Forget the Facelift: Tighten Loose Skin with Surgery-Free TempSure Envi

If you want to recapture that more youthful face of years gone by, forget the facelift and explore how new technologies are r

Aging can be cruel, especially when it comes to the skin on your highly visible face. Time, exposure, and a loss of resources all conspire to turn your once-youthful skin into a surface that’s increasingly riddled with fine lines and wrinkles. Not to mention the fact that your skin succumbs to gravity with each passing year, leaving it sagging and hollowed.

At Wandisan and Rosete Medical Group, our team of experienced medical providers wants you to look and feel great — inside and out. To that end, we offer a number of aesthetic services that tighten skin, reduce fat, and help you achieve an appearance that’s more in line with your youthful and vibrant spirit.

Here’s a look at how, with our advanced Tempsure Envi® technology, we can tighten loose skin without resorting to invasive surgeries like a facelift. 

The skin you’re in

Your skin is your largest organ, covering an average of 22 square feet, and its primary role is to shield you from the harm that lurks out in the world — from the sun’s ultraviolet rays to infection-causing bacteria. And it takes a beating in this role, especially the skin that covers your highly exposed face.

As years of exposure lead to photoaging with the breakdown of the connective fibers in your skin, your skin loses its elasticity and tone. On top of the exposure to the sun, which we get plenty of here in California, each year your body produces less collagen, which is the protein that supplies much of your skin’s structural support.

All too soon, the fine lines and wrinkles that used to only be evident when you moved your face, begin to take up permanent residence. And your skin also slowly shifts downward, creating a more jowly look that’s best suited for elder statesmen.

Giving your skin a noninvasive lift

Traditionally, the best way to tackle lax skin was through a facelift. While effective, this procedure is invasive and comes with ample downtime and a certain amount of risk. Thanks to better technology that harnesses energy in such a way that we can treat sensitive skin, we’re able to lift your skin with nary a knife in sight. 

This cutting-edge technology, called TempSure Envi, relies on radiofrequency energy to provide a wake-up call in your skin for regeneration and rejuvenation. 

How TempSure Envi works

The TempSure Envi system delivers monopolar radiofrequency energy into your skin that heats the tissue below (dermis) without harming the outer layer, or epidermis. As your dermis absorbs the energy, it converts it into heat, and this heat provides the aforementioned wake-up call. More specifically, when your dermis registers the thermal heat, it elicits a mild healing response, which typically comes in the form of renewed collagen production.

Immediately after your TempSure Envi treatment, which only takes about 45 minutes, your skin may appear and feel tighter. But the real work begins below the surface as your body releases fibroblasts that encourage collagen synthesis. As this new collagen is produced, you benefit from renewed structural support that lifts your skin, reducing the fine lines and wrinkles in your face. 

The TempSure timeline

Depending upon the extent of your lax skin, you may need a series of TempSure Envi treatments, which we space apart by several weeks to allow time for your body to respond. As we mentioned, you may experience a tightening immediately after each treatment, but the real results settle into place about six weeks after your final TempSure session with us.

And these results are yours to maintain with daily skin care and protection from the sun. When your skin begins to feel the effects of time and gravity again, and it will, you simply return for a follow-up TempSure treatment.
