Thermage FLX in Singapore : Face, Eyes and Neck Skin Tightening and Firming
What is Thermage FLX?
Thermage FLX 热玛吉 is the 5th generation FDA approved Thermage treatment in Singapore.
Thermage FLX uses the patented monopolar capacitively radiofrequency (RF) energy designed for skin tightening and firming around the face, eyes, neck and body. This non-invasive treatment safely delivers controlled RF energy to the deep collagen-rich dermis and subcutaneous tissues to stimulate and accelerate collagen production resulting in immediate and long term skin tightening effect.
How does Thermage FLX work?
As we age, skin collagen deteriorates which results in in a loss of skin elasticity, worsening of skin sagging, fine lines and wrinkles.
Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin while the cooling tip cools the skin surface to make the treatment comfortable and to prevent overheating the skin surface.
This RF energy separates the water molecules from the fibrous collagen, causing an immediate skin contraction and skin tightening results.
Over the next 3-6 months, the secondary healing process continues as new collagen is produced and skin remodelling happens. This process results in further skin tightening and firming results over time.
What can Thermage FLX treat?
Thermage FLX in Singapore is suitable for treatment of all skin types. It is particularly suitable for patients above 30 years of age who are looking to improve overall skin elasticity to look more youthful. Thermage FLX is effective in improving a range of skin issues such as:
