Fine lines and crow’s feet can pull attention away from your eyes, which should be the true showstopper of your face. What’s more, wrinkles around your eyes are often the first to make an appearance given the sensitive skin around your eyes.
At Urban Eye Care in Seattle, Washington, Dr. Jennifer Andrews and our team offer a comprehensive lineup of vision services to ensure you see well throughout your life. We also want to help you take care of the skin around your eyes. That’s why our practice offers the TempSure™ Envi system, which uses innovative technology to breathe new life into aging skin.
Here’s a look at how TempSure Envi helps you say goodbye to the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes.
What causes wrinkles around the eyes?
Your skin is made up of layers. While you notice the effects of aging on the surface of your skin, the process actually begins deeper down. In the middle layers of your skin, collagen works with other proteins, like elastin, to create new skin cells and repair any damage.
The more collagen your body produces, the more frequently the top layer of skin is replaced, keeping your skin youthful and wrinkle-free. As you get older, your body makes less collagen. Production begins to drop in your 20s, and by your 40s it’s significantly reduced and continues to decline.
Around the eyes where the skin is thin, this reduced collagen production leads to wrinkles and fine lines appearing sooner than they do in other areas. That’s why you may notice fine lines and crow’s feet as your first signs of aging.
What is TempSure Envi and how does it work?
TempSure Envi uses noninvasive radiofrequency technology to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using a hand-held wand that emits radiofrequency energy, Dr. Andrews gently warms your skin and triggers the cellular changes that tighten your skin, helping you say goodbye to wrinkles around the eyes.
Radiofrequency energy for wrinkle reduction is a safe and effective way to naturally smooth out lines and wrinkles. The heat it produces stimulates the production of collagen, which repairs your skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
During your treatment, you may feel a gentle warming sensation in the skin being targeted. Treatments around the eyes typically don’t take long, making it something you can fit in during your lunch break. There’s no downtime required, meaning you can get back to your day immediately.
When will I see results with TempSure Envi?
Results first appear a few weeks after your TempSure Envi session. Full results take about 4-6 weeks as your skin continues to regenerate. Depending on your skin’s condition, Dr. Andrews may recommend additional TempSure sessions to help you reach and maintain your goals.
