Skin Tightening

How does skin tightening work?

Skin tightening with the TempSure® Envi uses noninvasive radiofrequency (RF) technology to improve the tone and appearance of your skin, revealing a more radiant complexion. The FDA-approved RF treatment works by slowly heating your skin — without needles, surgery, or downtime. 

TempSure's gentle heat ignites a natural rejuvenation response in your skin, without harming surrounding tissues. Your skin cells begin to produce new collagen fibers, a crucial building block of youthful skin. 

TempSure® Vitalia can also enhance your intimate well-being by tightening loose vaginal tissues to improve circulation. It works by delivering precise heating for small, hard to reach areas.

Am I a candidate for skin tightening? 

Because skin tightening is effective on a range of skin tones, the therapy is right for most patients. If you're curious about skin tightening, scheduling a consultation with the team at Family Healthcare of Atlanta PC is the best way to see whether you're an appropriate candidate and get your questions answered.

What areas does skin tightening address?

Skin tightening with TempSure works on most areas of your face where wrinkles develop. Treatments help to minimize and tighten:

  • Smile lines
  • Fine facial lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines

 

Skin tightening also is an effective option to correct lax skin in your vaginal area that sometimes occurs after childbearing or with age.

How long does skin tightening take?

Treatments are brief, generally lasting only 45-60 minutes for TempSure Envi treatments and less than 30 minutes for Tempsure Vitalia treatments, making it ideal to squeeze in at lunchtime. 

Skin tightening requires no downtime. Once your session is complete, you can get back to the office or return to your daily activities.

Does skin tightening hurt?

Skin tightening isn't painful. Instead, you'll notice your skin growing progressively warmer. It may feel like a hot stone massage.

The warmth hovers around 100°F, which is the perfect temperature to trigger the growth of collagen fibers. Nearly all patients describe their skin-tightening sessions as painless. 

What should I expect after skin tightening?

You may notice your face appears slightly red after skin tightening, but any redness usually disappears quickly. 

After treatment, people may tell you your skin is glowing. You may notice your complexion feels tighter almost immediately after your session. You can expect your newly rejuvenated skin to fully form around a month after skin tightening. 

Family Healthcare of Atlanta PC generally recommends maintaining your tighter complexion by scheduling regular maintenance treatments.
