When it comes to beauty, people have unique preferences in terms of texture, technique, technology and more. But one thing’s for sure, everyone wants smooth, radiant and bouncy skin. This, however, is getting harder to achieve. Besides actual ageing, we are increasingly exposed to environmental aggressors like pollution, harsh UV rays and extreme climates. Then, there’s a whole other type of stress when we’re indoors, like deadlines or dating, and blue light—it's emitted from every single screen. This is why there are more people who invest in treatments that are fast-acting and effective. At the forefront of this is Solta Medical, one of the world’s most notable names in medical aesthetics that introduced leading non-invasive anti-ageing treatment Thermage® over 15 years ago. Today, the new generation Thermage FLX promises even faster results.


The global leader in non-invasive skin tightening, Thermage is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The treatment has been the go-to choice for many patients concerned with signs of ageing on their face, neck, arms and even buttocks and knees. Over two million Thermage treatments have been performed to date, and it’s the only FDA-approved non-invasive eye skin tightening treatment. It was also awarded Best New Technology by The Aesthetic Guide in 2017.


The "FLX" in Thermage FLX is short for Faster aLgorithm eXperience. It is designed with AccuREPTM technology for personalised tightening and lifting, employing a new treatment algorithm that optimises the radiofrequency energy output for precise, gentle heating that’s customised to your skin. Comfort Pulse Technology that intersperses cooling bursts works with the multidirectional tip vibration to ensure comfort throughout the session. It’s all aided by the new Total Tip 4 that offers up to 25 percent faster results. What you get is immediate skin tightening and a well-defined three-dimensional skin contour, all in a single treatment without surgery, with little to no downtime. Your skin condition will continue to improve for the next six months, with results lasting up to a year.


Targeting the skin’s dermis layer where collagen fibres are found, Thermage uses patented radiofrequency technology that delivers a uniform heating effect, penetrating deep into the collagen-rich layers of the skin. In turn, this gentle heating causes existing collagen tissue to tighten, stimulates the production of new collagen, and helps to define contours. Together with Comfort Pulse Technology and AccuREPTM, these pulsations are delivered more precisely and gently. Each treatment takes about 45 minutes for face and 90 minutes for body depending on the size, location, and condition of the area to be treated.
