If we had to list our main reservations with face-lifts, they would be: A. They’re painful, B. They’re invasive and C. The process (including recovery) takes so long.
So we were psyched to hear about TempSure, a face-lift that was just approved by the FDA and basically eliminates all of our concerns.
TempSure is a heating device that emits (safe) radio frequency waves deep into your skin to stimulate collagen production. According to Marie Claire, dermatologist Arash Akhavan, M.D., founder of Dermatology and Laser Group in New York City is the first doctor in the world to offer TempSure in his office (though the device will be rolling out to other docs in the coming months).
The procedure is noninvasive, takes just 20 minutes and, according to Dr. Akhavan, totally painless. “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 told the mag. “You could get it done over your lunch break, and nobody would even be able to tell.”
The one downside? It’s not one-and-done. You’ll need four treatments, spaced every two to four weeks, but the results are permanent. Depending on your location and who you go to, you can expect to shell out between $2,000 and $4,000 for all four treatments.
But still, a painless lunch-break face-lift
