Your eyes are surrounded by some of your body’s thinnest and most delicate skin, which often shows drooping, wrinkling, and other effects of aging long before your time. ThermiEyes® offers a nonsurgical, anti-aging solution that smooths away wrinkles and tightens skin naturally by stimulating your body’s own tissue repair and skin rejuvenation system.
Dr. David O’Day is a highly skilled ophthalmologist and surgeon who leads the team at Charleston Cornea & Refractive Surgery. His top priorities include patient safety and the effectiveness of the treatments offered at his thriving practice. He often recommends ThermiEyes as a safe and effective nonsurgical solution for helping reverse the signs of aging on the skin surrounding your eyes.
What is ThermiEyes?
ThermiEyes is a procedure that uses gentle warmth from radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten and rejuvenate the delicate skin around your eyes. Applied via an innovative handheld device that’s designed to safely treat the eye area, the heat produced by RF energy tightens skin and helps smooth away wrinkles.
The warmth also stimulates natural collagen and elastin production, which your body uses to repair and rebuild damaged tissue.
- Improves the appearance of drooping and sagging skin
- Decreases crepiness
- Lessens the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Enhances your skin’s texture, strength, and elasticity
- Diminishes the tired eye appearance often associated with aging
What happens during a ThermiEyes treatment?
ThermiEyes treatments are fast, taking about 20-30 minutes for both eyes. After applying clear gel to the targeted area, your clinician rolls the rounded end of a specially designed ThermiEyes handheld device gently over your skin in a circular motion. As your skin warms, the restorative effects of natural collagen and elastin production begin.
With its temperature-controlled design, the handheld device delivers steady, gentle heat that most patients report as significantly relaxing, much like a therapeutic massage. It’s completely noninvasive — no surgery or injections required. And there’s no recovery time necessary. You can expect to return to your normal daily routine without limitations immediately after a session.
How long before I see results with ThermiEyes?
The skin tightening effects of ThermiEyes are immediate. And with the enhanced production of collagen and other natural tissue-rebuilding substances stimulated by the therapy, you’ll notice continued improvement in the skin around your eyes for several weeks following a session.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Every case is different, but for optimal results, we generally recommend you consider undergoing three ThermiEyes sessions spaced about two weeks apart. Before scheduling your first session, we meet with you and discuss the treatment in detail as well as your goals and expectations for the therapy.
Is ThermiEyes safe?
The science behind ThermiEyes, as well as the safety protocols used in its design, make it a safe and effective choice for reducing the appearance of aging in the sensitive skin around your eyes. We’ve seen fantastic cosmetic results with ThermiEyes treatments here at Charleston Cornea.
It may also be a successful alternative to surgery for issues such as ptosis (droopy lids) that can interfere with your vision and affect eye health.
