There are a lot of things that get better with time. Unfortunately, that is not the case when it comes to our skin. Constant sun exposure and the natural aging process can lead to damaged skin and the development of aging signs such as fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. It is our goal here at Dr. Michael I. Jacobs, MD, to help each of our patents maintain the health and youthful glow of their skin. That is why, Dr. Michael Jacobs offers Thermage FLX treatments at his dermatology practice in New York City. Thermage FLX is is the newest generation of Thermage technologies designed to non-invasively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With this revolutionary system, you can achieve radiant and youthful skin.
What is Thermage FLX?
The specialized Thermage technology offers non-invasive and safe treatments for successfully reducing the appearance of aging concerns. Treatments utilize patented radiofrequency technology in order to gently heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of skin. This works on a cellular level to promote restoration, stimulate the production of new collagen, and tighten skin. The key to this revitalizing treatment lies within a new optimized energy delivery algorithm, known as AccuREP technology. AccuREP automatically measures and tunes the amount of energy delivered to the treatment area. With a new vibrating hand-piece, Thermage FLX helps enhance patient comfort. This specially designed technology also offers a larger treatment tip that reduces treatment time by 25%.
What to Expect During Treatment
Each treatment is personalized in order to address the specific needs and aesthetic goals of each patient through an initial consultation. The procedure requires no anesthesia. During treatment, the specialized tool is held to the selected area. As the radiofrequency energy penetrates and heats the deeper layers of skin, a cooling effect is used to promote optimal comfort and safety to the surface layers of skin. Patients will feel a light vibrating sensation as the technology works to encourage collagen production and tightening of the skin.
The entire process takes about 45 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area. Thermage FLX results can be seen as little as one day after treatment, with continued improvement over the next 6 months. Since it is non-invasive, most patients can return to their regular activities immediately after treatment. This simple, safe, and quick procedure is a rejuvenating remedy for reclaiming smooth and youthful skin with no down time!
