ICON IPL (intense pulse light therapy) is an innovative treatment for ocular rosacea and dry eye. As a treatment for dry eye, it is a groundbreaking approach. With IPL technology, light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the abnormal vessels that are the root cause of the inflammation associated with dry eye. The body’s natural reaction to the treatment removes the abnormal vessels and heals the inflammation threatening the skin and eyelid.
IPL therapy is designed to address Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), the root cause of evaporative dry eye. By focusing treatment on MGD, your doctor is able to not only offer symptom relief, but also to slow the progression of your chronic dry eye condition.
Minimizing these pro-inflammatory vessels in the eyelids reduces the expression of toxic mediators that cause further destruction of the oil glands in the eyelids. Total Focus is the only office in north Edmonton currently employing this cutting edge technology and seeing wonderful results. There is no downtime and the treatment is entirely non-invasive.
If you have tried various forms and combinations of eye drops, lifestyle changings or medications for your dry, irritated eyes with little success or relief, then the advanced dry eye clinic at Total Focus Northgate may have a better solution for you.
