DRY EYE DISEASE TREATMENT PROCESS
Intense Pulsed Light is a light-based treatment for the skin-gland disease of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. Inflammatory skin diseases are characterized by the formation of vascular abnormalities which release inflammatory agents. Inflammation is the main cause of Dry Eye Disease. Abnormal blood vessels cause inflammation and constriction on the meibomian glands, restricting the glands and causing the meibum to congeal. During this four treatment process, the abnormal blood vessels will be sealed with the light. The inflammation of the walls of blood vessels will reduce and the carbon bonds of the meibum will break. This will allow for normal secretion of the meibum to return and will help to reinstate normal blinking. After the third and fourth treatments, the meibomian glands return to their original function and provide extreme relief for the Dry Eye Patient. This procedure is a preventative way to treat Ocular Rosacea and fallout of meibomian glands.
Other benefits that may result as a side effect of the treatment include:
REDUCTION IN BACTERIAL LOAD AND DEMODEX ON THE LID AND CHEEK AREA
REDUCTION IN FINE LINES AND WRINKLES, while stimulating the production of collagen levels
REDUCTION IN RED AND BROWN SPOTS DUE TO AGING AND VASCULARITY
REDUCTION AND CLEARING OF ACUTE AND CHRONIC CHALAZIA
