As the sun sets earlier, it’s common to feel like your spirits are dropping right along with the temperature outside. Besides the lack of mood-boosting energy we naturally derive from the sun, winter weather can strip the moisture from your skin, highlighting wrinkles and fine lines.
Fortunately, we can count on the sun returning to bring light and warmth to our days. We’re all increasingly aware however, that with each passing year the preservation of our bright, supple, fresh and glowing skin isn’t as certain as the change of seasons. ENTER TEMPSURE ENVI!
TempSure Envi has been a hot topic around here, and we’ve outlined the skin-tightening benefits from wrinkle reduction to minimizing the appearance of cellulite. The treatment experience is extremely pleasant and relaxing. The warming sensation is reportedly similar to a hot-stone massage, and leaves patients feeling soothed and smoothed. I’m feeling the chill melt away just thinking of it….
Providers and patients are reporting positive results, earning this new platform an excellent reputation for success!
As previously mentioned, TempSure Envi has arrived at Amanda Rose Esthetics! We know it’s going minimize fine facial lines and wrinkles and tighten skin painlessly and with zero downtime, but let’s talk about HOW.
Collagen Synthesis – TempSure Envi delivers radiofrequency technology to gently heat your skin. Increasing the skin’s temperature for a defined, therapeutic time will trigger a natural response for your skin to create new collagen.
Collagen Remodeling – The new collagen fibers are tight, dense, and neatly organized giving you tighter, younger-looking skin.
Now, let’s discuss EXPECTATIONS.
It’s best to schedule a series of treatments, then plan for regular maintenance treatments to help counteract the loss of collagen that is part of the natural aging process.
- During a face treatment, you will experience a gentle warming sensation around the target area(s). Most treatments can be performed in under 45 minutes, which makes this a great lunch time option.
- After the treatment there is usually only a slight redness of the treated area. This redness generally will subside soon after. You will be able to return to your daily activities immediately following treatment!
What is it? TempSure Envi is a brand new device that uses radiofrequency waves to smooth and tighten skin.
Why is it better than other RF devices? Cynosure, the maker of TempSure Envi has designed a device that stimulates the nerves much less than other devices, therefore a higher temperature can be applied which means TempSure delivers results faster, more efficiently and with less irritation to the skin surface. The PAIN-FREE treatment time is approximately 20 minutes per area, with NO DOWNTIME. 99% of patients described TempSure as relaxing!
Obviously Amanda Rose Esthetics is thrilled to be offering this revolutionary treatment, but we’re not alone! Check out this article from Marie Claire, and then call Amanda’s office to learn more!
The FDA Just Approved a Non-Surgical, Completely Painless, 20-Minute Face Lift
No, this isn’t a joke—it’s a very big deal.
What if I were to tell you that you could tighten your skin, soften your fine lines, and give your face the overall appearance of a dewy 22-year-old who’s spent her life living in a bubble? Oh, and it would only take 20 minutes? And oh, there would be virtually zero side effects or downtime?
You’d probably call me a liar or a witch, and honestly, both would seem correct, because this technology shouldn’t exist. And yet, thanks to the modern world and the FDA, it does now in the form of a little device called TempSure Envi.
TempSure is a heating device that emit radio frequency waves (don’t worry; they’re safe) deep into your dermis to stimulate collagen production. “It tricks your body into thinking it’s been injured, so your body will send growth factors to the area to build new collagen,” says dermatologist Arash Akhavan, M.D., founder of Dermatology and Laser Group in New York City. “That leads to firmer, tighter, less-wrinkled skin.”
The device itself isn’t revolutionary—heating devices have existed in your dermatologist’s office for years (think Ultherapy, Thermage, Thermi, and Pellevé). Instead, what’s extraordinary about TempSure is the way in which the radio waves are delivered into your dermis. “Tempsure stimulates your nerves much less than with other devices, which means we can use a higher temperature without any pain, making it faster and more effective,” he says.

Dr. Akhavan is among the first dermatologists in the world to have a TempSure in his office (it’ll be rolling out to other dermatologists in the coming months), and he assures the very skeptical me of just how painless the treatment is. “I’ve tested it out on myself, and there’s really no discomfort—you just feel a warming sensation on your skin—and there’s absolutely zero downtime,” he says. “You could get it done over your lunch break, and nobody would even be able to tell.”
Another magical thing about the procedure: The whole thing is over pretty quickly. Though the treatment time depends on area size, Dr. Akhavan says most places (like the full face, the full abdomen, above the knees, and behind the thighs) take 20 minutes each, with results seen almost immediately. “You’ll see some tightening effects after your first treatment, though the real improvements set in after four-to-six weeks,” he says.

Annoyingly, you do need more than one treatment—four treatments total, spaced every two-to-four weeks, depending on what you’re getting done—but the results are permanent. “The collagen that you generate from TempSure is permanent, though it won’t prevent gravity’s natural toll, which is why we recommend a touch-up session every six months or once a year,” he adds. But, of course, that’s totally optional, if you feel like chancing it.
“It’s a big leap in technology, in terms of results and comfort,” says Dr. Akhavan. “It’s truly the most-effective face lift and neck lift that doesn’t require surgery, Botox, or retinol.” The only downside? It ain’t cheap.
Prices vary, depending on where you live, who you see, and what you get done, but you can expect to pay between $2,000 and $4,000 for a set of four treatments. Still, if you’re looking to amp up your skin, and you’ve got some money to burn, why not immediately book a dermatology appointment? Excuse me while I go book mine.

All three are very similar in composition and work the same way to temporarily block nerve impulses to muscles, resulting in reduced or eliminated wrinkles caused by facial expression. You won’t stop smiling or frowning, but you will stop wrinkling!
During treatment, a very fine needle will be inserted for a few seconds with little more than a pinching sensation (a flu shot is much more painful than a stick of Botox.) Patient comfort is of great importance to Amanda and therefore, topical anesthetic cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment to reduce sensitivity.
You’ll see changes within 5-7 days, full result within approximately 2 weeks.
And here’s the basic fact that has made this treatment the number one anti-aging procedure in the U.S; you’re investing in your future. By minimizing the intensity and frequency of movement, these treatments also prevent the formation of deeper lines down the road. This adds a great deal of value to an already attractive package.
The most common areas addressed are forehead and between the brows, however treatments are often applied to other areas. Amanda will spend time with you to learn about all your hopes and dreams and together you’ll develop an action plan to achieve them.
