Your skin takes a beating over the years from many things, including the sun. This leads to those dreaded wrinkles on your face and other areas of your body. You also lose some of the elasticity in your skin as you age, which is also disheartening when you’re trying to look your best. So what can you do to tighten things up so you’re ready to rock your bathing suit? The answer is TempSure.
At Lori Scott Family Care, our team specializes in all kinds of aesthetic treatments to help you both look, and feel younger. Dr. Lori Scott is our experienced doctor who helps you figure out what treatments you need to get you looking your best. Her range of treatments includes TempSure, which helps you tighten up in the areas you need it most.
What is TempSure?
TempSure is a type of treatment that helps you to firm up your skin that’s lost some of its elasticity. So how does this work? TempSure uses radiofrequency technology to tighten areas of your skin that you aren’t happy with.
It’s no secret that as you age, your skin, along with other things in your body, starts to show wear and tear. This is especially true if you like a nice glow to your skin with a tan, as the ultraviolet rays lead to decreased elasticity and wrinkles. Smoking and hormones are other factors that affect the way your skin looks.
However, the biggest cause of sagging skin is the decrease in elastin and collagen that’s a normal part of aging. As you get older, your body doesn’t make as much of these proteins, which causes your skin to lose its firmness.
How does it work?
Once you understand how this amazing treatment works, you’ll realize how very simple it is to get beautiful and firm skin. TempSure technology works by using both heat and radiofrequency to get rid of your saggy, wrinkly skin.
After Dr. Scott has you in for an initial consultation, she helps you figure out what areas need firmed up the most. You’ll then come back for the actual treatment. To start the treatment, Dr. Scott puts some gel on your skin, and then uses a wand over the problem areas.
The wand uses radiofrequency to lightly heat up your skin, which triggers your body to begin the healing process. To do this, your body ramps up collagen production to the areas you’re having treated. Increased collagen equals tighter, more youthful skin.
The entire process takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and is virtually painless. You may feel a warm sensation over the areas Dr. Scott is treating, but you shouldn’t feel much, if any pain.
The results you can expect
Many cosmetic treatments take days or weeks before you see the effects; this is not the case with TempSure. You’ll be able to see the results almost immediately, as you’ll have a beautiful glow to your skin as soon as you leave the office.
The best part is, your body continues to increase collagen production to keep your skin looking young and healthy for a while. This means you can rock your bathing suit all summer and feel confident in your tighter, glowing skin.
You might need another treatment in a year or so, just to help fight the normal wear on your skin as you age. However, the TempSure process helps your body to continually rebuild your skin with the extra collagen production.
With summer quickly approaching, you want to look your absolute best. If tempsure sounds like something you’d like to try, schedule an appointment with Dr. Scott by calling our office at 252-238-7079. You can also book a consultation online today.
