What is Thermage FLX? Everything there is to know.

Are you looking for a treatment that can transform your skin and help you achieve the look of youthful beauty? Well, our London Thermage treatment could be exactly what you’ve been searching for! 

This advanced skin tightening procedure has quickly captured the attention of many, as it effectively reduces wrinkles, firms up loose skin, tightens facial contours, and more. 

But what is Thermage FLX? Read on to discover everything there is to know about Thermage – from its impressive benefits to its safety record and how effective it really is!

How does Thermage work?

Thermage is a non-surgical procedure that works by harnessing the power of radio-frequency energy to effectively tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. 

The device delivers heat deep beneath the skin’s surface, creating controlled thermal damage which triggers the body’s natural healing process. 

This helps to produce new collagen and elastin, producing firmer and younger-looking skin with improved texture and tone. Moreover, because this warmth is delivered without needles or incisions, there are minimal side effects, and most people experience little to no downtime from the procedure. 

So if you’re looking for a quick fix that will help make you look years younger, then give Thermage a try!

What are the benefits of Thermage?

The benefits of Thermage FLX are many. This FDA-cleared procedure can help:

  • produce new collagen in the skin, 
  • improve its texture and laxity, 
  • reduce fine lines and wrinkles, 
  • refine facial contours, and 
  • give you a more youthful appearance. 

Many who have undergone this procedure have expressed satisfaction with their refreshed look; it’s truly a “facelift without surgery” that has the potential to make you look healthier and younger with just one session!

Which areas can be treated with Thermage?

Depending on your desired outcome, Thermage can treat the face, eyes and neck, loose abdominal skin, bottoms, sagging arms, wrinkles and indeed, most of the body!! 

All you have to do is book an appointment with one of our certified UK-qualified and trained aesthetic nurses who can help you choose the best treatment plan for your individual needs. 

Who knows – perhaps a quick session is all it takes to get that beautiful, revitalized look you’ve been hoping for.

How many Thermage treatments are needed?

One of the great advantages of Thermage FLX  is that you only need one session every 12-18 months to maintain its rejuvenation benefits. However, as with all treatments that stimulate the body’s own recuperative powers, visible improvements do take around 3-4 months before becoming apparent. For this reason, many patients initially elect to combine such treatments with gentle fillers and injectables.

How long does Thermage treatment take?

This revolutionary anti-ageing treatment is a fast and easy way to erase wrinkles and reduce skin laxity. 

It takes only a single session of around 45 minutes for Thermage treatments to achieve outstanding results! 

During the session, the handheld device causes tiny controlled injuries in the skin with brief pulsed radio frequencies. The skin responds with an improvement in its fibrous network and collagen production. You can step out with smoother, rejuvenated skin that will last at least one year – minimal effort but maximum results.

Is Thermage safe?

It’s natural to be a little wary of anything that involves heat and your skin, so it’s understandable to ask: is Thermage FLX safe? The answer is a resounding “yes!” Using a radio frequency device, Thermage safely and effectively tightens skin tissue for a more youthful appearance. 

Beyond providing a dramatic transformation, this treatment carries no risks of scarring or discolouration. 

While there may be some redness immediately following the procedure, this usually resolves after just a few hours. That means that you can enjoy amazing cosmetic results without any worries about safety.

Are there any side effects from Thermage?

While the results may be fantastic, there is an important factor to consider when it comes to this treatment – its side effects! 

Depending on your individual body, you may experience some mild discomfort during the procedure as well as slight redness and swelling post-treatment. This is completely normal and should only last temporarily. 

If you’re indeed considering this treatment, be sure to consult with a doctor who can discuss any potential risks or side effects associated with Thermage.

Does Thermage hurt?

The fear of discomfort is a natural one, especially when it comes to cosmetic treatments. Utilizing safe and precise radiofrequency technology, the procedure gently heats up deep layers of skin without causing any pain or trauma. 

With quick and predictable results, it’s no wonder why this revolutionary technique is quickly becoming popular throughout the beauty industry. 

Thermage helps leave users feeling comfortable and confident, knowing that they look their best without any unnecessary pain or harm directly resulting from the procedure.

Is there any downtime with Thermage?

