The latest generation of Thermage®

The latest generation of Thermage®

What is Theramge FLX, the fifth generation Thermage?

Theramge FLX is the latest model in the Thermage non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle removal system family. It is designed for non-invasive tightening, wrinkle removal, and sculpting treatments. It is currently the only instrument with FDA certification for non-invasive eyelid treatment, achieving significant results in a single treatment. Its advantages, such as being non-invasive and having no downtime, make it known as the gold standard in radiofrequency skin tightening treatments.

Thermage utilizes patented radiofrequency technology to deliver radiofrequency energy through the treatment head, selectively heating the deep layers of the skin with a treatment depth of up to 4.3mm. This stimulates the growth of collagen, enhances skin elasticity, and improves skin smoothness and texture, achieving a tightening and wrinkle-reducing effect. It can generally be applied to various areas such as the face, eye area, neck, chest, abdomen, thighs, and more.

The breakthrough AccuREP® technology allows precise adjustment and optimization of the radiofrequency energy delivered in each pulse during the treatment. This ensures that the output energy of each pulse fits your skin's needs. The use of the new generation intelligent probe 4.0 can save up to 25% of treatment time, while the improved full-range vibration mode enhances treatment comfort.

The latest generation of Thermage achieves skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and lifting in a single treatment, collectively known as the six major improvements: lifting, pulling, tightening, refining, tenderizing, and whitening. These six words summarize the characteristics of the fifth generation Thermage: Lifting – lifts sagging facial contours, replenishes skin collagen; Pulling – provides skin with a lifting effect, smoothing out fine facial wrinkles; Tightening – restores skin elasticity, tightens the skin; Refining – improves enlarged pores, allowing pores to shrink and restore radiance; Tenderizing – improves rough skin; Whitening – removes dullness and restores radiance.

TTheramge FLX Fifth Generation Thermage Treatment Principle

With the increase in age, the breakdown of collagen, which is responsible for maintaining skin tightness, leads to sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles in the skin. 

With the increase in age, the breakdown of collagen, which is responsible for maintaining skin tightness, leads to sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles in the skin.


The applied heat separates water molecules from fibrous collagen, causing contraction and tightening of the skin. 

In the coming months, the secondary repair process continues as collagen deposits and reshaping take place.

Over time, the growth of new collagen will further tighten the skin.

After one treatment, the skin becomes smoother and tighter, with continuous improvement lasting for up to six months.

Collagen loss leads to wrinkles and signs of aging: Utilizing the characteristics of immediate contraction when collagen in the dermal layer reaches 45-60 degrees Celsius, electromagnetic waves are used to generate heat by the skin's resistance, reaching deep layers of the skin.

Using monopolar radiofrequency technology to conduct heat to the dermal layer and subcutaneous tissue: Precise heating of the entire dermal tissue, even subcutaneous fat tissue, stimulates the growth of collagen molecules and promotes metabolic renewal.



Skin tissue tightens and continues to produce collagen: Immediate and sustained skin reactions occur, allowing aging and sagging skin to experience an uplifting, firming, and smooth lifting effect after treatment.

Thermage treatment preparation:

  • Drink plenty of water on the day of treatment.
  • Avoid injecting Botox two weeks before treatment and hyaluronic acid one month before.
  • Discontinue the use of acidic products two days before treatment.
  • Moisturize the skin the night before treatment, such as using a hydrating mask. Ensure adequate sleep.
  • Do not wash your face with hot water, steam, or practice hot yoga the day before treatment.
  • Patients with melasma or butterfly pigmentation need to consult with an expert for personalized energy treatment.
  • Treatment is not recommended for individuals with pacemakers, thyroid issues, or active herpes.
  • Do not wear any metal jewelry (including earrings and necklaces) on the day of treatment. Inform in advance if there is metal in the teeth or face.

Post Thermage self-check and precautions:

  • Facial redness and swelling may occur after Thermage, which is normal and usually resolves within 48 hours. If there is localized tenderness (e.g., under the jawline, cheekbones), it is generally temporary and can be relieved within two weeks.
  • Edema: Swelling may occur and typically subsides within 5 days.
  • Mild or moderate pain: Generally temporary and localized to the treatment area.
  • Burns, blisters, scabs, and scars: Related to excessive heat during treatment, leading to burns and subsequent blistering, scab formation, and the possibility of scarring.
  • Abnormal sensations: Local numbness, tingling, or temporary paralysis generally recover within 2-6 weeks.
  • Do not wash your face with hot water within 1 week after treatment (use water not exceeding body temperature).
  • Avoid high-temperature environments, sauna, and intense exercise within 48 hours after the procedure.
  • Avoid sun exposure within 2 weeks after treatment, enhance hydration, and use high moisturizing products.
  • Avoid smoking, staying up late, and high-temperature environments such as saunas and hot yoga within 1 month.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Will stopping Thermage accelerate aging? Will it create dependence?

    • No, it won't accelerate aging. Stopping Thermage does not make you age faster. Thermage helps in collagen regeneration, so its effects can slow down the aging process. It doesn't create dependence.
  2. How long after the treatment can I resume normal skincare?

    • After treatment, if there is no redness, blisters, or discomfort on the skin surface, you can proceed with hydrating, moisturizing, and sun protection.
  3. Does Thermage hurt? Is no pain equal to no effect?

    • Pain is within a bearable range. If there is no pain, it may indicate that the energy is set too low, leading to reduced effectiveness.
  4. Is it necessary to do Thermage every year?

    • Whether to do it depends on your needs. If economically feasible and you have high expectations for maintaining skin firmness over an extended period, Thermage is generally recommended annually.
  5. How soon can you see the effects of Thermage?

    • Thermage has an immediate effect, with 20% visible results in 1-2 weeks. The optimal and noticeable results usually appear within one month, continuing up to three to six months.
  6. How long can the effects of Thermage last?

    • Thermage results can last 1-2 years. The first 1-6 months show better effects, and although there may be some decline in the later stages, it won't be worse than the original condition. However, the duration of maintenance varies from person to person due to different lifestyles.
