Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening treatments encourage collagen remodeling within your skin to reduce lines and wrinkles on your face or tighten a body area. At Meridian Primary Care, the team uses TempSure Envi for gentle noninvasive skin tightening. The device delivers radiofrequency waves deep into your tissues to stimulate new collagen growth and a tightening effect. 

Using the TempSure Envi device ensures that your skin gets an even amount of heat across your specified treatment area. Since your own collagen and elastin fibers are responsible for the results, they’re long-lasting and completely natural-looking.  

What areas can I target with skin tightening treatments?

Radiofrequency skin tightening with TempSure Envi is effective for any skin type. You can target one or several areas on your face and body with the treatments, including:

  • Eye bags
  • Eyelids
  • Eyebrows
  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Knees
  • Arms 
  • Abdomen

Skin tightening treatments with TempSure Envi can also reduce some of the cellulite on larger areas like your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. 

How long does a skin tightening procedure take?

Each skin tightening procedure with TempSure Envi takes between 30 minutes and an hour. Since you don’t need to book downtime after your procedure for recovery, you can go straight back to work or running errands when you leave Meridian Primary Care. 

What does a skin tightening procedure feel like?

TempSure Envi treatments feel comparable to a hot stone massage. They’re relaxing and therapeutic with no discomfort. In fact, 99% of patients feel that the treatments are comfortable. Your skin feels tighter right away because of the collagen and elastin fibers contract with the heat. Then, the results keep getting better with time as new fibers grow. 

How many skin tightening treatments will I need?

Your provider at Meridian Primary Care evaluates your skin during an initial consultation. They ask about your wrinkles and skin laxity concerns to develop your treatment plan accordingly. 

In most cases, they recommend several initial treatments. Your provider tells you how many treatments you need to kickstart your skin’s collagen growth and target all of your undesired wrinkles or cellulite. Once your results start to diminish, you can ask about getting maintenance treatments to keep your skin tight in the long term.
