What is FlexSure?
FlexSure is a monopolar radiofrequency treatment to permanently destroy fat in select areas. FlexSure applicators are unique in that they are thin and flexible, thereby making the treatment of curved areas of our bodies possible. Every other fat destruction technology utilizes rigid applicators, not well suited to the curved areas of our bodies.
How does FlexSure permanently destroy fat?
The applicator delivers radiofrequency heat that is temperature-monitored in real time. Unlike bipolar radiofrequency devices, the monopolar heat of Flexsure penetrates deep into the fat collection. When tissue is heated above 42 degrees the fat cells undergo apoptosis (cell death). Your circulatory system gradually clears the dead fat from the area, leaving you with a leaner profile in the area treated.
What do FlexSure treatments feel like?
The applicator feels like a warm blanket and post-treatment you will have some redness and palpable heat in the tissue area treated. The technician will adjust the heat to your tolerance level.
What areas of my body can I treat with FlexSure?
Abdomen, love handles, bra fat, arm fat, thigh fat are all great choices for FlexSure treatment. Dr. Tkatch may recommend you combine your FlexSure treatment with our other body contouring treatments like Emsculpt NEO, which not only permanently destroys fat but also builds muscle.
How many FlexSure treatments will I need?
Dr. Tkatch recommends a minimum series of five treatments, each two weeks apart. You will start to see results as early as the second treatment, but final results are visible three months after the last treatment.
What can I do to prepare for my FlexSure treatment?
Drink lots of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine on the day of your treatment. Hydrated tissue responds more easily to radiofrequency, meaning an optimal treatment for you.
