Thermage FLX is a state of the art device that uses patented radiofrequency technology to create a uniform heating effect in the deep collagen-rich layer of the skin to tighten existing collagen and to stimulate the production of new collagen. The Thermage FLX features a new optimized energy delivery algorithm, known as AccuREP technology, that measures and tunes the amount of energy delivered with each pulse to ensure safety and predictable results. The system also features a vibrating handpiece for a comfortable treatment and a new, larger treatment tip that reduces treatment time by 25 percent. Thermage FLX was approved by the FDA at the end of 2017, and is cleared for treatment of the eyelids, face, and body: we are one of the few locations in the country where you can experience this innovative treatment at the forefront of biostimulatory technology.
Results begin to appear at 6 weeks and continue to emerge 6 months. Your skin may be slightly flushed post-treatment but there is no social or professional downtime required. Since a clear fluid is applied to the skin to ensure uniform contact with the handpiece and it can drip, Dr. Sherber advises not to come to this appointment with a fresh blow dry such that you wouldn’t mind washing your hair after the treatment. Men should shave prior to treatment so that the handpiece can make close contact with the skin if the face or neck is being treated. Treatment takes approximately one hour and no numbing is needed.
