Diet and exercise can go a long way when you’re trying to get back in shape after childbirth. But pregnancy did more to your body than just accumulate a little extra fat; it stretched your skin to its max, and it doesn’t seem to be bouncing back.
We can help with that. Dr. Nirav Naik at New Life Aesthetics in Bakersfield, California, specializes in helping you look and feel your best, which may feel like an elusive goal after your body spent nine months expanding and changing. You can accomplish what seems impossible with a little extra help from advanced skin tightening technology — TempSure® Envi. Here’s how it works.
The science behind TempSure Envi
TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency technology emitted from a handheld device that hovers over the area you want to have treated. The energy penetrates the outer layers of your skin and targets the deeper tissues.
When the radiofrequency waves hit their mark, the cells heat up to a specific temperature. This thermal process feels pleasantly warm on the outside, but on the inside, major changes are occurring. Your body reacts to the heated tissues by amping up its production of collagen, which is the key to getting your prepregnancy skin back.
What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, and it’s a major component in several tissue types, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, hair, nails, and bones. It’s also the element responsible for your skin’s strength and resilience.
You can support your body’s production of collagen by eating a diet high in vitamin C, proline, glycine, and copper. But, if you smoke, spend too much time in the sun, and eat a lot of carbs, you can damage your collagen supply.
During pregnancy, your body went through massive changes — you not only shared nutrients with your growing baby, but the process of developing a human required extra nutrients to do the job well. If you didn’t pay attention to increasing your collagen supply, you’re likely seeing the results in your sagging skin and breasts.
What to expect from TempSure Envi
By stimulating your body’s natural collagen supply, TempSure Envi effectively shores up your skin and helps it return to its original shape and texture. Most of our patients say it feels like a hot stone massage, and they relax comfortably through the entire session. Here are the highlights:

While the results of your TempSure Envi session aren’t instant, they are ongoing. Over the weeks and months following your procedure, your body responds to the treatment and new collagen begins to build up your weakened skin tissues and restore its buoyancy and glow.
