What is the first sign of aging? Whether you said lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, or skin laxity, you’re right. All of these common first signs of aging are caused by a combination of factors including sun damage, gravity, genetics, and of course lost collagen. Collagen is our own natural fountain of youth, but our bodies make less of it as we get older. Creams and lotions that are infused with collagen aren’t harmful, but they aren’t actually doing any good. If you really want to look younger naturally and without surgery, a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that stimulates collagen production is necessary.

Just the right heat temperature delivered to the right layer of tissue can make your body start producing more collagen exactly where you need it. Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency to “tell” the body to start making more collagen and can be used virtually anywhere on the body. Some of the most popular treatment sites are around the eyes, jowls, cheeks, abdomen, and arms. Thermage FLX has the precision to treat even the most delicate of areas (around the eyes), giving you the option of delaying surgical skin tightening procedures for years, such as a facelift or eyelid lift.
Thermage FLX Skin Tightening Benefits
In just a single treatment, you can enjoy a reduction in skin laxity that lasts approximately one year. Annual Thermage FLX treatments can help you sustain results and fall in love with your skin all over again. This technology works by delivering bulk heat to the skin’s surface without visibly damaging the skin. There is minimal downtime or recovery period, though it is common for skin to look a bit pink and sun-kissed immediately after the treatment. You will start to notice results about one month after your Thermage FLX session and those results will continue to improve in the following weeks.
Collagen production is not automatic, whether produced naturally as a teen or through collagen induction treatments like Thermage FLX and Ultherapy. It takes time, which is why non-surgical skin tightening treatments require a little patience. However, you will start to see results a few weeks after the treatment as collagen production begins to surge. The latest Thermage FLX device also includes a vibrating, cooling tip on the applicator for enhanced comfort and results. You can sit back and enjoy this lunchtime procedure as the heat separates the water molecules from fibrous collagen, which does lead to immediate contraction—in other words, skin tightening. This means that you will leave your appointment with tauter skin, but rest assured that the real, full results are yet to come.
