IPL Treatment for Dry Eye
Find real relief from dry, red, fatigued eyes caused by skin and eyelid inflammation.
Do you suffer from dry, red, tired or burning eyes? It might be caused by skin and eyelid inflammation. This common condition affects millions of Americans every year; in fact, over 85% of skin and eyelid inflammation patients also suffer from inflammatory ocular conditions, such as dry eye.
Have you been frustrated with the need for frequent eye drop use in your attempt to control your symptoms? At Belcara Health, we offer a revolutionary treatment using IPL technology to get rid of the root cause of your dry, red, fatigued and burning eyes and help your eyes feel calm and clear – while reducing your dependency on eye drops.
How does it work?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a light-based technology commonly used for various skin conditions, including rosacea and discoloration. During the procedure, a strategic level of light pulses is administered to penetrate your skin and target the root cause of the inflammation. As the IPL treatment treats your overall skin appearance, your eyelid inflammation is treated and improved as well. IPL procedures are highly effective, gentle and safe.
At Belcara Health, we use advanced Lumenis M22 IPL technology, trusted by leading professionals around the world and FDA cleared for over 20 different skin indications.
Benefits to IPL Treatments for Dry Eye:
- Treats the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms
- Provides long-term relief
- The procedure is safe, comfortable and quick, with no downtime
- Reduces your dependency on eye drops
This treatment is safe, with no discomfort or downtime, and will improve the comfort of your eyes and the clarity of your vision.
During the Procedure
You 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.
After the 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.
