Aging can do a number on your skin. Droopy eyes, fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin are a few of the natural effects of aging. But with new treatments, you don’t have to experience these any longer. Dr. Stella Matsuda and Dr. Shannon Sheu of Matsuda Dermatology in Honolulu are pleased to offer the Thermage FLXⓇ system, which painlessly addresses the signs of aging to give you smoother, tighter skin. Call the office or book an appointment online today to learn more about what Thermage FLX can do for you.
Thermage FLX is a radio-frequency treatment that’s used for skin smoothing and tightening treatments.
Thermage FLX is used to improve the appearance of your eyelids, skin, and jawline. The treatment lifts, smooths, and brightens your skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Thermage FLX works by delivering intense radio-frequency energy to heat the deep layers of your skin. Collagen, the rejuvenating protein in your skin, is activated by the heat and more healing proteins are made and sent throughout your skin. This causes healing at the deepest layer of your skin, resulting in a more youthful and clear complexion.
Once you make your consultation appointment online or by phone, the skilled providers at Matsuda Dermatology sit with you and review your medical history and your desired skin treatment goals, to see what Thermage FLX can offer for you.
Thermage FLX is almost painless because the system delivers cooling technology at the same time as the heating treatment in order to reduce any discomfort to your skin. Most patients don’t need any numbing cream on the skin during the treatment and feel little to no pain throughout.
As the most up-to-date radio-frequency treatment offered for skin care, Thermage FLX sessions only last from a couple of minutes to just under an hour, depending on the number of skin irregularities that you and your provider want addressed.
Typically, the treatment has no side effects. You could experience a bit of reddening the day of the treatment, which goes away within 24 hours.
The number of Thermage FLX treatments you need depends on many things, including the size of the area you’re treating. Your provider discusses treatment length during your initial consultation.
Most patients see results within a month or two of their treatment. Some patients see results even sooner. It all depends on the area being treated.
