What Is IPL?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a noninvasive treatment that can help improve various skin conditions and provide relief from dry eye symptoms. At Dr. Bishop & Associates, we now offer the Lumecca-I device for IPL treatments. 

This innovative technology delivers gentle pulses of light to stimulate the production of collagen, help reduce inflammation around the eyes, and improve the function of tear glands. By targeting the underlying causes of dry eye, IPL can provide lasting relief and improve your overall eye health. 

Experience the transformative power of Lumecca-I and say goodbye to dry, irritated eyes. Contact us to schedule your appointment today.

How Does IPL Treatment Work?

The Lumecca-I IPL device helps our team reduce inflammation and provide relief for patients dealing with dry eye symptoms like burning eyes by warming the skin near the eye.

During treatment, you may experience a bright flash of light and a snapping sensation on your skin. It’s completely normal to experience some redness and gentle warming on the skin following treatment, too—it usually fades within an hour.

Benefits of Using IPL to Treat Dry Eye

The Lumecca-I IPL treatment is professionally administered by our experienced eye care team. Following your consultation, we can help prepare a personalized treatment plan to target the root cause of your dry eye issues.

Some benefits of IPL treatment for dry eyes can include:

  • Providing relief from dry eye discomfort
  • Reducing inflammation and promoting healing
  • Stimulating collagen production for improved eye health
  • Targeting the root cause of dry eye to provide long-lasting results
  • A minimal downtime and recovery period
  • Enhancing your overall eye comfort and quality of life

How Long Does IPL Take to Show Results?

While every patient is different, many can notice improvements with 1–2 treatment sessions. Typically, it takes around 4 appointments to achieve the best results from IPL therapy.

If you have severe dry eyes, our team may recommend additional treatments. Results can vary from patient to patient, so our team will discuss how many treatment sessions we recommend based on your eye health.
