FDA clears Thermage FLX System
The US Food and Drug Administration granted 510(k) clearance to Solta Medical’s Thermage FLX System in early October. The next generation Thermage technology features a new optimized energy delivery algorithm, which automatically measures and precisely tunes the amount of energy delivered to the patient and treatment area, the company says. The system also has a new vibrating hand-piece to help enhance patient comfort, and a new, larger treatment tip that reduces treatment time by 25%. Radiofrequency technology uniformly and gently heats deep collagen-rich layers of the skin to tighten existing collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen, the company says.
