Radio Frequency Treatment

Radio Frequency (RF) therapy uses low energy radiation to heat the deep subcutaneous layers of your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and liquifying the meibum in the meibomian glands. Once this oil is liquified, the meibomian glands can start to function properly, relieving your dry eye symptoms.