Fortunately, there isn’t much! The effects of Thermage are typically seen after just one session, and any minor redness or swelling quickly fades away. After treatment, patients can expect to return to their daily routines immediately with no interruptions. What a relief!

How long after my Thermage treatment can I get back to normal activities?

After receiving Thermage treatment, you may feel as though your skin is freshly reborn. 

Yet after this revelation, the question of “when can I get back to my normal activities” will naturally follow. 

With Thermage being a non-invasive procedure requiring practically no downtime, you can start resuming your everyday life moments after the treatment! 

Just be sure to stay hydrated afterwards and avoid direct sun exposure to allow your skin time to heal.

How long do Thermage results last?

After your Thermage treatment, you can expect to enjoy smoother, tighter and lifted skin for up to two years! Now that’s something worth celebrating. Treat yourself to a Thermage FLX session and make this your year of beautiful skin!

How can I maximize my Thermage results?

If you are looking to maximize the benefits of your Thermage procedure, there are several tips and tricks you can use. 

First, ensure that you keep up with all post-procedure maintenance, as this will help extend and optimize the results of your treatment. 

Additionally, consider combining the procedure with similarly beneficial treatments and products like nourishing serums or other skin-tightening treatments that will build upon what Thermage offers. 

Above all, be sure to give yourself ample time for healing after a Thermage session – by committing to follow-up appointments, long-term results can be achieved with minimal downtime.

Are the Thermage results permanent?

While it may not provide the dramatic results of cosmetic surgery, many feel that the results they get from Thermage are worth the temporary discomfort during treatment. 

The question remains: how long will those results last? Fortunately, the answer is reassuring; while an ongoing maintenance program may be necessary to ensure maximum longevity, reports indicate that 99% of clients report satisfaction with their Thermage results one-year post-treatment. 

This high success rate makes Thermage a desirable option for those seeking longer-term improvements to their appearance without going under the knife.

Will I need multiple Thermage treatment sessions to get results?

The simple answer is no! Thermage FLX is a once-a-year treatment and specifically should not be repeated earlier than 9 months. In fact, once your new ‘collagen bank’ has been built up, it only needs to be replenished every 12 months or so! 

What kinds of results can I expect after one Thermage treatment?

After just one treatment, you should see an immediate improvement caused by what is known as the ‘Cinderella Effect’, but this is only a temporary result of localised inflammation, with the real changes only appearing after the 3rd or 4th month. 

In other words, with each day that passes after your initial treatment, your face will appear plumper, firmer and vibrantly glowing, allowing you to look and feel younger than ever before.

How much does a Thermage treatment cost?

On average, treatment courses will cost from £825.00 and up to around £5,000.00 for two body areas depending on how large the area being treated is and the number of treatments needed to meet your desired outcome. 

Who is Thermage suitable for?

This versatile solution is ideal for those seeking a subtler approach to anti-ageing – whether you’re looking to target deep wrinkles or stimulate collagen production to gain some volume in certain areas. However, there are also many younger oriental people who want Thermage FLX treatments to contour their faces with the aim of gaining a more ‘western’ look. It is for this reason that there are more Thermage FLX machines in Beijing than in any other City!

Who cannot have Thermage?

People with certain medical conditions or active pacemakers should not receive Thermage. 

Additionally, people with poor skin laxity may not be ideal candidates for the procedure since results are more apparent in those who have mild sagging skin. 

Who performs Thermage treatments?

Thermage FLX treatments must only be carried out by fully trained medical personnel, which includes plastic surgeons but, more generally, aesthetic doctors and nurses.  

By finding an experienced professional who understands the nuances of Thermage, you can trust in knowing that you are safely on the path to age-defining results.

To conclude: What is Thermage?

Thermage is a great option to consider for attaining a firmer and smoother skin appearance. 

This treatment can remedy various areas across your face, neck and body, such as loose or sagging skin on your jowls or arms, wrinkles under the eyes or even cellulite, giving you that younger-looking skin you desire! 

Not only is it non-invasive, fast and convenient, but it guarantees long-lasting results with limited downtime so that you can resume normal activities almost immediately plus, no anaesthesia is needed! 

Preparation for the treatment does need to take place prior to the appointment, along with one or two follow-up consultations to ensure optimum results. 

Prices do vary depending on what areas are covered, and the size of these areas may require more treatments than others.
