Other than gray hair, nothing screams your age like wrinkled skin. Crow’s feet, crepey eyelids, and sagging jowls are dead giveaways that you’re middle-aged or beyond. And these telltale signs seem so unfair, especially when you still feel much younger than you look. If you wish you could tighten your skin but don’t want to resort to surgery, you’re in luck. TempSure™ Envi is a revolutionary treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to tighten and smooth skin without surgery.
Stephen Hsieh, MD, and our team of medical experts at High Rock Internal Medicine understand what you’re going through. We know that overall health is directly influenced by how good you feel, and that includes your self-perception. That’s why we offer TempSure Envi to our patients looking to reclaim their younger skin and boost their confidence and self-esteem.
Why your skin looks old
While genetics, lifestyle, and daily habits can play a role in the health of your skin, a number of things happen just because you age. Here are a few of them:
Less collagen and elastin
As time goes by, your body produces less of the proteins collagen and elastin, which are responsible for keeping your skin plump and pliable.
Your epidermis, the outer layer of your skin, thins over time and becomes more transparent and fragile.
The force of gravity never stops pulling down on your skin, and with age, your delicate skin may no longer resist the effects.
Damage from the sun, called photoaging, dries out your skin, breaks down elastin fibers, and causes spots and discoloration.
Elderly people tend to lose subcutaneous fat, the layer of fat just under the surface of the skin. This can give a sunken, skeletal look to your face and hands.
You can reverse the damage with TempSure Envi
While there is some damage that can’t be undone completely — such as extreme photoaging — many of your lines and wrinkles can be banished. For many years, a surgical facelift was your only option, but now there’s TempSure Envi.
It uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat up the deepest layers of your skin to rejuvenate your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin.
While radiofrequency technology has been around for decades, it was not precise enough to treat your skin safely. TempSure Envi allows us to monitor the exact temperature and the amount of time we apply the heat so that we can produce accurate, effective, and safe results every time.
TempSure Envi vs. surgery
Plastic surgery was the gold standard for facelifts for many years, but it comes at a high cost. Here are some of the possible risks you face with a surgical facelift.
- Excessive bleeding
- Anesthesia reactions
- Nerve damage
- Pigmentation changes
- Asymmetrical results
On the other hand, TempSure Envi offers all of the benefits without the risks:
- Boosts your body’s own healing properties
- Immediate results
- Long-lasting results
- No downtime
- Treatment is fast (about 30 minutes)
Clearly, the benefits of TempSure Envi far outweigh those of a surgical facelift, especially in light of the risks involved. If you’ve been wondering how best to improve your appearance without going under the knife, we can help.
