What is TempSure™ Envi?

Cynosure’s TempSure™ Envi system is the first medical platform capable of providing full-body skin tightening. As the system tightens and strengthens skin, it also diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite.

How does TempSure™ Envi work?

TempSure™ Envi uses radiofrequency (RF) waves, which safely pass through your skin and heat tissues below the surface. This type of heat treatment tightens skin by stimulating the production of collagen.

Collagen is naturally produced in your skin, where it’s essential for strength and tone. Over time, however, your skin produces less collagen, which is a major cause of wrinkles and loose skin.

Your skin continuously sheds old cells and replaces them with new cells that develop deep in the skin and migrate up toward the surface. As TempSure™ Envi increases collagen synthesis, your new collagen-rich skin is stronger and tighter.

What aesthetic problems are treated with TempSure™ Envi?

TempSure™ Envi is safe for all skin types, and you can get back to your daily activities as soon as Dr. Covington finishes your treatment. While it can be used on any part of your body, the most common problem areas treated include:


You can tighten skin around your eyes and mouth, above your eyebrows, and under your chin. You may also want to consider TempSure™ Envi to treat neck wrinkles.


Many patients use TempSure™ Envi to tighten loose skin on their abdomen, arms, back, and thighs. It also works well on your hands, knees, chest, and buttocks.

What makes TempSure™ Envi different?

Dr. Covington also uses Cynosure’s Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System, which can also tighten skin, but the TempSure™ Envi has several features that were specially designed to accommodate its body-wide capabilities, such as:

Differently sized handpieces

The handpiece must come into contact with your skin as it emits RF waves. A large handpiece used to treat your back can’t be used for small or rounded areas like your face and neck.

Dr. Covington can choose from differently sized handpieces that fit each body part, including one that’s specially shaped to deliver treatment to vaginal tissues.

Temperature-sensitive handpieces

Each handpiece contains an integrated temperature sensor that continuously monitors the treatment area. That ensures the tissues reach the temperature needed to achieve optimal results.
