What is Optilight by Lumenis?
Optilight is an innovative solution that treats redness, irritated itchy eyes, and skin inflammation around and under the eyes. If you have rosacea and inflammation you’re more than likely to be also be suffering from Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), the cause of chronic dry eye. Over 20% of the population is estimated to suffer from this disease, including 70% of women over the age of 40.
The Optilight treatment uses light pulses that penetrate under-eye tissue to create heat which targets the abnormal vessels that are the root cause of the inflammation. By reducing these vessels it allows tear glands to be more productive and less irritated which results in brighter and less tired appearing eyes.
The Optilight procedure is a non-invasive solution and is the first and only IPL treatment authorized by the FDA to help treat signs of dry eyes disease.
At Jupiter Dermatology & Hair Restoration, we are certified Optilight providers and one of the first and only practices in Florida.
