These days, aging gracefully doesn’t mean sitting back while time, gravity and environmental elements do a number on your skin. With the advancements in technology, aging gracefully can mean realizing that there are still things that you can actually control—the loss of collagen, for one.
Collagen is the protein that gives skin its resilience and bounce. It starts to deteriorate in your 30s, and without it, the skin’s texture and appearance begins to resemble a deflated balloon that’s been left out in the sun too long. Thankfully, advancements in skincare technology have given us more products and procedures that counteract collagen deterioration.
The new Thermage FLX is one certified collagen booster that gives us hope when things are beginning to going south. It’s ideal for women in their 30s and upward who are beginning to see their jawlines sag, their eyelids droop and their cheeks deflate. Just like its predecessors, Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency to jolt collagen awake, causing the body to produce more, and to tighten saggy areas. Patients get smoother, more taut skin minus the downtime and without having to undergo the knife. But going beyond the promise of older Thermage machines, the FLX provides more instantaneous results, stimulates and regenerates collagen quicker, and promises longer-lasting outcomes.
Genetics, sun exposure and lifestyle habits (i.e., smoking, working like a madman, partying like a rockstar, not getting enough sleep) also contribute to collagen’s gradual loss, which is why folks in their 20s who want a more refreshed, contoured face are also eligible for the magic of Thermage FLX.
Rising star and Thermage FLX ambassador Sue Ramirez has always felt conscious about her double chin, and though only in her 20s, gets Thermage to address this problem. “When I look in the mirror and when I take selfies, I just see my double chin. It’s always been a big insecurity of mine,” the young actress relates. “And commonly when my fans see me in person, nagugulat sila kasi maliit yung face ko pero may naka-protrude na double chin and tapos wala akong jaw.”
Thermage has helped tighten Sue’s jawline, contoured her cheeks, and has given her that v-shaped face that’s now all the rage among K-Beauty fans. She recently tried the new Thermage FLX and loves how it gave her instant tightening results. “I can really see the difference between this one and what I did last year. Thermage FLX is way faster. I saw the effects immediately,” she enthuses. “And the best thing about it is there is no downtime. I always say that Thermage is like magic.”
