When it comes to skin tightening, there is no competition: Thermage FLX beats out Ultherapy every time. That’s why clients come to Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care from all over the state to experience the ultimate in skin tightening. Thermage technology has been available for over two decades, offering a non-surgical option to tone and tighten the skin. There is no downtime after receiving a Thermage FLX treatment, and it restores the skin to a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
You will see some results immediately after your Thermage FLX treatment, but since the technology also stimulates collagen induction (which takes time), results will continue to improve in the weeks and months following your treatment. In fact, clients report seeing improvements for up to six months. Quick and easy, since no downtime is required that means you can immediately get back to your day after taking advantage of the Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology that gets your skin tauter, more youthful, and gorgeous.
How Thermage FLX Works
People of all skin tones and colors can benefit from Thermage FLX (which is not the case with every laser). It works by heating up the collagen fibers of the skin that are located in deeper underlying tissue. At the same time, the superficial skin layers are protected with a gentle cooling spray. The ThermaCool technology ensures a comfortable experience while a small tip sends CRF energy below the skin’s surface. A uniform heat “tells” the body to produce more collagen at the target site while also improving the makeup of current collagen. Simultaneously, Thermage FLX also encourages the existing tissue to tighten up so that you can see improvement before leaving the office.
One of the latest devices from the makers of Thermage is Thermage FLX, which is even faster than its predecessors. It is FDA-cleared to be used on the face and body—including the eyelids. Only one or two treatments are required for optimal results, but many clients do opt for additional Thermage FLX treatments months or years after their initial treatment. It is no surprise that there have been additional improvements in the 20+ years since Thermage was first introduced, such as the addition of vibration in 2009 to further increase comfort. The FLX of Thermage (Faster Algorithm Experience) has shortened treatment times by 33 percent so that the face and neck can now be treated in just one hour and the eyelids alone are treated in 20 minutes.
The Lasting Benefits of Thermage FLX
Many clients want to know how long the results will last, and it is not uncommon for Thermage FLX results to last for several years. Over two million people around the globe have had Thermage treatments with nearly zero reports of any unusual side effects. Common side effects can include some redness and swelling at the treatment site for a few days after the session.
Clients also sometimes want to know about Ultherapy. Ultherapy is another skin tightening technology that uses ultrasound tech rather than radiofrequency to garner results. However, Ultherapy is only designed for very small areas. Although it, too, only requires one or two treatments, results have shown that Thermage FLX provides a better outcome over Ultherapy to more people. Since we are dedicated to only providing clients with the best available technology and results, we have chosen to exclusively offer Thermage FLX at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care.
Skin Tightening Without Surgery
For years, the only option for skin tightening was invasive and potentially dangerous surgeries, complete with ample downtime and scarring. Thermage FLX changed that, giving clients the ability to tone and tighten their skin during their lunch hour. Skin laxity is often one of the earliest signs of aging, sometimes even before more obvious lines and wrinkles appear. Since Thermage FLX can be used just about anywhere on the body or face, you can regain control of your body and confidence in one easy treatment.
