TempSure Skin Tightening for the Face and Neck
Non-surgical Skin Tightening and Wrinkle Reduction with Radiofrequency energy:
The TempSure™ RF (TS) is the latest system cleared by the FDA for treatment of mild to moderate facial and neck wrinkles on all skin types. Studies indicate over 85% of patients still have observable results six months after a series of 5 monthly non-ablative treatments. Our experience is that over 95% of treated patients can see a difference. However, individuals respond differently, and exact results cannot be guaranteed. TS smoothens fine wrinkles, improves skin laxity and results in a firmer skin texture. TS causes an immediate contraction of existing collagen fibers that continues, over the next 3 days. Over the next month, the treated area is stimulated to produce your natural collagen, furthering the long term and additive benefits over time.
How comfortable it feels:
Most patients state that “…it feels good, like a warm stone massage.” During the procedure there may be moments of intense warmth, but not pain. TempSure is so safe that eye cover is not needed. Patients may return to work immediately, or apply makeup with no downtime.
All jewelry, watches, makeup, lotions, and eyeliner should be removed from the treatment area before treatment. Broken or infected skin will not be treated and no anesthetic is needed. Patients should be well hydrated starting 3 days before any treatment and continue throughout. If you have a history of herpes breakouts, taking an antiviral for 3 days may reduce this risk of an outbreak. Beard stubble should be removed. Wait 2 weeks, if you just had Botox or filler injected. Before a treatment, avoid chemicals like Retin-A, Isotretinoin, Glycolic or Salicylic acid which cause redness and inflammation.
You may feel some skin tightness after treatment. Diligent protection from sun exposure and application of sunscreen for a week after treatment is advised. Continue to stay hydrated and drink at least 6 cups of water daily. There is no downtime; patients are to continue their usual skin care regiment or can apply makeup immediately. TS is performed as a series of 3 to 5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are everyone to 6 months on an individual basis.
What to expect:
Over 90% of our patients are able to see a visible difference even after the first treatment. We emphasize that a series of treatments are needed for a sustained endpoint. Most patients have 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart and then continue maintenance treatments for everyone to 6 months. The collagen benefits are cumulative and continue for years after therapy. Genetics and starting point laxity will affect results and sustainability. The longevity of all skin treatments is improved with maintaining good skin care and avoiding photo-aging. The TS procedure is very safe for all skin types and is ideal for patient’s wanting gradual improvement without downtime, pain or high risk of side effects. TS addresses issues of texture and laxity. Skin tone irregularities are addressed by skin rejuvenation. Patient’s who desire dramatic changes in lax skin will be referred to a plastic surgeon.
