As people age, dry, irritated eyes and fine facial lines can make anyone appear older than they feel. Many have chronic dry eye disease and show mild to moderate signs of facial aging. These signs include wrinkles, sagging skin, and less elasticity. Eterna is an exciting new treatment that can address both concerns
Eterna uses energy to warm skin tissue up to three millimeters deep. This triggers the body's natural renewal process to produce fresh collagen and elastin. Collagen provides plumpness and structure, while elastin fibers allow flexibility and snap-back. These proteins make the skin look younger. They smooth out lines and wrinkles and tighten sagging areas.
The radiofrequency energy also helps clear blocked meibomian glands along the eyelid margins. These glands produce an oily layer that keeps your tears from drying up quickly. When the meibomian glands become clogged, dry eye symptoms often result. Eterna heats to remove blockages and debris, allowing glands to function properly. This provides dry eye relief.
Eterna treatment has many potential benefits:
The Eterna procedure is not invasive. Eterna can reduce those first signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. It can also tighten sagging skin and relieve dry, irritated eyes.
Getting Eterna is quick and comfortable; no anesthesia or recovery is necessary. The technician will apply a gel on the skin and use a handheld tool to deliver the radiofrequency waves. There will be a feeling of warmth and tingling during the 30-minute treatment, without any pain.
You will likely see some improvement after a session or two. But for optimal results, your provider will suggest four to six sessions, with a few weeks between each. Over three to six months, the skin will look smoother and more youthful as natural collagen production ramps up. Touch-up sessions every six months help maintain the effects.
Eterna offers a safe, nonsurgical way to renew your complexion and eyes. After treatment, the skin may feel slightly dry for a day or two. It is best to drink plenty of water and use a rich moisturizer. Avoid direct sun on the treated areas for about three days, if possible. This gives the skin time to heal and prevents sun damage that could undo the benefits.
The designers of Eterna created it to treat mild to moderate facial aging and dry eye disease. Good candidates for Eterna are men and women ages 30-80 concerned about the following issues:
You may need extra treatments if your skin is saggy, eyelids droop, or eyes are parched. Along with using Eterna, treatment plans will be tailored to each patient’s goals and needs. Individual results will vary, so make sure to discuss treatment choices with a certified dermatologist or oculoplastic surgeon.
