It’s a safe bet nobody really likes to see wrinkles when they look in the mirror. But unfortunately, as we get older, wrinkles start to become unavoidable. And that leaves a lot of us looking for ways to smooth out those creases and folds so our skin looks younger and firmer instead of older and worn out. For a long time, the only way to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles was to have a surgical facelift. While a facelift can smooth wrinkles and lines, there are a lot of downsides to the procedure, including all the risks that go along with surgery, like bleeding, infection, and scars, as well as unpredictable results.
Fortunately, today there are a lot more options for reducing or eliminating facial wrinkles and lines, options that don’t rely on surgery. At Serenity MedSpa, Dr. Gertzman offers one of the most popular noninvasive options — TempSure® EnviTM — to help her patients smooth out facial wrinkles and gently lift and rejuvenate skin for a more youthful, more energized appearance.
How TempSure Envi works
TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to smooth out lines and wrinkles while also promoting the production of natural collagen fibers. Collagen plays an important role in skin health. Fibers join together to form strong networks that help support our skin so it “bounces back” when touched and feels firm and resilient. When we’re young, our skin produces lots of collagen, which is a big reason why youthful skin looks and feels firmer and fuller. But as we get older, collagen production declines, which leaves our skin more prone to wrinkling and sagging.
The TempSure Envi system uses a special handheld applicator and patented delivery system to administer RF energy into skin’s middle and deeper layers where collagen is produced. As the energy painlessly penetrates your skin, it targets those deeper layers, triggering natural healing responses that stimulate your skin to ramp up its production of collagen. At the same time, the gentle RF heat helps “shrink” skin tissue to help it look firmer right after your treatment. TempSure’s RF delivery system allows it to deliver a higher level of RF energy compared to other systems for deeper and more consistent penetration and better results.
What to expect during your TempSure Envi treatment
Most facial treatments take between a half hour and 45 minutes. During your treatment, the TempSure applicator is gently passed over your skin, emitting RF energy in controlled intervals to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while also promoting collagen development below the skin’s surface. Even though Envi uses a higher level of RF energy compared to other RF systems, the patented delivery system will keep your skin temperature comfortable throughout the treatment, thanks to a special temperature sensor that provides continual feedback and temperature adjustments. Most patients report mild to moderate warmth during treatment.
Once your treatment is complete, you can expect your skin to look pinkish as a result of the heat energy, but that effect will soon fade. There’s no downtime, so you can get back to your regular routine right away. TempSure Envi can be performed on any skin type and at any time of the year. Although you may see some improvement right after your treatment, the final results will take a few weeks to become visible once your skin’s collagen production ramps up and begins naturally firming your skin and filling in lines. Depending on the results you’re looking for, you might decide to schedule a series of sessions to maximize the effects of your treatment.
And there’s another benefit to TempSure Envi: Not only can the system be used to treat lax, saggy skin on the face and neck areas, but it can also be used to firm up skin in other areas too, like your belly and thighs, firming your skin and reducing the dimpled appearance of stubborn, unsightly cellulite.
