Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Collagen is a protein that gives your skin structure. As you age, your skin produces less collagen, making it thinner and less elastic. It’s this change that often leads to the development of wrinkles.

Older skin is less able to protect itself, and lines and wrinkles begin forming. Skin tightening is a cosmetic procedure that works by rebuilding lost structure and tightening the surface of your skin to minimize the look of wrinkles.

The team at Genesis Functional Medicine tackles lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging with TempSure™ Envi, a radiofrequency treatment to tighten skin without the need for invasive cosmetic surgery. 

How does TempSure Envi work?

TempSure Envi is a radiofrequency laser treatment to smooth wrinkles and tighten skin. Safe for all skin types, it’s a powerful and customizable cosmetic procedure that can deliver more youthful-looking skin.

TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency technology to heat the tissue below the surface of your skin gently. The heat stimulates your skin to generate new collagen, which gives skin structure and volume.

The system is equipped with state-of-the-art temperature sensors and timers, reliably and evenly treating skin for consistent results every time. The team at Genesis Functional Medicine can choose from among five handpieces to deliver personalized, effective treatment.

The new collagen fibers that skin tightening treatment helps generate are dense and tight. Results are often immediate with TempSure Envi, and collagen rebuilding continues even after treatment.

What can I expect during skin tightening treatment?

Skin tightening with TempSure Envi is completely customizable. When you begin treatment, the team develops a plan that may include a series of sessions. 

Since skin tightening works by increasing collagen production in your skin, regular sessions help combat your body’s natural loss of collagen to keep skin looking younger. 

You can expect to feel a gentle warming sensation in the treatment area during the procedure, and most patients say their experience is pain-free. Most procedures take 30-60 minutes, depending on your treatment plan.

With skin tightening at Genesis Functional Medicine, there’s no downtime. While you may experience some redness shortly after treatment, this subsides soon after. Treatment is safe for all levels of sun exposure and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately. 

Nonsurgical skin tightening gives you the ability to fight those frustrating lines and wrinkles without invasive procedures. To learn if skin tightening could be right for you, make an appointment online or by phone today.
