There’s no doubt a surgical facelift can tighten sagging skin and take years off your face. But if you want to avoid scalpels and extended downtime, our team of physicians at Beth and Howard Braver, MD, can help you achieve remarkable results with nonsurgical skin tightening.
Keep reading to learn how TempSure® Envi™ treatments use radiofrequency energy to tighten your skin and take years off your face — no scalpel required.
What is nonsurgical skin tightening?
Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments improve your skin by stimulating key proteins, like collagen and elastin. When these proteins regenerate and create firmer, stronger bands, your skin lifts and tightens without surgery.
At Beth and Howard Braver, MD, we’ve selected FDA-approved TempSure Envi from CynoSure®, industry leaders in aesthetic treatments. TempSure Envi uses noninvasive, pain-free radiofrequency energy to lift and tighten your skin in about an hour.
How does TempSure Envi tighten saggy skin?
Radiofrequency energy gently heats your skin, stimulating your body’s natural production of the skin proteins collagen and elastin. These proteins play a key role in the health and appearance of your skin.
Collagen is a tough protein. Individual cells join to create long, sturdy bands and fibers. Elastin, a stretchy protein, helps your skin stay elastic so it bounces back when you make facial expressions and movements.
As you age, your body naturally makes less of both proteins. This causes visible skin changes, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dry and/or crepey skin
- Sharper-looking, more prominent bones
- Sagging, droopy skin
The heat that TempSure Envi produces penetrates below the surface of your skin to the middle layers where collagen and elastin are produced. This triggers a boost in production, and the new protein bands that result are stronger and denser, resulting in skin that’s firmer and tighter.
Since TempSure Envi is safe for all skin types and doesn’t increase sun sensitivity, you can start treatments during any season. You might notice a flushed, slightly pink appearance after your session, but this resolves quickly, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
What can I expect with TempSure Envi treatments?
We love using TempSure Envi for our patients because treatments are comfortable and the results are stunning. You may feel a gentle warming sensation, similar to a hot stone massage.
You leave your session with noticeably radiant, glowing skin. In the days and weeks that follow, the appearance of your skin continues to improve as your body produces more collagen and elastin.
Maximum results take about 4-6 weeks to appear, and for optimal results, we recommend scheduling a series of treatments. Since collagen and elastin operate using the domino effect (the more you have, the more you produce), the results of your treatments are cumulative.
What if I want to tighten skin in places other than my face?
If you have other places with saggy skin, we may recommend TempSure FirmTM. This treatment uses the same noninvasive radiofrequency energy and can tighten skin on most areas of your body, including your:
