IMPROVE your quality of life
Eterna™ Dry Eye Treatment, Tampa, FL
Dry eye can be a frustrating and uncomfortable condition, affecting your quality of life and even leading to complications in severe cases. If you’re looking for a long-term solution, you may want to consider Eterna™ treatment. Eterna™ is an FDA-cleared non-invasive radiofrequency device that we use to help our patients find long-lasting relief from uncomfortable dry eye symptoms. Eterna™ not only helps treat dry eye symptoms but also offers additional benefits such as tightening loose skin and reducing wrinkles as well as treating styes.
How does Eterna™ help with dry eye?
Using a gentle radiofrequency energy emission, the Eterna™ device safely heats your skin, unblocking the meibomian glands in your eyelids. These tiny glands produce oil to help keep your eyes moist and healthy. If they get blocked or clogged, they can’t produce enough oil to lubricate your eyes, leading to dry eye. Eterna™ treatment warms and stimulates the glands to make more oil, improving tear quality and relieving dry eye symptoms.
What to expect during Eterna™ treatment
During treatment, our experienced eye doctor will use the Eterna™ device to gently heat the target area. No anesthetic is required. You may feel a warm sensation and some pressure on the eyelids during treatment, but it is typically painless. Eterna™ treatment is suitable for all skin types, and results typically improve over time. There is also no downtime, so you can go right back to what you were doing before the procedure.
While we use the Eterna™ device to treat dry eyes, it also has the added benefit of tightening loose skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The light energy stimulates collagen production, which is crucial for keeping our skin firm and elastic. This results in a natural lift and tightening effect, giving you younger-looking skin.
Treatment for stye
Eterna™ is also a safe and effective treatment option for styes. A stye is a small, red lump that appears on or inside the eyelid. It is typically caused by an infection of the oil glands located on the eyelids, leading to inflammation and swelling.
