RF helps to stimulate blood flow and reduce inflammation around the eyes, addressing some of the root causes of dry eye. By promoting better circulation and reducing inflammation, patients often experience improved tear production and retention.

During the procedure, patients will experience a gentle warming sensation around the eye area. The treatment is painless, and most find it to be a comfortable, relaxing experience. It is also a very quick treatment, typically lasting about 15-20 minutes. Following the session, patients can resume their daily activities without any downtime. Results may be noticeable after a single session, with continued improvements over time.
