Skin Tightening Q&A

Q-Care Aesthetic Laser Care

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is one of the most exciting new developments in the field of medical aesthetics. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that more than 330,000 women and men in the U.S. underwent nonsurgical skin tightening in 2017, which was a 9% increase over the year before.

Nonsurgical skin tightening is accomplished by heating up the skin so that it enters a healing phase that stimulates the production of new collagen. Dr. Charlotten and the Q-Care aesthetic professionals use TempSure’s targeted laser energy to tighten and firm your skin.

Where can I use TempSure skin tightening?

You can tighten almost any area of your body where your skin has lost elasticity. Common areas to tighten with TempSure include:

  • Midface
  • Lower face
  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Decolletage
  • Hands

What happens during a TempSure treatment?

Most women and men who undergo TempSure skin tightening report that it’s a relaxing and comfortable treatment. While you recline, Dr. Charlotten or another Q-Care pro directs radiofrequency (RF) energy to the innermost layers of your skin.

You may feel alternating sensations of warmth and cooling. The TempSure applicator keeps track of your skin temperature, so you never feel uncomfortably hot.

Depending on how large of an area you want to treat, your TempSure session will probably take no more than 25-30 minutes. Afterward, your skin may be slightly red and tender for a couple of days.

How long does it take to tighten skin with TempSure?

TempSure instigates collagen remodeling in your skin, which is a process that takes months to complete. However, the TempSure system begins to tighten your skin almost immediately.

Many men and women can discern a difference in firmness and tone directly after their treatment, which only improves over the following weeks or months. Most patients find they need a series of several treatments to get the firmness and rejuvenation they desire. Individual results may vary.

Does skin tightening look natural?

TempSure skin tightening makes your skin look healthy and glowing. Because TempSure stimulates your skin to create more collagen, you look refreshed rather than unnatural or “plastic.”
