Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Dr. Chappell uses TempSure Envi for skin tightening. This painless and noninvasive treatment is designed to improve your skin’s tightness by boosting the production of collagen, which helps enhance the look of your skin. It’s known as the nonsurgical face-lift.

Dr. Chappell offers this exclusive treatment to improve the following cosmetic issues:

  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s-feet
  • Wrinkles
  • Cellulite

Because the TempSure Envi procedure stimulates collagen growth, this powerful treatment gives you fuller, softer, and more luminous skin with just a single treatment. Another benefit is the hydration and antioxidant properties that help you achieve a youthful, radiant glow.

How does TempSure Envi work?

Dr. Chappell applies a gel to your face which helps protect it from the laser. The TempSure Envi treatment generates heat at controlled and targeted temperatures, emitting radiofrequency waves into your skin at the desired location.

These radiofrequency waves produce low energy which penetrates your skin to target the dermis. TempSure Envi contains Therapeutic Logic Control to ensure the temperature is controlled throughout the treatment to avoid discomfort.

A natural reaction to the treatment is your body’s release of growth factor proteins to promote healing and tissue regeneration in your face through the stimulation of collagen production. Even better is that the heat of the TempSure Envi treatment causes the collagen already on your skin to contract, making your skin tighter.

What can I expect after my skin tightening procedure?

The treatment is relatively fast, lasting around 30-60 minutes. After the first treatment, you can expect a healthy glow in addition to feeling tighter skin. You can expect some skin redness for 12-24 hours immediately following the treatment, but this should subside naturally as your skin heals.

Generally, most people see full results at around four to six weeks following treatment as collagen continues to rebuild and tighten your face over time. It’s important to be cautious with the treated area by covering your skin and wearing sunblock.

To maintain your results, Dr. Chappell recommends touch-up sessions once or twice a year.
