As we age, our skin naturally loses fat, collagen, and elasticity that once kept it plump and youthful. While many people turn to invasive procedures, such as face-lifts, to tighten saggy skin, the expert team at Alex M. Mercado, MD in Flanders, New Jersey, has a better solution: TempSure™ Envi radiofrequency therapy. This noninvasive skin-tightening treatment delivers radiofrequency technology to gently heat your skin and stimulate the production of collagen. To learn more, call Alex M.

No matter how well you take care of your skin, the epidermis — the outermost layer of the skin — naturally thins and becomes more transparent as you age. The fat elastic tissue, called elastin, that once kept your skin plump and flexible also begins to fade.
There are many external factors that speed up the skin aging process, including:
Even the best diet and skin care routine can’t stop the inevitable aging process. While genetics plays a crucial role in the way your skin ages, you don’t need invasive cosmetic procedures to lift and tighten sagging skin.
TempSure Envi is a noninvasive radiofrequency treatment that tightens saggy skin, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces the appearance of cellulite. The treatments are safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure and can be used on both the face and body. The most common treatment areas include:
Whether you choose a face or body treatment, the entire session takes approximately one hour or less — it’s the perfect lunch-break option.
This skin tightening procedure is nonsurgical and noninvasive, so you don’t need to prepare before visiting Alex M. Mercado, MD. Once you and your primary care physician have discussed the areas you want to be treated, they use the device to heat your skin.
The heating process is completely controlled and monitored. While it does feel noticeably warm, the treatment does not burn your skin in any way. As the heat increases, your body naturally responds by creating new collagen to repair the damage and protect your skin.
Over time, these new collagen fibers — which are tight and dense — naturally lift and tighten loose skin, dramatically reducing the appearance of sagging skin, cellulite, wrinkles, and more. Most patients see subtle results immediately, especially around the face. However, the most dramatic skin-tightening results appear gradually over the coming months.
Because TempSure Envi is entirely noninvasive, you are able and encouraged to return for maintenance treatments. Call Alex M. Mercado, MD or schedule an appointment online to talk to an experienced primary care physician about the right treatment plan for your skin.
