Meet Thermage’s New FLXTM System

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted 510(K) clearance to Solta Medical’s new Thermage FLXTM System for smoothing skin on the face, eyes, and body.

The Thermage FLX features a new optimized energy delivery algorithm, known as AccuREPTM technology, which automatically measures and precisely tunes the amount of energy delivered to the patient and treatment area.  The system also features a new vibrating hand-piece to help enhance patient comfort, and a new, larger treatment tip that reduces treatment time by 25 percent.

“Being among the first adopters of the technology, I have confidently used the system for over a decade, as it is the center-piece of a successful skin tightening program,” says Michael S. Kaminer, MD, founding partner of SkinCare Physicians in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

The new Thermage FLX system is expected to be commercially available during the last quarter of 2017.
