Frequently Asked Questions
What is TempSure Envi?
TempSure Envi is an advanced monopolar Radio frequency device that is used to heat the deep layers of skin to regenerate collagen, reduce wrinkles, forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, smile lines and wrinkles on the chin.
What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening / Facial Treatment?
Radio frequency is an aesthetic technique that uses radio frequency energy to heat tissue and reduce wrinkles. Radio frequency is completely non-invasive. During treatment a special gel is applied on the patient's skin for comfort and safety. Radio frequency treatment is delivered deep inside the skin tissues using the probe emitting radio frequency waves. This energy stimulates collagen production which results in tighter, younger looking skin.
What is the problem?
As we age, our bodies lose the ability to generate collagen as fast as it is depleted resulting in loss of skin firmness. This leads to wrinkles and fine lines, leaving you with smile line, crow’s feet and other bothersome creases.
Is this treatment safe?
Yes, it’s safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure, so it fits perfectly into any beauty maintenance routine, 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. 99% of patients described the treatment as comfortable.
How does Skin Tightening on Face works?
During this treatment, you will experience a gentle warming sensation around the target areas. Radio waves penetrate the patient’s outer skin layers, delivering heat energy to the muscles and tissue beneath. This heat stimulates collagen production and that, in turn, triggers tissue contraction.
How does it help Dry Eyes?
Around the eye, TempSure Envi has an added advantage of delivering deep eyelid massage that “milks “the inflamed and clogged oil glands. This treatment is always delivered by either Dr Kaw or Dr Garfinkel. A topical anesthetic drop is instilled in the eye and a shield is inserted to protect the eyeball. A probe then delivers the RF treatment to the entire eyelid surface. The oil glands get a fresh start and in a matter of few weeks, the eyes feel sufficiently moist and comfortable. The frequency of the treatment varies depending upon the degree of the underlying inflammation and the recurrence of the dry eye symptoms.
