Reap the Benefits of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Sagging, lax skin is one of the first signs of facial aging, and unfortunately, it’s also what makes our lines and wrinkles appear more visible. When skin starts to sag and drift downward, it deepens wrinkles, especially around the mouth, nose and chin, and it’s also a major cause of ugly jowls and the aptly named “turkey neck.”

Not too long ago, the only way to battle loose, sagging facial skin was with a surgical face-lift, designed to reposition your skin and “snip away” excess skin so your face would appear tighter, more toned and more youthful. While a face-lift can certainly be an effective solution for sagging facial and neck skin, it’s still surgery — and that means it comes with a lot of risks and side effects, including pain, a prolonged recovery time and relatively unpredictable results. Plus, when you have a surgical face-lift, you’ve also got the risks that go along with having general anesthesia. And that doesn’t begin to take into account the high cost of face-lift surgery.

At Cleveland Family Health, we want all our patients to feel great about the way they look, especially as they get older and those signs of aging start to take their toll. Our team offers state-of-the-art TempSure Envi® laser skin tightening treatments designed to tighten and firm loose, sagging skin without surgery, without prolonged downtime, and at a much lower cost than surgery.

How TempSure Envi® works

To understand how TempSure Envi® works to tighten and firm loose, sagging skin, you first have to understand what causes your skin to sag in the first place. Certainly, sun exposure, chronic stress and even your genes can all play a role (along with good, old gravity). But one of the biggest causes of sagging skin as we get older is a decline in the production of collagen and elastin, two fibers that play a major role in keeping your skin firm and resilient.

When we’re young, our bodies produce plenty of collagen and elastin. These fibers bind together to form a strong and supportive network for your skin, keeping your skin looking and feeling firm while also preventing sagging. When we age, our bodies produce less of both of these fibers. Without that supportive network, our skin tends to sag and lose its natural firmness, resulting in wrinkles, skin laxity, jowls and other signs of aging.

TempSure Envi® uses laser energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production deep inside your skin. While the gentle heat causes some immediate “shrinkage” in your skin, you’ll notice the full benefits of your treatment after several weeks, once your body’s production of these fibers has kicked in. Regular touch-up treatments with TempSure Envi® can help you enjoy those results indefinitely.

The procedure and the results: What to expect

TempSure Envi® is safe and comfortable, and most treatments take about a half hour or less. During your treatment, you’ll recline and relax while the TempSure applicator is passed over your skin. You’ll feel the warming energy as it penetrates your skin, but built-in cooling features will keep the surface of your skin comfortable while the laser heat penetrates to the deeper layers where collagen and elastin are formed. Once your treatment is complete, you’ll be able to resume your regular routines right away without any downtime.

After your treatment, you’ll probably have some redness in the treatment area, similar to what you’d expect with a mild sunburn. It’ll be important to protect the treatment area from sun exposure during the early stages of recovery. To prolong your results, you should use sunscreen regularly, eat a healthy diet and drink lots of water.

Turn back the hands of time with laser skin tightening

TempSure Envi® is safe enough for all skin types and tones, and it’s popular with both women and men. If you’d like to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin without surgery, TempSure Envi® could be just what you’re looking for.
