How many times have you looked in the mirror and found yourself unsatisfied by what you see? How many times have you gone to the gym to lose weight and tone your body, but come out unsatisfied with all your efforts? Instead of dreading what you see and feeling frustrated that all of your efforts aren’t creating the results you want, you may want to try an advanced treatment to refine your body. At InVogue Rejuvenation in El Paso, TX, we understand that FlexSure is an ideal treatment to lose unwanted weight and tighten areas of loose skin on the body.
How Does FlexSure Work?
FlexSure is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that can simultaneously melt pockets of unwanted fat and tighten loose skin. As a two-in-one treatment, many patients are satisfied by the power and efficiency of this treatment. FlexSure works by placing peel and stick applicators on various areas of the body; these applicators then generate deep heating that melts unwanted fat cells and stimulates collagen production to tighten skin.
This treatment will take about 15 minutes to complete and can be used on most areas of the body. This treatment can also provide temporary relief for muscle spasms and pain. Most people find this treatment to be a highly effective option to achieve both weight loss and body contouring goals.
The Wonder of Radiofrequency
The key to this treatment is radiofrequency energy, a gold star standard in modern aesthetic treatments. Radiofrequency is an energy source that generates thermal energy without harming the surface of the skin. This technology can deeply heat the tissues beneath the dermal layers to increase blood circulation, stimulate the production of collagen, and melt fine layers of unwanted fat.
Radiofrequency is a gentle yet powerful treatment that can be used at any age and for all skin tones. While there are many different radiofrequency treatments, FlexSure is an innovative body contouring treatment that can create significant improvement in the appearance of your body so you can look younger and feel more confident.
Where Can You Use This Treatment?
FlexSure is specifically designed to be used on hard-to-reach areas of the body. These are areas of the body where it’s difficult to exercise to reduce fat and tone loose skin. Some of these areas can include the underarms, inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
Although there are exercises that may be able to tighten these areas of the body, it can be difficult and time-consuming to try to lose weight in these small areas of the body. Instead of spending hours at the gym or trying different diets, this body contouring treatment can help you achieve your goals much more easily.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The number of treatments you will need will depend on various factors, such as how much unwanted fat you want to lose, how large your treatment areas are, and how many treat areas you want to treat. Most people will be able to see significant results with this treatment after three appointments, although some people may need at least five treatments for optimal results.
Your treatments will generally be placed about two weeks apart to allow for adequate time to produce collagen and for your body to naturally eliminate discarded fat cells. We can always add additional treatments if you want to treat other areas of the body or if you’re not fully satisfied with your results.
What Can You Expect From Treatment?
During your treatment, a peel applicator will be placed on the desired treatment area, such as unwanted curves. The applicator is flexible and conforms to your body to provide the most even treatment possible. Peel applicators come in various sizes to suit all treatment areas, so your treatment is completely customized to your exact needs.
Should You Prepare for Treatment?
You will not need to make many preparations for your treatment. If you are a fan of waxing or laser hair removal, then you may want to have these hair removal treatments at least two weeks before your first appointment and you may need to temporarily stop using these treatments until after your Flexsure treatments are complete. You can shave the desired treatment area at least 24 hours before your appointment.
It’s generally recommended to drink plenty of water before your appointment so your body can more easily discard unwanted fat cells and create more collagen. You should also be prepared to stop using certain skincare products on treatment areas, including mineral oils and certain body lotions with retinoids.
Will You Have Aftercare Guidelines?
After your treatment, you will not need to make any changes to your daily routine. In fact, most people go right back to work or their normal daily activities, including light to moderate exercises like yoga, walking, or Pilates. You may have a few after-care guidelines, such as instructions to avoid direct contact with the sun, avoiding self-tanning products and tanning beds, and avoiding hot water that can irritate the skin.
After your treatment, you can help your results develop more quickly by drinking plenty of water and by eating lighter meals for one to three days. You should also avoid drinking alcohol and using tobacco products until your immediate recovery is over.
How Quickly Will You See Results?
Most people will be able to see results in four to 10 weeks, depending on how many treatments they will need. If you only need one or two treatments to achieve your desired results, then you will see your results more quickly than those who require five or more treatments.
The general condition of your skin may also affect how soon your results develop. For example, younger people who have an easier time producing collagen may notice results more quickly than mature people who have a lower amount of collagen in their skin.
How Long Will Results Last?
The results of this treatment can last for several months for skin tightening goals. Radiofrequency stimulates new collagen production deep within the layers of the skin, but this collagen will only last for a few months before the natural aging process causes collagen to deplete.
For reducing unwanted fat cells, the result of this treatment can last much longer. Fat cells are incapable of regenerating, so when they are removed with an advanced heating technique, they will not be able to come back. That said the best way to maintain your weight and goals is to avoid gaining a significant amount of weight after you have achieved your desired results.
Is There a Best Age for This Treatment?
No, there is no best age for this treatment. However, many people who use this treatment are in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. This is the age bracket where skin laxity is most obvious and we’re reducing unwanted fat can become more challenging because of hormonal changes that make it more difficult to lose weight. Young people who want to achieve body goals can also use this treatment.
Is There a Best Time for This Treatment?
No, there is not any one best time for this treatment. This treatment uses discrete radiofrequency applicators that will not irritate the skin, so you can have this treatment during any time of the year at your convenience.
However, one of your aftercare guidelines is to avoid direct contact with the sun to prevent hyperpigmentation. If you are someone who struggles with wearing sunblock every day or if you are treating areas of the body that are exposed to sunlight more frequently, it may be easier for you to have your initial treatments during the fall and winter to avoid accidental sun exposure.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Most people who have skin tightening and fat reduction goals are good candidates for this treatment. This treatment is an appropriate choice regardless of your skin type or skin tone. And your BMI also does not matter for this treatment, which is unique among other body contouring treatments that will require you to be at an ideal body weight for your age and height.
