We are excited to offer the fourth and latest generation Thermage FLX.
CORAL GABLES, FL, February 22, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Principal physician Dr. Shaun Patel announced on Friday that Miami Skin and Vein is the very first practice in the United States to offer Thermage FLX. Dr. Patel said that Thermage FLX is the foremost treatment option for mild to moderate skin laxity.
"We are excited to offer the fourth and latest generation Thermage FLX," he said. "Thermage was first approved by the FDA in 2002, and is the gold standard for nonsurgical skin tightening. Over 50 clinical papers have been published on it and over 2 million Thermage treatments have been performed to date. We consider it the foundation of any skin tightening treatment protocol."
Thermage FLX is the only FDA-approved treatment for revising sagging skin in the eyelids. Dr. Patel also recommends it for patients who want to tighten the skin on their face, jawline, neck and other areas of the body.
Thermage technology heats the skin with gentle, precisely targeted radiofrequency energy. This encourages the development of collagen, which gives skin its elasticity and youthful look.
The new Thermage FLX enhances patient comfort with a vibrating hand piece, and the length of sessions has been reduced by as much as one-quarter due to the larger treatment area. The device's AccuREP technology ensures that the patient's skin receives the optimal amount of energy by precisely calculating and tuning the radiofrequency waves with every pulse. This results in more efficient treatment and greater predictability of results.
The Miami area is known for its diversity. Dr. Patel said that he is pleased to offer Thermage FLX not only because of its efficacy but for its ability to help patients of all skin types and ethnicities overcome loose, sagging skin.
