You’ve Googled “how to get rid of loose skin”, “Thermage treatment near me” and “Thermage CPT vs Thermage FLX”, not to mention a number of before and after photos and have finally decided you’re going to take the plunge and do something about the loose skin that’s been irking you.

5 Things No One Tells You…

  1. Make sure you’re getting what you pay for
  2. You are not going to look like you’ve had surgery
  3. Have a little patience
  4. You can have any area of skin treated
  5. Not all radiofrequency treatments are equal
  6. See Secret Number 6

Smoother Skin In Just One Treatment

First of all, let me just say, good choice! Thermage has been around for decades and has an excellent safety record. Thermage skin tightening is also a go-to treatment for celebrities (we’re talking about the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow) because of the natural-looking but effective results; not to mention the distinct lack of recovery time so that they can float straight out of the clinic and no one would have any clue that they’ve just had a treatment.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment

So, we know that Thermage tightens your skin and that A-listers love it, but what else is there to know about this non-surgical treatment? I’ve called upon nurse Jane Lewis, The Skin to Love Clinic’s Thermage expect. Jane is, in fact, not just the Clinics expert but an expert the world over; once the trainer for all Thermage providers in the UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, she’s had clients flock to her from all corners of the globe to have a Thermage treatment with her. Who better to give you insider knowledge on this skin-tightening treatment? Here are her top tips when considering a Thermage treatment:

thermage flx

1. Your Thermage Cost: Make sure you’re getting what you pay for

“When you have a Thermage treatment, the practitioner will use a single treatment ‘tip’ which they attach to the device. This single-use tip is exclusively for your treatment and contains the exact amount of Thermage energy pulses that you should have during your treatment. It’s important that you see your practitioner open a new Thermage tip for your treatment.

This will be in a sealed plastic pouch within a small, branded box. The reason I labour on this point is that, during my time as a trainer, one of the areas I identified as a ‘training need’ was some practitioners told me that their clinic would book in Thermage clients and often would only use half the treatment tip on each person because the schedule wouldn’t allow for a full treatment; a few said they only used half the treatment tips energy on a client and then used the remaining half on the next client.

This meant that their client would miss out on fifty per cent of the Thermage energy which naturally will impact their results. Of course, I advised them that this was absolutely not to be done as the client would not see the benefit. After their training, I would follow up with the clinic to see what results they had started to get, and all had seen greater patient satisfaction. Most Thermage providers will understand the importance of using one full tip per client, but I think it’s important to be aware and to know what to look for.”

2. You are not going to look like you’ve had surgery

“Thermage is a type of non-surgical skin tightening. It is a radiofrequency treatment that involves no needles and no surgery, ideal if you can’t afford to have any downtime after your treatment and don’t want to have a surgical procedure. I’ll talk more about this later, but Thermage uses your skins natural rejuvenating mechanisms to achieve your results. This means that you are always going to end up looking like you; so many of us worry about looking like a different person after a cosmetic procedure.

We are not removing skin during a Thermage treatment, we are rejuvenating the elements of your skin and tissue that give you youthful, tighter skin. If you want or need, to have skin removed then you will need to have cosmetic surgery to achieve that kind of result.”

3. Have a little patience

“I mentioned earlier that Thermage triggers the repair and rejuvenation system within your skin. This means that your existing collagen contracts and gets some of its bounce back, and also your skin is tricked into creating beautiful new collagen to help firm, smooth and tighten the area you are concerned about.

As practitioners, we carefully apply the Thermage energy to the exact area you want to improve and then it’s a little bit of waiting game whist your body takes over and does the rest. As with most skin treatments, this doesn’t happen overnight and can take a few months for you to see your full results, although most of us notice positive changes in our skin in the lead up to this.”

Facts About Thermage

  • It is a non-invasive treatment
  • It gives natural-looking and effective results
  • You can have an area of skin treated
  • There are two types, namely Termage FLX and Thermage CPT (our favourite)
  • It is a non-surgical radiofrequency treatment

4. You can have any area of skin treated

“As humans, we tend to focus on just our problem area-‘I want to treat my face with Thermage so that’s the area Thermage treats’-however, Thermage is fantastic in that it can treat pretty much any area of skin that we want to treat! The most popular treatments in my Clinic are Thermage eyes, Thermage stomach, Thermage neck, Thermage arms and Thermage knees and thighs. The treatment areas are almost limitless!”

5. Not all radiofrequency treatments are equal

“There are many radiofrequency treatments available both in-clinic and for home use. They are not all the same and are not all equal. I’ll firstly touch on the at-home radiofrequency devices; they are not as powerful as professional devices and therefore it will take a lot longer for you to achieve results with these. The main point I think we should know is that the deeper the treatment energy goes into your skin, the longer the results tend to last.

Cheaper beauty devices are often more superficial and generally, you need to have a course of treatments. Clinical treatment devices such as Thermage are usually far more powerful and provide a more intense treatment. Thermage is also a single treatment so, conveniently, you don’t have to keep going back for treatment sessions.”

Thermage Reviews Bonus 6. She prefers Thermage CPT to Thermage FLX

I know we said ‘5 things’ but we couldn’t leave without including this!

“I have the Thermage CPT device in my Hertfordshire skin clinic nevertheless, when the Thermage FLX was launched I was eager to try it out and was luckily one of the first allowed to do so. However, after some debate and trials on my clients who have had multiple Thermage CPT treatments with me, I decided that my preference was definitely the Thermage CPT for client comfort. Clients from my trial reported that, in terms of results, they had no preference between the CPT and FLX.”

    I'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

    I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

    I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

    Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

    I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

    Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

    Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
