As we age, collagen in our skin breaks down, which leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, skin sagging and loosening. Thermage® FLX Skin Tightening Procedures utilize the patented Mono-polar Capacitive Radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver heat safely and uniformly into the skin layers and renew the collagen, resulting in an immediate skin tightening and a well-defined three-dimensional skin contour.1,2,3
AccuREPTM technology auto-tunes each pulse of energy for an even more precise and consistent treatment, suited to your skin.4 New Total Tip 4.0 can speed up treatment by up to 25% and the multidirectional vibration also offers a more comfortable experience for face and body treatments.4,5,6
