Chances are you might have already heard of Thermage FLX, the Belo treatment that Anne Curtis, Marian Rivera, and Coleen Garcia are currently endorsing. Its claim to fame? It’s an anti-aging treatment that takes only 45 minutes and provides instant but lasting results.
Anne herself expressed how Thermage FLX is helping her skin stay youthful and fresh-looking. “With how much I work out and all the running I do, it’s important that I maintain the collagen on my face,” she said in a Belo interview.
You might be wondering about the other benefits of Thermage FLX, so we’ve rounded them up for you.
1. It's non-invasive.
Thermage FLX uses monoplanar frequency, a type of radiofrequency energy that targets the deeper layers of the skin and effectively tightens saggy, loose areas. In other words, you get a face lift without any surgical procedure at all.
2. It boosts collagen production.
The treatment itself heats up the skin from the inside out, signaling existing collagen to exit the body and immediately tightening the skin. As a result, your skin produces more collagen and elastin, giving you a smoother, plumper complexion.
3. It gives you visible, natural-looking results.
Perhaps you've heard rumors that facial treatments can leave your skin looking "stiff" and unnatural. But if you’ve seen the "before and after" pictures of Amy Perez, you’d know that Thermage FLX actually results in a brighter, more refreshed look.
In an interview with Cosmo, Dr. Belo herself said that “[the treatment] brings your face back…five to 10 years, depending on the quality of your skin.” To put it simply, you’ll look just like yourself—only younger.
4. The procedure can be done on any body part.
Apart from reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the eyes, forehead, and cheeks, Thermage FLX can also be used to tighten other areas of the face and body. For Sue Ramirez, for example, it helped sculpt her facial contours and narrow her jawline. (BTW, it can also tighten jiggly bellies and thighs!)
5. The results get better in time.
While the effects are instant, they are also long lasting. Post-treatment, your skin resupplies itself with fresh collagen within the next three months. In fact, Anne herself tried Thermage FLX earlier this year and still looks just as radiant—even after she and her husband Erwan Heussaff announced her pregnancy.
This is also why this treatment is perfect if you’re an OFW or balikbayan—you can swing by any Belo branch and get it done before you’re off to your next trip!
