Dry Eye Treatments: The Envision IPL/RF Platform

Dry Eye treatment

We're excited to introduce you to a revolutionary new technology in our practice: The Envision by InMode. This advanced device combines the power of two remarkable technologies - the Forma-I (RF) and the Lumecca I (IPL) - to offer a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution for dry eye relief.

Dry Eyes are Uncomfortable

Dry eye syndrome can be a daily struggle, characterized by symptoms like irritation, burning, excessive tearing, and redness. 85% of the time, this discomfort is due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), where the oil-secreting glands in your eyelids fail to secrete or produce enough oil to keep your eyes lubricated.

Forma-I Radiofrequency:

Forma-I utilizes bipolar radiofrequency (RF) technology to specifically target the symptoms of dry eye disease caused by MGD. Here's how it works:

Safe Heating for Meibomian Glands: Forma-I safely heats the meibomian glands, gently “melting” the buttery-like substance and aiding in the release of trapped oils.

Stimulating Collagen Production: This heat stimulation encourages the production of collagen, attracting white blood cells and stem cells to the area. There is an anti-wrinkle effect for the fine lines around the eyes!

Clearing Obstructions: Forma-I opens up clogged meibomian glands, allowing for improved tear production and secretion in the long run


Lumecca-I IPL:

The Lumecca-I, unlike traditional IPLs, stands out due to its high-intensity light. This intensified light penetrates deeper into the skin's layers, making it effective for managing dry eye caused by inflammation, ocular rosacea, and Demodex infestations. Lumecca I distinguishes itself from conventional IPL in several ways:

Higher Light Intensity: Lumecca-I employs a higher light intensity, allowing it to penetrate more deeply into the skin. This makes it more effective in treating conditions like sun damage, acne scars, and rosacea-induced redness.

Fewer Sessions: Thanks to its higher intensity, you often see faster improvements with Lumecca-I when compared to traditional IPL.

Shorter Recovery: Patients undergoing Lumecca I can enjoy a shorter recovery period when compared to traditional IPL.

Less Painful: Due to the advanced cooling technology, Lumecca-I patients report little or no pain during treatment.

A single Lumecca-I treatment can lead to a remarkable improvement in your skin. The best results can be witnessed four to six weeks after treatment. Depending on your specific concerns, our dry eye specialists may recommend a series of sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Lumecca I treatments are quick, typically lasting from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the target area and the severity of the condition. This makes the process straightforward and time-effective, even for the busiest of patients.
