What is TempSure Envi?
TempSure Envi is a radiofrequency (RF) laser treatment that safely and effectively treats dry eyes caused by Meibomian Gland Disease (MGD). MGD is the leading cause of dry eye and ocular discomfort in Alaska, and it is now treatable with this radiofrequency laser! The TempSure Envi treatment also helps to reduce baggy eyes for a smoother, healthier-looking appearance.
Accurate Vision Clinic is excited to provide this new treatment to our patients who have been suffering from dry eye.
How does TempSure’s radiofrequency laser work?
If you are suffering from dry eyes and Meibomian Gland Disease, Envi stimulates clogged tear glands which help to revive the tear film allowing for an optimal surface for the eyes. After your treatment, Accurate Vision Clinic will provide recommendations and supplements for patients to continue to improve the quality of their tears.
By delivering a radiofrequency laser to hear your skin gently, TempSure Envi increases your skin’s temperature for a defined amount of time. This heat triggers the body’s natural reaction to produce new collagen. These new collagen fibers are tighter and denser. As a result, excess skin in the lower or upper lid is reduced.
What can I expect during my appointment?
When you come in for your consultation, the doctor will discuss your goals and create a custom treatment plan for you. During your treatment, you will experience a relaxing warming sensation around the target area(s).
After the treatment, there is usually a slight amount of redness on the skin, which will quickly subside. Immediately following your treatment, you will be able to return to your daily activities, there is no down time!
Am I a candidate?
TempSure Envi works on all skin types, so everyone can benefit from this treatment. The best candidate for this treatment are for patients who experience dry eyes, skin laxity (looseness) around the eyes, and baggy eyes. This system is great because it can treat the smaller, more delicate areas of the face.
Does the procedure hurt?
TempSure Envi was carefully designed with the comfort of the patient in mind. The radiofrequency laser provides a gentle and effective treatment every time. Most of our patients tell us that the treatments are comfortable and relaxing.
How long are the treatments?
Treatments last about 30-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
How many treatments are needed?
We usually recommend that you schedule a series of treatments and regular maintenance appointments to help your body counteract the loss of collagen that is part of the natural aging process.
When will I see results?
Instantly! You will walk away from your appointment with a natural glow, and what many patients describe as a “tighter” feeling. Best of all, over time your results will continue to enhance over time.
