TempSure Envi Radiofrequency Therapy
The most common cause of dry eyes is a problem with the tear glands called meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). Radiofrequency therapy treats MGD at the source by using gentle heat to stimulate these glands so they can produce better quality tears. This treatment also has an anti-aging effect, boosting collagen production to reduce the look of fine lines around the eyes.

What to Expect from Radiofrequency Treatment
TempSure Envi is a gentle therapeutic approach to relieving the gritty, achy, and tired sensations that come with dry eyes. It doesn’t use any needles and requires no downtime, so you can get right back to life after your appointment.
During your appointment, we’ll apply a gel around your eye area, then use the pen-like TempSure device to apply gentle heat to the appropriate spots. Some people may see some redness, but it typically fades quickly.
We’ll suggest a course of treatments based on your needs. Each appointment will take between 30 and 60 minutes.
Who Can Get Radiofrequency Treatment?
The Tempsure Envi may be used on all skin types, but should not be used in the presence of autoimmune disease, pregnancy, diabetes, herpes simplex, or active inflammation. Radiofrequency therapy has been shown to be effective for treating dry eyes associated with MGD. If MGD is a likely cause of your dry eyes, we may recommend TempSure Envi as part of your dry eyes treatment plan.
You may also want to ask us about TempSure Envi if you have:
- Fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes
- Bags under the eyes
- Other signs of aging or sagging skin around the eyes you’d like to tighten
