ThermiEyes® is a procedure that is FDA-approved for cosmetic tightening of the skin around the eyes to reduce wrinkles without injections or surgery. Coincidentally, the procedure has also been found to relieve chronic dry eye symptoms and signs. The ThermiEyes® procedure, using the same technology as ThermiSmooth Face is performed using a specially designed, temperature-controlled, hand-held device. The device gently heats the skin surface using radiofrequency energy. It is safe, noninvasive, painless, and takes just a few minutes per eye.

What happens during a ThermiEyes® treatment?
A small amount of gel is first applied to the area of skin’s surface in the treatment area. A specific target temperature is set and the hand piece is moved across the treatment area gently in a sweeping or circular pattern. The system will automatically adjust the temperature of the device based on skin temperature readings from the patient’s skin.
How soon will I see results after a ThermiEyes® treatment?
While multiple treatments may be necessary, most patients will see some results after the first treatment with lasting results developing over 3 to 6 months. We suggest waiting a minimum of 2 weeks between each treatment.
There is no downtime after a ThermiEyes® treatment. Patients can immediately resume all daily activities, wearing make-up and contact lenses. The total treatment time is generally between 20-30 minutes, and patients have no discomfort afterward. There may be a very mild degree of redness at the treatment site, but that will resolve quickly on its own.
