Skin Tightening Q & A

What causes loose facial skin?

As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, you lose some of the underlying fat cells that kept your face plump and firm, and your skin naturally loses elasticity. All these things combined can lead to sagging jowls and drooping eyelids.

Living in a sunny climate doesn’t help either. When you’re outside, you expose your delicate skin to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Over the course of your lifetime, UV rays break down collagen, contributing to loose skin.

And if you lose weight, you might notice more prevalent sagging jowls or bags under your eyes that you didn’t see before. If your skin was stretched before you lost weight, it doesn’t bounce back as quickly since you also lose elasticity with age. You might be left with a slimmer profile, but looser skin.

How do you tighten loose skin?

There are a few ways to tighten loose skin, but not all of them are desirable because they come with risks, needles, and downtime. Face-lift surgery and other invasive treatments can be effective skin-tightening treatments, but they’re risky and they often come with long recovery periods.

Collagen-boosting supplements or topical creams can also help tighten your loose facial skin, but the results are often rather subtle and take a long time before you notice a difference. Laser skin rejuvenation treatments can help, but the high temperature of the laser can damage delicate skin tissue.

The TempSure Envi skin-tightening system takes a different approach to loose skin. It uses controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy that heats skin tissue only to its optimal temperature. As a result, it’s highly effective at tightening your skin without the high risks of damaging the tissue.

What does a TempSure Envi skin-tightening treatment feel like?

TempSure Envi skin-tightening treatments were designed with your comfort in mind. As Dr. Poulos gently moves the handpiece over your skin, you feel a warming sensation, much like a hot stone massage. It’s not painful, and the majority of men and women describe the treatment as a comfortable experience.

Results are immediate, too, as you leave your appointment with noticeably tighter, glowing skin. In the weeks that follow your TempSure Envi treatments, you continue to see an improvement in sagging skin. That’s because the RF energy stimulates your body to produce new collagen, which makes your skin tighter and more elastic, much like it was when you were younger.
