Tempsure Envi is an FDA-approved, non-invasive skin tightening procedure from Cynosure. It uses radiofrequency energy to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, improve skin tone and texture and provide overall skin revitalization. This gentle treatment requires no downtime and offers gradual, long-lasting results, making it an excellent choice for people seeking natural-looking skin rejuvenation with no downtime.
How Does Tempsure Envi Work?
The Tempsure Envi system uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin. The RF energy is converted to heat, which stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. Over the next month, this new, healthy tissue gradually replaces damaged cells, making the skin appear tighter and more youthful.
Tempsure Envi can treat the face, neck, chest, upper arms, knees or anywhere on the body with loose or thinning skin. It’s typically performed as a series of treatments scheduled 2–4 weeks apart.
- Improved skin tone – The RF energy helps stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother, and more even skin
- Smoother skin texture: Tempsure Envi reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and enlarged pores
- Firmer, more lifted skin: The device’s heat contracts and firms the skin, resulting in a more youthful look
- Increased skin hydration: Tempsure Envi encourages blood flow and oxygenation in the skin, resulting in a fuller, healthier look
Why Choose Tempsure Envi for Skin Tightening?
Tempsure Envi is safer than many other RF treatments due to its ability to precisely control the temperature of the skin during treatment. A state-of-the art sensor monitors your skin in real-time, ensuring that temperatures remain comfortable as the skin gradually heats. Three handpieces of varying sizes are used to personalize your treatment.
This radiofrequency treatment works for all skin types, including darker skin tones, with very minimal downtime and no adverse side effects. Together, these features mean that Tempsure Envi requires fewer sessions to achieve desired results and has fewer risks and side effects than other similar technologies.

Before & Afters
What to Expect from Your RF Skin Tightening Treatment
Your Tempsure Envi treatment begins with a gel being applied to the skin. Next, your provider uses the handpiece to massage the skin in small circles. You’ll experience an increasing warming sensation as treatment goes on, but the procedure is completely painless; many people compare it to a hot stone massage. The entire appointment will take 30–60 minutes, depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
Recovery and aftercare
A Tempsure treatment involves no recovery time; you can immediately return to all your usual activities and apply moisturizers or makeup if desired. The procedure does not cause sensitivity to light, but it’s recommended to wear SPF and reduce sun exposure to prevent future damage.
Some patients experience slight redness; should this occur, avoid contacting the skin with hot water until it resolves.
Immediately after treatment, you’ll notice a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; this effect is temporary and caused by mild swelling from the procedure. Seven to ten days after your session, your skin will start building new collagen and elastin. After a month, you’ll see a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles and feel that your skin is tighter and firmer.
Cost of Tempsure Envi
The cost of a Tempsure treatment depends on the size of the treatment area, how many sessions you purchase, your geographic location and the provider you choose. Generally, an initial series of treatments costs about $2,000, and individual sessions may cost anywhere from $200 to $700.
Tempsure Envi is a radiofrequency treatment for healthy men and women who desire firmer, younger-looking skin. The RF energy is converted to heat within the dermis, encouraging the production of healthy, more youthful skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. This gentle procedure is safe for all skin tones and has no downtime and minimal side effects, making it ideal for anyone seeking non-invasive skin rejuvenation.
How do I prepare for treatment?
In the week leading up to treatment, discontinue skin care products containing retinoids, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and similar active ingredients that may cause irritation. In the 48 hours before your session, drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol so your skin is optimally hydrated, further improving your results. Do not receive Botox or other neurotoxins for at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
The total number of Tempsure treatments you’ll need depends on the severity of your skin concerns and your aesthetic goals. Your provider will help you develop a treatment plan to achieve optimal results.
How long do results last?
The results of an initial series of treatments typically last about 6 months, although individual results may vary. Because the aging process inevitably will continue, many patients choose to schedule maintenance appointments every 6–12 months to keep encouraging new collagen growth.
Are there any side effects?
Tempsure Envi has no known side effects except for temporary slight redness.
