TempSure Q & A

What is TempSure Envi?

TempSure Envi is a skin-tightening laser treatment that improves skin tone and minimizes wrinkles. The TempSure Envi system offers a safe and effective alternative to surgery since the procedure is entirely noninvasive and you don’t need to take time off to recover after treatment.

TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency technology to heat the skin and its layers of tissue. Heating the skin makes it contract, tightening the outer layer and providing immediate improvements in skin tone. TempSure Envi’s main benefit is that it stimulates your body to regenerate collagen. Collagen fibers act as the support structure for your skin, and as they regrow, your skin becomes firmer and smoother in the weeks following treatment.

Are there side effects of TempSure Envi treatment?

TempSure Envi is one of the safest cosmetic procedures for tightening skin. Since there is no wound care or bleeding to deal with, the chance of infection or complications is greatly reduced. TempSure Envi is a non-ablative form of treatment, meaning there’s no painful removal of skin cells and minimal discomfort.

You won’t need to be sedated or anesthetized for your treatment. Dr. Patel simply applies a topical anesthetic cream to the area to cool the heat sensation produced by the laser.

After a treatment session, you may notice some sensitivity, redness, and mild swelling, but these effects normally disappear within the first few days.

Please be advised, there are a couple of underlying health issues that could complicate laser skin tightening:

  • Frequent herpes breakouts
  • Use of acne medication
  • The presence of keloids (raised scars)

Before your treatment, Dr. Patel conducts a thorough examination of your medical history and current state of health to ensure that laser skin tightening is a safe option for you.

How many TempSure sessions will I need?

The number of sessions each patient requires depends on the area being treated, and how quickly you see improvements in your skin. You should notice an instant improvement in skin tone and firmness after your first session, and your skin will look better and better over the next few months as collagen production increases.

Regular treatments ensure the continuing stimulation of new collagen growth, helping you maintain your new skin tone, and Dr. Patel will advise you on how frequently you should come in for more treatments if needed.
