IPL: An Excellent Technology for Treating Skin and Eyelid Inflammation

Inflammatory skin diseases are characterized by the formation of vascular abnormalities, which release inflammatory agents. When occurring in proximity to the eyes, these mediators propagate via the orbital vasculature to the eyelids, often resulting in inflammation of the eyelids that may trigger ocular complications.

IPL is an excellent technology for treating vascular skin lesions. IPL is selectively absorbed in the hemoglobin of abnormal blood vessels, and destroys them by thrombosis. A major source of inflammation threatening the eyelids is then removed.
