IPL saved me.  I felt scratching pain every time I blinked and none of the drops and treatments I had tried worked. After my IPL, I finally feel relief. Dr. Adler was so lovely and knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable right away. I HIGHLY recommend IPL with Dr. Adler.”

What to Expect During Your IPL Procedure

IPL ProdedureYou might experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to your skin, but the treatment is gentle and you should not feel uncomfortable. Each session lasts approximately 15 minutes. Depending upon the severity of your condition, an additional procedure to remove a portion of your meibomian glands, to accelerate your skin and eyelid healing process, may be recommended.

What to Expect After Your IPL Procedure

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness and discomfort in the treated areas, which usually disappears within a few hours. Most patients resume their daily activities the same day. Sunlight should be avoided for a few days following the treatment and sunscreen should be used.

For optimal results, 5 sessions are typically recommended, with 3-4 weeks in between. Maintenance treatments, usually once every 6-12 months, are also recommended for optimal long-term results.
