Skin Tightening

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is an aesthetic treatment Dr. Nikkhah Abyaneh offers at her practice to help improve the appearance of your skin and reduce the signs of aging. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, which is the structural protein that provides your skin with its strength, elasticity, and support. Lack of collagen causes your skin to sag, which creates lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin.

TempSure™ Envi is equipped with radiofrequency energy that, when applied to your skin, causes your cells to contract, creating an immediate tightening effect. The energy also stimulates the cells in the deep layers of your skin to up its production of collagen, which further enhances the results of your treatment to restore your youthful look.

Am I a good candidate for skin tightening?

Dr. Nikkhah Abyaneh determines if you’re a good candidate for skin tightening during a consultation. You may want to schedule a consultation if you’re looking for a noninvasive treatment to:

  • Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten the crepey skin on your arms, abdomen, or legs
  • Get rid of cellulite

The radiofrequency energy created by TempSure Envi is so gentle it can be used on all skin types and any parts of your body. It’s safe enough to use on your face to get rid of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines.

What can I expect during skin-tightening treatments?

Dr. Nikkhah Abyaneh performs your skin tightening at the office. You shouldn’t feel any discomfort during your treatment. The length of your procedure varies depending on the area of your body undergoing treatment, but shouldn’t take longer than an hour.

There’s no downtime following your skin tightening, so you can resume your usual activities afterward. You may experience some redness at the site of your treatment, but this disappears quickly. 

Because TempSure Envi uses such gentle energy, you may need more than one treatment to get the most benefits. Dr. Nikkhah Abyaneh develops your treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect. 

How long does it take to see results from skin tightening?

Due to the tightening action of TempSure Envi, you may notice an improvement in the look of your skin soon after your treatment. But it takes time for your skin to create new collagen, and it may be several weeks until you see the full effects of your treatment.
