There’s a New Thermage Available That You Need to Know About
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
There’s nothing worse than walking around with a face full of loose skin for the world to see. If surgery just isn’t in the cards for you, there are plenty of effective noninvasive treatments out there. For years, dermatologists and plastic surgeons have turned to Thermage to tighten the neck, jawline, eyelids, and even the body.
For as good as Thermage has been, there’s a new version of it on the block now, and it’s even better than the original.

Thermage FLX is the latest iteration of Thermage, and just like its predecessor, it too uses radio-frequency energy to heat the skin from the inside out. By delivering the energy deep below the surface of the skin in a uniform effect, the layers of skin where collagen is produced are heated to smooth out existing collagen and create new collagen.
Faster than the original Thermage (talk about bang for your buck—you get the tightening effect in about 25 percent less time), Thermage FLX can be used to address saggy skin on the entire face and body and is purportedly more comfortable, too, thanks to a new large vibrating handpiece that makes the procedure more tolerable.
Look for the new Thermage FLX treatments to be available at doctors' offices by the end of 2017.
