As you get older, your body doesn’t produce as much collagen or elastin, two of the skin fibers that help your skin look plump and tight. At Desert Ophthalmology in Palm Desert and Palm Springs, California, Dr. Wallace Goldban and Elizabeth Aguilar, offer innovative skin tightening treatments using the revolutionary TempSure™ Envi radiofrequency system from Cynosure®. If you want to improve the appearance of your skin and look younger, call or make an appointment online today.
TempSure Envi is an FDA-cleared skin tightening system that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production in your skin. The treatments revitalize the appearance of your skin, reducing the appearance of:
By stimulating collagen production, TempSure Envi also plumps your skin from within to reduce the appearance of loose or sagging skin on your cheeks or chin.
A TempSure Envi skin tightening treatment takes approximately 20 minutes. During your session, you wear protective goggles while Dr. Goldban or Elizabeth Aguilar directs the radiofrequency energy into your skin. The heat causes micro-injuries in your skin that trigger your body’s regenerative and healing response, flooding your skin with blood, oxygen, and nutrients to build new cells.
TempSure Envi is different from other skin tightening systems in that it’s calibrated to avoid nerve stimulation, which means higher temperatures are applied without damaging your skin or causing pain. In fact, TempSure Envi treatments aren’t painful, but you might notice a warming sensation.
While you may see results after just one treatment, many patients need up to four treatments for optimal results. Also, while your new collagen production is permanent, TempSure doesn’t stop the aging process, so you may want a touch-up appointment every 6-12 months.
TempSure Envi skin tightening treatments are suitable for every skin color and texture. You should be in good overall health and want to restore your skin’s youthful appearance.
It’s a great first step into cosmetic treatments if you want to look younger but don’t want — or need — an invasive treatment like face-lift surgery.
You won’t need to take any time away from your regular daily responsibilities after a TempSure Envi skin tightening treatment, although you should avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after your appointment.
As always, you should take care to protect your skin from the sun. Not only are the UV rays in sunlight responsible for much of the skin damage that causes signs of aging, but the treatment makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight. You should always make sure to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen.
