What is Thermage FLX?
As we age, collagen in our skin breaks down, which leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, skin sagging and loosening. Thermage® FLX is known for non-invasively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Thermage is the only US FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for the eyes. This treatment can effectively and safely treat fine lines and wrinkles on most body parts including the face, neck, eyes, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks, without having to go under the knife or endure multiple injections.
Thermage utilizes the patented Mono-polar Capacitive Radio-frequency (RF) technology to deliver heat safely and uniformly into the skin layers and renew the collagen, resulting in immediate skin tightening and a well-defined three-dimensional skin contour.
AccuREPTM technology auto-tunes each pulse of energy for an even more precise and consistent treatment, suited to your skin. This gentle heating tightens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen, all with little-to-no downtime for the patient.
How does Thermage FLX treatment work?
Thermage uses radio frequency technology to heat the deep layers of the skin, causing collagen fibres to contract, instantly improving the appearance of sagging or loose skin, and giving you a smoother, firmer and younger look.
The device works below the surface to heat the deep layers of your skin, helping to remodel existing collagen and stimulate new collagen.
Thermage works in a single treatment with no downtime and delivers natural results.
What can Thermage FLX treat?
Thermage procedure can effectively and safely treat fine lines and wrinkles on most body parts, including the face, neck, eyes, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks. Thermage can also smooth uneven, dimpled skin on the body and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What to expect during the procedure?
Each time the Thermage FLX device touches your skin, you will feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for collagen re-modelling. You will also feel a gentle vibration sensation for added patient comfort. Throughout the procedure, your doctor will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results.
What to take note of Thermage FLX pre- and post-treatments?
Thermage should be performed one month before or after you get injectables. For post-treatment, patients may proceed to apply makeup and shower as usual. Sunscreen use is highly recommended to protect the skin from any sun damage.

Visible results may appear over time in the course of your body’s natural collagen-rebuilding process.
