What is IPL Treatment?

IPL is a Light-based therapy that provides a powerful, noninvasive solution for skin blemishes and eye discomfort. Luminance Vision offers Lumenis IPL and InMode Lumecca IPL, an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment designed to help your skin texture and reduce inflammation linked to dry eye disease. Request an appointment to find out if IPL is right for you.

How Does IPL Therapy Work?

IPL treatment is an in-office, non-surgical light treatment using light energy applied to the skin to eliminate skin discoloration and inflammation. This eliminates skin blemishes such as sun spots, spidery vessels, broken vessels, and redness from rosacea. IPL also kills unwanted skin bacteria and mites and minimizes pore size.

Using IPL To Treat Dry Eyes

At Luminance Vision, IPL is utilized to eliminate inflammation around the eyes and on the eyelids which is the driving force to dry eye disease. The eyes are protected with an eye shield, which looks like a contact lens, placed inside the eyes. The IPL light guide is then applied directly onto the eyelids to seal these blood vessels causing dry eye inflammation. IPL also kills unwanted bacteria and mites which can overpopulate the eyelash margin causing blepharitis.

Lumecca-I IPL by InMode: For Eyes

Inflammation is the driving force behind dry eye disease. When the skin around your eyes are inflamed, your eyes will constantly be in a vicious cycle of ocular rosacea, blepharitis, and meibomian gland dysfunction. Lumecca-I breaks this unhealthy and uncomfortable vicious cycle so that you can produce a healthy tear film and tears to lubricate your eyes without having to supplement with eye drops. Without a healthy tear film, your eyes dry out, get irritated, become inflamed and can flare up causing symptoms of redness, stinging, burning, watery, foreign body sensation, and blurred vision.

IPL by Lumenis

At Luminance Vision, we invest in your best skin. Our treatment solutions use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to safely and effectively even out your skin tone.

IPL works by administering broad spectrum pulsed light to the target area, where it’s absorbed by cells and turned into heat. The heat breaks down unwanted pigment, and your body’s natural healing process reveals smoother skin.

This treatment treats a wide range of skin issues, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven tone & texture

Lumecca IPL by InMode: For Skin

Lumecca IPL can treat various skin concerns such as uneven pigmentation, spidery vessels, sun spots, blemishes and acne scars.

Lumecca IPL treatment, also known as a photofacial, uses heat energy to safely penetrate the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis). This means that while the treatment is gentle on the top layer, it can work effectively on the cells that form your skin.

Lumecca by InMode helps rejuvenate your skin by eliminating common skin imperfections and blemishes and giving your clearer, brighter skin texture.

What To Expect

Before starting IPL therapy, we’ll meet for a consultation to make sure this is the right course of treatment for you. If we think you’ll benefit from IPL, we will schedule your treatment.

Your treatment session will take approximately 20 minutes. You will feel heat applied onto your skin. Most patients report little to no discomfort.

Depending on the goals of your treatment, 4 sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results.

In order to prepare your skin for IPL treatment, you should do the following prior to your treatment:
Avoid sun exposure and tanning 2 weeks prior to your scheduled treatment:

  • Don’t get a wax, chemical peel, or fillers for 2 weeks prior to your scheduled treatment
  • Discontinue tretinoin, retinA, retinol, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoic acid, adapalene, or any other acids except hyaluronic acid
  • Come into your scheduled treatment day bare faced
  • Let us know about any medications or supplements you are currently taking

To begin, we’ll place a cover over your eyes for protection and rub a clear gel on the target area.
The handheld device will be placed directly on your skin. When the light is administered, you may feel a mild stinging sensation followed by a quick cooling for comfort.

Patients have described the feeling as similar to the snapping of a rubber band.

An IPL service usually takes around 20–30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Immediately after treatment, it may feel like you have a mild sunburn. This sensation usually diminishes within 4–6 hours. Redness is also normal and can last a few days.

While your skin heals, it’s important to avoid sun exposure, wear SPF daily, and use gentle products for cleansing and moisturizing. Our team will go over specific aftercare instructions with you following your session.
