Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatment
What is IPL?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Therapy is a common dermatology treatment that is used for skin conditions such as rosacea, sun damage, acne scarring, and wrinkles. Recent studies show that it also effectively treats chronic dry eye because it has multiple mechanisms of action that target the root cause of symptoms. Treatment with IPL uses a series of controlled, high energy light pulses to directly reduce inflammation and vascularization of the eyelid, liquefy and unclog tear glands to stimulate healthy tear production and keep eyes healthy, moisturized, and comfortable.
For best results, your doctor will recommend an initial series of four IPL treatments, performed once a month over the course of four months. After the initial series of treatments, most people may need only occasional maintenance treatments depending on the severity of their dry eye symptoms.
