At Sphere, we care deeply about your eye health and your whole-body wellness, and consequently we are incredibly excited about one of our more recent offerings that has been moving so many of our patients toward their best eye and physical help. We are thrilled to offer an advanced treatment called Forma (and Forma I for use around the eye), that targets the root of dry eye disease and, also, highly benefits your skin using radiofrequency therapy. This increasingly popular treatment has shown promising results in promoting better eye and skin health and is an amazing non-surgical option for both. Let’s explore more about the benefits of radiofrequency for dry eyes and overall skin wellness!

Dry Eyes

Millions of Canadians live with undiagnosed dry eye disease, especially in our dry Calgary climate. You can take our short quiz here to find out if this might be you. The great news is, we’re here to help!

Radiofrequency therapy has been proven effective in alleviating dry eye disease caused by meibomian gland dysfunction. The radiofrequency treatment generates thermal energy that liquifies the oils clogging the meibomian glands. As these oils break up, the quality and consistency of the tears improves as well which leads to better ocular lubrication and relief from dry eyes.

Radiofrequency energy is also known to safely and effectively reduce deep inflammation in the eye tissues. Inflammation is a common underlying cause of dry eyes, and by reducing it, radiofrequency treatments can provide significant relief and improve overall eye health.

Skin Benefits

Non-surgical radiofrequency has been used in dermatology and aesthetics for over 20 years to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by safely distributing high frequency electrical currents onto the tissue to produce heat. The heat stimulates collagen production and skin regeneration giving you a more youthful appearance. At Sphere, our Forma treatment is a safe and non-invasive procedure for all skin types, and we love that it does not require downtime.

Let’s break down the skin benefits a bit further:

Collagen Stimulation – As outlined above, radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, promoting collagen production. We hear so much about collagen, but what is it exactly? Simply put, collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin. As we age, it naturally reduces and is the common cause of skin aging. Radiofrequency treatments help with the production of new collagen giving you results of tighter, firmer skin with better elasticity.

Wrinkle Reduction + Skin Tightening – As the collagen and elastin production increases due to the application of radiofrequency, the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin is reduced leading to improved skin tone and firmness.

We are so excited about all the benefits of our Forma and Forma I treatments, and we can’t wait to be part of your eye and skin health journey. Radiofrequency therapy offers so many great benefits for both dry eyes and skin health, and we love that it’s a non-surgical alternative. So, if dry eyes are a concern for you, or if you’re interested in enhancing and optimizing your skin’s health and appearance, let’s connect! We’re here to answer your questions and walk you through the radiofrequency therapy process.
