Using patented monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology, the non-invasive treatment safely heats up the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin to reveal a smoother, younger, and tighter looking skin.

Thermage FLX is a premier and effective skin tightening treatment that combats the loss of skin elasticity in order to effectively treat wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes, face, neck and body. Using patented monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology, the non-invasive treatment safely heats up the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin to reveal a smoother, younger, and tighter looking skin. With no downtime, the effects continue to improve for up to six months following a single procedure that can last up to 1 to 2 years.
What is Thermage FLX?
Available in Singapore, Thermage is the first radiofrequency (RF) device that treats periorbital, facial and body wrinkles, and provides temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. As compared to bipolar RF, Thermage FLX’s monopolarity provides deeper penetration into the skin to heat dermal tissue down to the subcutaneous fat and tissue.
As ageing occurs, the collagen in your body that keeps the skin firm breaks down, which causes the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. With no cutting or needles, the non-surgical Thermage system focuses heat to specific areas of the skin to kickstart the body’s natural collagen renewal process for younger looking skin. When heat is applied in the skin’s deeper layers, existing collagen is remodeled while encouraging new collagen production, which results in an improvement in the appearance of loose or sagging skin.
How does Thermage FLX work?
Thermage treatment starts with the placement of a grid, which guides the application of the handpiece to a specific area on the skin. It has a specially-designed tip that is placed against the skin in targeted treatment areas. Radiofrequency energy penetrates deeply into the skin’s tissue, and heats the treatment areas to remodel the skin’s existing collagen and stimulate production of new collagen for a more youthful, younger-looking skin overall. Each pulse of the machine delivers customised radiofrequency to every inch of the treatment area, followed by a double cryogen cooling effect.
