About Thermage FLX
Thermage Flx is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy that can smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. The radiofrequency technology delivers heat into the deep, collagen rich layers of the skin. The applied heat separates the water molecules from the fibrous collagen, causing an immediate contraction, resulting in skin tightening. Thermage Flx is able to treat wrinkles and loose skin on the face, around the eyes and on the body.
