IPL: An Excellent Technology for Treating Skin and Eyelid Inflammation

Inflammatory skin diseases that often lead to dry eye disease are characterized by the formation of vascular abnormalities, which release inflammatory agents. When occurring in proximity to the eyes, these mediators propagate via the orbital vasculature to the eyelids, often resulting in inflammation of the eyelids that may trigger ocular complications such as dry eye and meibomian gland disease. 

IPL is an excellent technology for treating vascular skin lesions. IPL is selectively absorbed in the hemoglobin of abnormal blood vessels, and destroys them by thrombosis. A major source of inflammation threatening the eyelids is then removed.

The Optima IPL is the next-generation IPL technology developed by Lumenis. With every pulse of light, this first-of-its-kind, energy-based therapy works to control the inflammatory process and to stop the vicious cycle of inflammation, reducing the need for medications and providing long-lasting results.
