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 Aesthetics and Wellness, we use TempSure Envi for gentle noninvasive skin tightening. This 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
  • Abdomen

Skin tightening treatments with TempSure Envi can also reduce the appearance of 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 after your treatment. Any redness that may occur during treatment generally resolves after 15 to 30 minutes.  Many clients choose to schedule their treatment the day of an event, as there is often an immediate glow and reduction of wrinkles the day of treatment.

What does a skin tightening procedure feel like?

TempSure Envi treatments feel comparable to a hot stone massage. They treatments are relaxing and therapeutic with minimal to no discomfort. In fact, 99% of patients feel that the treatments are comfortable. Occasionally, some clients feel “hot spots”, usually over bony areas, so your provider will be cautious over typical hot spots and also periodically ask how you are feeling. Right after your treatment, your skin will feel tighter immediately because the collagen and elastin fibers contract with the heat. Over the next month, your skin will continue to improve as new fibers grow. 

How many skin tightening treatments will I need?

We at Meridian Aesthetics and Wellness will evaluate your skin during an initial consultation. We will ask about your wrinkles and skin laxity concerns to develop your treatment plan accordingly, then advise you how many treatments you may need in order to kickstart your skin’s collagen growth and target all of your undesired wrinkles or cellulite. Typically, clients choose to undergo the treatment once a month for three months or so for maximal results.  They find the treatments a relaxing time to take a break from the stress of the day. Once they reach their ideal results, they often will undergo occasional maintenance treatments to keep their skin tight in the long term and to reverse wrinkle damage from UV sun exposure over time.
