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.

TempSure Envi

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.

Patients with moderate to severe dry eye may have persistent damage to the corneal surface. These patients will likely benefit from treatment with a PROKERA® Amniotic Membrane. Donated amniotic tissue is held in place over the cornea with a small ring for several days. This tissue promotes corneal healing and can keep even severely dry eyes comfortable for months after removal. To learn more about PROKERA® Amniotic Membrane, check out the information below.
