Tempsure Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging and most commonly occur in areas that receive plenty of exposure to sunlight, like your arms, hands, face, and neck. However, some factors can increase your risk of developing wrinkles:

Excess UV exposure

Spending too much time in the sun without proper sun protection can increase the speed of aging for your skin. This goes for time spent in tanning booths and other sources of UVs as well.

Smoking and other pollutants

Certain types of pollutants, including those found in cigarettes and cigars, accelerate your skin’s aging progress, leading to faster wrinkles.

How does the Cynosure Tempsure work?

The Cynosure Tempsure is a handheld device that Dr. Maribao uses to deliver radiofrequency (RF) waves into selected areas of your body. These RF waves heat up your skin and promote your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, leading to tighter skin and fewer wrinkles.

What can I expect during Cynosure Tempsure treatment?

Cynosure Tempsure treatment is an outpatient procedure performed at Dr. Maribao’s office. After laying down on the office table, Dr. Maribao applies a gel on your treatment areas that facilitates smooth movement for the handheld device. He then waves the handheld device across the selected area, safely heating up the deeper layers of skin for treatment.

The entire procedure is painless and takes between a half hour and an hour depending on what areas of your body need treatment. Once your treatment is complete, you’re free to go about your normal daily activities.

When should I see results?

In most cases, you should see immediate results following your treatment, with additional improvements within two to three months following the procedure.

How long your results last depend on your age as well as some lifestyle choices, such as whether you smoke or get a lot of sun. With that said, your results may last up to a year and beyond with regular maintenance.
