Fight Back against Photoaging with Innovative Radiofrequency Therapy

Though time gets most of the blame, 90% of the visible changes to your skin trace back to cumulative sun exposure. This is photoaging rather than chronological aging, and it’s largely due to the ultraviolet (UV) components of sunlight, though visible and infrared rays play a small role.

Even more surprising may be the fact that radio waves can help you reduce the appearance of the effects of photoaging. Wandisan-Rosete Medical Group offers TempSure® Envi, a monopolar radiofrequency skin treatment that delivers deep skin revitalization in a simple office procedure with no downtime. As TempSure specialists, our aesthetics team can help you banish the unwanted effects of the sun.

How photoaging starts

Your skin has three layers. The epidermis, the top layer, is the surface you present to the world. The bottom layer, called the subcutis, is your skin’s fat layer. Between those is the critical support layer, the dermis. It’s here that UV light does the most damage.

Collagen and elastin are two of the important support tissues that give your skin a youthful appearance. At some point during your 20s, the amount of collagen in your skin starts to decline. That’s the portion that’s lost to natural aging.

When you’re exposed to UV components of sunlight or artificial light like that found in tanning salons, it starts a damage-and-control cycle. The dermis produces pigment to protect you against further damage, what you’d call a suntan. At the same time, longer UV rays damage the structure of dermis components, and these start to grow back abnormally. Wrinkles, dry skin, and pigment clumps called age or sun spots result.

Collagen induction and TempSure

TempSure Envi starts a healing cycle that’s much like the one the sun causes, but without the mutating effects of UV light. Using radiofrequency energy, TempSure penetrates your epidermis and warms collagen tissue, triggering a natural replacement process called collagen induction. Your body produces new tissue while earmarking older, sun-affected tissue for disposal through the lymphatic and circulatory systems.

The result is refreshed skin with better volume and moisture properties than before treatment. Your epidermis once again finds support from the middle layer, filling in fine lines and wrinkles, while pigment clumps formed in older tissue fade as new collagen forms.

There are other aesthetic procedures that can start collagen induction and ease the symptoms of photoaging, processes like aggressive dermabrasions or chemical peels. However, these damage your outer skin too. While that means you have a fresh epidermis, you could have days or weeks of downtime as your skin heals.

TempSure Envi is a true lunchtime facial. You can have a 20-minute treatment and then return to your normal day. There’s no fuss, no pain, and no side effects.
