Thin Thermally Resistive Layer on top of Boundary Heat Source

I want to simulate a flat mikroheater on top of a foil that is covered by a liquid. Since the foil has a thickness of about 100µm and the liquid covering the heater has a height of 1mm, the heater's height of about 0,5µm is almost negligible. Additionally the heater is covered with a thin passivation layer with 5µm thickness.
To simulate the temperature increase of the heater I wanted to use "Boundary Heat Source" with a defined "Total boundary power". On top of it I wanted to use a "Thin thermally resistive Layer", but I did not find out how to defne two layers on top of each other.
Is there any possibility to do so?
Many thanks in advance
