Skin tightening refers to any procedure that firms the skin, improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and dimples. Dr. Singleton uses both laser and radio-frequency energy to encourage collagen and elastin production deep inside the skin’s layers.
Dr. Singleton uses TempSure™ radiofrequency and Icon™ lasers to improve the appearance of:
You will need multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to get the best results.
Radiofrequency and laser technologies are on the cutting edge of cosmetic treatments, minimizing the need for more extensive surgical procedures like facelifts. Each one affects the skin differently.
Radiofrequency (RF) heats deep inside the layers of the skin to encourage collagen and elastin production, cell turnover, and growth factor response. These are the ingredients for effective skin rejuvenation.
TempSure uses safe, temperature-regulated RF waves, so you shouldn’t feel any pain. The highly targeted system doesn’t cause any damage to the skin’s surface either.
Lasers use high-frequency light energy to encourage the same type of collagen and elastin response. Lasers are best for treating the outer layers of skin.
Laser treatments are safe when performed by a skilled professional like Dr. Singleton. Lasers sometimes cause a slight stinging sensation, but Dr. Singleton does everything he can to make you comfortable.
Aside from skin-tightening treatments, Dr. Singleton offers additional TempSure applications, including:
Skin-tightening treatments typically take anywhere from 30-60 minutes and don’t leave noticeable tracks afterward. Recovery is also quick, so you don’t need to schedule any downtime.
Both procedures also encourage your body’s healing responses and firming abilities, so the results are natural and permanent. Natural aging can still take effect after you’ve had the procedure, so Dr. Singleton recommends occasional touch-ups.
TempSure technology has distinct advantages, such as its revolutionary temperature regulation system, to give you the most consistent results. The RF technology is also appropriate for all skin types.
