermage treatments.
