What is Dry Eye?

Dry eye is a common condition in which a person doesn’t have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision, and they can be inadequate or unstable for a variety of reasons.

Dry eyes feel uncomfortable. Patients suffering from dry eye syndrome have reported a stinging or burning irritation in and around the eye. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike, being outdoors in the harsh Albertan winters or just from looking at a computer screen for a few too many hours.

Radiofrequency (RF)

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy is a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen.

TempSure Envi is the latest and the gold standard of RF for dry eye treatment and skincare currently on the market. Commonly used as a fast, effective, non-invasive method of improving the skin’s appearance (texture, tone and elasticity), it is also the most efficient and effective way to treat dry eye syndrome.

ICON IPL (Intense Pulse Light Therapy)

ICON™️ IPL (intense pulse light therapy) is an innovative treatment for ocular rosacea and dry eye. Initially found to be beneficial for treating facial rosacea for the past 20 years it has been more recently used in the dry eye field. Countless studies show its effectiveness at reducing fine ocular rosacea along the upper and lower lid margins.

Minimizing these pro-inflammatory vessels in the eyelids reduces the expression of toxic mediators that cause further destruction of the oil glands in the eyelids. Utilizing this technology is a game-changer in treating ocular surface disease and dry eye. Total Focus is the only office in north Edmonton currently employing this cutting edge technology and seeing wonderful results. Like TempSure Envi, the ICON IPL also does not have any downtime and is also non-invasive. The light therapy of the future is here at Total Focus to help us see 20/20 and beyond

Reduce the Signs of Aging Without Surgery

As we age, our skin loses its laxity and firmness and develops fine lines and wrinkles. It isn’t uncommon to want to maintain a youthful appearance, but naturally, our bodies will begin to show changes as collagen and elastin production slows.

Taking care of your skin from a young age with a proper at-home skincare routine is one way to prevent fine lines and age spots from developing, however, in-office treatments are the most effective way to improve age-related concerns.

Depending on your wants and needs, we’ll target the areas where the skin has become thinner due to aging. Areas like these are easily treated to provide you with an instant glow and younger-looking appearance:

– Forehead lines
– Frown lines
– Crow’s feet
– Smile lines
– Wrinkles
– Cellulite

Patients who received the TempSure Envi treatment have reported a pleasant, comfortable experience similar to a hot stone massage. The procedure is safe and allows you to return to your normal daily activities immediately following treatment.

TempSure Envi FAQ

What Can I Expect During My Appointment?

When you come in for your consultation at Total Focus, Dr. Torbeih and his team will discuss your goals and create a custom treatment plan for you. During your treatment, you will experience a gentle warming sensation around the target area(s).

After the treatment, there is usually only a slight amount of redness on the skin, which quickly subsides. Immediately following your treatment, you will be able to return to your daily activities!

Am I a Candidate?

TempSure Envi works on all skin types, and everyone is a candidate. Treatments are primarily recommended to patients who experience skin laxity (looseness) around the eyes, baggy eyes, and dry eyes. We love this radiofrequency laser system because it can treat the smaller, more delicate areas on the face.

Does the Procedure Hurt?

TempSure Envi has been carefully designed with comfort in mind. The radiofrequency laser provides a pleasant and effective treatment every time. Most of our patients describe the treatment as comfortable.

How Long Are the Treatments?

Treatments last about 30-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated. There is no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately.

How Many Treatments are Needed?

We usually recommend that you schedule a series of treatments and regular maintenance appointments to help your body counteract the loss of collagen that is part of the natural aging process.

When Will I See Results?

Instantly! You will walk away from your appointment with a natural glow, and what many patients describe as a “tighter” feeling. Best of all, your results will continue to enhance over time.

Life’s too short not to have beautiful skin. Please, book an appointment today and find out if Tempsure Envi is right for you!
