Thermage FLX is considered the gold standard for targeting volume loss and sagging skin without injecting, needling or downtime.

Non-invasive and rejuvenative, the treatment uses radiofrequency energy (RFE) to heat the skin’s dermis and stimulate new collagen production.

Gwyneth loves it. Jennifer loves it. It’s a celeb over 45 thing.

I tried it for the first time last year and was very happy with the results.

The recomendation for maintenence is a treatment every twelve months and this year, I added the eye area (to provide a lift) and the neck (beacuse THE NECK!!!)

I was in the safe hands of Dr Flora Galoustian at Skin Renu who has been practicing Thermage for two decades.

There is nothing about this treatment she does not know.

My Treatment Step-By-Step.

There is no sugar coating it – Thermage is truly painful. 

Particularly along the jaw line and the neck bones – anywhere there is less padding of fat or muscle – however the fuller parts of the face are more than manegable and didn’t hurt at all.

The key is the a highly skilled doctor that works from one side of the face to another and is sensitive to your pain threshold.

The appearance of my skin straight after the treatment was amazing.  There was no redness or swelling just genuine tightness that kept improving each day.

Thermage gives natural and real results which improve over time.

I’m a convert.

The beauty of this gentle heating treatment is that it tightens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen, all with little-to-no downtime for the patient. No special care is required afterward, aside from basic skin maintenance and sunscreen as part of a regular skincare regime.
