What is Belo Thermage FLX? FAQs on Thermage Treatment Answered

By Ysabel Vitangcol on July 26, 2023

You’ve seen that ~snatch~ on your favourite Belo babies. You might be curious, what’s the secret behind their youthful looks?  If you’re tired ending up with empty promises and a cluttered bathroom cabinet, Belo Thermage FLX may be the answer to that! If you’re wondering how this treatment can whisk away the years, we’ve got your questions covered.

What exactly is Thermage FLX?

Known as the gold standard for tissue tightening, this non-invasive procedure is a revolutionary skincare treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to tighten, lift, and rejuvenate your skin. It can be done on your face as well as your other body parts, such as your neck, abdomen and arms, and the results will last you for up to 10-12 months.

What’s the Thermage FLX treatment like?

Thermage FLX works its magic by delivering controlled radiofrequency energy deep into the layers of your skin. This energy gently heats the targeted tissues, stimulating collagen production and tightening existing collagen fibers. Collagen is the protein responsible for maintaining skin’s firmness and elasticity, but since it declines as we age, it causes pesky wrinkles and sagging. (LOOK: What exactly is the ‘Triangle of Youth’?)

By encouraging the growth of new collagen and remodeling existing collagen, Thermage FLX firms up loose skin, smoothes wrinkles, and gives you that coveted youthful glow.

Is it painful?

The treatment is designed to be comfortable, and our patients report only mild discomfort during the procedure. Anesthesia or numbing creams are optional, too. 

How long is a Thermage FLX session?

One of the perks of Thermage FLX is that it’s quick! A typical session lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. You can even do it during your lunch break and return to work, gaining the nickname here in Belo a “lunchtime lift”.

When will I see the results, and how long does this last?

You can see results almost instantly after the treatment, though very subtle. It may take a bit of time to unveil, around 2-3 months. Over time, your collagen production will improve, and the results will improve from there.


What exactly is the “Triangle of Youth”? 💫 Composed of high cheekbones, full cheeks & a well-defined jawline, these make up a youthful look. Unfortunately, due to aging, an “inverted triangle” becomes inevitable. Stick around and find out how #BeloThermageFLX can turn back the clock and this slow down! ⏳

How many sessions of Thermage FLX do I need?

Though many of our Belo doctors recommend doing this only once a year, it’s still best to discuss with them during your consultation your aesthetic goals. The number of sessions will also depend on your skin’s condition, among others.

What side effects should I expect?

Some patients may experience minor redness or swelling, but it usually disappears within a few hours. You can resume your normal activities right after the treatment, which means no downtime to worry about!

What’s the difference between other skin lifting treatments, such as Sofwave and Ulthera?

All treatments have their distinguished ‘intensities’, and results may vary depending on the patient’s age and severity of skin laxity. This is why we always recommend a consultation with one of our Belo doctors in order for them to recommend what procedure best suits the patient’s needs.

Do I need to maintain the results of Thermage FLX? How can I do that?

We also have other non-invasive, skin lifting treatments to help you achieve the lifted and healthy skin of your dreams. For a combination of radiofrequency and direct current, we got Skin Reboot – which helps lift, tighten, redensify and decongest skin, perfect for treating skin laxity, as well as the Renova Powerfacial, one of our cutting edge treatments that is synonymous to combining a Glass Skin Facial, Powerpeel, Inara and “baby Ulthera” in one – which addresses skin texture issues, improving skin one & skin recovery and treating skin tightening and lifting.

Body contouring treatments such as Onda Coolwaves (fat melting, skin tightening and treating cellulite), iWave (treating stubborn fat reduction, addressing cellulite and improving skin texture), Emsculpt (muscle toning), and V-Contour (a fat-melting injectible) will also help sculpt desired areas. Depending on your goals as well as your body/skin type, your Belo physician will recommend the best treatments to maximise results!
