Menopause is a normal stage of every woman’s life, marking the end of her childbearing years. However, menopause doesn’t happen all at once. In fact, the transition to menopause lasts years. Know the signs that you’re entering menopause.
Many people consider turning to a surgical procedure when they realize their skin is starting to show the signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, and especially loose skin are often the last straw for those who’ve been holding out against this type of anti-aging option. Surgery is not your only option, however: There’s a nonsurgical procedure that can tighten your loose skin and reduce wrinkles and signs of aging.
Lena Speck Hopkins, MD, swears by TempSure™ Envi, a cutting-edge treatment that utilizes heat and radiofrequency energy to create stunning effects — effects that do not require surgery and are still highly impressive and noticeable.
TempSure Envi is a Cynosure technology that utilizes radiofrequency energy to visibly tighten your skin in a natural, nonsurgical way, reducing minor to moderate signs of aging. Radiofrequency treatment has been used for some time to treat aging skin, but this new technology makes it even more effective and simple. This amazing device makes sure your skin quickly reaches and stays at a safe and effective temperature range for best results.
A TempSure Envi treatment begins with applying a gel directly to your skin. Then, a handheld wand glides over the treatment area and delivers radiofrequency energy deep into your skin. The Tempsure Envi technology comes into play as the temperature increases: Sensors monitor the temperature, modulating the device’s delivery of radiofrequency so your skin always stays at the appropriate heat level.
In addition, the new device also avoids stimulating the nerves as much as older devices do. This makes it safer to use at high temperatures, and patients report that it’s more comfortable.
The device massages your skin’s surface yet manages to keep it at safe, effective temperatures. Beneath that top layer, the radiofrequency energy is stimulating the creation of new collagen. This effect continues after the procedure, too, and in about 30 days, the new collagen becomes denser and synthesizes, smoothing out wrinkles and tightening loose skin.
In almost every way, yes. The use of radiofrequency treatment to boost collagen production is much safer and less invasive than surgery to reduce lines and wrinkles and firm up your skin. TempSure Envi does not require anesthetic, and it’s a relatively mild procedure.
The procedure itself utilizes your skin’s own healing properties, and patients often see results in the first week with further results becoming increasing noticeable in the weeks following treatment. Also, a TempSure Envi procedure only takes about 20 to 40 minutes, so it’s easy to do on your lunch break. Better yet, you don’t have to endure weeks of uncomfortable recovery or downtime.
If you want to fight back against the signs of aging, tightening loose skin without surgery, contact Dr. Speck Hopkins today. Call our Harlingen, Texas, office to make an appointment to learn more or to find out if you’re a good candidate for TempSure Envi radiofrequency treatment.
