As we grow older, the effects of aging begin to have negative effects on our skin, and it doesn’t take long before we become unhappy with what we’re seeing in the mirror. Thermage® FLX can tighten your skin, and it doesn’t require invasive surgery. If you’re thinking about undergoing this procedure, you should know that it works best on the body, eyelids, face, neck, and chest. It can even tighten the skin on the backs of your hands.
Thermage® is frequently used on the forehead because it’s good at opening the eyes and lifting the eyebrows. When treatments are combined, it can give you great results, and you’ll end up with skin that looks youthful and tight.
A Look at Thermage®
The main reason why this Thermage treatment is effective is that it uses radiofrequency energy. When this energy is passed into your skin, it heats the area in a uniform way.
Since it produces heat deep within your dermis, the existing collagen in the area is tightened, and the heat is also effective for stimulating the growth of new collagen. Thermage® works well for lifting the jaw line, cheek, and brow. It’s especially useful for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
When you’re finished with the procedure, you’ll notice a significant reduction in sagging skin.
What About the Results?
Although it’s possible that you’ll notice immediate results, the greatest benefits from Thermage will appear several months after the treatment.
Most patients will realize the full effects of the treatment about six months later. The benefits of this procedure will last for at least two years, and to prolong the results, it’s important to practice good hygiene and take care of your skin.
What Does Thermage® Feel Like?
Some patients want to undergo this treatment, but they aren’t sure if it’s uncomfortable. Thermage is one of the best treatments for skin tightening because it doesn’t involve surgery.
During the procedure, the applicator uses pulsed laser light to send heat deep into the layers of your dermis. When the light is pulsed, you’ll feel the sensation of heat, and since the device constantly monitors the temperature of your skin, you never have to worry about getting burned.
To keep your skin cool, the device uses a cryogen spray, which is delivered throughout the entire procedure. The session times vary between one person to the next as the target area varies in size as well.
