What is TempSure Envi?
TempSure Envi is a noninvasive treatment option used to reduce the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles. The system uses radiofrequency energy to heat deep layers of tissue, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production for stronger, more youthful looking skin.
Who is a Candidate for TempSure Envi?
As we age, our bodies begin to produce less collagen, the key to our skin’s structure. This results in skin laxity with fine lines and wrinkles. If you experience these signs of aging in the face such as forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and more, you could benefit from TempSure Envi to tighten and smooth your skin. The system is effective at treating mild to moderate signs of aging and is great for those who are not ready for a more invasive procedure like a facelift. The gentle treatment is safe for all skin types and can be performed any time of the year, even if you have a tan.
The Treatment Process
The TempSure Envi treatment process is completely noninvasive, so no anesthesia is required. To begin treatment, a cooling gel will be applied to the skin. Using the appropriate TempSure Envi handpiece, radiofrequency is delivered to heat deep layers of tissue. The system uses controlled temperature to keep the skin from becoming too hot, making for a comfortable treatment process. As radiofrequency is being delivered, the skin is massaged in small circular motions. Once complete, the skin cools to its normal temperature. The treatment process typically takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment area. You can see improvements after just one treatment, but for optimal results, you may require three to six treatment sessions, spaced one to four weeks apart.
Results and Recovery
After treatment with TempSure Envi, there is no downtime so you can get back to your normal routine, incliding exercise. You might experience some redness immediately after treatment due to the rise in your skin’s temperature, however, this should disappear very quickly.
In just two to three days, you may notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. In the next few weeks, your skin will begin the collagen rebuilding process. Tissue growth factors are released, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. After about a month, these collagen and elastin fibers will have created the structure your skin needs for a tighter, more youthful appearance. Maximum improvement occurs up to 3 months after your last treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does TempSure hurt?
No, this radiofrequency technology is designed to be painless while promoting many benefits for collagen stimulation. Most patients describe the treatment as feeling like a hot stone massage.
Does TempSure tighten skin?
Yes, TempSure stimulates the production of collagen, which over time helps create a tighter appearance of the skin on the face or body.
Can TempSure help with cellulite?
Radiofrequency coagulation of skin tissues has shown in some cases to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It does not, however, reduce fat or release fibrous bands that are also responsible for the appearance of cellulite. Other modalities are needed to treat those issues.
How many TempSure treatments will I need?
It depends on the area we are treating, the amount of skin laxity, your age and your response to the treatment. For most patients, 4-6 treatments spaced about 3-4 weeks apart are required for optimal improvement. We also recommend maintenance treatments 1-2 time per year to keep your results looking their best.
Is TempSure FDA approved?
Yes, TempSure is an FDA-approved, non-invasive tissue coagulation device.
