TempSure Envi Radiofrequency FAQ

FAQ ThumbnailWhat is TempSure Envi Radiofrequency?
TempSure Envi is a gentle radiofrequency treatment that reduces the symptoms of dry eyes and ocular surface disease. As an added bonus, it also tightens the skin around the eyes, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure, so it fits perfectly into any beauty or ocular surface disease maintenance routine any time of year!

How does TempSure Envi Radiofrequency work?
TempSure Envi works by targeting the oil and tear glands around your eyes, delivering radio frequency energy that regenerates cells and stimulates clogged glands to increase lubrication. As your skin’s temperature increases, the treatment triggers a natural response for your skin to create new collagen. These new collagen fibers are tight, dense, and neatly organized, giving you tighter, younger-looking skin. Many patients report looking younger and more refreshed after a series of treatments.

Does it hurt/is there any downtime?
During the treatment, you’ll experience a gentle, pain-free warming sensation around the eyes. Many of our patients say it feels like a hot stone massage. Most eye treatments can be performed in under 20 minutes, and most full-face treatments can be performed in under 45 minutes. After the treatment, there is usually only a slight redness of the treated area. This redness will generally disappear soon after. You’ll be able to return to your daily activities immediately following treatment.

How many sessions are required?
A series of treatments is always recommended, but every patient is different. TDuring your consultation, Dr. DenHartog and our TempSure technician will be able to create a plan just for you. Following the full initial treatment session, it is recommended to receive maintenance treatments for optimal long-term results, usually every 6-12 months.

How much does TempSure Envi Radiofrequency for Dry Eye treatment cost?
Pricing can vary based on your needs, so our TempSure technician and Dr. DenHartog can best recommend the appropriate treatmenat package, to include IPL, debridement, and/or radiofrequency, that will best meet your needs.
We also accept Care Credit to finance your treatments on a monthly basis.
