WHAT IS THERMAGE FLX?
At VIDASKIN Medical Aesthetic Clinic, we are a certified Thermage partner. Being one of the top users of Thermage CPT and a firm believer in the results brought about by Thermage treatments, we are now one of the first clinics in Singapore to introduce the new Thermage FLX Treatment. Thermage FLX is a skin tightening technology, with each pulse of the machine delivering customised radiofrequency to every inch of the treatment area, followed by a double cryogen cooling effect. With a larger treatment tip that generates more heat and energy, Thermage FLX is a faster treatment, allowing greater client comfort. This in turn means we can treat more deeply within the skin for superior results.
HOW DOES THERMAGE FLX WORK?
Thermage FLX is a clinically proven and non invasive way to tighten and contour the skin, combating the loss of elasticity caused by age, weight loss, lifestyle and other determining factors. Thermage treatments are all about energy – focusing radiofrequency energy into specific areas to kick start the body’s own collagen renewal process. By heating the deep layers of the skin, Thermage causes collagen fibres to contract, instantly improving the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, firmer and younger look. Thermage works in a single treatment with no down time and
delivers a natural result. Using radiofrequency technology, Thermage FLX works below the surface to heat the deep layers of your skin, helping to remodel existing collagen and producing new collagen for an overall younger looking appearance. While laser treatments and other radiofrequency procedures also work to smooth the surface of the skin, no other treatment heats as deeply as Thermage FLX.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THERMAGE FLX?
▪ The Thermage procedure is a fast procedure and requires no downtime from normal activities.
▪ Improvements are immediately visible and continue to improve after the treatment as your
body goes through it's natural collagen rebuilding process.
▪ Thermage is suitable for all skin types and tones.
▪ The treatment delivers natural looking results on your entire face, including the forehead,
eyes, nasolabial folds, jawline, jowls and the area under your chin.
▪ We also perform Thermage on the tummy and inner thighs for improvements to saggy skin.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THERMAGE FLX?
Thermage does not affect the outer layers of the skin, so there are minimal side effects or risks. There may be some mild swelling or redness after your Thermage procedure, which will subside within 48 hours. Thermage is safe during breastfeeding but is not recommended during pregnancy due to the radiowave technology.
HOW MANY THERMAGE FLX TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
For best results, we recommended one Thermage treatment every 12 months. For patients who commence on their anti aging routine later may find themselves benefiting from 6 monthly treatments for the first year, followed by annual treatments thereafter.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY THERMAGE FLX TREATMENT?
We start with a thorough cleanse of the face, followed by the application of a numbing cream on the face for approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Then, a temporary tattoo grid is transferred to act as a treatment 'map'. Using a handpiece, our doctor will apply the Thermage tip, one pulse at a time, in a systematic manner across the 'map'
As the device touches your skin, you will feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation and gentle vibration. The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for collagen remodeling. Throughout the procedure, we will ask for your feedback on the
level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results.
A full face Thermage treatment takes approximately 90 minutes.
IS THERMAGE FLX PAINFUL?
During the procedure you may experience tingling and a slight burning sensation. We rate the pain 3/10, which can be easily managed with the application of our medical grade numbing cream.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY THERMAGE FLX TREATMENT?
Visibly tighter skin with a reduction in lines and wrinkles. Results from Thermage are immediate and will continue to improve over time during the course of your body’s natural collagen rebuilding process.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST TREATMENT?
There are no special requirements for Thermage FLX. You can apply makeup, exercise and bathe as usual after your treatment. We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent sun damage to the
skin. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or above should be used daily.
Some patients may also experience temporary dryness of the skin after Thermage treatments. Therefore, we usually recommend the use of a daily hydrating mask for approximately 7 to 10 days after.
Whilst we have seen amazing results from Thermage FLX, please know tha results do vary and we cannot make guarantees. We recommend coming and speaking to our doctor for an in-depth consultation. They will discuss in detail how Thermage works, whether it will be right for your skin type, and the expected results in line with your skin goals.
