There’s a lot of options to explore when you are looking into an effective way to reduce dry eye symptoms. There are drops and supplements and ointments, but a new service called TempSure Envi is a proven method of helping those with dry eyes.
Let's take a look at dry eye syndrome and how exactly TempSure helps.
What is Dry Eye Syndrome?
Your eyes have three layers that must stay in balance to maintain proper eye health. There is a water layer, a mucus layer, and an oil layer that all must be in perfect balance to function optimally, and when something disrupts this balance, you experience dry eyes.
Dry Eye Syndrome or Ocular Surface Disease is a result of your eye’s tear film disrupted or damaged. It can be caused by or influenced by a variety of factors including your age, gender, device usage, medications, disease, contact lens use, allergies, and more.
When you experience dry eye syndrome, your comfort and vision are impacted by the lack of hydration that supports healthy eye function. Your symptoms may include burning, grittiness, excessive tearing, redness, discomfort, or reduced vision. Chronically dry eyes can even lead to a long-term loss of vision.
What is TempSure Envi, and how can it help with dry eye symptoms?
TempSure is a non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency waves to encourage the tissue of your eyelids to increase collagen and elastin production, which improves the blinking process. Also, the warming that your meibomian glands experience during the treatment can improve the expression of oil into this respective eye layer, reducing the evaporation of your natural tears and keeping your eyes more hydrated and moisturized.
With this non-invasive, needle-free, pain-free procedure, you safely and effectively treat both drooping eyelids and blocked meibomian glands (one of the leading causes of dry eye symptoms!) so that you can look, feel and see better! Plus, another benefit of this procedure is that there is no downtime and you can expect to return to your normal activities after your treatment is complete.
how long do the results last?
TempSure’s results can show up after only one treatment, and continue to improve in the weeks that follow. Your ocular aesthetician or ophthalmologist may recommend returning for follow-up appointments because the new collagen fibers and your meibomian glands are still subject to the effects of aging.
What can I expect during my TempSure appointment?
One of the benefits of TempSure is that it is a generally painless procedure, and there is no downtime required after each treatment. Your appointment may last between 30 to 60 minutes, and you can go right back to your usual activities when you are finished. You may experience a little redness, but this usually goes away within a day.
During the procedure, the technician simply guides the TempSure handpiece over the areas of the skin that are to be treated while you sit or lie down in the office. Then you can be out and on your way, and ready to start seeing the results of your treatment!
