#WeekenderTries: Is Thermage FLX Worth The Hype?

Thermage FLX has become a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical approach to a more youthful appearance.

But with so many anti-ageing treatments on the market, is the hype around Thermage FLX justified? Team Weekender visited celebrity aesthetic doctor, Dr Gerard Ee from The Clifford Clinic to delve deeper into this treatment and see if it lives up to the buzz.

What is Thermage FLX?

Thermage FLX is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity, and its decline is a major contributor to wrinkles and sagging.

Thermage FLX uses a controlled heat source to target the deeper layers of the skin. This controlled heating triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased collagen production. The result? Firmer, tighter skin with a more youthful appearance.

Why the Hype?

Thermage FLX boasts several advantages that contribute to its popularity:
– Non-invasive: Unlike surgery, Thermage FLX doesn’t involve any cuts or injections, making it a more accessible option for many.
Minimal downtime: Most patients experience minimal to no downtime after the procedure, allowing them to resume their daily activities quickly.
– Gradual results: Thermage FLX results develop over time, offering a natural-looking improvement rather than a dramatic change.
– Targets multiple concerns: This treatment can address wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin and even improve the overall skin texture.

Does Thermage hurt?

During Thermage FLX treatment, you may experience localized heat and discomfort at specific points. However, the pain is significantly reduced thanks to the Comfort Pulse Technology and vibration pain relief feature and the device’s excellent cooling effect. Additionally, doctors can customize pain relief measures based on individual needs during the treatment, enhancing comfort. Therefore, there’s no need to worry; the pain is entirely manageable.

The Verdict

The hype surrounding Thermage FLX isn’t entirely unfounded. It offers a minimally invasive approach to addressing visible signs of aging. It has been two months since we performed the procedure, and we saw visible lifting effects on the skin. I can even choose to repeat the procedure one year later!
