ThermiEyes is a Safe and Effective Treatment
It is no surprise that as you age, your body gets older. Naturally, as you get older, certain areas of your body begin to show signs of your age. One of the first things to wane is your eyesight. Even if you are free from vision-threatening diseases, your vision won’t be as strong as it used to be. Outside of your senses, your muscles and bones grow weaker, and your body becomes more susceptible to the elements. Wrinkles have become synonymous with getting older. Your skin isn’t as tight and smooth as it used to be, causing noticeable lines across your face. In particular, the skin around your eyes is some of the thinnest and most delicate on your body.
It only makes sense that because this skin is so delicate that it would be more vulnerable to aging. The skin around your eyes will show drooping, wrinkling, and more effects of old age well before other areas on your body. Years of exposure to the sun, smiling, squinting, and frowning all add up to cause wrinkles, lines, and aged skin. Fortunately, there is a solution.
ThermiEyes is a nonsurgical treatment option that allows you to combat aging and wrinkles. This treatment helps smooth out your skin and can even help relieve symptoms of certain eye diseases. At First Eye Care North Arlington, our clinic is proud to offer this innovative treatment option to our patients. Today, we are going to take a look at how ThermiEyes works and how it can help you.
What is ThemiEyes?
As we mentioned earlier, ThermiEyes is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment option that smooths and tightens the skin around your eyes, fighting against aging. ThermiEyes utilizes the warmth of radiofrequency (RF) energy, sitting at around 100 degrees F, to heat the skin around your eyes. This RF energy rejuvenates the sensitive skin around your eyes. It promotes the natural collagen and elastin production in your body, which helps the skin around your eyes tighten and smooth out. The RF energy causes the existing collagen fibers to shrink, and this process continues after treatment due to the stimulated collagen and elastin production. These compounds give your skin structure and lift. ThermiEyes also helps drain your lymphatic system to aid in smoothing your skin.
How It Works
ThermiEyes helps treat aged and wrinkled skin without the need for injections, incisions, or downtime. It’s a quick process that causes little to no discomfort. Compared to other treatments and technologies, a recent study showed that this procedure was both tolerable and safe for all patients looking to rejuvenate their skin. Many patients have likened how the treatment feels to hot stone therapy.
Before the procedure begins, a cool gel is placed on the treatment area. Next, your provider will take a handheld device that delivers radiofrequency energy and move along the desired area. While the device does deliver heat to the treatment area, it adjusts itself automatically based on the temperature of the patient’s skin, ensuring there is no pain or discomfort. The entirety of the treatment lasts under 30 minutes.
After the treatment is complete, you can go back to your normal day to day activities. There is no downtime required following ThermiEyes treatment. You can even apply makeup and go back to wearing contact lenses.
The only known side effect of this treatment is that you may experience some redness or swelling following the procedure, but it will resolve itself on its own naturally.
Through ThermiEyes, you can:
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Tighten the skin surrounding your eyes
- Improve the texture, strength, and elasticity of your skin
- Decrease crepiness
- Reduce the look of tired eyes
- Improve the look of drooping or sagging skin
Patients often notice results almost immediately after their first treatment. However, we recommend that you continue to receive up to three treatments for optimal results. These treatments can be spaced once every two weeks. Before your first treatment, schedule a consultation at First Eye Care North Arlington to learn if this treatment is right for you.
ThermiEyes and Dry Eye
ThermiEyes doesn’t just help improve and rejuvenate the skin around your eyes. When this procedure stimulates the collagen and elastin production in your skin, it helps improve the quality of your tears, which helps relieve symptoms of dry eye. Dry eye occurs when the tear production in your eyes is affected, either impacting the quality of tears or how much tears your eyes make. Your eyes need tears to properly lubricate them and keep them healthy. When the quality of tears is affected, so are your eyes.
Studies have shown that ThermiEyes helps improve the elasticity and reduce the laxity of the eyes, which helps improve symptoms of dry eye. The study showed that over half of the participants showed improvements to their symptoms. This quick, nonsurgical treatment option can not only improve the appearance of your eyes by combating aging skin, but it can also improve symptoms of dry eye.
First Eye Care North Arlington is happy to offer our patients the innovative treatment, ThermiEyes. This procedure utilizes radiofrequency energy to smooth out and tighten their skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. Not only does this procedure help your eyes appear younger, but it can also improve symptoms of dry eye. ThermiEyes is a simple and safe procedure that can be completed in under 30 minutes.
