What is Radiofrequency Laser?
Radiofrequency (RF) laser is used to safely and effectively treat baggy and dry eyes for a smoother, healthier-looking appearance. Meibomian Gland Disease (MBD) is the leading cause of dry eye and ocular discomfort, and it is now treatable with this radiofrequency laser!
South Bay Retina provides treatments to help people in San Jose, Gilroy, and surrounding areas look and feel their absolute best!
How Does the Radiofrequency Laser Work?
Radiofrequency laser heats your skin gently and 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 eyelid is reduced.
If you are suffering from dry eye disease, RF treatment can stimulate clogged tear glands and revive an optimal surface for the eye. After your treatment, we will provide recommendations and supplements to improve the quality of your tears.
What Can I Expect During My Appointment?
When you come in for your consultation at South Bay Retina, Dr. Narain and our team 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!
Am I a Candidate?
Radiofrequency treatments work on all skin types and everyone is a candidate. Treatments are primarily recommended to patients who experience skin laxity (looseness) around the eyes, baggy eyes, and dry eyes. We love this radiofrequency laser system because it can treat the smaller, more delicate areas on the face. The laser also tightens skin on other areas of the face, neck, and body.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
The treatment performed using Tempsure Envi’s Radiofrequency laser has been carefully designed with comfort in mind. The radiofrequency laser provides a pleasant and effective treatment every time. Most of our patients describe the treatment as comfortable.
How Long are the Treatments?
Treatments last about 30-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated. There is no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately.
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, your results will continue to enhance over time.
