What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy?

Intense Pulsed Light IPL Therapy for Dry Eye

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a simple dry eye treatment option that uses quick bursts of light to change blood vessels near the surface of the skin around the eyes. Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is the leading cause of dry eye syndrome and occurs when a blockage prevents the glands from producing the necessary oils for a proper tear film layer. IPL therapy has been shown to reduce the blockage and helps the eyes produce a better quality tear film.

What Is Rosacea?

Intense Pulsed Light therapy can treat rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition where redness and blood vessels are visible on your face, usually around the chin, nose, cheeks, and forehead. Small, red bumps that have a similar appearance to acne can also form around the face. Rosacea symptoms may flare up for weeks to months, fade away, and then return.

Treating Rosacea With IPL Therapy

Rosacea Treated With IPL

IPL treats rosacea by emitting multiple wavelengths of pulsating light to target and close off blood vessels. This light heats cells in the skin and constricts the blood vessels. The body then removes the damaged tissue naturally.

IPL also improves skin color and texture by stimulating collagen production, which improves fine lines.
