Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a treatment to achieve a smoother, tighter complexion by rebuilding your skin at the cellular level. Oahu OB/GYN offers skin tightening with TempSure Envi, a non-surgical therapy that's quick enough to squeeze in over your lunch hour. 

How does skin tightening work?

TempSure Envi is a state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology that slowly heats your skin. This painless, gentle heat triggers a natural rejuvenating response at the cellular level to tighten your skin.

In time, your skin forms new collagen, which is an essential building block of firm, youthful skin. This new collagen creates a firmer, tighter appearance to your skin, smoothing and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles on your face, and even cellulite on your body. 

Does skin tightening work on all facial wrinkles?

TempSure Envi skin tightening is effective on the prime areas of your face where sagging and wrinkles are most likely to occur. The treatment helps to minimize and tighten:

  • Smile lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow's feet
  • Frown lines

The treatment also helps to reduce the appearance of fine facial lines.

How long does skin tightening take?

Your treatment at Oahu OB/GYN typically takes 45 minutes or less. There's no downtime, so you can get back to work or resume all of your daily activities immediately.

Is skin tightening painful?

During your Envi skin tightening treatment at Oahu OB/GYN, you feel a gradual sensation of warmth. The warmth is around 40-42 degrees Celsius — the ideal temperature to promote the growth of new collagen. However, the treatment isn't hot or painful. Almost 100% of patients say the procedure is painless. 

What should I expect after skin tightening?

Skin tightening may make your face slightly red, but this generally goes away soon after your treatment is complete. Your skin may feel tighter right away. In about one month, your new rejuvenated skin fully forms.

How many skin tightening treatments do I need?

The team at Oahu OB/GYN may recommend regular maintenance treatments to keep up your firm, more youthful complexion. They discuss your options so you can choose a treatment schedule that’s right for you.
