Tighten Loose Skin Without Surgery

The road to youthful skin has been traditionally paved with invasive procedures that are effective, but costly in terms of downtime and, well, cost. Thanks to innovative laser technology that works with your body to refresh and revitalize your skin on a cellular level, we can turn back the clock on aging skin without the need for surgery.

At Alexandria Aesthetics, we provide the services you need to look and feel great, inside and out. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Kantha Stoll, we offer facial aesthetic treatments using a state-of-the-art laser system called TempSure™ Envi, which is helping our patients in Alexandria, Virginia, tighten loose and sagging skin, giving them an appearance that’s more in line with their youthful spirit.

How it works

TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat specific skin tissue just below your skin’s surface. This process taps into your body’s existing collagen and elastin, which naturally firms up your skin and gives it more tone and elasticity. Not only does TempSure Envi wake up existing collagen, this technology also boosts collagen production, giving your skin new resources to create a stronger structural network.

One of the most important things to note about this treatment is that the radiofrequency energy we use is on the lower end of the spectrum, which means we can safely extend the energy into a deeper layer of skin than many other laser skin treatments.

A softer, gentler approach

TempSure Envi is gentle on your skin. During the treatment, we pass a wand over your tissue to deliver the radiofrequency to a specially targeted area based on your treatment needs and goals. The instrument has built-in temperature control monitoring so that we can deliver perfectly even results.

In fact, the TempSure Envi system is so gentle that we can use it to address the skin under your eyes, as well as crow’s feet, marionette or smile lines, and wrinkles on your forehead.

No surgery, no downtime, just results

Since TempSure Envi is a nonsurgical option, you don’t have to worry about anesthesia, incisions, stitches, blood loss, or downtime. Once your treatment is over, you’re free to get on with your day without skipping a beat.

Typically, patients see some tightening after the first treatment due to coagulation, and the full effects kick in after four to six weeks as your skin rebuilds on the inside. Most of our patients benefit from three to five treatment sessions, which typically last about an hour. We space the treatments out by three to four weeks to allow time for your body to respond with renewed resources. But your patience is well rewarded when, after several months, your skin looks younger and fresher thanks to a beefed-up network of support in your tissue, which smooths out wrinkles and tightens your skin.

A combination approach

Another great upside of TempSure Envi is that we can use it in combination with injectables like BOTOX® and other skin treatments, making TempSure Envi the go-to for patients who want to find their own Fountain of Youth without committing to plastic surgery. We schedule the companion treatments appropriately — for example, injectables like BOTOX need to be administered either two weeks before or after each TempSure treatment.

If you’d like to get started on younger-looking skin with our TempSure Envi system, please give us a call or use the online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
