Thermage FLX FAQ 2021

We currently offer the newest generation Thermage FLX technology which is both FDA and TGA approved. Our clinics can be found listed on the official Thermage Australia website. You may visit https://thermage.com.au/find-a-clinic/ and search “Skintech” to verify. We also ensure that we use authentic Thermage tips and have the device serviced by the company provider themselves.

There are many versions of skin tightening machines on the market that utilise RF technology. While some of them come from reputable competitor companies, many are unfortunately knock-offs that are not TGA-approved. While there are different levels of RF treatments, some of which Skintech offers as well, Thermage remains as the gold standard for RF skin tightening trusted by medical professionals around the world. Ensuring that you are receiving an authentic Thermage treatment according to the official clinical protocols is critical for your safety and peace of mind.

For most patients, the neocollagenesis process takes place over 2 to 6 months post treatment, so your results will develop over that time. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. However, you will often start to observe some skin tightening straight after the procedure due to the heat energy. Results will typically last 1 to 2 years, although we do have patients who notice that it can be longer than that. Every patient’s biology and anatomy is different, so your Thermage experience may be unique to you.

Unlike many cosmetic procedures requiring multiple sessions, Thermage FLX delivers results after a single treatment. Best of all, results will continue to improve over time. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to RF energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, patients will benefit from additional treatments once a year for maintenance. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process. In addition, we may recommend pairing Thermage with other treatments such as lasers, threads and radiofrequency to enhance the effect over time.

Unlike some other procedures, Thermage involves no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime, and Thermage works on all skin types on and off the face. While laser treatments and other radio frequency procedures also smooth the surface of the skin, no other treatment heats as deeply as Thermage. By heating the innermost layers of skin, Thermage is very effective at renewing collagen, which results in smooth, sleek skin and an overall younger looking appearance.

However, there are many factors in play when it comes to treating ageing skin, and what works for someone else may be different to what works for you. One needs to take into consideration the severity of the skin sagging and laxity, among other things. During your consultation, we will be able to make a proper assessment and provide you with a tailored treatment plan.

No. Unlike surgery, there is no pre-procedure preparation such as blood work or fasting. And there is no special care required after treatment, aside from basic skin maintenance and sunscreens as part of a regular skincare regimen. Since Thermage has little to no downtime, most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. Some patients exhibit a temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually goes away within 24 hours. Please keep this in mind if you have any special events to attend, although most of our patients find that it is sufficient to apply mineral makeup to cover up if needed. If you have any concerns, please feel free to speak to your Skintech professional during your consultation for more clarification.

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. Thermage treatments average about 45 minutes for the face and up to 90 minutes for other parts of the body, depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated. Since Thermage is a short procedure and a single treatment, it fits into your busy lifestyle. This treatment time might be extended if the client requests to take a break in between for a more comfortable experience, which we are happy to accommodate for. To be safe, please set aside at least 2 hours on the day to complete your Thermage treatment.
