So, how does IPL for Dry Eye work?
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is a technology that is completely customizable and used to gently and effectively treat eyelid inflammation. When used around the eye, the light pulses penetrate the tissue around the eye and create heat, targeting abnormal vessels that are causing the dry eye sensation. Your body’s natural reaction to the treatment removes the abnormal vessels and heals inflammation around the eyelid.
The IPL targets the pigment on the surface of your skin and vessels below the surface. In order to do this, Dr. Concool will place a coupling gel from ear to ear, under and around the eyes, and will provide protective glasses for you to wear during the treatment. Following your IPL treatment, Dr. Concool may perform a Meibomian Gland expression, which will help accelerate the eyelid healing process.
Do I need more than one session?
Eyelid inflammation can be relieved with as few at 1-2 treatments, however 4 sessions with 3-4 weeks in between the sessions are needed to achieve the absolute best results. After the 4 sessions are completed, you should only need to come back for maintenance treatments, every 6-12 months.
