Thermage FLX is a premium, non-invasive skin tightening treatment used to boost collagen production. It uses energy focussed radio frequency which tightens, smooths and contours your skin.

Generally from over the age of 35 is when you may start to experience mild to moderate skin laxity. If you have sun damage, the results will only be effective if it’s moderate.

Thermage FLX is a pain free, non surgical procedure. The treatment involves mild vibration of the face, which can be soothing for patients. A short heating sensation may be experienced when the device touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation that will protect your skin and minimise discomfort.
Throughout the procedure, your clinician will check-in with you regarding the temperature to ensure you are comfortable. You may take over-the-counter pain medication 2 hours prior to your treatment, however most patients are able to complete treatment without the need of pain relief.
The procedure takes approximately 45 mins for the face, and 90 mins for other body parts. This timing all depends on the size, location and condition of the treated area. You can expect to return to your usual routine straight after a procedure.
After treatment there may be some temporary redness or minor swelling, however this will begin to disappear after 24hours.
Before commencing any medical procedure your history will be reviewed at an initial consultation.
