Skin Tightening Q & A

ReShape LLC

What skin-tightening therapies are available?

At ReShape, PLLC, Dr. Macasieb offers TempSure Envi® and TempSure Vitalia® to apply radiofrequency energy to the skin of your face, neck, body, and vagina. The energy effectively penetrates below the surface layer of your skin to increase collagen production. Collagen is a natural compound produced by your body that tightens and lifts your skin.

Dr. Macasieb prefers TempSure because it stimulates your nerves much less than other similar therapies. This means he can use a higher temperature, yielding faster, more effective skin-tightening results.

Which areas can radiofrequency skin-tightening technology address?

Radiofrequency procedures can be applied almost anywhere that skin laxity is affecting your appearance and confidence. Common areas targeted include:

  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Eye area
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs and buttocks

TempSure Vitalia specifically addresses vaginal laxity. When your tissue loses strength in this area, it can negatively affect your sex life and sensation. Radiofrequency stimulates collagen production in vaginal tissue, creating a tighter vaginal region that will have a rejuvenated appearance and greater sensation.

What should I expect at a skin-tightening session?

A technician from ReShape, PLLC will apply the radiofrequency energy from the TempSure systems using a specialized handpiece that glides over the skin. Many types and sizes of handpieces are available, and each is specified to target particular areas.

During the session, you may feel some heat and tingling, but most people can tolerate the sensation just fine and need no topical numbing cream. You are not put under local or general anesthesia.

Your entire TempSure appointment should take 30-60 minutes depending on your aesthetic goals.

Is there downtime following a TempSure skin-tightening appointment?

One of the greatest benefits of TempSure radiofrequency is that it is noninvasive. It requires no incisions, blood loss, or sutures. You can return to your daily activities right away. You may have some temporary redness, but this will fade quickly.

When will I see skin-tightening results following radiofrequency therapy?

You may notice changes immediately after a session, but the complete results won’t show until your body has produced a greater amount of collagen. Optimal results will usually appear within four to six weeks.
