Staying loose is great if you’re in a high-pressure situation. Loose is not so thrilling when you’re talking about your skin and getting older. Yet, it’s inevitable. At some point in your 20s, collagen production declines. Your skin can’t hold the same levels of moisture that it once did, and it loses a degree of elasticity. These changes, which continue for the rest of your life, start to become visible.
Two of the most feared results of older skin are wrinkles and cellulite, both of which trace back to reduced collagen production. You know that your body retains the ability to make collagen. If you have a raised white scar after a cut heals, you’re looking at clumps of collagen made by your body to fix the cut.
The TempSure™ Envi monopolar radiofrequency system is here to help you take charge over increasing skin laxity.
Stimulating new collagen growth
It’s known through the healing of cuts that your body can produce new collagen tissue when necessary. In fact, many facial treatments create controlled damage to achieve just that, skin renewal through collagen response. The problem with many of these treatments is that both outer and middle layers of skin must be damaged.
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are two types of treatment that use this approach. The best results come from the most aggressive treatments, but you may need days or even weeks of recovery before you can once again put your best face forward. TempSure Envi skips your outer skin layer and works directly on the collagen.
Cellulite and collagen
There are those who don’t realize that cellulite isn’t a condition, it’s an appearance. Connective tissue holds your skin to tissue below subdermal fat. Young and resilient skin keeps areas that are typically affected by cellulite smooth and even.
It’s when skin laxity begins that the dimpled appearance of cellulite appears. Connective tissue still holds your skin, but between these spots, fat can pillow. Restoring the collagen layer recoups elasticity, and the appearance of cellulite diminishes.
The TempSure Envi difference
TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency energy to project heat below your surface skin into the collagen layer. Collagen is more sensitive to temperature than your outer skin, and with a relatively small increase, your body responds to this collagen “damage.”
The orders go out to remove the heated collagen and replace it with new tissue, all while leaving surface skin unaffected. TempSure Envi treatments are completely noninvasive.
It takes an hour or less for a TempSure Envi treatment, depending on the areas you wish to improve. Best of all, there’s no downtime, so you can continue with your day immediately after your treatment. Because TempSure Envi triggers a natural response, results appear later, with optimal results weeks down the road.
As with most medical and cosmetic procedures, individual results vary, so consulting with the professionals at the Institute for Health Management Aesthetics is the best way to learn more about TempSure Envi.
