With just one treatment, Thermage FLX offers instant and long-lasting skin tightening on the face, eyes and body, achieving high patient satisfaction and cementing Thermage FLX as a practice essential.
A pioneer in skin tightening, Thermage FLX is a one-of-a-kind skin fitness treatment that tones and tightens skin on the face, body and eyes, offering noticeable results with a single treatment. It uses patented RF 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 collagen fibrils, causing an immediate contraction, resulting in skin tightening. Over the next few months, the secondary healing response continues as collagen is deposited and remodelled. This process tightens the skin further over time.
With over 50 published clinical studies proving its efficacy and comfort, and more than 2 million treatments performed worldwide, Thermage is the global leader in skin tightening.
‘We have been providing Thermage FLX treatments to our patients for about two years now,’ says Dr Ben Chan, Medical Director of Skintech Medical Cosmetic Skin Clinics and the Aesthetics & Skin Institute in Melbourne. ‘It is one of our most highly requested services and provides a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option for skin tightening where other aesthetics procedures are unsuitable.’
‘With Thermage FLX, we are seeing a smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles, tightening of the cheeks and jowls, and reduced appearance of nasolabial folds. We also perform Thermage FLX treatment on the eye area to improve fine lines, tighten loose skin and reduce hooded eyelids and more pronounced double eyelids.’
‘Thermage FLX has a strong reputation among our clientele and its proven efficacy gives our clinicians confidence in providing visible results and patient satisfaction.’
Thermage FLX and the patient journey
Thermage FLX has broad application that can treat on and off the face, making it a very useful workhorse in the aesthetic clinic.
‘The versatility of Thermage FLX is important to us – being able to treat the body and face, including the delicate eye area, helps provide a cost-effective, all-in-one rejuvenation method, rather than having the client undergo various procedures.’ Dr Chan explains.
The longevity of results from a single treatment also makes this a popular treatment with high patient satisfaction. ‘We generally observe skin tightening and collagen production in the areas treated for well over 12 months,’ he adds.
‘Thermage FLX is also perfect for patients who want to further enhance their results from other aesthetics procedures such as cosmetic injectables, or if they are afraid of needles or other invasive treatments. It also works well in tandem with other skin treatments such as lasers, peels and microneedling.
‘Having these complementary treatments work in synergy means that it prolongs the longevity of the results and delays the next time a client would need to come in, for example, for a filler top-up. This gives clients confidence that they have received value for money and helps build loyalty.’
Results + versatility = high ROI
Thermage FLX is at the forefront of the non-invasive skin-tightening technology category, differentiated by its instant tightening results and versatility in treating the face, eyelids and body with a single handpiece.
‘As a practice owner and clinician, you are often bombarded with countless devices from the medical aesthetics industry. Over the years we have “collected” many different machines for varying purposes, some of which are only very lightly used. I believe this is a common problem that many industry colleagues face,’ says Dr Chan.
‘Being able to treat the face, eyes and body with one handpiece and one device saves us additional costs and helps increase our ROI.
‘Every practice can benefit from having a non-surgical skin tightening device, and we would definitely recommend Thermage FLX as one of them. Most people can benefit from Thermage FLX, whether they are in their 20s or 50s, so we will continue to recommend it to our suitable patients.’ AMP
