Reap the Benefits of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Are you seeing more fine lines, wrinkles, cellulite, and saggy or crepey skin as time passes? For most of us, older-looking skin on the outside affects how we feel about ourselves on the inside — especially here in Florida and the skin-baring season of summer.   

At Genesis Weight Loss & Wellness Center in Brooksville, Florida, we understand the frustration aging skin brings. That’s why our highly skilled doctor, Eugene Guerre Jr., MD, and the rest of our team offer non-surgical skin tightening to help you look and feel your best. 

We’ve put together this helpful guide to explain how you can reap the benefits of non-surgical skin tightening with TempSure™ Firm by Cynosure’s noninvasive radiofrequency technology.

Why is my skin looser and less youthful-looking?

Your body naturally creates collagen, a protein found in your skin, tendons and ligaments, bones, and muscles. Collagen fibers are long and sturdy and make up most of the connective tissues in your body. They’re what work to support your body’s structures.  

Collagen also plays an important role in the health of your skin. Found in the middle layer of your skin, collagen works with other cells, like elastin, to promote new skin growth, keeping your skin healthy and firm. 

As you age, collagen production naturally decreases, causing your skin to change. While our specialists at Genesis Weight Loss & Wellness Center can’t check your collage levels through a blood test, we can observe the decreased production by looking at your skin. 

Some signs of a decrease in collagen include:     

While it’s not possible to turn back time, you can improve collagen production and tighten your skin. Collagen production works like a domino effect: the more collagen present in your body, the more collagen your body continues to produce.  

What is non-surgical skin tightening?

Non-surgical skin tightening involves the use of safe and effective radiofrequency technology to naturally smooth out lines and wrinkles and tighten your skin. Using radiofrequency energy to heat your skin, we can stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. 

At Genesis Weight Loss & Wellness Center, we use the noninvasive TempSure Firm system to provide you with the best results possible. 

The FDA-cleared TempSure system ensures the targeted skin tissue reaches the optimal temperature for collagen production without overheating your sensitive tissues. The new collagen fibers that form as a result are tight, dense, and well-organized, leaving you with tighter, firmer, and younger-looking skin.

What areas can non-surgical skin tightening treat?

TempSure Firm works to reduce the appearance of cellulite and skin laxity on various parts of your body. Possible treatment areas include common sites of loose skin, such as: 

TempSure Firm also treats crepey skin, or skin that wrinkles like crepe paper. The heat energy that the TempSure system uses increases elasticity to reduce the appearance of crepey skin. We work with you to create a customized treatment plan to help you reach your skin-tightening goals.

What are the benefits of non-surgical skin tightening?

TempSure Firm’s non-surgical skin tightening is a pain-free procedure. Unlike surgical skin tightening, which is painful, many of our patients compare the warming sensation of the therapy to a comforting hot stone massage. 

And this noninvasive treatment requires no downtime and is risk-free. Unlike surgery, which requires weeks of recovery and comes with many risks, you’re able to pop in for the TempSure Firm treatment and get back to your daily activities right away. The only precaution you need to take is to wear sunscreen on the treated areas.  

In addition, non-surgical skin tightening is a quick procedure. The duration depends on the specific areas we’re treating and whether the treatment is combined with any other aesthetic services. Generally speaking, though, most of our patients find their entire treatment with TempSure Firm takes 5 minutes per body area, or 30-60 minutes total. 

You may notice an immediate glow to your skin as you leave our office, and your skin continues to look better and better as collagen production increases over time. Most of our patients receive more than one treatment, with optimal results taking five to eight treatments.
