Does ThermiSmooth around the eyes cause dry eye?
Using ThermiSmooth to treat the skin around the eyes should not cause dry eyes. I would recommend that you follow-up with the physician who performed the procedure.
ThermiSmooth does not cause dry eye
ThermiSmooth should not cause dry eye - it actually improves blood flow to treated tissues causing an overall rejuvenation. The treatment should have no detrimental effects on the nearby tear ducts or lacrimal glands - even if those structures were included in the treatment zone, I would expect the result to be a positive one, rather than a negative. It is possible that some of the coupling gel used during the treatment could have gotten into your eye and maybe irritated it some, but that's the only way I think your symptoms could be related to that treatment.
