IPL uses precise pulses of light to reduce the inflammation that is typically associated with dry eye disease.
What is IPL?
IPL is a light-based, non-invasive treatment done in the area below the eyes to manage dry eye. It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment for dry eye management. IPL is safe, gentle, and backed by more than 20 clinical studies.
What does IPL do?
IPL uses precise pulses of light to reduce the inflammation that is typically associated with dry eye disease, improve tear break-up time, and increase meibomian gland functionality. This application can significantly relieve dry eye indicators and has a multi-factorial effect, including:
- Increasing tear break-up time
- Eliminating blood vessels that contribute to inflammation
- Improving meibomian gland functionality
- Reducing the amount of demodex mites and bacteria living around your eyes
What to expect during the IPL treatment
This treatment is fast and simple. Your eye doctor will apply a coupling gel to the treatment area and cover your eyes with shields. After applying light to the skin, you may experience a warm sensation. The treatment is gentle with minimum discomfort and only takes 10–15 minutes.
