The Thermage® system is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that can help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance.
Thermage® FLX uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin, while the tip vibrates and cools the surface to help aid in patient comfort.
The applied heat separates the water molecules from the fibrous collagen, causing an immediate contraction, resulting in skin tightening.
Over the next few months, the secondary healing response continues as collagen is deposited and remodeled.
The new collagen growth tightens the skin further over time.
