Who qualifies for TempSure?
Skin tightening surgery or "lift" procedures, like facelifts, remains the best way to minimize sagging, loose skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening may help if you do not want to undergo cosmetic surgery and can be performed on most areas of the body. The best patients for this treatment:
- Are in good general health
- Are at or near a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium skin looseness on the body
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face or body
- Want to boost the health and appearance of their skin
We also want our patients to have a realistic expectation as to what this technology can do. If your skin is too loose, then Dr. Ishaaya may have to recommend a different treatment. Also, your skin will continue to age. Repeat sessions will be necessary to touch-up your skin in the future.
Our Tempsure technique
Our TempSure nonsurgical skin tightening sessions take place in one of our private treatment rooms. We estimate that your session could last 30 – 60 minutes, depending on how big your treatment area is and how many areas you want to be treated. We will make sure your skin is clean before passing the TempSure device over your skin. The TempSure will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective session. The radiofrequency energy will prompt your body’s natural healing response. This is how the treatment stimulates elastin and collagen production, which firms and tightens the skin. Once the treatment is over, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your regular activities.
After Your Session
Rebuilding collagen and elastin is a slow process. Rest assured, you should see results of the treatment about 4 – 6 weeks after your TempSure session. The good news is that your results should be long-lasting as it is rebuilding collagen. You may need multiple treatments to achieve the most ideal outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Ishaaya can help you create your custom plan for treatment to meet your needs and goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical skin tightening cost?
Based on the size and amount of areas being treated, your cost for a TempSure treatment will vary. Before your treatment, we will customize a treatment plan based on your goals, then estimate costs. We will also discuss payment options and where to get low-interest medical financing.
Is the nonsurgical skin tightening with TempSure painful?
Throughout your treatment, you may feel some warmth, but no major discomfort. If necessary, a numbing agent can be applied to your skin before the procedure, but this is typically not needed.
Should I get nonsurgical or surgical skin tightening?
At your initial consultation, we will ask you to talk about your goals. What you want, as well as an examination of your skin to evaluate laxity, will help us decide whether you are a good candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening. In general, TempSure is better for patients with mildly loose skin. Large flaps of loose skin will be better served by surgical excision.
