Facial Skin Tightening with Tempsure


How It Works

Tempsure Envi by Cynosure is a multimodality, full body, non-invasive skin tightening system designed for the face, neck, and body to treat skin laxity, wrinkles, lines, and folds. It is safe for all skin types and can be done year round, regardless of a tan or skin color.

Tempsure Envi uses a monopolar RF (radio frequency) device that delivers heat deep into the dermal layer of the skin to stimulate new collagen production in order to tighten and firm the skin. With real-time temperature monitoring, your skin will be heated to the exact temperature needed to stimulate collagen and with real time temperate monitoring and safety there is no risk of burns.

Which areas can be treated?

With multiple handpiece sizes Tempsure Envi can be used to tighten skin:

  • Around the eyes
  • Lower face (around the mouth)
  • Full Face
  • Neck


  • What are the benefits of facial skin tightening treatment?
    •  Firm up loose skin – When collagen is in short supply, skin can lose its firmness and tone. By stimulating collagen production, skin can regain firmness.


    • Smooth out wrinkles – by introducing high heat this cause the skin to contract, thus
      smoothing out wrinkles to make skin look younger and firmer
  • Are there any risks or side effects?

    Tempsure is safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure, making it a great treatment any time of the year.

    TempSure Envi has been carefully designed with comfort and safety in mind to provide you with a comfortable and effective treatment every time. 

    Every treatment comes with its own individual risks, these will be discussed in depth prior to treatment.

  • What is the typical recovery time after facial skin tightening?

    After treatment the skin may appear slightly pink or mildly red, this will last for approximately 1-2 hours.

    Most can return to work or daily routine immediately after treatment.

  • Are the results permanent? If not, how long do they last? How often do you have to do it?

    Every patient and their skin is different. An assessment should be scheduled to determine how many treatments each patient may need.

    Patients typically require 3-5 treatments for facial treatments.

    After which maintnance is required to maintaine results, every 6-12 months 1-2 sessions is recommended depending on the age of the skin.

  • Can facial skin tightening help with reducing jowls and a double chin?

    Tempsure is best for improving skin quality and firmness, depending on the degree of jowling it can improve mild laxity.

    If jowling is severe a surgical procedure such as a facelift may be a better solution.

    For double chin, Tempsure can be combined with fat dissolving treatments or liposuction to firm skin under the chin as fat is removed from the area.

  • Can facial skin tightening be combined with other facial treatments?

    Yes! Often Tempsure is combined with injectable treatments such as Neurotoxins or Fillers. Or as maintenance options after more invasive treatments.

  • What OTHER skin treatments exist for the same issues? How do they compare?

    Other treatment options include, CO2 laser resurfacing to address skin laxity, poor skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scaring.

    Tempsure has the benefit of offering no downtime after treatment, the ideal age for best tempsure results is those in their 30’s-50’s who are beginning to experience signs of facial aging.

    For more mature skin that may require more invasive skin firming treatments, CO2 laser resurfacing may be the ideal option. This treatment does involve downtime after treatment for the skin to recover and heal.

    A physical consultation and assessment is always needed to determine which course of treatments will best suite your individual needs.

  • Is facial skin tightening painful?

    Tempsure Envi is a non-surgical treatment that tightens the skin without harming the surface of the skin. This means there is no cuts, nothing in the skin, and no discomfort during the treatment. A warm sensation, like that of a hot stone massage, may be felt. There is no downtime after the procedure, the warm tightening sensation may last a few hours after the treatment.

  • When will I see results and how many treatments do I need?

    Results may be felt instantly, your skin will feel firmer. After one session your skin will have a natural glow and will feel tighter and more lifted. For the face and neck, a series of 4-6 treatments is recommended to obtain optimal results, spaced 2 weeks apart. Followed by a maintenance treatment every 8-12 months.

  • How much do treatments cost?

    Treatment costs vary based on the area being treated. A physical assessment is needed to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment and to discuss pricing and sessions needed.
