BioDOptix® amniotic extracellular matrix is a dehydrated membrane allograft derived from human amniotic tissue that is intended for use in ocular tissue repair.

Research has shown that placental tissues can promote new tissue formation, reduce scar tissue formation, modulate inflammation and pain found in dry eye and may have antimicrobial effects.

What to Expect:
Lay back and relax to some soothing spa music while we perform a thorough cleaning of the lid margin and lashes using the Zocular ZEST kit made with micellar okra complex to gently lift and clear oil, debris, and any residue on the eyelid margins and lashes. The procedure requires no downtime and you can enjoy the immediate results of cool, refreshed eyelids. Results can be maintained with an at-home daily lid hygiene routine designed by Dr. Mota and Dr. McNutt.
HERE’S HOW THEY WORK:
The idea behind punctal plugs is simple. Tiny, dissolvable or non-dissolvable plugs are inserted into your tear drainage ducts (puncta is the opening to the drainage canal) where they act as a dam. Whatever tears you do have now have no other direction go except to stay onto the surface of your eyes enhancing your lubrication. By blocking these drains, more natural infection-fighting tears bathe and soothe the eye, which may either lower your need to use eye drops, or eliminate the need for eye drops altogether.
Punctal Plugs can also reduce or eliminate the major cause of contact lens discomfort.
TO REDUCE FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
TempSure Envi is a non-invasive treatment that targets fine lines and wrinkles on the face. As we age, the body’s production of collagen slows down causing a loss of elasticity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form.
For Dry Eye (Blocked Oil Glands) TempSure Envi delivers energy to the oil and tear glands around your eyes, boosting your body’s own natural healing responses deep beneath the skin so you will be able to create more of your own tears and restore your optimal eye surface to reduce irritation.
“I have been dealing with dry eye for years. I felt like my eyes were faucets constantly leaking. After 3 sessions of the Tempsure therapy, my watery eyes are almost never a problem-even during allergy season!! ” – Emily W.
Marie Claire called it a “Non-Surgical, Completely Painless, 20-Minute Face Lift”
NO SURGERY, NO NEEDLES NO DOWNTIME
Most patients begin to see results shortly after the first treatment.

How Does TempSure Envi Work?
Using safe, powerful, and highly effective radiofrequency energy, our treatment gently delivers a therapeutic level of heat to the delicate tissue surrounding the eye. This heat signals your body to reboot its natural healing processes, which in turn helps to boost collagen to tighten the skin around the eyes, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and providing relief from your dry eye symptoms.
What to Expect
TempSure is safe and can be performed on all skin types and levels of sun exposure, so it can be performed year-round. Treatments typically last 30-45 minutes depending upon treatment area. During treatment, you will experience a warming sensation around the treated area(s).
After the treatment you may experience a slight redness of the treated area which is caused by the raised temperature of the skin during the procedure. This subsides quickly and will be able to return to your normal routine immediately following treatment.
You’ll see some tightening effects after your first treatment, but the real results are noticeable after four to six weeks. For best results, a series of treatments is recommended. Because every patient is different, the optimal number of treatments may vary.
