Dry eye syndrome (DES) is one of the most common eye conditions, and it occurs when either not enough tears are produced to properly moisturize the eyes, or the tears that are produced are of poor quality. DES is especially common in Alberta due to our extremely dry climate, particularly in the winter. For anyone who has experienced dry eyes, you know they often come with undesirable signs and symptoms like redness, stinging, burning, grittiness, and extreme discomfort. Don’t let that discomfort have any space in your life this winter, because we have a new solution for you.
An innovative option for the treatment of dry eyes is the use of radiofrequency technology (RF). The InMode Forma Radiofrequency (RF) treatment is a therapeutic dry eye treatment that has been proven effective in treating DES resulting from Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, and we are so excited to have brought this technology to Sphere. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) occurs when the tiny, oil-producing meibomian glands that are essential for hydrating the eyes, become blocked or clogged. The oils these glands produce is essential for preventing rapid tear evaporation and ensuring that enough tears are being produced to keep the eyes moist.
The InMode Forma Radiofrequency treatment is a specialized in-office treatment that uses RF energy to open the clogged meibomian glands, soften the oils within the glands, and improve oil flow, resulting in the elimination or lessening of dry eye symptoms. The treatment is quick, painless and offers significant symptom relief with zero downtime. The InMode Forma Radiofrequency technology has the added benefit of tightening collagen and elastin for progressively rejuvenated skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The best news – this radiofrequency technology can be focused to just your eyes or applied to your entire face to reveal your best skin! For maximum effectiveness, we recommend a series of four treatments every one to two weeks.
