Combination of treatments to firm sagging skin of face and neck: monopolar radiofrequency Thermage FLX + FTC PDO threads and / or silhouette threads

The combination of the radiofrequency of Thermage FLX and the FTC or silhouette threads offers a superior result when it comes to treating flaccidity and firming sagging skin.

Each technique separately increases and reinforces the production of collagen, so the union of both gets an even greater increase. It does not consist simply of combining the benefits of each treatment to reaffirm, but its union further enhances the results and benefits of each to treat flaccidity.

Thus, Thermage first activates the formation of collagen and contracts by heat and from 1-2 weeks we inject the threads that will act on a skin already “activated and more receptive” increasing the final result in better firmness and faster.

Protocol for the eyes: Thermage FLX to firm the flaccid skin of the eyelid

This procedure to treat flaccidity of the skin of the eyelids and periocular consists of doing a session of Thermage FLX with a specific “tip” of eyes that manages to tighten the skin of the upper and lower eyelids, besides opening the eyes as it raises the eyebrow.

In some cases, after the Thermage FLX session to treat flaccidity, the first Fraxel Dual laser session is performed to erase the fine wrinkles of the eye contour. Fraxel sessions can be from 2 to 4 (1 every 30 days).
The combination of both procedures is perfect because they work at all levels of the skin: epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The Fraxel Dual laser works on the epidermis and most superficial dermis, while the radiofrequency Thermage FLX acts on the deep dermis and on the subcutaneous tissue.

The results are observed immediately and are improving up to 6 months later. Depending on the skin quality and the natural aging process, the results can last for years.

Characteristics of Thermage FLX radiofrequency technology

Thermage FLX uses a patented medical technology of monopolar radiofrequency to firm sagging skin of face and neck that heats, with absolute security, the deepest layers of the skin contracting at the moment and stimulating the existing collagen and creating new collagen. Thus, the skin acquires a younger and firmer appearance from the deeper layers.

Dr. Adriana Ribé, Dermatopathologist and Director of Ribe Clinic, performs a specific protocol for each patient to reaffirm the face and neck defining firming tension lines. It is applied in any skin color and at any time of the year.

When the skin begins to lose smoothness and looks flaccid, from 35-40 years and we want to reaffirm. It is not as effective in very advanced ages when the flaccidity is very marked. Thus, it is important to perform at early ages as treatment and prevention of flaccidity. According to surveys of the American society of dermatology, the number of lifting practiced in the population since this treatment of Thermage FLX is done to reaffirm at an early age has decreased.

This treatment to reaffirm the skin with flaccidity only needs a session of an hour and a half approximately, without anesthesia. The benefits of firming the face can last about 2 years depending on the type of skin.
