Dry Eye and Lid/Skin Treatments FAQ:
What is TempSure Envi Radiofrequency?
TempSure uses radiofrequency waves to gently heat your skin for a defined amount of time to trigger the body to produce new collagen. New collagen fibers are tighter and more dense reducing the amount of excess skin.
How does it work for dry eyes?
We use TempSure specifically for the eyelids and the skin around the eyes to stimulate new collagen production resulting in a tightening of the eyelids. In addition, the specific amount of heat applied and massaging helps unclog tear glands and provides a more optimal eye surface to relieve dry eyes. Improving lid structure and tear quality is the main goal of our radiofrequency treatment, which is a more permanent solution than eye drops alone.
Am I a candidate?
TempSure Envi works on all skin types and gentle on the delicate areas of the face more so than other treatments. This treatment is the best for patients with dry eyes, loose skin around the eyes, baggy eyelids, or all of the above.
What can I expect during the treatment and is it safe?
It is 100% safe and patients often describe a gentle warming sensation like a hot stone massage during the session. There is no downtime post-treatment and you can return to your normal routine right after. You can expect each treatment session for the eyes to take about 20-30 minutes and additional time if the patient prefers a full face treatment as well. Multiple sessions are necessary for achieving the best results.
How many treatments are needed?
We usually recommend a series of treatments about a month apart followed by maintenance treatments every 6-12 months afterward. Every patient is different and a consultation will best determine the number of treatments for optimal skin and dry eye health.
When will I see results?
Right away! Your skin will look and feel tighter immediately after finishing the first treatment and become more permanent with each additional session. Just think of it like working out and building muscle, the same type of process occurs in building new collagen and improving the eyelid structure.
