What is TempSure Envi?
TempSure Envi is a non-surgical lid-lift (blepharoplasty) treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to safely and effectively treat dry eyes and what people often describe as ‘baggy eyes’ and wrinkles for a smoother, healthier-looking appearance. The Meibomian Gland Disorder (MBD) is the leading cause of dry eye and discomfort in the eye area, and it is now treatable with TempSure’s RF technology.
Over the past 15 years, research has revealed that the leading cause of eye discomfort for over 86% of patients with dry eye is MGD. River City Eyecare provides treatments to help people in Louisville, KY (and surrounding areas) look and feel their absolute best!
How Does The Treatment Work?
By gently delivering radiofrequency to your skin, TempSure increases your skin temperature for a prescribed period of time. This heat triggers the body’s natural reaction to produce new collagen fibers that are tighter and denser.
As a result, excess skin in the lower or upper eyelid is reduced and you can say goodbye to fine lines, skin tags, spider veins, and cherry-red spots. If you are suffering from dry eye disease, Envi stimulates clogged tear glands and revives an optimal surface for the eye. After your treatment, we will provide recommendations and supplements for you to improve the quality of their tears to further reduce the recurrence of dry eye symptoms.
What To Expect?
When you come in for your consultation at River City Eyecare, Dr. Darren Patrick will discuss your goals and create a custom treatment plan for you. During your treatment, you will experience a gentle warming sensation around the target area(s).
After the treatment, there is usually only a slight amount of redness on the skin, which quickly subsides. Immediately following your treatment, you will be able to return to your daily activities. That’s right; there is zero downtime so you can get back to doing what you love to do and look your best while doing it!
