Do you find yourself pulling your skin back on various parts of your body, creating the tighter, smoother surface of your yesteryears? Thanks to new laser technology called TempSure™ Envi, the healthcare providers at Access Healthcare are helping their patients in Apex, North Carolina, tighten their skin without surgery. If you’d like to explore TempSure skin tightening, call or use the online scheduling tool to request an appointment.
Your skin begins to loosen and sag for several reasons. First and foremost, the natural loss of collagen and elastin — the two proteins that provide the structural support for your skin — means your skin begins to lose elasticity and tone with age. This loss is natural and often more pronounced for women going through menopause, though men see a gradual decline, too.
Second, your skin has undergone a fair bit of abuse over the years, which begins to inevitably take its toll. Leading the charge is exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which breaks down your skin cells.
Rounding out the aging process in your skin is the loss of fat, or volume, especially in your face. Without the structural proteins to hold it in place, the small amount of fat in your face succumbs to gravity, robbing you of your youthful volume.
Using the Envi system, your doctor at Access Healthcare delivers radiofrequency energy through your skin without harming the surface area. This energy signals a mild healing response in your body, which responds by increasing its production of collagen and elastin. This renewed structural support tightens and smooths out your skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
This system can also be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite or sagging skin on other parts of your body.
The answer to this depends upon the areas you want to tighten. In most cases, you should count on several treatments (three to five) for maximum effect. These treatments are spaced several weeks apart to allow time for your body to respond in between your appointments at Access Healthcare.
Each session lasts less than a half an hour, and since the technology is noninvasive, there’s no downtime afterward.
As your body sets to work to build up your skin again with new collagen and elastin, your results will gradually reveal themselves over the 6-12 weeks following your treatments.
The results of this procedure are long-lasting. When age begins to catch up with you again down the road, you simply return to Access Healthcare for a follow-up TempSure Envi treatment.
