Your Questions Answered
TempSure® delivers radio frequency energy to stimulate production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are skin proteins that give the skin its firmness and elasticity. Collagen contributes to the firmness of the skin and gives it its strength, while Elastin gives skin its elasticity or ability to ‘bounce back’ when pinched. By stimulating the production of both proteins, TempSure® treatments give skin a youthful and healthy appearance.

TempSure® is the gold standard for skin tightening on the body. It is frequently used for skin tightening in the abdomen, arms, thighs and back. In our practice we also combine TempSure® with SculpSure® body fat melting to tighten skin once fat is permanently reduced by SculpSure® treatments.
Cellulite is a stubborn dimpling of the skin caused by compartments of subcutaneous fat directly under the skin. TempSure® has been shown to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and shows results within a short few weeks.
TempSure® treatments are FDA approved and very safe. TempSure® has not been studied in pregnant patients so we do not advise getting treatments during pregnancy. Additionally, it can cause disruptions in the operation of cardiac pacemakers and a few other implantable devices, which is why we do not recommend TempSure® treatments for such patients.
Typically, five to six treatment sessions, spaced a month apart, are needed to achieve optimal results. It is advisable to do one treatment every six months to a year to maintain results as our skin is alway subject to the effects of aging.
TempSure® treatments are painless. In fact, most describe it as a ‘relaxing hot stone massage’ and many patients fall asleep during the session. During treatments on the face you will feel mild pressure and heat during the treatment and the treatment lasts anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on which parts of the face and neck are being treated. Body treatments typically last between fifteen to thirty minutes.
Recovery is seamless with TempSure®. Immediately after treatment the skin will feel plump and fresh for up to a week, due to immediate post treatment ‘inflammation’. Over the next three weeks collagen and elastin production starts and old collagen is broken down to tighten skin and smooth wrinkles
Most people start seeing results within the first two treatments but we recommend 5 to 6 treatments for optimal results.
