Skin Tightening Q & A
What is skin tightening?
As you get older, your body produces less collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for keeping your skin firm, vibrant, and supple. Over time, less collagen and elastin means loose, sagging skin, as well as the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Skin tightening with TempSure Envi is an innovative, noninvasive aesthetic treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and rejuvenate your skin, effectively turning back the clock without invasive surgical techniques.
Who is a good candidate for skin tightening?
Dr. Farooq recommends skin tightening for any man or woman who is unhappy with the appearance of their skin due to wrinkles, cellulite, or other similar issues.
Unlike other skin-tightening treatments, TempSure Envi is safe for all complexions and skin types. It’s also safe to participate in at any time of year, so you can schedule an appointment whenever it’s most convenient.
How does skin tightening work?
TempSure Envi addresses wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, and cellulite using targeted radiofrequency energy.
During skin-tightening treatment, Dr. Farooq places an applicator on your skin that triggers a therapeutic process and the creation of new collagen. New collagen fibers are tightly woven together, which makes your skin look younger and healthier.
Is skin tightening painful?
Skin tightening with TempSure Envi is safe and generally well-tolerated. Many people compare the sensation of treatment to a relaxing hot stone massage.
Each TempSure Envi session takes between 45-60 minutes and requires no injections, incisions, or recovery period. In fact, many people visit Dr. Farooq for skin tightening on their lunch breaks.
How many skin-tightening treatments will I need?
Dr. Farooq generally recommends a series of 2-3 skin-tightening treatments, but everyone is different. Following a comprehensive physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your aesthetic goals, Dr. Farooq develops a unique plan.
How long will it take to see results from treatment?
TempSure Envi skin tightening provides instant results. In fact, many people report their skin feels “tighter” after just one session. Your friends, family members, and colleagues will also notice. The results of skin tightening are subtle and all-natural, but cause your skin to glow.
In addition, collagen production continues over time, so your results will continue to improve in the months and weeks that follow your first appointment.
Don’t let the natural aging process prevent you from living a confident, active life. To learn more about the benefits of skin tightening with TempSure Envi, call or use the online booking tool and request your free consultation today.
