At Radiance MD, skin tightening is a noninvasive energy-based treatment that can diminish or fully smooth wrinkles and lines. It also works against other features associated with skin laxity, like jowls or a turkey neck. If you feel that these features affect your appearance negatively or make you look older than you are, Dr. Jnananand can help you decide if skin tightening is the best option for your treatment.
Many of the age-related skin features are directly related to collagen and elastin loss. These are two proteins that hold your skin’s structure, keeping it tight and firm. Skin-tightening treatments help restore them to keep your skin looking great as you age.
One of the best parts of skin-tightening treatments with TempSure is the immediate results. Even after the initial effect impresses you, the results continue to improve with time. Dr. Jnananand typically recommends a short series of skin-tightening treatments for the best possible long-lasting effect.
At Radiance MD, Dr. Jnananand uses TempSure to tighten your skin without a single injection or incision. The handheld TempSure device delivers a gentle stream of radiofrequency energy deep into your skin. The energy heats the deep layers of your skin without harming the superficial layers.
The heat causes a reaction within your skin to start rebuilding and remodeling with collagen and elastin. It also causes your tissues to contract in real time, causing the tightening effect you see right away.
During the treatment, you can lie back and relax as Dr. Jnananand glides the handpiece across your skin in your chosen treatment areas. The treatment takes 30-60 minutes total and is not uncomfortable or painful.
While individual results from TempSure skin tightening vary, you can expect the results of your initial series of treatments to last for up to six months. Then, you can book follow-up treatments at Radiance MD to continuously tighten your skin over time. To keep your skin looking its best for as long as possible, you should:
It’s important to note that, while skin tightening can make a difference for your appearance, it can’t bring the process of aging to a halt. Your skin naturally continues to lose collagen and elastin. However, skin-tightening treatments can make your skin look its best for your age.
