Skin Tightening Q & A

How does skin tightening work?

Collagen and elastin are the critical ingredients to the firm skin you remember from your younger years. TempSure Envi stimulates the production of these natural proteins within your skin, using an innovative radiofrequency tool. Dr. Speck Hopkins calibrates the instrument, so it can target the cells in the deepest layers of your skin, without damaging the surface layers.

The gentle radiofrequency heat also boosts circulation to your skin, promoting cellular health, resulting in an improved complexion and visibly reduced skin sag.

What conditions can be treated with TempSure Envi?

TempSure Envi can dramatically improve the appearance of the following conditions:

  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Spider veins
  • Millia (small white bumps on the skin’s surface)

Dr. Speck Hopkins uses TempSure Envi to treat the forehead, eyebrow and eye area, cheeks, jowls, chin, and neck.

How many skin tightening treatments will I need?

Your skin will look and feel tighter after the first treatment. For most people, four treatments spaced two to four weeks apart are needed for optimal results.

Will my results be permanent?

The collagen and elastin that are triggered by TempSure Envi will permanently remain in your skin. Because you will continue to age, Dr. Speck Hopkins recommends a touch-up treatment every six months.

Does skin tightening hurt?

Skin tightening with TempSure Envi takes less than 20 minutes, and treatments aren’t painful, so you won’t need anesthesia. However, if you’re worried about pain or generally anxious, Dr. Speck Hopkins can offer you Nitronex™, an analgesic made up of nitrous oxide and oxygen.

During your procedure, you’ll probably feel some warmth and pressure as Dr. Speck Hopkins moves the TempSure Envi tool over your skin. Most patients don’t feel any discomfort during a skin tightening session, and some find the treatments to be relaxing.

Is there any downtime with TempSure Envi?

TempSure Envi is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure that is safe, effective, and requires no downtime, so you can return to normal activities right after your session. It isn’t unusual to have some mild irritation or redness in the treated area, but this typically goes away within one day.

Skin tightening with TempSure Envi is a terrific way to achieve healthier looking skin and youthful firmness. To learn more, call Lena Speck Hopkins, MD, today, or schedule a consultation online.
