Before treatment, you will be made comfortable on an exam chair, and a grounding pad will be applied to your back. After this, you will lie down and lubricant will be applied directly to your skin in the area to be treated. Next, the TempSure Firm hand-held device will massage the treatment area for approximately 15 minutes. The sensation is very comfortable, and feels much like a warm massage.
For energy-based treatments like TempSure Firm, Dr. Alissa Lamoureux provides you with the safest and most comfort-enhancing techniques to make your experience a great one. She ensures that you have adequate time to pre-treat with anesthetizing agents, and during the procedure she will make sure you’re positioned comfortably and that a cooling device (such as a Zimmer chiller) is used to provide instant comfort if needed.
The hand-held device moves back and forth as the heat is increased to effectively melt fat, tighten skin, and decrease the appearance of cellulite. This radiofrequency heat stimulates collagen production, which helps reduce the “orange peel” cellulite effect. Typically about 4-6 treatments are needed for optimal results, spaced at 2-4 week intervals. Maintenance treatments should be performed annually or semi-annually.

Downtime from TempSure Firm is very minimal, and most patients return to their normal activities right after a treatment. However, you can expect warmth, swelling, and minor redness in the treated area for a couple of days.
