IPL therapy is a treatment applied to the face which sends an intense but therapeutic heat source near the level of the meibomian glands to help dissolve the plugged secretions and restore function.

Recent data indicates that ninety percent of patients show improvement in their evaporative Dry Eye symptoms with regular IPL therapy.
